Developed by hand in a home kitchen in Portland, Oregon, as an alternative to paraffin based waterproofing products, Otter Wax products contain ethically harvested all-natural ingredients. Otter Wax Leather Salve is made using a proprietary blend of natural waxes and oils with moisturising Shea Butter and Flaxseed Oil to restore suppleness and shine to leather while adding a layer of water-resistant protection. Apply Leather Salve to clean, dry leather and let sit for 5-10 minutes, allowing the leather to absorb the oils and nutrients. Using a cloth or horsehair brush, buff the wax layer to a shine. This step creates a waterproof seal on the leather, helping it to retain all of the nutrients it has absorbed. Otter Wax Leather Salve is a non-toxic formula suitable for use on leather shoes, hats, jackets, bags, furniture, auto interiors and more. For cleaning leather, we recommend Otter Wax Saddle Soap.
