Hoof sealants: How do they work?

Hoof products seem to work on several (seemingly contradictory) principles. You can buy creams, oils, and moisturizers that supposedly moisturize; or you can go the sealant route which would seem to toughen, or maybe lock moisture in. As a 46 year old woman, I get the concept of moisturizing. But sealants? Not so obvious. So I read this article with interest, hope you find it interesting too....
