Looking for leather polish

Hi EFers

I'm looking for leather polish to use on several types of dark leather - probably something generic rather than super fancy. The ideal product would not only polish, but also protect the leather.
Do you have any recommendations for such a product (preferably available in a brick-and-mortar store rather than online)?


Thanks.

Ikea has leather-care stuff but can't remember the product name - just look at leather chairs in the online store and you'll see it offered in the list of accessories (and then you can go buy it in the brick-and-mortar store)

Hard or soft leather? Shoes are fine with a wax polish, furniture etc less so.

Shoes and furniture, hard and soft. But don't ask me what kind of leather.
Suppose I should get a non-wax polish then to cover all bases.

You want a leather conditioner then, something which has no colouring in it. Also sometimes referred to as Ledermilch. Coop, Migros et al.

They are all basically an emulsion of oils and waxes, often lanolin.

EDIT: I didn't put the URL behind "lea th er conditioner above", apparently some artificial intelligence is helping me.
