(with horses in mind)
We say this with full certainty: our cosmetics are game-changers. You get everything you need in one place: proper protection, moisturization, nourishment, fast absorption – and you can use it on a daily basis, not only while riding. But will your horse like it? Well, we’ve considered all the ways in which their senses could be bothered by riders’ cosmetics. That’s why we ditched perfume compositions, which may smell nice to us, but can be irritating for our equine friends, and used organic lavender and rose geranium essences instead. We also made sure our cosmetics absorb quickly, leaving no greasy feel, so they don’t stick to your horses’ skin or hair.
What’s important to us?
Horses were our focus, but we didn't forget about your other four-legged friends. All the horse-friendly traits our cosmetics have will be appreciated by other animals and their sensitive senses. We also promise to keep our cosmetics 100% vegan and cruelty-free, and to never distribute them to areas with inadequate animal-testing practices or laws.
We did our best to adjust every aspect of our cosmetics to riders’ needs. The ingredients help give your skin the protection, nourishment, and moisturization it needs – before, during, and after riding. The smell is subtle and pleasant so you can use our cosmetics on a daily basis. The packaging is as practical as possible, so it’s hard to break and easy to take with you wherever you go.
While developing our cosmetics, we closely analyzed each ingredient to make sure everything was absolutely essential. We ran all the necessary tests to ensure all products are safe for both horses and riders, and that they are not tested on animals nor animal-derived. Our packaging is fully recyclable, made with separate plastic and cardboard parts.
No animal-derived ingredients are used in Équilibre cosmetics nor will they be, since we have so many great, safe alternatives, both plant-based and synthetic. But don’t be alarmed by the word ‘synthetic’, these ingredients are completely safe – if you want to see for yourself, head to our ‘Products’ page, where we explain every ingredient and the reason it has been chosen.
We give back
For each product sold, a part of the proceeds is given back to horses and the equestrian community. Our goal is to support different people and charities in every area we’re present. These charities work hard to help horses and make their lives better. Some of them are small, local initiatives, others – bigger foundations and organizations. Curious who they are? There’s a sticker on every package with their name and area of operation. If you like what they do, maybe you can help spread their message. We know they’d appreciate it!
