BPE Hoof Soak contains the following active ingredients.
Magnesium Sulphate - commonly known as Epson Salts, makes up the bulk of our Hoof Soak recipe. It is known to help draw out the infection that causes very painful hoof abscess's and also provide some mild pain relief.
Activated Coconut Charcoal - Made from the left over coconut components after the oil is made, firstly by processing it at high temperature and then “activating” it with steam. Thanks to this process, the charcoal expands creating a porous surface that traps toxins. The charcoals natural ability to absorb has been boosted by the activation. Charcoal is used both as a detoxifier to remove toxins and it has the ability to bind to dirt and infection and draw it away from the body.
Cloves - Fine powdered cloves are used in Hoof Soak to help removed the dead skin cells and help in blood circulation of he hoof. Cloves are also known to have both antibacterial and anti fungal properties. Cloves also provide mild pain relief.
Lemon Rind - is rich in antioxidants which tend to detoxify the skin and body from infection. It also has both antifungal and antibacterial properties to assist in the healing and prevention of infection.
