Default leather care and protection

Hello! Since 2012 that i am using mother´s products. i think they are fantastic. However , i have a question.
I use mother leather tech and Reflections Leather Care, the finish result is very nice, but my car is a convertible, so how can i reenforce the UV protection for the seats? applying some mothers protectant in the leather for quality finish? or is the Reflections Leather Care enough for UV?


Tanks!

If you want extra protection for the leather, add our Leather Cream (formerly known as LeatherTech Moisture Infusion Gel Cream) on top of the Reflections Leather Care.

You should re-apply Leather Cream often.

Protectant is really too slippery for contact surfaces.

Tank you! The protectant is a little bit slippery, but is harmless to the leather?

When you have a choice of an one step vs two step, the best approach is usually the multi-step product for specific tasks.

Maybe not, but I personally wouldn't apply protectant on leather, it would be safer to apply a leather protection product on vinyl/plastic/rubber and not the other way around. So for that, I recommend Mothers VLR. Once a product I had doubted when it was first launched, curiosity got the better of me, so I got one for myself. I nice, versatile product, works well on today's interiors where leather, vinyl, rubber and plastics abound.

Probably you are rigth I only had that question because the protectant is the only that has UV protection ( at least i think so...).

I just bought the foam leather cleaner and leather cream last week. In the spring I'll be cleaning a 2008 Explorer with the Eddie Baeur package, the leather is a light tan and no damage at all except for some dirt spots. Question is after foam cleaner and leather cream, what would be best to keep her protected after the leather cream?

Just edited this! I bet the VLR would be perfect for upkeep eh?? Over thinking can be a B&*^%$%%!

VLR in my experience is a very good in-between for the foam leather cleaner+leather cream, much like using a spray wax for in between full waxing sessions. Although I myself use the older (but still tried and tested) leather cleaner and leather conditioner for tougher jobs. VLR is a cleaner and conditioner in one, a very versatile product.

I would just use the leather cream on a regular basis as well as giving the leather a good cleaning every other application.

See the links below for Forrest's recommendation.

Cleaning can be much more infrequently - 4-6 months isn't uncommon, unless an "accident" happens.

Welcome to wax forum. We picked up our Mike Shannon bobble heads last night at the game. Living here makes it convenient for travel - I'm in the middle of everywhere.
Also this one as well.

Other seasons, about once every 8 weeks.
