    Best leather product to maintain matte OEM finish?

    What does everyone recommend for a leather cleaner and conditioner to maintain the OEM matte look/feel on leather? It's for a 2019 Jeep Renegade Trailhawk. I don't want to add any shine.

    Thanks!

    Griot's 3 in 1 Leather, cleans, conditions and protects. And it smells nice.

    Re: Best leather product to maintain matte OEM finish?

    I just recently started using McKee’s 37 70/30 leather shampoo. I find it removes dirt and body oils and leaves behind a nice finish. I will attempt to attach a picture of an armrest with the left side being cleaned with m37 and right side left untouched. IMO stay away from conditioning to avoid shine.

    Sonax Leather Foam Cleaner and Conditioner. Especially good if you have perforated leather. I've also had good results with Chemical Guys Leather Cleaner.

    I like cleaning with Optimum Power Clean diluted appropriately then using Ultima Interior Guard Plus.

    Ultima interior shampoo gel is nice also for a cleaner.

    Re: Best leather product to maintain matte OEM finish?

    What kind of leather is it? If it's pigmented, I recommend picking any quality cleaner then following up with Geyon leather shield (it's a SIO2 coating for leather). Geyon has a leather cleaner they recommend you prep with and that's what I used with good luck.

    Any protectant you place you want to protect the Clear Coat dye from abrasion and chemicals (just like the paint on the car) by providing a barrier that reduces friction. I've liked it thus far

    Re: Best leather product to maintain matte OEM finish?

    I just read this one and am searching for advice on what I can use to make the black seats and steering wheel of my 2019 BMW 440 more matte. They seem to have gotten a bit of shine, which I don't like. Can someone please advise me on what might be good, and not harsh, on my leather to get it near-new matte again?

    Clean with CarPro Inside, wipe down with distilled water, and then try Gyeon Leathershield. Make sure you give the Leathershield a nice buffing afterwards to maintain the matte look.
