The Benefits of Waterproofing and Conditioning Gels

An excellent cleaning product for suede and synthetics, this all-in-one Collonil gel can help buff the life back into your shoes and protect them from further wear.

  • Waterproofing: Guard your bags and shoes against moisture damage suffered through wet weather, the outback or at the beach.
  • Bring Back the Colour: Are your bags and shoes looking a little faded? A conditioning gel can help remove dust and grime. Cleanse away the residue and apply a moisture-guarding, UV protectant to help reduce the risk of fading in the sun.
  • Texture: Leathers feeling a little tough? Bring back the soft, supple feeling of this material with a gel that can help smooth out those tough edges.

This waterproofing and conditioning gel cream for smooth leather, suede and synthetics repels dirt and moisture while maintaining the material’s soft supple texture. It also protects and enhances its colour.

Best Tips for Usage

Apply the gel with a polishing cloth, spreading evenly. Allow to dry, then polish the smooth surface with a soft polishing cloth or roughen up suede with a brush.

  1. Cleaning

Regular cleaning prevents the build-up of dust, dirt, mildew and bacteria. Use your clean fingertip to gently rub out the scratch as the natural oils from your skin will remove most small scratches. To remove dirt, grime or surface residue, use a soft damp cloth. Gently rub for removal. For a deeper clean, use a cleaner to help preserve the natural lubricating oils instead of stripping them. Cleaning is an irreversible process and therefore, thorough consideration should be made before any such attempt. Do not use coloured rags that are not dye-colourfast as the dye may come off onto your leather. 

  1. Maintaining

Care and Repair Over Time

When regularly exposed to weather, UV, dust, dirt and grime, leather can deteriorate over time. Our range of cleaners polish away visible signs of damage and extend the life of your favourite pieces. With most natural pieces ageing, breaking in and looking their best, with our range you’ll have all the products you need to maintain your favourite shoes, bags, and belts across the years.

Weather exposure – like rain, snow and sun rays – can be especially tough on most outerwear, so protecting your day-to-day wardrobe from outside exposure is always a good idea. That’s where cream-based cleaners come in. These are specialised in their formula and consistency to pair best with smooth materials. Your shoes, wallets and belts don’t have to go without a shield from the sun anymore.

  1.  Storage

Leather is a natural material and should be stored in a breathable, non-plastic or non-porous container, to prevent the growth of mildew and bacteria. If you have to store it in a garment bag, make sure to keep it open for ventilation. 

Avoid at all cost: 

  • Harsh detergents, abrasive cleaners or solvents as they may contain alcohol, turpentine and mineral spirits which can pull the colour off leather.
  • Prolonged and direct exposure of leather to hot and humid weather.
  • Putting too much mink oil or animal fats may darken the leather. Animal fat may also turn rancid, causing the leather and stitching to rot.
  • Place leather near open fireplaces or room heaters. If need to dry wet or damp leather, let it air-dry naturally.
  • Waxes or silicone formulas as it will impair the leather's ability to "breathe".
  • Sharp objects that may damage leather such as shoe buckles, scissors.
