Skidmore's

I use Skidmore's leather waterproofing cream on all Absurd Design leather products to make sure that your collar or lead is ready for the outdoors. I use this particular product because it's nearly pure beeswax and means if your pup loves getting mucky or going in the sea then your collar will have extra protection from getting really really wet.

 

There are hundreds of leather conditioners available, the one I use is Skidmore’s Leather Waterproofing Cream. I use this one because it's nearly pure beeswax and means if your pup loves getting mucky or going in the sea then your collar will have extra protection from getting really really wet.  You can use any commercially-available weather proofing conditioner designed for vegetable-tanned leather for caring for your collar. Simple oils like olive oil also work well. Simply rub in a light coat evenly, then buff it with a clean dry rag. You can repeat these steps as many times as you like, but keep in mind that conditioning leather usually darkens it slightly (this is normal).

Skidmore's Leather Waterproofing Cream is used on leather to seal seams and leave a coat of beeswax sealer over the surface. Tip: Apply liberally with a cloth and then gently warm the item (I use a hairdryer) to melt the wax into the leather. Amazing stuff that really works!
