Simply the best leather conditioner for Leather. Moisturises, conditions and waterproofs dried-out leather. Ideal for leather sofas, classic car interiors, shoes and boots, handbags, leather jackets, riding and stableyard boots.
Our aim was to produce the very best beeswax leather balsam we could. We started with natural organically-produced and humanely-harvested beeswax from Buckfast Abbey that is triple-filtered and added to it the finest natural ingredients we possibly could.
Cosmetic-grade lanolin (wool wax) for its excellent emollient properties. It replicates the natural lubrication of animal skin, softening leather, preventing it from drying and allowing the fibres to move smoothly across each other and so reduces abrasive wear. It is both water-retaining and repellent.
T1-grade natural carnauba wax known as the 'queen of waxes' because it is the hardest of all the natural waxes. It provides a crystal-clear, hard-wearing, non-greasy waterproof finish that allows the natural colour of the leather to shine through while locking-in the softening oils and emollients.
Over time the natural tanning oils evaporate out of the hide. The smell of leather comes from these oils. If not replaced, leather will eventually dry out completely and become brittle and crack. We add sweet almond and coconut oils as a pleasant-smelling top-up to the lubricating tanning oils.
Cocoa butter is a natural emollient with great stability. This quality, coupled with natural antioxidants, Its velvety texture, pleasant fragrance and emollient properties have made it a popular ingredient in soaps and lotions.
This product is NOT suitable for use on suede or nubuck leather.
We are proud of the efforts we have made to minimise the impact our business has on the environment:
The Leather Balsam was beautifully packaged and the hand written note was a lovely touch
I recently purchased a Dutch Leather Sofa and was looking for a suitable product to treat the leather and am delighted with the result
I applied the leather balsam a couple of times now to revive a George Smith leather sofa - which was in a sorry state with scratches and dried leather - pictures attached show before and after image.
It is recovering nicely - the product is easy to apply leaves a non sticky finish when buffed ( I don't overbuff).
Very pleased & would use again . Packaging great idea to reuse box.
Being a ethical person this ticked all the boxes and more.Another quality product from Gilboy's.I purchased it initially for my leather settee.It was so easy to put on and seems it will least forever.I also used it on my walking boots and used it on a microfibre towel to work into the leather.Very impressed with both uses.
Beautiful packaging and love the fact the glass jar can be returned for a refill. The sweetpea seeds are an added bonus too. I have only tried on a small patch of our leather sofa, so far and all seems good. I did have to buff it off the next day as it seems a little sticky, but maybe I used too much. It has brought up the natural look beautifully and looks much less dry. Have to pick a time when I can keep the cat off to do the rest!
This product came very nicely packaged with a personally handwritten note included which was lovely.
I also loved the quality and recyclability of the product and packaging.
I have used the product once, on my leather, waterproof stableyard boots and it enhanced both the colour and integrity of my boots.
I am extremely happy with the product and will be utilising the refill service when required.
I was looking for an all natural leather conditioner. While a little more on the expensive side, this product seemed to tick all the boxes, In regards to ethical and green concerns. Being able to return the container for a refill was a big plus, and I’m always keen to use all natural products whenever I can.
It arrive well packaged, with a hand written note, prepaid return label for refills, seeds and instructions. All nice touches.
I reconditioned a favourite pair of leather shoes yesterday with the balm and it was very easy to use and gave a great result. A little goes a long way so I don’t think I’ll be sending it back for a refill for a while yet!
Very pleased. Thank you!
I was given your antique gold furniture polish as a Christmas present and used it to revive my Victorian mahogany dining table. I was so impressed with the result that I bought your beeswax leather balsam to use on an Errol leather chair and a ‘camel stool’ that had seen better days and lived under a sheepskin rug! I wish I had taken before and after photos because the transformation is amazing. Both products were very easy to apply and beautifully packaged. Your YouTube video is excellent too, and I can definitely recommend your products.
The little box with sweet pea seeds is such a lovely touch and makes you feel you are dealing with people who really care. Five gold stars to you and your team.
I ordered this to use on my dad's trunk which is over 70 years old. he used it when he first left home to work in the city. It had sat in an attic for about 50 years and was in pretty rough shape. The very thin leather on it has come out beautifully. This product saved the trunk.
