Rescue Horse Wound Led to Skin Product Breakthrough

Bethany Padgett had tried everything to help Tink heal. The horse, one of her rescue cases, had run into a piece of rebar and had a deep puncture wound in his chest. Tink’s wound wouldn’t take stitches. It was so deep Padgett could stick her arm in it. It oozed and bled. The only hope was that the wound would eventually heal from the inside out. Tink’s prognosis? Not so good.

Then Padgett remembered an ointment her Cherokee grandmother had used on her as a child, and, as a last ditch effort save him, she recreated the herbal skin ointment using calendula.

“For years I had used calendula for wound care in my home. So, I thought, why wasn’t I using it in the barn?’” Padgett says.

Tink’s wound showed overnight improvement and was completely healed in four weeks with no scarring. Padgett started experimenting with formulas using natural oils that have healing and insect repelling properties. Padgett tried the mixture on several other hard cases at her rescue farm. It worked.

Equiderma Wound Ointment heals even the toughest cuts, scrapes and abrasions. Formulated with organic ingredients from calendula, neem oil, jojoba oil, sunflower oil, olive oil and lanolin, this all-natural product’s ingredients promote healing and have anti-microbial properties.

Equiderma’s Wound Healing ointment has stood up to some tough testing, says Padgett, Equiderma inventor and founder of Telesis Animal Health, the company that makes Equiderma products.

Today, Equiderma Wound Ointment is made with sustainable fair-trade grown herbs. Studies show the primary ingredient, calendula, speeds wound healing, by increasing blood flow to the wounded area and by helping the body produce granulation tissue. Neem oil, a natural insect repellent, has been used to aid the healing of skin conditions for hundreds of years. Calendula and neem both help to repel pests of all kinds. Equiderma Wound Healing ointment is available in a 1 lb tub from major equestrian retailers or direct from the company at http://www.equiderma.com.
