What do the first episode of Happy Days, Nolan Ryan’s 100.4 mph fastball, and the construction of the Sydney Opera House all have in common with ShowSheen®? These events all happened 40 years ago – the same year that ShowSheen was introduced! And this year at Absorbine®, we’re excited to celebrate 40 years of helping horse owners achieve healthy manes and tails with ShowSheen!
Did you know that ShowSheen is considered the #1 selling hair polish & detangler around the world? ShowSheen revolutionized horse grooming when it was first introduced in the 1970s, and it’s as effective today as it was then.
ShowSheen Hair Polish & Detangler, which has helped more horses win ribbons than any other grooming product, won the hearts of horse owners for its multi-purpose utility, and unsurpassed shine. These days, ShowSheen is a fixture at equine competitions but it can be found in the tack boxes of both recreational and competitive riders throughout the world.
ShowSheen Hair Polish & Detangler has many uses – it can be used daily on horses to keep manes and tails free from knots, tangles, and burrs. It also repels dirt and dust, keeping horses clean longer, and reducing future grooming time. Over its 40-year history, improvements have been made to the ShowSheen formula, like the addition of silk proteins and pro-vitamins. These strengthen and condition hair, for long, full manes and tails.
Beyond its detangling and shine-enhancing powers, ShowSheen works wonders for clipping and blanketing. Spraying ShowSheen before clipping helps clippers glide through hair easier, and using it before blanketing prevents static cling, blanket zaps, and blanket rubs.
The ShowSheen product family has grown in the last 40 years too, as we have added innovative new products to meet customers’ grooming needs. The original polish & detangler is available as a continuous spray, and there is a concentrated detangler gel for the toughest knots and burrs. Rounding out the product family is a bleach-free, non-blueing ShowSheen Stain Remover & Whitener, and a 2-in-1 conditioning shampoo.
