Connolly Hide Care (284ml) & Concentrated Cleaner (500ml)
The traditional product (formerly known as Connolly Hide Food) purchased fresh, direct from manufacturers.
A rich lanolin & beeswax cream ideally suited on older, or vintage "surface pigmented" leathers produced prior to 1990.
It seems to have been adopted as a "generic" leather preserver & has a following on sheepskin WWII flying jackets, saddlery, vintage luggage, antique leather book bindings, hand made shoes etc. but do your research!
The white spirit it uses as an emulsifier helps it absorb & soften the older, heavier, solvent/nitrocellulose-based pigmented coatings, but can be detrimental on modern water-based ones, particularly two-toned (antique) effects or leather upholstery refinished before!
The recipe has changed little over the last 60 years, but leather production has! Usual advise if in doubt is always test on small, unobtrusive area first & stop use if see any colour movement or surface remains sticky even after a few days.
The Concentrated Leather Cleaner is a mild shampoo made to the Connolly's original recipe. 1 part soap to 8-10 parts hot water means that this 500ml bottle will make up to 5 litres of solution!
