Leather contains moisturising and lubricating oils that are gradually lost. Instead of flexing and stretching, the fibres become tight and stiff, and will eventually weaken and break, causing cracks. Our specially formulated oils and balsam will revitalise the fibres in the leather so that they can move freely again. If tack is not going to be used for some time, it should also be carefully stored to preserve its condition
Finished leather is composed of approximately 10% fats and oils and around 14% water, which both provide lubrication for the collagen fibres, the balance being protein. Regular care and cleaning maintains this balance and its resilient properties.
