Remember that leather was a living membrane at one time. The tanning process prevents decomposition by infusing preservative chemicals into the oil glands, and then fatliquoring the hide to replace natural oils that were lost. While fatliquoring keeps the leather soft for quite some time, it is not permanent. To keep that condition, leather has to be nourished regularly with a quality conditioner.
Lexol Leather Conditioner preserves the strength, beauty and flexibility of old and new leather. It also brings new life and resiliency to old or neglected leather that has become cracked or hardened. Lexol Leather Conditioner is an emulsion much like those used in leather tanning. Its oils have been modified for even distribution and penetration without leaving a greasy or tacky surface.
