This shampoo provides soothing relief for for dry and itchy skin, irritated skin, dandruff, rashes, and dermatitis.
How It's Made: Organic Coconut oil (Cocos nucifera), Organic Shea Butter (Butyrospermum parkii), Organic Olive Oil (Olea europaea), Organic Sunflower Oil (Helianthus annuus) and Organic Jojoba Oil (Simmondsia chinensis) is mixed with Decolorized Organic Aloe Juice (Aloe barbadensis) and potassium hydroxide under heat in a large kettle. The result of that reaction is Saponified oils of coconut (Potassium cocoate), shea butter (Potassium Shea Butterate), olive (Potassium olivate), sunflower (Potassium sunflowerate), jojoba (Potassium jojobate) and vegetable glycerine. Some of the organic aloe juice evaporates off and the glycerine is mixed back in while the potassium hydroxide used to saponify the oils is no longer detectable. Organic Lemongrass Essential Oil (Cymbopogon schoenanthus), Organic Rosemary Essential Oil (Rosmarinus officinalis), Organic Hemp seed oil (Cannabis sativa) and Organic Rosemary Extract (Rosmarinus officinalis) are added and mixed.
A few tips if you are new to organic dog shampoo:
- Your dog will likely go through a perfectly normal transition period. Don't worry - we've documented what you can expect - click here to read!
- To increase the lather, use more water - not shampoo.
- Consider using a foamer bottle. Fill only ¾ of the bottle with shampoo. It will help you manage the thin consistency by infusing air into the shampoo, as well as keep you from using more than is needed to wash your dog.
