Nikwax® Equestrian Range
Aftercare for all your Footwear, Clothing & Equipment
products are Easier to use, SAFER to use and keep you & your
All Nikwax® products are easy to use, either in the washing
machine or with handy applicators. Being WaterBased, Nikwax active
ingredients are drawn along the same paths as water, targeting areas
of leakage and water-absorption. WaterBased applications can be
used on wet or dry materials, so you can treat your jacket or boots
whilst still damp. Much more convenient and effective than solvent-based
products which require a dry surface to work.
Nikwax® WaterBased products are environmentally friendly and
contain no harmful solvents or propellants which contribute to global
warming or ozone depletion. Nikwax® has never tested products
on animals. We have no reports of our products causing skin irritations
(human or equine!)
Nikwax® WaterBased products are up to 5 times more concentrated
than solvent-based liquid products. They are more cost effective
and require less frequent applications. 25 years of research &
development has gone into making Nikwax® products the best at
keeping you and your horse drier.

its formation in 1977, Nikwax Limited, one of the world's leading
waterproofing companies, has supplied products to sport, leisure
and outdoor markets, including associations, organisations and enthusiasts
by outdoor enthusiast Nick Brown, who set out to find an effective
waterproofing product, the company is highly regarded for its first
waterproofing wax used for leather. Today celebrating its Silver
Jubilee, Nikwax has become a global player offering a wide product
range and a customer base across a broad spectrum of different market
sectors, supplying many manufacturing companies and also retailers
in the sectors of activity and outdoor footwear, clothing and equipment.
The company has successfully diversified into other product areas
such as motorcycling leather protection solutions, which are increasingly
being adopted by motorcycle clothing manufacturers.
waterproofing and fabric solutions are an industry standard for
maintaining cloth performance and durability in even the most extreme
weather conditions. High levels of investment in research and development
(R&D) has resulted in a wide range of new product areas based
on the ethos of EASIER (easy to use and apply), SAFER (non-toxic
and environmentally safe) and DRIER (improved performance and durability).
Just some of the recent innovations include softening solutions
for increasing suppleness of leather, spray on waterproofing for
non-breathable fabrics, liquid softeners and also conditioners.
Other examples include the technically unique wash-in waterproofing
products for outdoor fabrics, non-detergent soap (which cleans fabrics
without deteriorating breathability) and proofing for combined footwear
made from fabric, leather, nubuck or even suede. Nikwax led the
way with the development of WaterBased products for reproofing breathable
fabrics such as Gore-Tex , Sympatex , TransActive and eVENT , wash-in
proofing for man-made or natural fibres and WaterBased cleaning
for all outdoor footwear.
