The Helosan original saw the light of day in 1947 when it was originally developed for use on animals – mainly cows. The purpose of the development of the skin ointment was to produce a product that could mainly be used on the cows’ teats / udders. Since then, we have developed the product so that it can be used by everyone.

Helosan® – The gentle ointment for your skin animal

Today, Helosan original is a classic skin ointment that is used as a skin care product for both humans and animals. The skin ointment is used for the treatment and care of dry, sensitive and irritated skin. Helosan moisturizes and softens hard and dry skin while also restoring the skin’s natural balance. This is why you can use Helosan for animals without worries when the skin needs extra moisture.


One of the biggest advantages of the Helosan original is its unique and extremely gentle formula. The ointment thus contains neither perfume nor animal ingredients. This also makes the Helosan original particularly suitable for use in both pets and pets, which for example may have a tendency to wash several times during the day and therefore do not benefit from skin care that contains very harmful substances (especially cats).

If your animals have extra dry skin, you can use Helosan foot ointment, which is very similar to the Helosan original, but which has a higher fat content and because of this also gives a more intense moisture boost to the dry, irritated skin. In addition, Helosan foot ointment contains urea and lactic acid which accelerates the hydration of the skin. The ointment is perfect for taking care of paws that have become dry and cracked.

Helosan skin ointment – suitable for all animals

In addition to the above-mentioned animal groups, there are of course also several other animals. For example, pigs that risk sunburn on the teat skin to the great inconvenience of both the pig and the piglets that are suckling. In addition, it is difficult to get around the fact that cats love to sleep in the hot rays of the sun, but especially in light cats or hairless breeds, this can have major negative consequences in the form of painful tan and dehydrated skin around the ears and muzzle. In addition, many cats move outside most of the day and are often exposed to intermittent weather to great inconvenience to the cat’s paws, as well as the dog’s – risk becoming dry and even cracked without adequate skin care.
