Few skin conditioners are as soothing, effective, or as long-lasting as shea butter. Now, EcoLicious Equestrian in Manitoba has produced a new product in their impressive line-up of grooming aids that combines the moisturizing qualities of shea butter with conditioning benefits of organic sweet orange essential oil to launch Scrub a Dub Dub Butter Soap Bar.
Apart from the lovely sweet orange scent, the 100 percent organic butter-rich soap bar will gently cleanse your horse’s skin leaving it soft, supple, and vibrantly shiny. The soap bar was launched in August and what makes it so authentic is that company founder Petra McGowan and her team developed the formula for the butter bar themselves, taking the shea butter from the African black soap base, itself enriched with shea butter.
The soap bar is made with 100 percent natural ingredients making it kind on you, your horse and the planet. The soap gently cleanses the coat without stripping or upsetting the skin balance necessary for healthy, supple skin and a silky coat.
Shea butter is produced from the edible nut of the fruit from the karite tree (also called the shea tree) which grows wild in a belt of fertile soil from West to East Africa. The ivory-coloured vegetable butter has been used for cooking for 2,000 years. It is rich in antioxidants, used medicinally, and celebrated in the production of soaps, moisturizers, and lotions.
“Our customers mostly know of the shea butter benefits in moisturizing skin and are very happy to find it in a bath bar because they know it will return the moisture to the skin throughout the bathing process,” says McGowan.
What’s important to customers is that the product is eco-friendly. The company’s commitment to a green production approach not only applied to the soap bar itself but to its fully recycled box and zero plastic packaging. This, says McGowan, is something really appreciated by customers.
“Performance is still the primary driver along with the desire for a ‘cleaner and greener’ grooming experience,” she says. “They love the moisturizing effect of the product and how gentle it cleanses.”
Scrub a Dub Dub Butter Soap Bar makes a perfect, inexpensive Christmas gift or an appreciation gift for any of your horse friends, coaches, barn owners, or friends with backyard equine pets.
