Saphir Médaille d'Or is some of the finest of shoe care products available. Made in France, Saphir has its origins in formulations that earned it the award of the GOLD MEDAL, PARIS 1925. Composed of all-natural, pine-based oil, vegetable, animal, and mineral waxes, and mink oils, its formula has remained unchanged and has not suffered the technical progress of chemistry such as the addition of silicones, resins and other harmful petroleum-based products. The quality of Saphir’s MDO collection is immediately evident when opened as one enjoys the aroma of the pine trees used in its oil. Please do take care of your shoes, and they will take care of you!
