Default Leather interior treatment

What is everyone using on their leather interior? My drivers seat outside edge is getting creased some and the truck is just a year old.

I use the meguirs gold wipes just they don't seem to penetrate well.

Any leather care experts out there?

Leather CPR

http://www.amazon.com/Leather-CPR-CC-18QC-Conditioner-Inverted/dp/B005FYGW62/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1395242921&sr=8-1&keywords=leather+cpr http://www.amazon.com/Leather-CPR-CC-18QC-Conditioner-Inverted/dp/B005FYGW62/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1395242921&sr=8-1&keywords=leather+cpr

I use it on my '13 KR seats and it works quite well. Returns the "new" look each time, cleans, conditions, and smells good too. It doesn't get rid of the creases you are talking about though. That just comes with owning leather seats.

Lexol leather care products are great and have always worked well for me.

Ford puts a vinyl protectant over the leather (except king ranch) and needs nothing more than water and mild soap to clean it.

Save the fancy expensive leather cleaners & conditioners for the real stuff ;-)

I try to use Lexol as often as possible. Every 2 2weeks or so on my seats. Also, most importantly, is how you get in and out of your truck. Dont slide off or jump on there like a tossed sack of potatoes. Develop a way to get in without rubbing the lateral supports all to hell.

Try coconut oil or paste, sounds weird, but it softens it and can hide those wear cracks considerably, and it's cheap too.

I use pinnacle black label followed by their vinyl/leather sealant in all my vehicles. Looks great and restores very nicely.

THIS^^^^

Don't "slide" out of your truck. Put your foot on your running board and lift your butt off the seat. This will prevent creases and/or cracking. I'm so **** about this I give my frequent passengers a tutorial on how to get out my truck...
