The mineral oil is added to make up for the human skin = oils that are removed by the alcohol. The label usually does tell of the water =   content being 30% but the dissolved mineral oil is almost never mentioned.   Al Sefl

A light sanding after = removing old leather is needed. I always put a primer coat of hot glue on wood AND leather prior to final gluing.   Rick
