Leatherique Products Have Been Tested by Outside Sources
Tests have been performed on our products by outside sources. They have determined that Rejuvenator Oil contains more beneficial ingredients than any competing formula, or any other leather treatment product on the market! In addition, our Rejuvenator Oil and Prestine Clean contain no Silicone, which dries leather, and no wax that merely sits on the surface and does nothing. We also advise against saddle soap, as it has been known to remove the dye from the leather. If your dye is worn away, call us or see Restoring and Dyeing about our simple to use Leatherique Leather Dye. The process, as outlined in our instructions, can bring remarkable results. Our dye is the premier product of its type. It has continued to keep pace with advances in co-polymer technology and uses only the finest, first-quality pigments. We recommend a preventative maintenance “face lift” three to four times a year with Rejuvenator Oil. Optimum times to make applications are at the seasonal changes and after hard use to prevent deterioration and shrinkage. Use Prestine Clean as a maintenance cleaner and conditioner in one easy step, each time the leather is stressed by weather or perspiration. Prestine Clean and Rejuvenator Oil may be applied with your hands as heat helps it penetrate the surface of the leather. They are both safe, natural and non-toxic. Natural oils were used to treat leather and keep it flexible since the earliest of cave man days. These natural oils included those excreted by the people who wore the skins for warmth and by the animal fats from the foods they ate, (recall they had not invented napkins or table manners). As “modern” man began using more items derived from petroleum and their by-products, they rationalized that the chemical oils would work to provide the lacquer painted dyed surface the appearance of being softer and more leather-like. It may have provided the lacquer finish with the illusion of flexibility, but it actually was harmful for the leather fibers. These oils are not at all necessary in the preservation of leather fibers, and actually help induce the break down, separation of fibers, and rot of leather and stitching. Remember that we coat our motor parts with petroleum oils so they do not stick together. That is totally contrary to what we wish to accomplish with the minuscule fibers that comprise our saddle and tack leather. A good ladies face cream actually shares many ingredients with our Rejuvenator Oil, including collagen. Face creams work on a process that allows nutrients to seep down into the layers of the skin, helps them hydrate (retain moisture), plumps the new skin cells and restores elasticity. The other ingredients such as oils, mineral oils and lanolin in the face creams actually do nothing but soften the dead surface skin cells so they may float away, exposing the vibrant new skin cells underneath. After shaving, men’s complexions have that “soft as a baby’s bottom” feel? It is purely commercialism on the part of razor manufacturers to allude that the razor was the cause for this effect. Actually, every day, men remove dead skin cells while shaving thus revealing the fresh new skin underneath. To the point, the leather in our saddles and tack no longer has the regenerative powers that nature provided to maintain them. Leatherique Rejuvenator Oil does simply that. It provides the leather fibers with the same natural ingredients nature intended to help keep them flexible and bound together.
