What you need to know about leather car seats is that unless you have a really high end car, the leather they use to make the seat covers is not very good quality. You are correct that really good quality leather breathes, but low quality leather has been processed on the outside and doesn't breathe at all. For the average leather car seat, anything you do to get the dirt and body oils off of the surface is good, but putting lanolin and other moisturizers on leather that doesn't breathe is a waste of time and money.

No one lives forever, the trick is creating something that will.
