Equinade Stockholm Tar 1ltr

Made from 100% pure genuine Swedish pine tar. Since the 1400s, the best tar in the world has come from the dense pine forest in Stockholm, Sweden. Stockholm held a monopoly for selling pine tar and so the premium form of the product became known as “Stockholm Tar”.

Substitute materials are marketed as Stockhom tar, but should not be used as a veterinary product. Whilst black in colour, the substitute is a residue of charcoal production (poly phenolic liquor) which contains hazardous materials and up to 22% water.

Coal tar is also used as a substitute which contains the toxic and hazardous benzopyrene (C2OH12). This is why Equinade uses the natural, premium Stockholm tar and packs it in its purest form. This high-quality pine tar is produced using closed kilns to extract the valuable sap, without toxic bi-products being produced eg; creosote.
