Nettex Equine Wins Best Value Fly Cream

Nettex Equine Wins Best Value Fly Cream

June 2022

Nettex Equine Summer Fly Cream has been awarded the Horse and Rider 2022 Best Value Fly Creams and Gels award. Taking the top spot against competitor products, Nettex Summer Fly Cream was recognised for being effective, easy to apply, and excellent value for money – a true bonus with today’s current living costs.

The winning product was rigorously put through its paces throughout the summer months last year and is awarded for its protection against flies and midges. The cream’s long-lasting effects are due to its DEET based formula, which is well known for its efficacy. Although twice daily application is recommended, some testers found that once a day use still offered great results, making the tub last longer.

Product manager at Nettex Equine, Ellie Cashmore, says “Winning the Best Value award is very special, we know that life is expensive at the moment, so having products which offer great value to horse owners is important to us. We are very proud of this product, a firm favourite in the range, and we’re thrilled it has gained this recognition alongside other highly rated products in the range.”

The Summer Fly Cream is praised for its moisturising effects which is particularly useful for horses who are prone to dry skin. It includes lanolin and glycerine which soften the skin and condition the hair. It is also commended for its consistency – being thick enough that it doesn’t drip and only a small amount needed for thorough coverage.

Fly creams are ideal for use on areas which are hard to cover with fly-sprays such as the muzzle, around the eyes and ears and under the belly, which are also areas heavily targeted by flies.

Nettex Equine is encouraging horse owners to use a fly cream as part of their fly management strategy.
