Connolly Hide Food Leather Conditioner

Over-indulge your leather!

Perhaps the most trusted, reputable name in the leather industry, Wimbledon-based Connolly Leather has gifted leather owners with a magic potion to prevent the aging and deterioration of leather. Connolly Hide Care Leather Conditioner restores leather’s essential moisturizers and protectants in a creamy emulsion of lanolin, white spirit, and natural oils restoring and maintaining the original beauty. Furthermore, Hide Care Leather Conditioner is properly pH balanced to offset the natural alkalinity of leather, and keep it healthy.

Since 1878 Connolly Leather has been at the forefront of the leather industry, supplying superior quality leather to some of the most sought after automotive companies. Jaguar, Ferrari, Bentley and Rolls Royce consider Connolly leather to be the only acceptable leather for their cars. Connolly Leather also graces the seats and interiors of many luxury liners, the British House of Commons and the House of Lords, and the Concorde, when it was still flying. To reach that pinnacle of excellence and maintain it, Connolly Leather had to develop a care regimen that would complement and keep healthy the regal leather for years. So, they developed concentrated Connolly Leather Cleaner and Connolly Hide Care Leather Conditioner, which will without a doubt, maintain, moisturize and protect your leather, thereby extending its life.

Neglected leather will shortly give away its status: Hardening, brittleness, cracking, dryness, fading… the list of traumas goes on. How to avoid this demise? A regular program of cleaning, and more importantly, conditioning will keep the surface as lush and satiny-soft as the day it was born.

Treat your leather as you would your own skin. A good, deep cleaning gentle cleanser like Connolly Leather Cleaner, followed by the best moisturizer to keep the fibers supple, flexible and strong is proper care. Connolly Hide Care provides all the nourishing ingredients required to keep the leather fibers pliable, soft and supple, as well as attractive to gaze upon. Hide Care Leather Conditioner is scientifically formulated to penetrate the porous leather and supply the necessary lubricants to keep it warm and inviting. A protective layer remains on the surface; an enduring “polish” that delivers a pleasing visual finish that begs to be touched.

Connolly Hide Care - Hide FoodFor best results begin a monthly routine of cleaning first with Connolly Leather Cleaner to remove excess dirt and grease. Follow with a nourishing treatment of Connolly’s Hide Care Leather Conditioner formerly called Connolly Hide Food, before the FDA caught wind of it being called food). Apply the Hide Care sparingly with a soft cloth, foam or terry applicator or with your bare hands. Luxury car owners report that massaging Connolly Hide Care into the leather with your hands produces the most satisfactory results. Hide Care needs to bask in the sun all day or absorb into the fibers all night to ensure complete permeation. Buff or wipe the entire surface to remove any excess product, then sit back and enjoy the distinguished luxury of your sensuous leather interior.

The Connolly Leather Care Kit comes with Connolly Leather Cleaner, Connolly Hide Care Leather Conditioner, an applicator pad and a microfiber detailing towel for finishing the job with a final buffing or wipe down.

  • Wipe of excess product with a clean dry terry towel or microfiber detailing towel.

The Very Best Leather Care I have ever used
I formally used this product on the leather seats of my British cars and then I could not find it in the market for several years. Autogeek has brought it back and I am happy to use it again. It has softened the leather seats on my 90 Mustang convertible after attempts to soften with other products - now feeling like leather instead of "paper"
ProsIt really works on both old and new leather

This item has not worked the way I would have liked. I do think it is far better than what one can buy at the auto parts store.

Reviewing in process
I hav a 1999 Jaguar XJ8 Vanden Plas. The leather is the best, you must feed good leather or you will shorten its life. This product comes highly recommended. I have applied and need time to evaluate. I will apply on a monthly basis before I make an intelligent evaluation. I will get back to you on this. Initially it is doing what it is advertised to do.

For leather, there is no second...
I've used Connolly on leather upholstery in my living room for years and wouldn't use anything else. Period.
Pros Hide Food produces a beautiful tone and feel to old, worn leather which lasts for months, despite lots of usage and the dryness of a long winter. Coverage is quite good, so that a jar will last quite a while, making the cost worth it.
Cons The surface will be a bit sticky for a day or two, but the results are the thing.

What a difference
I have used this hide food before and I am always pleased with the results. The 28 year old leather in my BMW looks and feels great and I think this stuff is primarily responsible.

ProsGreat conditioner
ConsWhite creams shows in holes and crevices at first.

Connolly Hide Food
Nothing comes close to this product when treating your interior leather. Have used this product for over 15 years with outstanding results when used in conjunction with saddle soap as primary cleaner prior to hide food application.

Excellent and Easy
Used this after I worked on my leather seats with Leatherique Leather Care this thing works like a charm. Car seats are very soft and Leather is excellent, it was in bad shape before there were cracks and neglected by the previous owner. Looks and feels almost new apart form the cracks being pronuunced a bit than before.

For more than just car leather
I didn't just use this on my car's leather - I also used it on a leather jacket. It works really well. It restored the leather to a soft and supply texture, and it leaves a muted gloss that can be buffed to a more matte finish. Virtually odorless. It can be a little difficult to work with, especially in colder weather, as it doesn't liquefy and sink in without a lot of rubbing in those conditions. I ended up switching to the Pinnacle leather conditioner because of this, but if you apply it in sixty degree or above weather you should be fine.

Great for leather
I use this on a 1988 Rolls-Royce Silver Spur and the leather today is as soft and beautiful as it was when the car was new! Proper leather care takes time and effort, but if you are willing to devote the time and effort and use Connolly leather cleaning and treatments you will have decades, not just years, of beautiful, soft leather! I always do this in the hot sun and leave the car closed up with the Connolly Leather Care on the leather for several hours before buffing it out. It literally soaks into the leather leaving it very soft and fragrant. The Connolly leather fragrance is like no other in the world and this product preserves it, even two decades later!

great stuff
my 12 year old lexus sc has never been garaged here in Florida, with hide food it is sttill soft and not cracked
January 19, 2008
Used this stuff for the first time on the hides in my Lexus. I really like the feel it gave the leather. I even used it on the dash, which I suspect is manmade and it looks brand new. The only downside was the outside temperatures (30's) made it difficult to apply. I am anxious for the really warm, sunny day to apply it again.
