Nikwax, the global leader in outdoor aftercare has long been the go-to brand for outdoor enthusiasts looking to prolong the life of their outdoor gear sustainably.  Whether you’re looking for a product to boost the water repellency of your down-filled jacket or need a solution to restore the waterproof capabilities of your walking boots, Nikwax has the answer.  Founded in 1977, founder Nick Brown made it his business to devise aftercare products that would deliver effective washing and waterproofing capabilities whilst having as little impact on the environment as possible.  All Nikwax products are PFC-free and water-based with many of them having won multiple awards.

Nikwax celebrates its 40th anniversary this year - forty years of outdoor innovation.  With a long list of industry ‘firsts’ as well as a few ‘onlys’, Nikwax has never used PFCs or aerosol propellants in any of its treatments and was the first outdoor business to actively oppose and eliminate PFCs from its entire product range and supply chain.   All its waterproofing products are entirely water-based and for 40 years, Nikwax has been operationally carbon balanced by forest regeneration too.

So whether it’s Tech Wash, TX.Direct, Waterproofing Wax for Leather or one of the many other Nikwax formulations you go for, you can be rest assured that Nikwax will deliver the highest quality protection whilst having a minimal environmental impact.
