Leather Conditioners by Leather Magic!
Keep Your Fine Leather Soft, Supple and Make It Last!
When leather was first turned from an animal hide to usable leather, it was treated at the tannery with special oils known as “fatliquors” as well as other materials. These oils work to preserve the hide and make it soft, supple and flexible. Over time, these oils and chemical treatments will be lost due to cleaning, exposure to sunlight and other environmental conditions and just plain evaporation. When this happens, the leather fibers and finish begin to stiffen and loose flexibility. Cracking of the substrate fibers and finish deterioration begins. This is a naturally occurring phenomenon and may only be stopped and prevented with regular applications of Leather Conditioners. High quality Leather Conditioners replenish these lost oils and keep the leather soft and flexible. The use of the proper Leather Conditioner for your type of leather is critical to extending the functionality and appearance of your investment.

Using the proper leather conditioner for your specific leather type is very important. What works on one type of leather, may be disastrous for another! Basically, there are two types of leather that must be considered: Finished and Unfinished. Leather Magic!™ is among a very small and elite group of companies that manufactures two different Leather Conditioners. This allows us to meet the requirements of the two basic types of leather. If you are uncertain as to which product is right for you, please click on the link above to determine the type that you are working with.
A vast majority of leather conditioners, available on the market, use ingredients that are highly detrimental to fine upholstery and clothing leather. These ingredients include materials like Silicones, heavy oils and animal fats such as those found in neatsfoot oil, mink oil, saddle soap and others. You will also find “conditioners” that include exotic ingredients such as bees wax, tea tree oil and many other “catchy” ingredients. But, all of these can be detrimental and actually cause premature “aging” of the leather. This is because they do not evaporate, but rather accumulate within the fibers and eventually turn rancid and cause the fibers to rot and break down.
Leather Magic!™ uses only the finest original “Fat-Liquors” and chemicals as a base for our Leather Conditioners. This assures that you are putting the proper materials back into your leather so as to make it last a very, very long time!
