Hopefully someone else can answer. I don’t have a lighter hide right now. It doesn’t darken black :p

@Al 916 Ive never used sapphir. Read good things though.
The Henry Ford method of color selection...;) I also have mostly black, with one exception. Online pics show that Blackrock darkens natural-colored hides one shade, to beautiful russet color. Handymike is onto something, as usual. Looks like very good stuff.

The best thing about is that it does soften the hides. It also brought some luster to my CXL (Aero). It feels a tad sticky when applied but don’t worry, it doesn’t last.

@Marc mndt mentioned Saphir. (single P, sorry my bad spelling)

It is (my observation so happy to be otherwise advised) a leather cream made in France.

Reading the ingredients
Beeswax and Almond Oil

I used it following Marc's description of his treatment of a vintage after Obs Heavy. As you say for Blackrock this also brings out a gentle luster and a subtle pleasant smell

What are the main ingredients of Blackrock?

I would give it a go but cannot buy it in England (nearest is Spain with heavy shipping)
