Will at ASW ships internationally for $27 flat. You can always buy more to justify the shipping cost.

The Hanger Project also has it, and ships at least as far as Canada.

Does anyone know where to buy larger quantities?

These 75ml bottles seem dainty once you decide you want to put it on a jacket or something (or god forbid, renovateur your leather sofa).

If the statement on the Hanger Project that they use it in the hermes factory is true (I've not seen it repeated anywhere else and you would think hermes would sell it if they used it), then there must be some bulk sources out there somewhere.

The Saphir Leather Lotion is what I use for larger items, and these come in a slightly larger container.

Picked up some of this stuff. The first time I used it I was that impressed. As a result, I tried a different method that worked much better. Here are my suggestions:

  1. Brush your shoes with a horsehair brush
  2. Apply a dime amount of Saphir Renovateur onto a small cotton cloth (i.e. t-shirt) or cotton flannel polishing cloth
  3. Start forward to back applying in small stokes (wax on/wax off)
  4. Start on the next shoe and allow the creme to dry (3-5 minutes suggested on the can)
  5. Use a horsehair brush and apply stroked left to right
  6. Use a polishing cloth
  7. Apply wax (if needed)
  8. Use small drops of water to the cap of the shoe and polishing for 90 secs with polishing cloth (if you want to achieve shiney look)

I'd probably use the Reno on your finger instead of a cloth. That way you don't really waste as much.

We just recently added Saphir shoe care products to our arsenal, check it out at http://www.paulevansny.com/collections/shoe-care. Let us know if there's any Saphir products you want but don't see up there, we can work on adding them.

Never heard that. Rather interesting.

Really?  Do you have a complete ingredient list?

 

Does it, like their polish, contain turpentine?

 

Mink oil?

 

You do know such things are not good for you, right?


Turpentine:

Mink oil:

Anything else?

Cheers,

Unless you're wearing gloves you're getting residual
reno from the cloth leeching into your skin regardless.
Do you suggest using gloves to apply it then?

Having seen what it can do to the finish on some leathers, I now use gloves when handling it...

^Better safe than sorry.  Using a rubber or latex glove seems like a good idea since you won't lose product to the cloth, yet you won't grow a second head through contamination.
