Our All Natural Leather Conditioner uses beeswax for increased water resistance. It’s created specifically for Red Wing oil-tanned leathers including Rough & Tough, Portage, Chrome, and Legacy. This conditioner may initially darken leather.
We recommend testing this product on a small, inconspicuous area of your footwear, as this conditioner may darken the leather and then lighten with wear

All NaturalSo, is not used an oil on my boots yet, as I purchased the all natural with the boots. With the beeswax added, I’d say there are a couple of pros and cons.
The pros: additional water resistance that comes with the nice seal procided by the wax. This should - in theory - help provide some additional protection and longevity as well.
The only real con is that the wax does what wax does. As it cools, it will solidify and create a thin matte layer. In heavy flex areas it will crack and flake. This you can really only see on close inspection. My solution was to apply, wear them for a bit, then take my brush back to them to remove the excess flaked wax. I plan to purchase some mink oil to use as well for the next clean/oil. My thoughts are to apply a base layer of oil then this product for a nice supple feel as well as the added protection.
