Waterproof wax for use in tough wet conditions
Leder-Gris® Original is a mixture of 70% wax and 30% oil. It has been developed for everyday use in average UK conditions. The wax provides waterproofing, as it dries – it remains on or just below the surface.
The oil goes deeper into the leather, and helps to maintain the leather’s suppleness by replacing leather oils lost during the drying out process. If leather oils are not replaced, then boots will be more likely to show signs of flex cracking earlier.
Note - Use of Leder-Gris® may darken the colour of the leather.
Medium oil content: restorative levels of leather oils are average
Medium wax content: waxes are a mixture of synthetic bees waxes – content is average
Regular use: Leder-Gris® Original can be used regularly – it will not over-soften, or damage leather if used excessively.
All leather will eventually show signs of cracking where the boot flexes. Treatment with Leder-Gris® will slow down the rate at which this cracking will occur.
Drying boots too quickly will harden the leather and accelerate flex cracking - rapid drying may also shrink the boot and alter the fitting.
Always let boots dry naturally in a cool place.
