The Difference Between Saphir Medaille D’Or And Saphir Products

When you are looking for superior shoe and leather care products it is no surprise the name Saphir is mentioned frequently. The French company has a well deserved reputation for high quality and also offers a broad range of items that can meet almost any leather care need imaginable.
Considering the Saphir options may lead to the following question. What is the difference between the Saphir Medaille D’Or line and the products that are simply branded as Saphir? To understand the way the products within the company compare a little history needs to be reviewed.

The Gold Medal, or Medaille D’Or, was awarded to the Saphir products entered into the 1925 International Exposition held in Paris. Because of the high quality of the polishes and other products honoured in Paris this range has withstood the test of time and is still offered virtually unchanged to discerning owners of leather today. Many experts in leather care consider the Medaille D’Or products to be the best available in the world, echoing the award of 1925.
Formulated of all natural products used for centuries to clean, condition and beautify fine leather, the Saphir Medaille D’Or line continues to be made from turpentine, lanolin, beeswax, mink oil and carnauba wax. Only recently has any variation been made to the original recipes, adding shea butter to some products.
Leather treated with the original Saphir Medaille D’Or products enjoys care free of the silicones and petroleum additives found in inferior polishes and cleaners. The strict avoidance of these chemicals ensures your leather will remain supple, enhancing its durability for a long, beautiful and comfortable life.

Within the listing of products bearing the Saphir name many are offered without the added Medaille D’Or designation. These are also well worth considering but cannot be so named as their formula’s employ ingredients not available or used in the original line.
These products can be for shoe care but they also extend into textile and synthetic care, hence the different formulations. The Beaute du Cuir, or beautiful leather, line can be used without hesitation and may have some specialized items not included in the Medaille D’Or list because the technology to make them did not exist in 1925.

Which Line Is Better?

For your most prized leather items the Saphir Medaille D’Or products are clearly in a class by themselves, offering a premium level of quality. Choosing to purchase these extraordinary leather care products is a wise decision and will repay your investment through the added beauty and longer life that will be enjoyed by your footwear and other leathers.
The rest of the Saphir collection is clearly superior to other leather care items sold at a discount in pharmacies, grocery stores and department stores. It is a solid choice and offers alternatives that you can rely upon for leather care and for the care of fabrics and other textiles and synthetic materials not envisioned in 1925.
Both Saphir lines will impress even the skeptic with their performance and economy of use. Because of the outstanding quality of the ingredients a little goes a long way. Buy and use either line with confidence.
