Keratin: The Miracle Ingredient in Horse Grooming Products

As a horse owner, you know that maintaining your horse's health and beauty is a priority. From their hooves to their mane, each part requires special attention to keep them in good condition. Among the many ingredients used in grooming products for horses, Keratin has emerged as a miracle ingredient for hair and skin care. In this article, we'll explore the benefits of Keratin and why we included it in our ShowBarn Secret Indian Lilac 2 in 1 Shampoo.

What is Keratin?

Keratin is a type of fibrous protein that is naturally present in the hair, nails, and skin of both humans and animals. It is a vital component of these structures, providing strength, elasticity, and durability. It is particularly important for the health of the hair and skin, as it forms a protective layer that shields them from environmental damage.

Benefits of Keratin for Horse Hair and Skin

Keratin has many benefits for horse hair and skin. Here are some of the reasons why we included it in our ShowBarn Secret Indian Lilac 2 in 1 Shampoo:

Strengthens hair: Keratin is known to strengthen hair by improving its elasticity and preventing breakage. It helps to repair damaged hair by filling in gaps in the hair shaft, making it less prone to split ends.

Improves skin health: Keratin helps to maintain healthy skin by forming a protective barrier against environmental damage. It can also improve the skin's ability to retain moisture, keeping it hydrated and supple.

Adds shine: Keratin can give horse hair a lustrous shine, making it look healthy and well-groomed. It also helps to reduce frizz and flyaways, giving the coat a smoother appearance.

Promotes growth: By strengthening hair and improving the health of the skin, Keratin can promote healthy hair growth. It can also help to reduce hair loss by preventing breakage and damage.
