This creamy, Warm Spice leather conditioner is made in small batches from organic ingredients and the beeswax is produced from the bees of Lil' Bit's fellow beekeeper - Ben's Bees. These bees are loved and treated like members of the family, a very, very BIG family.
A bit of info for you regarding Exotic Leathers (Croc, Ostrich, etc):
- Clean your leather first, you should do this at least 2 or 3 times a year. Extra fine beeswax, like this one, is the safest and most effective way to care for exotic leathers.
- Don’t apply any conditioning product before cleaning it and don’t use any alcohol-based cleaners, these will dry out the skin - just wipe it down with a clean, damp cloth.
- Don’t keep croc products near sources of heat such as radiators or heaters. Don’t let croc products come into contact with water for extended periods. Don’t store in sealed plastic bags, keep in a cloth bag to allow the leather to “breath”.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Beeswax can harden AND melt easily. You may find that your wax can be hard in cooler weather - simply rub a cloth into it and the friction will start to melt the wax, or sit the tub in warm water for a few minutes.
As the product also contains a lot of olive oil, Lil' Bit can't make it too soft as the melting point of oil is low - in summer you would end up with soup!

100% Australian, Certified Organic Olive Oil - We all know olive oil is good for us, but it also has no impact on the environment, as it is 100% biodegradable. Lil' Bit only use Certified Organic Australian olive oil. Their oil comes from 'Cockatoo Grove'. They have recently focused on converting their entire olive grove to Organic farming practices. Cockatoo Grove’s Organic extra virgin olive oil is grown and processed without the use of synthetic chemicals, fertilisers or genetically modified organisms. Cockatoo Grove organic is certified through AUS-QUAL.
100% Natural Beeswax - made by the happiest of bees. Lil' Bit don’t have enough beehives themselves to meet demand, so they source it from their friend and mentor Ben of Ben's Bees. Synthetic beeswax is made from a mixture of Esters that can irritate skin and is toxic to marine life. And just for interest - Did you know that each worker bee produces 4-7 wax scales per day from their abdomen. The scales are only 3.0mm x 0.1mm and there are over 1,100 scales in every gram of wax!
