Anyone try Turtle Wax Leather Conditioner?

My Recaros are drying out bad and I was wondering if anyone has used this compared to McGuires Rich Leather

You don't need any conditioner for your leather. Keep it clean is all.

Mix Woolite and Water 10:1 and scrub it down with a stiff bristle brush. That's all you need to do.

(but I have use the Meg's Rich Leather and it's not bad)

The recaro leather is starting to crack because I don't have tint so I need to keep it conditioned. The recaro leather isn't like the regular pleather that comes with cars these days.

If its already cracking there is nothing much you can do.

BTW, modern automotive leathers are plastic coated so no conditioning is necessary. Just keep it clean. The only way it would crack is if the plastic coating were compromised in some way ie; from excessive dirt buildup, abrasion, sun damage, etc. this plastic coating prevents any dressings or conditioners from contacting the actual leather so it just sort of sits on the surface that contributes to further, accelerated soiling.
