Leather care with SAPHIR gloss wax
It is important to distinguish between shoe/leather cream and wax. The cream is there to penetrate deep into the leather and pores, to nourish it and keep it supple. Care with the cream prevents the formation of unsightly cracks in the material, for example. The wax, on the other hand, forms a protective layer on the leather so that the penetration of moisture is prevented with a reliable impregnation. In addition, a beautiful shine is formed on the material.

The correct application
After cleaning with the cream, apply the wax to the leather in small amounts with a brush or cotton cloth. Let it soak in for approx. 5 minutes and polish to a shine with a cotton cloth or horsehair brush.

Our recommendation for ideal leather care
Always proceed in the same order and test the compatibility of each care product on a non-visible or concealed area. For handbags, the underside or the inside of straps and fasteners are ideal. For shoes, the area around the heel or even the tongue or flap is a good place to test the compatibility.
First clean the product to be cared for. Remove dust and light dirt with a horsehair brush or a soft cotton cloth. Deep-seated dirt and stains that have not completely disappeared in the first step should be treated with a suitable cleaning agent.
If you have used a cleaning agent, let it dry on the leather and then start the second step of leather care. Now apply a leather cream sparingly in the appropriate shade. Massage the leather cream into the surface using light circular movements and without applying pressure.
- A darker shade will darken the leather.
- With a lighter shade, the colour tone is retained.
After a resting period of about 10 minutes, polish the leather with a horsehair brush.
In the third and last step, apply the wax sparingly and gently in the same application mode. This protects the leather surface against the effects of weather and other influences. You can achieve a beautiful high gloss by polishing the leather with the horsehair brush for a longer time and with quick movements. (Alternatively, use a cotton cloth)
We wish you much success in caring for smooth leather and continue to enjoy looking at and preserving your leather product.
