Product Spotlight: Zinc Oxide Paste

Zinc Oxide Paste is a skin protectant cream for horses Zinc Oxidethat uses micronized zinc oxide and white petrolatum. ItĀ 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.

Pinnaclife equine zinc oxide paste is ideal for foal diarrhea, urine scald, scratches aka “grease heel”, rashes, photosensitivity, and sunburn. 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.
