The wax provides waterproofing, as it dries. The oil goes deeper into the leather, and helps to maintain the leather’s suppleness.
Altberg Leder Gris is design to lengthen the lifespan of leather boots. Leder-Gris is a mixture of 70% wax and 30% oil. The wax provides waterproofing, as it dries – it remains on or just below the surface. The oil goes deeper into the leather, and helps to maintain the leather’s suppleness by replacing leather oils lost during the drying out process. If leather oils are not replaced, then boots will be more likely to show signs of flex cracking earlier.
- Medium oil content: restorative levels of leather oils are average
- High wax content: waxes are a mixture of synthetic bees waxes – content is above average
- Regular use: Leder-Gris Original can be used regularly – it will not over-soften , or damage leather if used excessively.
If you require a high shine, use Leder-Glӧs
Not tested on animals
Keep out of reach of children – if swallowed, seek medical advice

INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE OF LEDER-GRIS
Altberg Leder Gris
Brush in Leder-Gris when the boots are almost dry
Use the brush to work, and drive the wax oil into the leather
Always treat with Leder-Gris before storage
If leather shows signs of hardening, or after use in extreme wet conditions, use Leder-Gris Xtreme as a ‘one-off’ treatment
Altberg only recommends Leder-Gris
All leather will eventually show signs of cracking where the boot flexes. Treatment with Leder-Gris will slow down the rate at which this cracking will occur.
Drying boots too quickly will harden the leather and accelerate flex cracking - rapid drying may also shrink the boot and alter the fitting.
Always let boots dry naturally in a cool place.
DRYING LEATHER WHEN WET
Never dry quickly
Never dry near heat
Never dry, or leave in sunlight
Never force dry in any way
Drying boots too quickly can shrink them - if you're in a very hot climate, cover the boots with a damp cloth to slow down the rate of moisture evaporation
Use Leder-Gris Original (green label) regularly
