The Saphir color Cordovan cream is known to be loaded with pigments. That is useful in evening out the subtle color variations inherent in Shell Cordovan. But some may find the result not desirable.
You may use Saphir Renomat to remove the old wax/pigment residues. I have used Renomat on some Ravello's that were "mistreated" with dark wax pastes with good results.
Saphir cordovan cream in burgundy and dark brown will add color. Do not use it if you don't want color. Further, Saphir cordovan cream in neutral will slightly darken whiskey. Again, do not use it if that is not your desired effect. Personally I like the neutral for whiskey. The colored creams are mostly used on my non-Alden shells to give them more life (e.g., turning AE's "old" burgundy from a burgundy/brown mix to a more true burgundy). My Alden shells typically get reno or Alden paste wax - and sparingly at that.
