Simply the best leather conditioner. Moisturises, conditions and helps to waterproof dried-out leather. Ideal for leather sofas, classic car interiors, shoes and boots, handbags, leather jackets, riding and stable-yard boots.


Our aim was to produce the very best beeswax leather conditioner 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.

Beautiful wax in the usual fantastic packaging

I have only used this a few times on my saddles. It seems to work really well and is very easy to use. I am unsure if it feeds the leather as yet. Gilboy's call it a conditioner so I trust it does.
Obviously a quality product.

Quality product

My Scandi chair had been in someone's loft for years and was in a dreadful, dry, dusty state. Gilboys leather balsam has made the leather feel very supple. The finish gives a lovely sheen but is not shiny, which is great. I've also used it for my Eames chair and am doing my Chesterfield sofa bit by bit. This product goes a long way. I would recommend it.

Having never used a beeswax based leather conditioner before I will never be going back. Gilboys conditioner leaves leather soft and subtle with a waterproof finish, couldn’t be easier or quicker to apply either. I used it on a full grain leather and after drying/absorbing there was no discernible colour change.

Lovely to apply and brings leather back to life. Have used on Dubarry boots (it’s much better than their own leather conditioner), Doc Marten’s and beaten up stable boots. All look transformed!

Excellent products

I love working with the Gilboys products, excellent results, I highly recommend these products.

Bryan Goodman (Surbiton, GB)
Leather conditioning balsam

Having used many Gilboys products before I thought I’d try the balsam on my leather sofas. It arrived promptly and the results were excellent. I used it on my shoes as well. An excellent product from a company that’s a pleasure to do business with. PS. My sweet pea seeds are coming on nicely.

Leather Balm

Very quick delivery.
Your leather balm worked its magic. My Ox blood red knee high boots have come up like new and are once again weatherproof.

Have recommended to family members and friends

love it :-)

I was looking for a natural product to deal with dog paw scratches all over our 2 month old sofa. This stuff is great - easy and quick to use - I did a large 3 seater sofa with 6 cushions much quicker than I thought I would and didn't use the whole pot, which also surprised me. Most scratches have gone and the deeper ones are dulled and leather feels stronger. I would definitely recommend :-)

New life in an old pouffe!

I bought a leather footstool on ebay for £25 to accompany a new armchair. It needed to be brought back to life so I searched for organic leather conditioner more out of curiosity to see if such a thing existed. Enter Gilboys into my life! Speedy delivery, thoughtful packaging, a light, fragrance-free natural conditioner that does the job and that will last. Really great value for money. See photos for before, during, after and forever! Thank you :)
