We wanted a line of products that could be safely applied by hand.
Something without harmful chemicals or greasy additives.
So, we use organic cocoa butter as our base which melts on contact with skin and won’t leave hands feeling greasy or sticky.
As for application on leather, here are the instructions:
Smith’s Leather Balm restores, protects and preserves all smooth leather goods.
Start by making sure your leather goods are clean and dry.
Next, test a small amount of Smith’s Leather Balm on a hidden patch of leather to preview the results.
Start with a very small amount- a little goes a long way.
We believe that leather conditioners are best applied by hand and massaged into the leather but a rag or brush will work also.
Leather is porous and will begin absorbing the natural oils in Smith’s Leather Balm immediately.
This means that lighter shades of leather may naturally darken some.
Most leather goods will not darken beyond their original shade and return to a lighter shade in time.
Minimize darkening by making sure you start with a very small amount. A little really does go a long way.
Buff with a horse hair brush or rag if desired.
Reapply Smith’s Leather Balm as necessary to restore, protect and extend the life of your favorite leather goods.
