I don't know about the feel, but they have a similar grain.
@MoosicPa may be able to answer. I believe he has some Utah.
Don't fret...too much.
Renovateur is to be used very sparingly. It does a good job at helping to remove residual filth and polish that may be built up on the surface of the shoes.
I would use it maybe only 1 or 2 times per year on shoes and boots that absolutely "Need" it.
Renovateur is a deep conditioner. Its stripping and cleaning properties are perhaps more pronounced that its conditioning properties IMO.
Some of the instances where Reno has been overzealous are when used on crust leathers that have hand applied finishing.
You could use Renovatuer 99 times before it ever gave you an issue...but, its that 100th time that will get you.
Renomat will strip the shoes all the way down to their original unfinished state.
Renovatuer, although not nearly as strong, can and will strip shoes as well.
This is why so many recommend Renovatuer for the first application in a high shine. It will remove all the residual surface dirt and grime and layers of older wax polish...
And, it has the potential to remove some of the factory finishing as well.
Can Saphir Renovateur be used as a neutral shoe cream?
But, I assure you that is not its primary purpose.
Perhaps I could get you to stuff a bottle of that in my next incoming package from Sweden?
Good looking out on the Bick 4 by the way.
