What are Sulphates & Parabens?

May 03, 2022

Sulphates are a chemical detergent which causes your shampoo to lather as it is a foaming and cleansing agent. 

Sulphates are extremely effective at removing dirt and oil, in fact, they’re a little too effective! Sulphates are harsh on skin and hair, so they strip away natural oils and moisture that keeps your horses coats, manes and tails shiny and soft! They can cause a number of problems for your horses including itchiness, drying, irritation and even hair loss. Sulphates are found in most supermarket shampoos and cheap international brands


Parabens are a group of chemicals that have been used since the 1950’s to prevent bacteria and act as a preservative in shampoos and other products. Parabens are xenoestrogens which means they have a similar composition to hormones found in the human body. Xenoestrogens are thought to disrupt hormones and can even pose as a cancer risk with long-term use.
