I was chatting over a paddock fence with a cowboy. We ended up talking about tallow and ways to use it. Turned out he was a professional saddler, creating original leather goods, blending leather care with fine craftsmanship and repair.

His experience helped to shape what we think is one of the best leather conditioners available – Good Bones Dubbin Wax.

Proven ingredients that work to condition, waterproof, and protect hardworking  leather: from saddlery, tack, and boots to belts, gloves, dress shoes, handbags, and more.

Each ingredient has been chosen to impart specific traits to the leather.

  • Tallow has a natural affinity for leather and absorbs easily, giving it a waxy, supple feel.
  • Wax protects the surface, helps to shed water, and adds a unique feel to the treated leather 
  • Cod liver oil penetrates easily, helping to bring all the ingredients deep into the leather while providing anti-oxidant properties.  
  • Glycerin is a well-known humectant and keeps leather from drying by absorbing moisture from the air. 
  • Lanolin is a traditional ingredient and has been used for centuries as a superb softener and water repellent.  



Pastured tallow, cod liver oil, beeswax, virgin lanolin, glycerin, citronella.


Simply put, you’ll find none finer.
