Michael asked on 2021-12-04 15:48:08:

I have 1962 Jaguar with original Connolly leather seats, may I ask if the leather preserver can be safely used to protect these old leather without affecting, discolouring or removing the patina etc? Thanks in advance

COLOURLOCK UK replied on 2021-12-06 11:22:30 :

Hi, The elephant leather preserver is safe to use on the Connolly leather, but it will have shiny finish. If you would prefer to have Matt finish please use Leather Protector. Best Regards

Or rather use it as a conditiioner after degreasing and before dying the crocodile skin wallet?

COLOURLOCK UK replied on 2021-10-15 10:32:42 :

Hi Laura,Please clean, degrease, apply dye, apply elephant: using conditioner after degreasing and before dying will not work, as the dye will not stick to the leather due to oils in the condiotioner.Best Regards

Will the Elephant preserver darken the appearance of oil tanned full grain leather?

COLOURLOCK UK replied on 2021-09-09 17:05:39 :

Hi Teddy, Please can you do a water drop test in the hidden area to see how fast the leather absorbs the water? If it does absorbs fast, then we would recommend the Aniline Cream instead of the Elephant. Please send us few good quality photos to info@colourlock.comBest Regards

Mrs Amanda Nash asked on 2021-07-14 18:45:52:

Hi, a member of your staff today advised me to buy this for my natural veg tanned leather bag - I did say this leather is absorbent. Reading the questions here, have I been advised incorrectly as you seem to say don't use it on absorbent leather. If I cannot use this, please advise what conditioning product I can use that is safe for my bag. Thanks!

COLOURLOCK UK replied on 2021-07-15 15:41:11 :

Hi Amanda, It depends how absorbent the leather is. If it's really absorbent then you can use the Aniline Cream first and then apply Elephant Preserver.Best Regards.

My black leather motorbike jacket has been hanging in the sun for a couple of years. Its still soft but faded on one side, could you recommend something to restore the colour back please.

COLOURLOCK UK replied on 2020-06-19 10:36:25 :

Hi. Would this European Museum formula be suitable to restore and protect my late grandfather's 1950's leather jacket? I would like to work on it myself, and after a bit of online research this seems like the right product, but I'm not sure. As I want to do the best I can I have uploaded some pictures so you could tell me what you would recommend?https://imgur.com/a/fLQLqIX

COLOURLOCK UK replied on 2020-02-28 17:06:18 :

Will this product darken light coloured leather? I am looking for a leather fat that I can use on light red leather boots without darkening them.

COLOURLOCK UK replied on 2018-06-27 18:44:38 :

Frances asked on 2017-11-01 09:35:37:

We have a Stressless leather sofa - about 15 years old and I'm afraid we've just lived with it - haven't fed the leather or anything. It's developing very slight cracks very small and we want to start doing something now. Would the Elephant Leather Preserver be a good start to feed it? What about maybe hiding these very small, fine cracks? Thank you.

COLOURLOCK UK replied on 2017-11-01 11:21:30 :

Hi,To assist you in the best way possible, please can you email us some photos of your sofa to info@colourlock.com.We also need to know if your leather is porous or not.

Kevin asked on 2017-03-31 18:51:12:

I have recently purchase some elephant hide boots, would this product be safe to use on them, and will it Waterproof them.How often should i apply it.Also what other product from your company should use also.Thank you Kevin

COLOURLOCK UK replied on 2017-03-31 19:05:33 :

Hi Kevin, you will need to first find out if the leather is porous by rubbing a drop of water in a hidden area. If the water soaks in straight away then it is porous and we would recommend using aerosol products like the Aniline Protector Spray and the Waterproofing Spray as these won't stain very porous leather. If your leather is not too porous water stays on the surface you can use the Elephant Leather Preserver or Aniline Cream to protect your boots. Thanks!

Hi. I have just bought this to apply to my shoes. Do I apply this before or after a colour creme?ThanksStephen

COLOURLOCK UK replied on 2017-03-01 15:43:31 :

Hi Stephen, I would recommend applying this a day after the colour creme. As we are not aware of which colour you are applying and the contents of the product, I would also advise testing in a hidden area to ensure all is ok before full application. Hope this helps.

Lammot DuPont asked on 2016-12-24 03:58:37:

Hello, I have a variety of old cars, is this product suitable? What is Nappa leather? Is this suitable for ALL car leathers?

COLOURLOCK UK replied on 2016-12-24 10:54:25 :

Dear Mr. Du Pont,Nappa leather is another word for smooth leather. Majority of car interiors have pigmented leather i.e they all have a heavy layer of colour on the surface to make them durable and long lasting. This product is ideal for old leather that needs to be softened. However, because it is a wax based product it leaves a glossy finish. If you want to matt finish we recommend Colourlock Leather Protector. We have included a link to the product below. https://www.colourlock.com/leather-protector-150-ml.html . Please send us some photos so we can recommend suitable products to clean and maintain your car interior. Best Regards,Colourlock Team
