Simply squeeze a small amount of the cream onto your hands and gently massage it into your horses' and hounds' exposed areas, such as the nose, ears, and around the eyes. Its smooth texture ensures effortless application, making it a stress-free experience for both you and your animals.


Shea butter and coconut oil have SPF of around 4-6. Raspberry seed oil has the highest natural SPF of between 35 - 50, however, please be sun smart with your animals and follow safe sun practices.

My go to equine skin care

I just keep coming back for more of this. It literally can be used from head to hoof. I use it for wounds. Wound cleaning. Bacterial skin infections. Thrush. Insect repellent. Coat shine. Hoof shine and hoof health. Hair growth after an Injury. Dry skin. It even works to repel mud from manes and tails. Knees, hocks and socks. If there is any mud. Just a quick squirt the hose and the hair and skin are Instantly clean. It should be in everyone’s grooming and first aid kit. Great quality spray bottle too. I’ve been through a few and they work great. Such an awesome product. Smells amazing and my horse thanks you.

I recommend this product!

Thank you!

The lovely owner of this company gave me some of this for free at the Baby Show and I was sceptical because my 1yr old son is allergic to most soaps and skin products, but... We have been using it a few months now and this is the first product we have used that has not caused a rash and has cleared up his eczema! And it actually cleans him! The scent is subtle and pleasant and it forms a great lather. THANK YOU!

I recommend this product!

Easy to use and dries quickly. Beautiful scents. Helps with my eczema and as it is non irritant I could use it on any part of my body that needs healing, with no hesitation.

I recommend this product!

Round of Appaws

What an incredible product. Not only has it soothed and softened my hounds paws, it has also removed the itch from my own eczema. I love the natural healing properties of this balm, and the scent is lovely too. Win Win!

Post workout bliss

I spritz this cooling, soothing spray on to my OTTB's legs and hind end after workouts. I can feel the cooling effect on my own skin so I know he's appreciating the same sensation, especially after strenuous muscle building exercises.

Because it's all natural, I'm confident leaving this product on to dry. The lemongrass essential oil seems to be keeping the nasty summer flies at bay!

I recommend this product!
