Good quality leather could last a lifetime if you take good care of it. I love my leather jacket. I paid quite a bit of money for it and always knew I have to take special care for this jacket in order to last me longer.
I have this jacket for a couple of years and so far I have not used any cleaners or conditioners on it, however I take it to dry cleaners a few times per year. I hate that every time after dry cleaning the leather of my usually super soft jacket become dry and stiff. It takes a couple of wears until the leather soften again.
Another problem I have with this jacket is that the foundation from my chin always transfer into the collar on the jacket and it looks dirty and nasty. I used to clean it with wet wipes, but I tried 3 amazing products by Leather Nova that do wonders at cleaning and conditioning leather in no time.
Leather Cleaner by Leather Nova is a new premium cleaner that deeply penetrates the leather pores to remove dirt, grime and oil. It is a safe formula that can be used on all types of leather, vinyl and plastic surfaces. Unlike other leather cleaners, it does not contain any harsh detergents or toxic ingredients that dry out the leather and actually accelerate its aging process. Its pH balanced formula maintains the natural sheen of leather surfaces and prevents discoloration without stripping essential oils that are necessary to prolong its luster and softness. Do NOT use on Suede or Nubuck. This cleaner can be used for all types of leather, including furniture, seats, shoes, luggage, belts, saddlebags, pursues, etc.
Leather Cleaner by Leather Nova comes with a microfiber towel. It is so easy and fast to use. I just sprayed all over the jacket and especially on my collar (where all the foundation stains are). Then I wiped with the provided towel and miracle – the foundation was gone and my collar is looking so clean 🙂 The whole jacket brightened up instantly. I had a couple of white marks on my sleeves as well #makeup which were all gone. The spray bottle makes this product so much enjoyable. It is so easy to just spray on jackets, bags, shoes, furniture and then wipe away. Dries quickly and does not leave messy or soapy residue. If you have anything leather I highly recommend this Leather Cleaner. It is made in USA and is 100% non-toxic.

After cleaning leather with Leather Cleaner, the pores of the leather surfaces will be prepared to be treated with Leather Nova high grade polymer based Leather Conditioner which provides safe and durable protection for all leather and vinyl surfaces. Monthly use maintains its natural suppleness and restores a rich leather fragrance. It leaves a non-greasy finish unlike other leather conditioners. Please note that the use of the conditioner may darken some leather items (especially lighter colored ones). Always test on a small concealed area first. Do NOT use on Suede or Nubuck.
Leather Conditioner by Leather Nova comes with a foam applicator pad. It is very easy and not messy to use. It looks like colorless tick oil that has to be massaged onto the leather surface in a circular motion. My jacket has a matte black leather finish and this conditioner does not leave oily or greasy residue, which is awesome. It also softened the dry patches on my jacket and it gave better overall look on the jacket which I really like. I love this product and I am amazed by the way it works. It is made in USA and is 100% non-toxic.

Just like Leather Nova Cleaner and Leather Nova Conditioner, the Leather Nova Conditioner & Cleaner comes with a free applicator pad. It is very easy to apply and it dries fast. I used it on a pair of leather boots and on my son`s school shoes and it made them less stiff and looking shiny new and beautiful.
