The Dirt on Shampoo & Conditioner


The Dirt on Shampoo and Conditioner

Shampooing gets rid of dirt, oil, sweat buildup, and those pernicious eggs and excrement left behind by unwanted insect visitors. When it comes to choosing the right shampoo for your equine, it all boils down to the product’s active ingredients. You want to find something strong enough to inhibit the growth of bacterial and fungal skin issues, but gentle enough to leave behind the coat’s natural protective oils. On top of this, you may be dealing with a fussy or sensitive horse, or one that battles allergies to particular ingredients or environmental factors. In the equine world, finding a shampoo that meets these criteria, is eco-friendly and safe to expose to your skin is like searching for gold. That’s where we come in. Equiderma Neem Shampoo‘s 100% active ingredient, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant formula offers far more than the traditional cleansers on the market. Created by our founder and CEO Bethany Padgett to salvage the health and happiness of a beloved rescue horse, it has proven countless times that it works powerfully, naturally and painlessly.

Just like us, horses benefit from the use of both a cleansing shampoo and a hydrating conditioner.  Both solutions will calm hives, soothe sweet itch and insect bite hypersensitivity, control mites living in feather and treat all manner of fungal and bacterial issues. Doubling as a detangler, our naturally hydrating conditioner will strengthen, soften and soothe your horse’s skin, mane, tail, and coat to a lustrous, glossy glow. Equiderma Neem Conditioner alleviates dryness, itching and dandruff, and is renowned for leaving your horse feeling velvety soft. At Equiderma HQ, neem is one of our favorite ingredients for a good reason. Safe for you and your horse, neem disrupts the mating and feeding cycles of nuisance insects, exponentially decreasing their numbers around the barn when used consistently. Both Equiderma Shampoo and Conditioner feature neem oil as a key ingredient.

When weather conditions don’t allow for a wet bath, Daily Defense Dry Shampoo will soak up sweat and dirt and leave your horse feeling great!
