4L Shampoo- Revitalize/ Neem & Sweet Orange
This organic neem dog shampoo with organic orange essential oil is an uplifting blend for dog's that need to maintain healthy skin as well as those those with fleas, red itchy skin, or dermatitis (skin inflammation) caused by allergies, flea bites, or environmental conditions.
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 Organic Aloe Vera (Aloe barbadensis leaf juice) 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), and jojoba (Potassium jojobate) and vegetable glycerine. Some of the aloe juice evaporates off and the glycerine is mixed back in while the potassium hydroxide used to saponify the oils is no longer detectable. The organic sweet orange essential oil (Citrus sinensis), organic neem oil (Azadirachta indica), and organic rosemary extract (Rosmarinus officinalis) are mixed in and blended.
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.
