Bear Cream - Leather Dubbin
Wilma's Bear Cream is a leather protection grease made using the finest natural ingredients including birch, pine tar, oil, spruce resin and grease. It's called Bear Cream because it was originally made from bear grease - but not any more thankfully!
A woodsman working all day in the forest in deep snow had to have waterproof boots. Before the days of synthetic and rubber boots, leather shoes had to be treated to keep them waterproof.
Wilmas "Kängskosmorning" or Boot Grease penetrates deep into the leather, makes it soft, strong and very water repelling. It will make lighter leather darker after repeated use, and brings a scent of forest campfires to your boots.
Use on footwear, as well as leather luggage, rucksacks, bags and sheaths for knives and axes.
