How it's Made:
We start with 100% organic cocoa butter.
Organic cocoa butter is not commonly used in leather treatment due to it’s high cost.
It has become one of the most highly sought after ingredients in natural cosmetic supplies and skin conditioners.
Cocoa butter is rich in vitamin E and contains natural antioxidants that help fight premature aging and deterioration.
Next, we add 100% organic beeswax.
Organic beeswax is safer and more effective than other barrier creams like petroleum jelly which contain harmful chemicals that can damage stitching.
It acts as a natural waterproofer, sealing the leather and protecting it from harsh elements.
In addition, beeswax functions as a moisturizer, softening stiff, rigid leather.
Finally, we introduce 100% pure sweet almond oil.
Pure sweet almond oil is rich in vitamins A, E and B. It’s a preferred ingredient in natural health and beauty products.
It’s hypoallergenic and safer than less expensive alternatives. It has many wonderful health benefits and works to improve the overall look and feel of leather goods.
No animal fats, synthetic compounds, preservatives or petroleum-based products.
Just the safest, highest quality natural ingredients.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Does Smith’s Leather Balm darken leather?
We’ve found that every leather responds differently. It’s important to remember that leather is porous like human skin. This means the leather will absorb the natural oils in topical conditioners which may have a slight, natural darkening effect. We find that most leathers will not darken beyond their original shade. Many types of leather respond by darkening slightly upon application and return to their original color within 24 hours once the balm has dried. For this reason, we suggest testing Smith’s Leather Balm on a small, hidden part of the garment to preview results.
Does Smith’s Leather Balm make leather waterproof?
Our balm contains organic beeswax which does function as a natural sealer, making leather water-resistant- but not completely waterproof.
What should I do if I’ve applied too much Smith’s Leather Balm?
You won’t need much balm to treat your leather goods, shoes, and boots. A little goes a long way. If your leather has a sticky or tacky feel after application- that’s a sign that you may have used too much. Fortunately, it’s easy to fix. One of the primary ingredients in our recipe is organic beeswax. Beeswax will not penetrate the surface of the leather. Instead, beeswax will rest upon the surface of the leather until buffed. This may leave a tacky film or residue that is easily removed by a horse hair brush or a simple buff with a rag.
