Absorbine® is proud to introduce Fungasol®, your go-to solution to help treat fungal and bacterial skin conditions on horses! Our new cleansing shampoo, convenient spray, and thick ointment all contain therapeutic ingredients plus the addition of revolutionary Biopolysan® booster, proven to boost the effectiveness of the formula. Our new equine skin treatment with Biopolysan helps combat the germs that cause equine skin conditions.
You may be familiar with the name Fungasol already. It’s been a trusted product for years under our sister brand Equine America®. We took the opportunity to improve it by adding the Biopolysan booster, a patented technology derived from coconuts, before giving it a new home under the Absorbine Skin & Coat Care line.
Often, it’s hard for a horse owner to know whether a skin infection is fungal or bacterial without a lab test. Plus in many cases, a secondary fungal or bacterial infection can confuse things. In both cases, Fungasol has you covered. It helps to treat typical fungi, gram-positive and negative bacteria and even some enveloped viruses. When the zone of inhibition of new Fungasol with added Biopolysan was tested, a 29% boost in activity was recorded compared to the original formula. The effectiveness proven in lab tests was seen in action on horses as well, as skin conditions cleared up in as little as a week in some cases.
A variety of fungal and bacterial skin conditions can be addressed using Fungasol, including rain rot, pastern dermatitis (also known as scratches, mud fever, greasy heal etc.) girth itch, ringworm, and some of the underlying causes of prolonged tail rubbing. Fungasol will even help treat shallow wound bacteria, and the formula will not sting.
The addition of Fungasol to the Absorbine line of skin and coat care products offers horse owners advanced technology that helps keep their horses looking and feeling their best. “The science behind Fungasol with added Biopolysan booster raises this product as an innovative solution that can bring horses real relief when they need it the most,” says Jaime McKinley, Vice President of New Business Development. “We are proud to bring Fungasol under the Absorbine brand, a name horse owners know they can put confidence in when it comes to the health of their animals.”
