Helpful Notes:

Contrary to popular belief, it is important to understand that most leather care products are developed to preserve & maintain the coloured surface coatings, not the hide itself. Much like shampoos & polishes designed for the exterior protect the paintwork to protect the metal. Also, they are designed more for prevention, rather than cure!

Each generation of leather finishing would eventually develop issues. which required different remedies to that of it's predecessors. For example, the old "solvent/nitrocellulose-based" pigmented coatings (used by tanneries prior to 1980) also contained an oil, which eventually dried out, cracked & then gradually worked its way through the leather. These needed an slightly aggressive 'moisturising' product to be able to absorb into the heavier coatings, like Connolly Hide Care.

Modern water-based pigmented coatings, however do not contain an oil, but suffer from premature wear & staining. These require a 'barrier cream/lotion' with high "slip" content  to repel  these issues similar to the properties of the sealing top lacquer used by the tanneries. That we developed with our Neutral Conditioner & Protector.


Use an old leather care product with an aggressive emulsifier on a modern, delicate water-based finished leather & problems with colour loss, or stickiness  can occur!

Product Details




A must product for all modern, water-based surface pigmented upholstery leather. As well as our specially developed "dye-guard" additive offering resistance against future staining & wear, it also contains antibacterial protection, including the aroma of "traditional" leather!

A product, many years in development, was our answer to the constant aviation, automotive & domestic customer enquiries we received as to what can be done to continue the fight against various issues after we had resolved them.

Everything from premature wear, clothing dye transfer, killing bacterial contamination on airline seating to masking pet, damp & tobacco aromas in their vehicle!

We always use the lotion as the final "barrier" treatment on our Reconnolling projects. It also has the added benefit of reinstating the aroma making it more than just a "visual" impact on customer collection.

Our 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!
