Some biocides used in the leather industry have a certain toxicity and are prohibited by the directives in force. A product with antifungal properties containing coriander essential oil was tested as finishing auxiliary for bovine shoe upper leather. The paper presents the results obtained in leather finishing using the new product AF-C and evaluation of its antifungal activity against Aspergillus niger strain. For maximum efficiency, the concentration of AF-C antifungal product must not decrease below 65% in the final dressing for leather finishing.
