Why choose Obenauf's?


• Obenauf’s Leather Oil and Heavy Duty LP are true natural preservatives. No harmful softeners nor sealers that damage leather.

• Our Beeswax/Propolis Suspension Formula provides a time release lubrication of natural oils over an extended period of time.

• Propolis is an anti-bacterial tree resin, collected by honeybees to waterproof and disinfect their hives. It provides a natural barrier against chemicals (salt & body acids), mold, mildew and bacteria.

• Combined with Beeswax, Propolis will repel water better and longer than other water repellants.

• Obenauf’s continually receives highest ratings in extensive field tests by outdoorsmen and outfitters.
