"Our recipe is no secret, we’re proud of it.
Every batch of Smith’s Leather balm is handmade in Maine from 3 all-natural ingredients.
We start with 100% organic cocoa butter.
Organic cocoa butter is not commonly used in leather treatment due to it’s high cost.
It has become one of the most highly sought after ingredients in natural cosmetic supplies and skin conditioners.
Cocoa butter is rich in vitamin E and contains natural antioxidants that help fight premature aging and deterioration.
Next, we add 100% organic beeswax.
Organic beeswax is safer and more effective than other barrier creams like petroleum jelly which contain harmful chemicals that can damage stitching.
It acts as a natural waterproofer, sealing the leather and protecting it from harsh elements.
In addition, beeswax functions as a moisturizer, softening stiff, rigid leather.
Finally, we introduce 100% pure sweet almond oil.
Pure sweet almond oil is rich in vitamins A, E and B. It’s a preferred ingredient in natural health and beauty products.
It’s hypoallergenic and safer than less expensive alternatives. It has many wonderful health benefits and works to improve the overall look and feel of leather goods.
No animal fats, synthetic compounds, preservatives or petroleum based products.
Just the safest, highest quality natural ingredients.
"Smith’s Leather Balm restores, protects and preserves all smooth leather goods.
Apply to boots, shoes, handbags, briefcases, belts, saddles, gloves, motorcycle seats, and more.
Start by making sure your leather goods are clean and dry.
Next, test a small amount of Smith’s Leather Balm on a hidden patch of leather to preview the results.
Start with a small amount- a little goes a long way.
We believe that leather conditioners are best applied by hand and massaged into the leather but a rag will work also.
Leather is porous and will begin absorbing the natural oils in Smith’s Leather Balm immediately.
This means that lighter shades of leather may naturally darken some.
Most leather goods will not darken beyond their original shade and return to a lighter shade in time.
Minimize darkening by making sure you start with a very small amount. A little really does go a long way.
