National Pet Month 2014

April is National Pet Month 2014!

 

Throughout the week of 7-11 April The Kerfoot Group are celebrating National Pet Month & revealing some surprising information about how the Kerfoot Group might be involved in your pet’s care. You may not be aware that not only do we supply our high quality oils to the human food industry; we also have a large customer base of pet food manufacturers.

The low down on oil

Did you know that we have over 500 oils? 500! It’s incredible! The mind boggles with this amount.  Before coming to work at the Kerfoot group, I could name about 5. Pitiful, I know, but using rapeseed in my cooking, neroli on my face and mixing almond with an essential oil was really my max.

But did you know that you can get cucumber seed oil, strawberry seed oil and even watermelon seed oil? The bottom line is, if it has a seed we probably have the oil.

What are all these

Keep the dentist at bay with Coconut Oil

Believe it or not, recent research has suggested that our much loved Coconut Oil can now help to fight tooth decay, and it could soon be winging its way into your toothpaste and mouth wash!  Yet another accomplishment to add to an ever growing list of benefits for one of our favourite oils.

Without boring you, here is  the scientific part… the bacteria Coconut Oil attacks includes streptococcus mutans, an acid-producing microbe that is a major cause of tooth decay.
