Product Spotlight: Equine Wound Shield

2014-11-21_0948The Pinnaclife Equine Wound Shield creates a water resistant, non-occlusive barrier for skin by using an advanced dimethicone silicone. This barrier acts to protect the skin but it still allows the skin to breathe.

Wound Shield also helps relieve inflammation and itching as well as control and prevent infection.  Wound Shield promotes healing by its ability to penetrate the upper layers of the skin and work from the inside out. It also promotes healing through the signature ingredient Olivamine 10, which protects against free radicals that lead to inflammation and disease, allowing healing to occur up to 50% faster.

It is ideal for all equines with: chronic or acute wounds, non-healing wounds, lacerations, abrasions, skin infections, burns, incision sites, rain rot, ringworm, scratches or”grease heal”,  and bacterial infections.

Product Spotlight: Zinc Oxide Paste

Zinc Oxide Paste is a skin protectant cream for horses Zinc Oxidethat uses micronized zinc oxide and white petrolatum. It forms a semi-occulsive barrier to protect skin against moisture and bacterial contamination.

Micronized zinc oxide is zinc oxide that has been treated to reduce the average size of its particles, producing an ultra-fine powder.Regular zinc oxide can leave a white film on the skin when applied. Products containing micronized zinc oxide do not leave this film, offering a form of invisible zinc oxide protection, because the particles are too small to see with the naked eye.

The zinc oxide paste works against sunburn by completely blocking the skin from UVA/UVB rays by the sun. As a general rule, every 1% of zinc oxide translates to SPF 2, however SPF has not been tested.
