I think the problem with that is that in my experience, companies that make leather often do not also make cleaner and conditioners. Not only that, but most toy companies that are making products with leather aren't making the leather either, even when they say handmade. Particularly with BDSM stuff. They're purchasing the leather from some other company that usually isn't disclosed.
It's not a particular science, really. Leather care products are just what they say they are. Some are just higher quality than others. Lexol makes decent fairly priced entry level cleaners and conditioners.
The thing to know though, is that leather CANNOT be sterilized. Hopefully you all already know this. Anything that would truly sterilize leather would also damage it. You can clean grime away with cleanser, but bacteria will likely still remain. You could wipe down the surface with alcohol or hydrogen peroxide, but again, there's a high change that could damage the leather. At the very least, dry it out and change the color. Water is also, generally speaking, not that good for leather.
And no matter how you clean your leather, you should always use some kind of conditioner after because cleanser/cleaners and even water will dry the leather out and no one wants that.
