Does best:   Nourishing

Most used for:   Most smooth leather types, shoes
Combine with:   - Pommadier

We advise to use Saphir Lotion as a first step in the treatment of your smooth leather shoes, when you're not giving them a deep cleaning such as with Renomat. This lotion, including ingredients such as bees wax and ultra nourishing mink oil, cleans, nourishes and protects all of your leather products. Apply by using a cotton cloth and let dry until the Lotion looks dry and mat. Brush with a horsehair brush and a soft shine will appear on your shoes. Continue your treatment by using Saphir Pommadier, Pate de Luxe en Mirror Gloss.

The lotion is essentially a light-version of the Saphir Renovateur and gives a soft shine. Having this characteristics, it's next to treating shoes, perfect for nourishing leather bags, jackets, but also larger leather items such as furniture and car interior.

Lotion or Renovateur?
Don't know which to pick? We often explain the difference between the two by explaining how you would use them. Saphir Lotion is a great multipurpose cleaner and conditioner for everyday use. The Lotion is less rich in oils and waxes and therefore you can use it more often than Saphir Renovateur. Lotion is also better suited to treat larger surfaces of leather than Renovateur is. So besides shoes Lotion is also great for treating furniture, car interiors, leather bags and leather jackets. Renovateur on the other hand is richer in nourishing ingrediënts than Lotion. You want to use Renovateur once a week at a maximum to prevent oversaturating the leather with oils. Are you looking for the best conditioning for your shoes? Then pick Renovateur. If you are looking for a more practical multipurpose conditioner then pick Lotion.

How to use

Saphir's Lotion is the less thick variant of Saphir's Renovateur. Although this lotion is originally used for clean and shine shoes, it's also used for treating large leather surfaces like furniture. To treat your shoes with Lotion you need:

 Saphir Medaille d'Or Lotion
 Shine Brush
 Applicator cloth

1. Apply the shoe cream using either an applicator brush or applicator cloth. (As an alternative for the applicator cloth you can use an old t-shirt. As long its 100% cotton). Using small rotational motions, massage the cream into the leather. (TIP. Start with a small amount of cream polish. You don't need much)

2. Let the cream soak into the leather for 5 minutes

3. To remove excess cream give your shoes a quick brushing using the shine brush

4. Shine your shoes using the applicator cloth

We advise anyone to polish his/her shoes using the popular and multi functional products made by Saphir. Products such as Saphir Renovateur. Saphir Pommadier, and Saphir Pate de Luxe. All part of the luxurious Saphir Medaille d'Or line of products. All of the product from Saphir Medaille d'Or are of the highest of qualities and will keep your shoes in pristine condition.

Tip from our expert:

"Lotion is a great conditioner, cleaner and a way to give your shoes a really quick clean up if you are in a hurry. In contrast to Renovateur it does not open up the pores of the leather and therefore does not necessarily immediately need a follow up product to protect the leather."
