Trim/rubber cleaner

Can someone recommend a trim and/or rubber cleaner that is not to shiny/greasy. I thought I saw a recommendation but I can't find it anymore.

Thanks

Shine Society Semi Gloss Protective Dressing for Vinyl, Plastic, Rubber, Leather and More, with Microfiber Towel Included (18 oz.) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01LXZPIGC..._RLJ1Cb9W9CS39

68 five star reviews. I have used it and works well, nice soft satin finish and nothing too greasy or shiny. Be sure to wipe off with a clean cloth to control the finish. It can be slippery if used in excess or not wiped off properly.

Two I've found that are excellent for rubber seals:

And general exterior clear plastic protectant:

And overall cockpit cleaner/protectant:

That cockpit cleaner is an excellent recommendation - another vote for it.

For rubber seals and the like, I use the second link you shared, the Gummi Pflege. It does go on with a little shiny look as it's moisturizing the rubber, but by the next morning it's no longer glossy at all.
