Which leather cleaner/sealer for Silverstone?

I had Oyster leather in my 335is and was terrified of blue jean transfer and am worried about it in this car too. What does everyone recommend for a good cleaner and/or sealer and how often would you use it? Thanks all.

Any issues with blue jean transfer in these?

Is this the right stuff, and do you use it? "Leather Shield"

It works really well, anything that looks like dye transfer wipes right off. The cleaner does an incredible job cleaning leather.
