Why are we so passionate about natural ingredients and sustainable options? Well, over use of chemicals in every aspect of our life is a real issue, not to mention the hoards of plastic we consume not just in our day to day life, but as equestrians also. I'm sure most of us are guilty of not thinking before we buy sometimes, but did you know that something as simple as a sponge can take 50,000 years to decompose?
We wanted to offer products which not only worked, but that were kind to your skin, your pocket and kind to the environment.
So, here at AG, nothing we make is tested on animals, none of our products contain harsh, synthetic chemicals and we try to use the power of plant based ingredients in everything we do! Even our bottles are made from sugar cane!
using natural ingredients ensures that your horse is not coming in to contact with harmful chemicals, which can be particular damaging after prolonged use, not only to you and your horse, but also to the planet. Did you know there are 'fly sprays' in the equestrian market that are not suitable for contact on skin!? Crazy!
