The following can also be other substitutes:

  • Beeswax-solid: Used for protection of leather. It creates a barrier for environmental influences
  • Coconut butter-semi solid: It conditions the leather surface.
  • Sweet Almond oil-liquid: Softens the leather internally and replaces the natural oils lost through dying
  • Castor oil-liquid: This is heavier oil that provides the 'shine'. This could be replaced with mineral oil if necessary.
  • What household things you might use actually tend to dry the leather too much, i.e. should I use an ammonia spray to clean dirt? Jan 11, 2017 at 14:43

Try Nikwax, rubbed in thinly using a cloth and left in a warm place.
