What is B-grade?
It refers to items which have cosmetic defects, tins which have surface scratches, bits of dried waxes on the surface due to production issues, or products which whose expiry dates are fast approaching. Hence, you are able to purchase them at a reduced price. However, they are 100% usable and are still able to provide a Shine when buffed.
One of Saphir's signature product, the Pate de luxe is a shoe paste based on beeswax, carnauba wax and turpentine. An essential product for glazing or shining your shoes, it is often used in combination with the Creme Surfine or Pommadier Creme polishes to create varying layers of shines. With colored waxes, it has a light re-colouring effect.
Please use wax polishes in moderation so as not to ruin your leather, as Saphir's formulation is very rich in waxes which can clog up the leather in the long run. Using it long term without maintenance can lead to cracks, especially along stress points like the vamp and facing.
