Equine Hoof Oil

Review this product

 

Contains:

  • Coconut Oil (Cocos nucifera)
  • Grapeseed Oil (cold pressed Vitis vinifera)
  • Natural beeswax
  • Palmarosa (Cymbopogon martini)

 

  • Coconut Oil:
    • High in Omega 3 and 6 fats which nourish the hoof.
    • Reduces the likelihood of splits/cracks.
    • Creates lovely shine for showing application.
  • Grapeseed Oil:
    • Helps restore and strengthen Keratin (the vital structural protein in strong hooves, hair, nails).
    • High in Vitamin E - a fat soluble antioxidant, essential in the maintenance of hoof structure.
    • High in vitamin C which helps ensure nourishment deep into the keratin cell structure.
  • Beeswax:
    • Creates a natural waterproof barrier to keep moisture in but does NOT create an artificial seal on the hoof.
    • Ensures the coconut, grapeseed and palmarosa remain on the hoof for as long as possible.
  • Palmarosa:
    • Facilitates cell regeneration/new hoof growth.
    • Antibacterial and antifungal – helps treat foot rot and common fungal hoof infections.

Our hoof oil does NOT contain:

Neatsfoot Oil – an animal fat which contains very low levels of Saturated Fat, Monounsaturated Fat, Omega 6 and sodium. So limited benefits.  In most hoof oils the Neatsfoot oil used will contain petrochemicals used as a thinner and therefore offers even less nutritional value.

 

Stockholm Tar – A pine resin resulting from the burning of pinewood. This offers very little nutritional or moisturising value for the hoof. It does create a waterproof barrier. Numerous studies indicate negative health effects for horse and rider.

 

Hoof Grease - Rendered down animal fat, bone & offal. Commonly sourced from beef, pork, sheep and poultry. Contains very low levels of Saturated Fat, Monounsaturated Fat, Omega 6 and sodium.
