How to care for leather furniture

Looking for good stuff to clean and maintain newish italian leather furniture.

My parents bought an expensive dark brown Italian leather sofa and loveseat set about two years ago. They'd like to start a leather care regiment.

I did some googling and I'm thinking of going with one of the following product lines: Leatherique, Lexol, or LeatherMaster. The former two seem to be used by people who really know thier leather, and are often touted by individual users in car-related forums (hence they are popularly used for auto interiors). The LeatherMaster product is recommended by furniture sites for sofa care but without much specifics. I'm wondering which would truly be best for domestic aniline leather upholstry.

Also, alternative product recommendations or links to further information on the subject of conditioning and cleaning aniline leather furniture is most welcome. Thanks.

I bought a leather care product at Bed, Bath, and Beyond. It seemed to stain my Italian leather sofas. To clean my sofas, I just put a tiny amount of mild dishsoap in a bucket of warm water, and clean with a rag. Here is some useful info:
