Leather conditioner Leica cameras?

I have 1 Leica in total, an old III who's leather is in very good shape, but losing a bit of the coloring or a turning a bit pale. I don't want to change the color beyond what it should, or do anything without knowing if it will help lubricate and conserve the leather.

Does anyone know if any brand or product is safe, and particular brand for black leather of these cameras, and how to apply it? I'll not do anything, but it seems to me the case is dry, and unless cared will brittle and break, and the camera black one is a bit lighter than it should, especially where the fingers press when holding it.

Thanks for any tip to the restoration experts!
