Simply the best leather conditioner in the UK. Moisturises, conditions and waterproofs dried-out leather. Ideal for leather sofas, classic car interiors, shoes and boots, handbags and leather jackets.
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:
I used this on all the leatherwork of the rockinghorseheaven.com horses so they could go to their new homes looking fantastic.
Top flight product, easy to use with instant results.
I have only had the balsam a few days but really pleased with the product it has already become my ‘finish’ of choice.
I bought the beeswax leather balsam to soften up an old Puma leather knife sheath. After it’s treatment I can now bend the sheath in half. It now looks far better and the treatment has tightened the grip on my knife. I went on to treat two other sheaths and am very pleased with the results.
I had some older 2mm blue colored leather cord that had lost it's softness . So I thought why not give this product a try . And it worked on the cord making it soft and pliable for my jewel making! I ran some conditioner over the cord with my hands , placed it in a container and applied warm heat to the cord. Let the cord sit for a day and it was softened and pliable to use. Great product. Glad I found your company. I am going to use it on my other leather goods! Charlene
I used it on a leather suite, very pleased with the result and would recommend to anyone plus my wife was delighted with the seeds.
I’ve used it on several leather chairs and couches at Carousel Consignment in Edmond. The results are phenomenal, bringing them back to nearly new appearance. It’s not uncommon for the piece to sell the next day. Even though the leather balsam seems more expensive, it goes a long ways and is actually quite economical for the increase in value of the piece it is used on. Well done. Nothing better.
I bought the leather balm for my long leather outdoor boots. The balm is great for nourishing and waterproofing the boots. It blends in well and is not greasy so I will use it on my sofa too!
It is very well presented in a lovely box along with a sponge and a packet of Sweetpeas which I will plant next year.
All in all very pleased.
Thank you 😊
Tried it on leather jackets I own the effect was brilliant, on the picture of one of the jackets I treated the right hand side has been treated the left hand side has not been treated. Will be using on my leather goods.
Also thanks for the sweet pea seeds
Leave it to the Gilboy's, to knock it out of the park once again with this product! Extraordinary!
Worked magic into my J.W. Hulme, soft leather briefcase. Restored the leather back to it's original suppleness, while adding a rich, slightly darker hue after applying. No residual stickiness or gummy feeling after, unlike many other cheaper products available.
In a day and age when the market is saturated with cheap, economical and sub-standard products and goods, it's encouraging to know companies such as Gilboy's, still exists. Their old-world recipes speak for themselves, and for those who appreciate the best, look no farther than Gilboy's.
Many thanks fellas!
After buying the Gilboy's Beeswax starter kit, I thought I'd give their leather treatment a try after about 10 years of neglect.
It's made a huge difference! The leather feels fresh and supple again and has it's nice sheen back.
The sweet peas included are an added bonus. Got to thank the Bees!
