Zymox equine defense enzymatic skin & coat wash cleans and maintains a healthy skin and coat on horses. LP3 Enzyme System Each enzyme has it's own unique properties and when combined, pack a powerful antimicrobial punch. These enzymes are found naturally in milk and are 100% safe and gentle. For years it has been known that milk has a natural ability to kill bacteria, viruses and yeast. Only recently have the protein and enzyme system responsible been identified and reproduced. The three most effective are Lactoperoxidase, Lysozyme and Lactoferrin. Their antimicrobial activities are briefly listed below. Lactoferrin - An iron binding protein found in milk and other mammalian secretions inhibits growth and destroys microorganisms by depriving them of iron. Lysozyme - An enzyme that effectively kills bacteria by disrupting and splitting the formation of the cell wall. Lactoperoxidase - A known milk peroxidase which when combined with hydrogen peroxide, thiocyanate or iodide produces hypoiodite ions or hypothiocyanate ions. These ions inhibit microorganisms by oxidizing their metabolic pathways. ZYMOX EQUINE DEFENSE Skin & Coat Wash offers an optimal way to improve and maintain healthy skin and coat by gently washing away environmental irritants and harmful microbes that cause infections, without stripping off natural oils with harsh chemicals and detergents. The combination of mild plant based surfactants along with the patented LP3 Enzyme System provides a safe and effective way to keep the skin and coat clean and healthy.
