The supplier of the Liquid Leather range of leathercare products, Gliptone Leathercare UK, owned by Star Brands, is to cease trading on 31st August.

A leading name in leathercare since 1972, when it started out refurbishing classic cars and carrying out general trim leather repairs to modern cars, Gliptone was the first UK company to use a water-based system for old leather restoration. 

A statement from the company reads: "As we are all aware times are challenging for retailers and it is with great sadness that we have decided to close the Gliptone side of the business. The decision was a hard one, but we decided to take this step before the business became less viable."
