Skin Saver Winter Skin Balm
What is it
Skin Saver Winter Skin Balm for horses is a rich and nourishing balm made from 100% natural ingredients. It is designed specifically to protect the skin during the winter months, from all that wet and mud! When it comes to care products for animals there is no legal requirement to list the ingredients on the label, but we think it is important for you to know exactly what you are putting on your horse’s skin. We set about producing a natural skin balm which really is natural. For example, there are no emulsifiers, thickeners, preservatives, petroleums, parabens, or chemicals of any type. And, we list all our ingredients on the label. Our Winter Skin Balm is kind to the skin, and kind to the environment.
What is it for
Our Skin Saver Winter Skin Balm for horses is perfect to use on troublesome dry or scabby patches. For instance, where rubs have caused hair loss or where the mud and wet has irritated the lower legs. The Neem & Tea Tree oils are both anti-microbial, and the rich oil based formula helps to protect from wet, while soothing the skin and encouraging hair growth.
How is it made
Skin Saver Winter Skin Balm for horses is a 100% natural skin balm. We carefully blend the ingredients to create a very rich moisturizing balm.

Skin Saver Balm is a natural, hand made product. As is the nature with oils and waxes it will tend to be harder in cold weather, and softer in warm. Apply with your fingertips to areas where there is dry or scabby skin. It is rich and oily and should be applied sparingly – you may find that you don’t need to use it everyday. A little goes a long way.
For Skin prone to mud reactions we would highly recommend feeding our Skin Saver supplement which will support the immune system and therefore target the root cause.
