Coral Red Leather Protection

Spend a little while searching around forums to see what the products were and I'm leaning towards ordering me a bottle of Zaino Z-10 to protect my leather. Thoughts? I'm really looking for a matte finish. Don't like the shiny look that some protectors have.

Also heard good things about leatherique as well.

Any suggestions are appreciated!

Is there a shiny finish to it or does it keep the matte look?

I think it depends on how much you use. I never had it come out shiny honestly and kept its matte look.

I usually apply it by hand after cleaning it then let it bake in the sun :]

You could also consider a transparent coating for your leather.

remember to condition your leather, its skin, has pores, dries out, etc... moisturizing it will keep it in good shape!

There is nothing to condition, no pores in our leather, etc. Our leather is sealed/clear coated so no conditioner will anything beside degrade the top coat. It just needs to wiped down with a mild soap and water.

Here is a good read. I just keep my leater clean along with the steering wheel (I do not use hand creams so as to keep the leather on the wheel a matt finish) All of my leathers in my cars look brand new and are never "treated"
