Calibrated for nubuck, suede and aniline leathers
Soft, beautiful, and luxurious, the leathers are referred to as 'unfinished'. That's because they typically have no or minimal protective coatings or 'finish' on the surface. This can make them particularly vulnerable to indelible marks. When spills happen, fast and correct cleaning can greatly reduce the chance of ugly stains. Minimise oil stains from skin and hair with regular cleaning and conditioning. Once stains have 'set-in' they are usually permanent, although, with regular care, marks can soften and become less eye-catching.
Contains a powerful antibacterial that is proven to kill:
- Escherichia coli (E coli)
- Proteus vulgaris
- Pseudomonas aeruginosa
- Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA or Golden Staph)
Light and regular care is best
