About Leather Balm

The Leather Re-Colouring Balm restores the colour and characteristics of all absorbent leather items both old and new. There are 16 colours formulated for use on leather, from a dark to light shade.

It works great for restoring the colour back to any leather item which may have suffered from colour fading due to exposure to sunlight or direct heat, worn, minor damage and/or slight cracking. It works great on dried out leather too. The Leather Re-Colouring Balm works by soaking into the leather, keeping the surface soft, supple, and durable, and will not rub off onto your clothes.

Simply reinstates the colour with only one application! Additional applications can be applied in order to reach your desired colour. With use, the leather will fade again but this can be reduced by using the Leather Protection Cream. The Leather Re-Colouring Balm is generally re-applied once every three years.

Restored Cushions

These cushions have been restored with the Dark Brown Re-Colouring Balm and show the difference with one coat (middle cushion), two coats (right cushion) and the original (left cushion)

NOTE: For scuffs and scratches, the Re-Colouring Balm will only work if the scratch has gone to a lighter colour than the leather. This will allow the Balm to soak into the scuff or scratch, blending the damage in. If the scuff or scratch is darker than the surrounding area, you will need a Complete Leather Repair Kit. You can still use the Re-Colouring Balm in order to restore the colour to the rest of your item.

NOTE: For lighter patches, the Leather Re-Colouring Balm will only work if it is able to soak into your leather – to test this, put a tiny drop of water onto the damaged area and see if it soaks in. If the leather isn’t absorbent, you will need a Complete Leather Repair Kit

Leather Balm Instructions

These easy-to-follow instructions will show you how it's possible to completely restore leather using our Leather Balm. 

Step 1 - Cleaning the leather

Clean the leather first before applying the Balm. For best results, use our Leather Cleaner - This is because it deep cleans the leather to remove all dirt, but also opens up the pores of the leather so the Leather Balm will take to the leather in a better fashion.

Step 2 - Applying the Leather Balm

Rub the Leather Balm into the leather in a circular motion to ensure penetration. This is enough to completely restore the colour. Leave the Balm to soak into the leather for 10 minutes, then take a clean cloth and buff the surface of the leather. Make sure there is no excess Balm left on the leather.

Step 3 - Maintenance after apply Leather balm

After buffing, the leather becomes 100% colourfast. For thorough protection and longevity of your leather, we recommend applying the Leather Protection Cream; this will help to reduce future fading.

Upgrade to the Complete Restoration Kit

We have packaged all the products you'll need, along with applicator sponges in our Complete Leather Restoration Kit. Buying the kit saves over £20 compared to buying all products individually.

NOTE: Each colour as you can see is split into three shades. This is to indicate that each colour balm works on those different shades of the colour, i.e. from a light to dark shade. So, the more balm you apply, the darker the leather becomes. This is how you are able to achieve varying shades of a colour.

IMPORTANT: The colours shown here are dependent upon screen settings or monitor calibration, they are a guide only. The actual colour may vary.

Leather Balm FAQ

Q. Is the leather balm a leather restoration cream?

A. Yes, people often refer to the balm as a leather restoration cream; it has the consistency of a thick cream and when applied to leather it will restore the colour. 

Q. Can the Re-Colouring Balm be used on any type of leather?

A. Yes, however, the leather must be absorbent for it to work, or scratched to a lighter colour. You can test the leathers absorbency by dropping a small drop of water onto the surface of the leather and see if it soaks in or not. If it soaks in, then this is the ideal product for you. If the water does not absorb, we recommend using our Complete Leather Repair Kit.

The Re-Colouring Balm will work on non-absorbent leathers if the surface of the leather has been scuffed or scratched; showing a lighter colour beneath. Applying the Re-Colouring Balm will blend the damage in but will not repair it. For this, we recommend our Complete Leather Repair Kit.

Q. Will the Leather Balm come off onto my clothes?

A. No, the Balm is completely colour fast once dry and the leather has been buffed. You should buff the leather with a clean, dry cloth until there is no colour transfer showing on the cloth.

To add further protection, we recommend applying our Leather Protection Cream as this will help protect the leather and give further colour fastness. 

Q. I cannot see a colour which matches my item perfectly on the colour chart, what should I do?

A. It is not crucial that the colour matches the colour chart. Our Re-Colouring Balm is designed to cover multiple shades of any colour, and so will blend in as it is applied. The more Balm you apply the darker the colour will get.

The nature of most absorbent leathers is that there is not one specific colour to your item, therefore you do not require an exact match in colour.

Q. Do I need to clean my leather before applying the Re-Colouring Balm?

A. Yes, it is highly recommended to thoroughly clean your leather with our Leather Cleaner before applying the Re-Colouring Balm. Cleaning the leather first will remove any dirt and grime which may be blocking the pores of your leather; this will allow the Balm to soak in much easier bringing better results.

You can buy both the Re-Colouring Balm and Leather Cleaner in our Easy Leather Restoration Kit.

Q. I've applied the Balm and then Leather Protection Cream and the colour has come off, is this normal?

A. Yes, it is normal to see some colour transfer when applying our Leather Protection Cream after applying the Balm. You should wait 24 hours before applying the Protection Cream to limit this. It is also recommended to apply the Protection Cream lightly; this again will limit the colour transfer.

However, whilst you may see colour transfer onto the cloth, the leather will still look fully restored. The Protection Cream will only be removing excess Leather Balm on the leather's surface.

Q. Can the Balm be used to change the colour of leather, particularly from dark to light?

A. Unfortunately not. The Re-Colouring Balm is designed to restore the colour back to worn and faded leather.

If you would like to change the colour of your item, we recommend using our Leather Colourant Kit.

Q. Does the Leather Balm condition the leather?

A. Yes, as it soaks into the leather, the Balms natural properties will keep the leather soft and supple, which in turn will condition the leather to a certain degree. 

The main purpose of the Balm is to restore the colour though so, if you are looking to condition your leather, we recommend using our Leather Protection Cream, as this is one of its main purposes.

Q. Can I use the Leather Protection Cream with the Re-Colouring Balm?

A. Yes, we recommend applying our Leather Protection Cream after using the Balm. We recommend waiting 24 hours before applying the Leather Protection Cream.

Q. Can the Balm be used with filler when repairing cracks or rips?

A. No, for this you need our Leather Repair Kit.

The Balm can be used in conjunction with this kit to restore the colour to the other areas of leather though.

Q. Will the Leather Balm shine my leather?

A. If you buff with a cloth it may restore a slight shine. However, if you want your leather to shine, then you should use our Leather polish.
