Principles of responsible product development and environmentally-conscious production


For over 100 years, our customers have placed their trust in COLLONIL when it comes to shoe and leather care. They rely on the maximum quality and reliability of our products. We are committed to this tradition – and use our innovative strength to openly meet the demands of our customers every day anew. We also want to live up to this claim with regard to the environmental compatibility of our products. That is why this voluntary declaration documents our principles for responsible product development and environmentally-conscious production.


COLLONIL products combine the highest possible effectiveness with the best possible environmental compatibility. Our goal is to develop products that contain the lowest possible proportion of environmentally harmful ingredients while being as effective as possible.

Whenever possible, we use natural ingredients such as natural waxes and oils in our products.

In addition, we strive to develop water-based and thus solvent-free products wherever possible. However, in order to guarantee optimum effectiveness and also ensure a high degree of user-friendliness, we cannot do without solvents for certain products. In these cases, we exclusively use high-purity gasoline. We are also increasingly using sugar surfactants that are produced from renewable raw materials.

Collonil has not used PFOA and PFOS for decades.

For our aerosol products containing propellants, we only use gases that do not damage the ozone layer. Wherever technically and effectively feasible, we have been using propellant-free pump sprays for decades.

Our customers should also be able to rely on the effectiveness and quality of COLLONIL products in the future. That is why we see it as our responsibility to constantly develop our products further and always optimise their effect and environmental compatibility in accordance with the latest state of the art.
