What makes COAT DEFENSE work so well?
We use a mixture all natural ingredients to create the proper environment for skin to heal and remain healthy.
Baking Soda: One of the safest and versatile substances around. Baking Soda can be used quite effectively to change the terrain of tissues and cells quickly. And it’s PH balancing, anti-bacterial, and anti -fungal. Baking Soda dissipates odor on animals, humans, and equipment ( helmets, saddle-pads, boots, wraps, etc) on contact.
Arrowroot Powder: A silky, soft and slippery powder that is PH balancing. It’s moisture absorbing, and protects against rubs and chafing. And it can absorb moisture without drying out the skin, making it perfect for absorbing sweat. Unlike commercial powders, arrowroot powder won’t leave skin/coat feeling or looking dry or chalky.
Bentonite Clay: Known for its ability to continuously draw out pathogens. These include heavy metals, toxins, bacteria and fungus, all that can cause infection and inflammation. Because it keeps wound sites to remain dry, it allows them to heal from the body outward.
Cornstarch: Is a moisture absorbing powder that has been shown to possess anti-inflammatory benefits, soothe itchy skin, and help to calm rashes, bites and burns.
Witch Hazel: Has anti-inflammatory, antibiotic, anti-oxidant, and analgesic properties. Relieves itch, reduces pain, and can help prevent swelling.
Hemp Seed Oil: Has anti-inflammatory and soothing effects. Nature’s perfectly balanced oil containing 80% of the essential fatty acids required by the skin to maintain its integrity and function. It contains 23% protein, along with methionine and cysteine. These are sulfur containing amino acids required in the production of healthy skin and coats. The essential fatty acid, linoleic, as well as its metabolite, gamma-linolenic acid, have proven to have beneficial therapeutic effects on the skin. These fatty acids contain glycerides, sterols and phospholipids.
Oil of peppermint: Scientific research is revealing an abundance of potential health benefits. This includes aroma therapeutic, topical, and internal applications. It’s valued in skin care for its antibacterial properties. And Oil of Peppermint has a slight numbing effect on the skin. Because of this, it is helpful for reducing skin irritations caused by insect bites or exposure to toxic plants such as poison ivy.
