New minty fresh addition to disinfectant brand’s teat dip range

Following requests from customers, Evans Vanodine has launched a new teat dip, spray, and foam, Masomint, which is formulated with a mint fragrance.

Dairy cattle

Evans Vanodine recognises that teat skin is a vulnerable part of the dairy cow, so with its soothing and calming effect, mint can help with good udder health. To further improve teat condition, which is essential to minimise bacteria growth, the addition of high levels of glycerol to smooth and soften the skin are an important part of the formulation.


Masomint has excellent bactericidal action due to the presence of chlorhexidine gluconate and lactic acid, the company says. It passes EN 1656, killing 99.999% of mastitis causing bacteria which helps to maintain good udder health and productivity. This is a crucial element in any teat disinfectant and conditioner. It also passes EN 1657, which means that it is proven to kill 99.99% of yeasts, Evans added.


The company says it knows farmers find it helpful to be able to see easily which cows have been effectively dipped or sprayed during the post-milking process. Masomint has been formulated with a highly visible dark blue colour, so it is easy to see when applied to the cows’ teats. The product is also suitable for use in robotic milking plants.

Masomint was recently launched at Dairy Tech and animal health & agriculture sales manager, Nick Evans, talked to Dairy Tech TV to explain Evans’ strategy of working with dairy farmers to protect their livestock from disease and mastitis causing bacteria.
