Effax Leather Balsam is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 140.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite product for tack and boots! I love this product! It gives life back to your leather. My saddle, bridle, and boots are supple again! Bonus: it gives you a little more grip in the saddle. Highly recommended!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from .....and motorcycle riders like it also!!! Hi, I ride a Sport Tour 1996 Triumph Trophy and use effax on my older Corbin leather seat and passenger back rest but especially all my leather riding gear, boots, and shoes,........ WHAT A DIFFERENCE!!!! I bought my expensive Vanson riding gear (Pants & Armored Jacket) around 2006 new and it was always really stiff and very uncomfortable. A few times I used car seat leather care with little results and then wondered into our huge Tack store here in Camden SC. Started reading labels and bingo, this was my research choice and what a blessing. It takes a LONG time to break in leather riding gear from new and I actually got discouraged and purchased other man made fabrics for more comfortable gear. My leather gear is now getting more flexible with effax and I too will be buying the larger size containers and increasing frequency to hopefully three to four time a year. Note: I reuse a kitchen rubber glove and work effax into all the tight stitched lips but try to avoid the actual stitching; oh, and now it gets used on the car seats too!! My tall Bates leather and Gortex boot in picture were purchased in 2006 and are still drinking each application!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MAGIC!!!! I bought this in California when the lady at the tack shop recommended it. Soooo glad we let her talk us into buying this! I bought my saddle used, but the lady had probably only ridden in it like 10 times. Everything was super stiff and it hasn't really changed with other oils. I recently started looking around trying to find something to soften it up with. The saddle is also super slippery, probably because of the newness. Well, I used this and conditioned the crap out of it, and I have a new saddle that I love! It smells very nice, exactly like beeswax/honey, and it applies very nicely. If you put a big glob on and rub it in, then set it out in the sun to dry for a bit, it comes out incredible! Then I started using it on everything; stirrup leathers, bridles, boots, everything! It works the same on whatever you put it on!! I will definitely be buying this again when I run out. Definitely get the bigger size... its totally worth it in the long run. I haven't seen the smaller size to compare, but the large will last 1-2 riders for months.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Leather loves it This stuff is fantastic. I use it weekly or so on my tack and what a difference it makes! I've been using it for a little under 5 months, and have noticed that not only does the leather look and feel wonderful right after applying it, it stays that way longer in between applications. My saddle, which I purchased used and needed some love, looks and feels like a completely different saddle (in a good way). The jar is easily going to last me at least a year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Effax Leder-Basalm is the best! This is a great conditioner for all leather. Not greasy, even on a calf or buffalo saddle. With a couple applications will take a dried, crusty halter back to being beautiful and supple... great to maintain leather turnout halters, bridles, your expensive saddle... It's an all around great product that last forever because you don't need very much!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from easy to use, nice conditioning treatment This balsam is soft and easy to apply all over my saddle. The leather looked smooth and restored from a bit of dust and dryness (normal use). I liked it. Smelled bit like the sweetness of pipe tobacco, actually kind of nice faint aroma in my tack shed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The only leather conditioner I’ll ever use I have been using this forever and it keeps my tack so soft and nice!
Date published: 2021-01-15
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Effax Leather Balsam I purchased this leather conditioner to use in the winter time. I keep it at the barn and because the tack room is cold most other conditioners become too solid to use without warming them up first. Effax stays soft and easy to apply. It does a great job of keeping leather pliable. I use a paper towel to apply it. Can't use a sponge because it's almost impossible to rinse it out without using soap.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything I needed at an affordable price! I bought this product for students to utilize after cleaning lesson tack. The high quality balm at an economical price point can’t be beat! Will definitely be getting again.
