An interesting & informative guest blog by Paula Fenton from Equine Oils on her natural, eco friendly range of horse skincare, balms for manes, tails & legs & shampoo loofahs.
I absolutely love oils and herbs and everything coming from natural sources
I have spent the best part of 5 years learning how to incorporate them into skin care products
it all started with a aromatherapy course at a local college I never expected it to lead me where I am today Learning how to make my own products allows me to know exactly what I do need in them and what I really don’t
I’m also the first person to create a solid shampoo in a loofah scrubber designed to wash stable stains with the loofah grows like cucumbers so are fully sustainable and can go on the muck heap as the fibrous loofah just rots down
which is good news when trying to be more eco friendly
I also make balms for horses manes and tails and legs
using herbs infused into skin loving oils and beeswax to help care and protect from the awful British winters we get of rain and mud
my own horses live out all year round so I really understand what type of products are needed and helpful
All oils have a number rating between 0 and 5 0 being the most absorbed and 5 just sitting on top of the skin blocking pores and causing the skin to get dry and flaky so many products contain level 4 and 5 oils coconut oil is a level 4 and mineral oils a by product of petroleum are level 5 I thought there was definitely a gap in the market for me to offer a superior product and a affordable price it’s been a amazing first year in business and I’m so looking forward to what the future holds.
