Barrier Animal Healthcare (formally Barrier Hygiene) has been inventing and manufacturing equine and agricultural healthcare products since the 80's and was the first company to specialise in a range of natural products for animal use. The products are entirely natural, non-toxic and are all plant derived from sustainable resources.
The primary emphasis was on making products that work, are kind to the animal, the user and to the environment, and so the founders spent years of dabbling' in alternative solutions to chemicals. In the early days, our expertise was in fly repellents and we designed the very first non-toxic Natural Fly Repellent, which became an instant success.
We believe that the reason for our success is because we continue to research and explore exciting new and unique natural ingredients to include in our range. It is generally known that natural active ingredients deteriorate quickly once exposed to UV rays and air, but Barrier Animal Healthcare have perfected the art of blending many ingredients together to give a much longer life, improved quality and effectiveness to every product.
Adverse publicity on pesticides that contain organo-phosphates and other harsh and toxic chemicals has resulted in a demand for kinder products. We do not include organic acids, natural pyrethrum or permethrins in any of our product ranges. So yes, there are other ways of managing the ectoparasite infestation, which are safer, very effective and available to farmers right now.
Developed for use in intensive farming systems, but also suitable for use in organic farming systems, as it falls into the exempt category of products which use only plant oils as active ingredients, as listed in Annexe IIB (Pesticides) of Council Regulation (EEC) No 2092/91 (as amended).
