Equifix Wound Cream TTO contains a high percentage of natural Tea Tree Oil with Zinc Oxide in an aqueous cream base. These active ingredients have been scientifically proven to be effective against fungal and bacterial infections.
Tea Tree Oil (Melaleuca alternifolia), has been used in Australia for over 100 years, the primary use being for its antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties. Reviewed science has shown it that it also has anti-microbial and anti-fungal properties. In particular, it is very effective in combating the bug called Dermatophilus – that is the cause of what we call Mud Fever.
Zinc Oxide is also a proven and very effective tool used extensively for wound healing due to its antibacterial properties and that it has significant epithelialisation properties to advance healing. Epithelisation is the essential process of cells migrating upward to repair and close the area of the wound.
