Keratex Hoofcare is a family-run business which began with the creation of our flagship product, Keratex Hoof Hardener, in 1991.
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 Dr Irving was at the helm of the business until he passed away in 2011. The Keratex range has grown well over the years and still continues to expand with an ever-increasing global network of suppliers.
Keratex Hoofcare is based in the stunning Wiltshire countryside. It comprises three offices, a 4000sq ft Keratex product distribution centre and an equestrian area nearby.
Keratex Hoofcare’s founders combine a keen interest in all things equine with a firm background in science.
