WashBar Horse & Hound Soap has been designed for larger animals such as horses, big dogs, cattle, goats & other livestock. It's a good old fashioned soap that cleans the animal, leaving them smelling fresh and lemony. The natural active ingredients are antiallergenic, anti-inflammatory, antifungal with insecticidal properties. The soap is designed to help with skin disorders, repel ticks and lice whilst soothing sensitive skin. When used on horses feedback has been that it helped with mud fever, scald & heat rash & that ticks just fell off the next day. For the horse owner, soap is a great way to wash your horse - it won't leak in your tack bag, you won't lose half the bottle when the horse kicks it over part way through the wash, and at the equivalent of over a litre of liquid shampoo in a single bar, it's really economic . The bars of soap are generously big at approx 185g each, smell great and are ribbed to make it easy to use them directly on the animal.
Active Ingredients: Neem Oil Kanuka 100% Pure Essential Oil (Kunzea ericoides) Lemon Myrtle 100% Pure Essential Oil (Backhousia citriodora)
Soap bars are naked – we are philosophically opposed to unnecessary packaging. When you're finished, the unbleached kraft paper bags are compostable. The outer cardboard boxes can either be recycled - or composted as well.
To Wash: Wet the animal thoroughly with water and either rub the soap directly onto their coat or lather up into a sponge and rub in. Work the soap in with a good massage, getting washed should be enjoyable. Leave the soap in for 3 - 5 minutes. If you're washing a horse or other very large animal, you can do this by leaving soap on one side of the animal while you work on the other. Rinse off with clean water. If using on an animal with ticks, you should expect to see ticks falling off within 24 hours. Resist the temptation to pick off any ticks during the wash. Fleas should fall off the animal straight away. In the unlikely event of any skin reaction to this product, discontinue use. Important: Avoid getting soap in animal’s eyes.
Neem Oil (Azadirachta indica) We source ours from India where it has been used for over 2,000 year in Ayurvedic (Indian) Medicine. The oil is pressed from the seeds of the tree. It is natural plant extract that is environmentally safe. It has been used for thousands of years as a natural insecticide – it is known to neutralise and repel pests including fleas, lice, ticks and mites. It neutralises pests by rendering them useless, they just stop functioning, forgetting to eat, breed, lay eggs, fly or even move about. Lemon Myrtle - Backhousia citriodora 100% Pure Essential Oil. We source ours from Australia where it is grown and extracted using the steam distillation method. The oil contains more natural citral than any other known plant giving it a strong lemon scent which leaves your pet smelling really fresh and lemony clean after a wash. The essential oil is known for its antiviral, antibacterial, and calming qualities. Kanuka - Kunzea ericoides 100% Pure Essential Oil. We source ours from a BioGro certified organic producer in Coromandel, New Zealand. Whilst Kanuka oil has numerous benefits we have added it to our soap for its antifungal properties.
