Keratex Hoofcare is a family-run business which began with the creation of flagship product, Keratex Hoof Hardener, in 1990. Dr John Irving MBE, PhD, C Eng, Fraes founded the business based on his idea for Hoof Hardener in Wiltshire, UK. He successfully patented the product, and remained at the helm of the business until he passed away in 2011.
Since its inception in the 90s, Keratex Hoofcare has become a household name and a brand leader in equine hoofcare. Keratex Hoofcare is one of the leading global product ranges in the hoof care industry today with a reputation for hi-tech, revolutionary products and formulas that really work.
Keratex products are used and recommended by the excellent, world-renowned Olympic and Paralympic farrier Ian Hughes. All Keratex products are manufactured within the UK, with many of its suppliers based locally.
