All leathers have a protection layer. It is brought by a fixative or by a waterproofing. This layer protects your objects from leather stains, frictions, temperature, humidity… The leather protection has the mission to protect the aspect, the colour of your leather. If the protection is good and sufficient, the stains won’t go through this barrier, making the leather cleaning much easier.
It is difficult to talk about a frequency of leather care because it first depends of the type of objects (leather couch, leather car seat, ancient object, bag, shoes…), its use and its exposure to sun, light or heat. Generally, the more aggressions it gets, the more leather protection must be done regularly.
To give you an idea, we recommend you to care for leather every three months in case it is suffering from aggressions (car seats, shoes, bags…). You can realize the leather protection of your couches every six months. Generally, aniline leathers are more fragile than leathers, and it is better to proceed in a leather protection more regularly.
