Just got my custom seats picked up this evening. I had always used Leather Honey for all of my cowskin leather in the past and love it. But I had a strip of unused gator skin to try out a test run and it darkened too much. I also tried some saddle soap I had here and I cant tell the difference in color but I wonder if it actually adds any protection. I would like to hear from people that have tried to care of natural exotic leathers in the past without changing the color tone, thanks.
