Sno-Seal Original Beeswax Waterproofing protects leather from rain, sun, snow, and salt.
The beeswax formula dries to a solid wax that "stays put" in the surface of the leather so it lasts longer. Competitors contain grease, oil and animal products which are able to migrate through the leather till they clog all the pores.
These waterproofing products fill the natural spaces that are supposed to absorb perspiration and insulate. In addition, animal fats weaken and rot leather. Sno-Seal will help you feel more comfortable in Gore-Tex® fabric lined boots because it allows the Gore-Tex®-absorbed perspiration to escape out of the leather. And not only will Sno-Seal keep you warm and dry, it'll also help you from getting tired.
A typical leather boot can soak up to a pound of water. That means you lift an additional 1kg to walk 1600m. Sno-Seal keeps the whole boot dry, warm and light.
For best results; preheat clean and dry boots or shoes (use heat lamp, sunny window, or hair dryer). Do not heat beyond comfortable handling temperature of 120°F. Rub SNO-SEAL into leather liberally. The warm leather will melt the SNO-SEAL and draw it deep into the pores and fibers.
Apply as much SNO-SEAL as the leather will absorb. Remove excess wax with a rag and buff with a brush for shine. Color and high gloss can be maintained on dress shoes by applying regular shoe polish over SNO-SEAL.
SNO-SEAL Beeswax waterproofing lubricates leather and protects against drying and deterioration for longer than greases, oils and animal fats. SNO-SEAL is a natural wax and, unlike other products, will never weaken, decay, or break down the leather or stitching and seams.
CAUTION: will somewhat darken all leather. Not recommended for suede leather. If used on suede it will darken and flatten the nap, changing the appearance. (It will water proof and preserve the leather).
WARNING: Keep out of reach of children.
