Convinced that the environment has to be in the center of everybody’s concerns, the Ek1n Team decided to combine respect of it and efficiency to offer a range of natural care products. By getting inspired by ancestral recipes, the brand’s products are a mix of tradition and green chemistry, which allows it to propose a range adapted to riders’s current problems.

Hi Amber,

Difficult to answer this question, we have the widest range of care products in 100% natural and biodegradable! So the best product is one that meets your expectations and needs your horse ...
However we have some innovative products such as waterproof sunscreen, insect repellent waterproof and suitable for fragile and dermacious skins, our clay-based ointments and essential oils that need not be removed, etc...

Hello Ben,

I am the owner of the original book of Sieur Solleysel, who was the first squire of Louis IVX. This book written in Old French contains recipes for the care of horses. You will find some extracts on our site: https://www.ek1n.fr/pages/recettes-ancestrales-2/
For the formulation of certain products, we were inspired by certain recipes, which we reformulated with scientific knowledge today.
We formulate and produce in green chemistry, you will find an explanation here: https://www.ek1n.fr/pages/pourquoi-choisir-ekin/
And our products are 100% natural and biodegradable.

Hi Levis,

Sunscreen can be applied wherever the horse exhibits a photosensitization reaction. You will of course avoid the eyes and the ear canal! It was designed not to melt and to be visible, it is waterproof and holds 4 days on a horse in the field that rolls and lives its life :)
It can be applied on wounds or crusts. It promotes the regrowth of hair (unlike human sun creams that contain agents to limit hair growth).
Last point, it is not toxic if the horse licks it.

Hello James,

No, sunscreen has more restorative properties for the skin so it's useless to remove it and it's even advisable to leave it. It's waterproof so it resists water and holds over 4 days on a horse.
If, however, you want to make it invisible because you go back to a competition, for example, you just have to rub it with a fabric to eliminate its white color.

Hello Jack,

The insect repellent is on an oily base without water, so it does not evaporate.
It resists the sweat of the horse. It is effective against flies and mosquitoes but also against "creepers" like ticks, flat flies, horseflies, fleas, lice.
It will resist under a little rain, but if you shower your horse it will have to recover.
Depending on the horses and the protein level of their sweat, it will hold from 12 to 48H.
It isn't aggressive on sensitive skin and/or dermatitis.

Hello Connor,

The last product we have released is the care for leather that cleans and renovates. It has been conceived as a skin care in collaboration with specialists in dermato and saddlery: indeed what people can know is that the properties of a "dead" or "living" skin are the same! Another essential point for optimum use: it does not slip and does not stain.
Our next product? It is being developed at R & D and it is still a secret :)

Hello Molly,

We worked on specifications, formulation and testing with professors, marshals and veterinarians even though we are not a pharmaceutical company.
We have a chemical engineer on the team.
We manufacture our products with our own manufacturing tools.

Hi Megan,

Your question is very broad. There are, for example, skin pathologies due to autoimmune diseases which will not be "cured" but for which they will be able to bring about improvement and comfort in the symptoms.

Hi Maddy,

For the first-aid pharmacy: skin repair balm https://www.ek1n.fr/produit/baume-reparateur-cutan...
It disinfects and accelerates the healing of superficial wounds in the horse. It forms a non-occlusive protective film against insects and dust. It promotes fast regrowth of hair in the original color. So in a small pot it contains everything needed to cure the bobos!
In the grooming bag, I recommend:
- A good hoof ointment to be applied once a week. Https://www.ek1n.fr/produit/ekin-onguent-sabot-sec...
- The detangling hair care and dressing of dress to avoid long painful dressings, and well to nourish and protect hair and hair. Https://www.ek1n.fr/produit/soin-demelant-crin/
- washable care tissues for the care of eyes and nostrils, ..https: //www.ek1n.fr/produit/kin-lingette-de-soin-...
- the leather care to keep its leathers clean and healthy. Https://www.ek1n.fr/produit/ekin-pack-soin-cuir-ga...
