We started with organically-produced and humanely-harvested beeswax from local beekeepers that is triple-filtered and added 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.

I used this to rejuvenate a pair of Edwardian chairs. It requires little to be applied and produces a lovely suppleness and slight sheen. It also has a pleasant, light scent, unlike some of the competitor's products, which rely on linseed. I highly recommend Gilboy's Leather Balsam.

I was expecting

I was expecting quite a lot from this pot of leather polish and I have to say that it delivered. What was dry, parched and fragile looking leather now looks more supple and generally healthier. I would recommend it if you love your leather.

Christine Stewart (Edinburgh, GB)
Spectacular service

I buy most of my purchases online and have done for many years and I have never dealt with a company which made the experience feel so pleasant . I felt that the experience was personal and that I mattered instead of the usual impersonal careless treatment so often delivered by online companies . I bought it as a present for my son to care for his leather sofas and he is extremely happy with the results . I would also like to congratulate you on the packaging of the product as it felt that you cared about it and the customer with the personal note ( and the sweet pea seeds for the bees ) . I hope that your company gets the recognition and customers for your service and quality of your products

Great product

This is a great product and I have been recommending it to all my customers to use. The service and attention to details with the personalised note is a fabulous idea.

Mark Bishop (Wadebridge, GB)
Excellent in all. respects

Really high quality product purchased to revive a leather chair bleached by the sun.
Seems expensive but is worth it and the level of service is above and beyond - attention to detail is superb.
A great company to deal with a small range of excellent products.

Leather balsom and Pure Gold

The boots were coated with Gilboys leather balsam, the table waxed with Gilboys Pure Gold. Happy with both results.
