About Us

Leather Doctor® is an innovative breakthrough leather care product system based on science and logic, unprecedented and revolutionary for the leather cleaning and restoration industry.

Knowing that the pH neutral (iso-electric point or pI) of leather is within the pH range of 3-5, Leather Doctor® has developed a Leather-Safe™ product line in sync with the pH neutral of the leather range.

The Leather-Safe™ system developed by Leather Doctor® incorporates the pH value of their products into the leather revolutionary cleaning system equation. This ensures a pH-balanced result to the leather pH neutral of 3-5 without upsetting its original pH chemistry integrity. This leather safe system preempts the common complaints or disappointments that most pH sensitive leather often experiences. These include denaturing into tackiness, color streaks, dye bleeds; or dries with shrinkage or stiffness that leads to premature cracks.

For simplicity of usage the pH value of the cleaning and rejuvenating products are incorporated as the suffix name, thus Clean-3.8 simply denotes that this product has a pH value of 3.8 and is also within the leather-safe pH range. However, any pH value below or above the leather-safe range used has to be pH balanced to bring the leather back to its original pH neutral range during the end of the cleaning process.

Leather comprises mainly of amphoteric protein fibers with its other non-amphoteric leather constituents like the tanning agents that preserve it from reverting to rawhide, dyestuff that beautifies it and fatliquor that makes it supple with softness and strength.

Any alkaline solution including water will cause an ionic negative (-ve) shift to the protein fiber, thus its other ionic negative (-ve) leather constituents lose their ionic attraction and leaches out. Weakening of the tanning agents’ ionic attraction manifest as tackiness, and the dyestuff results in discoloration while the fatliquor experience shrinks and stiffens. With a Leather-Safe™ system these common side effects are prevented.

This breakthrough science and logical approach to leather care is attested from our help and support forum www.LeatherCleaningRestorationForum.com by both DIY and professional users since 2007. This is a resource that will provide users of the product line to solve problems more effectively and share common experiences with other users.

It is likely that a similar problem you presently encounter has already been solved from this helpful resource. However, the systematic approach to leather cleaning and restoration is first identifying the leather type and if you are uncertain about this, you may post photos with descriptions to our help and support forum and we will help to troubleshoot your problem.

Once positively identified we will match it up our leather problem solving matrix as reference for a holistic follow-through.

Thank you for your confidence in the Leather Doctor® system and look forward to be of assistance.

Leather Doctor® is also currently seeking an equally well-established visionary and enthusiastic company to collaborate with for potential worldwide marketing to serve you better.
