Have you ever thought as to why we as human use natural products on our body? To protect our skin and improve our overall health, right? The same goes for our furry friends!
Your pets skin and coat are just as important.
Does more than just Clean!
Unlike most chemical based shampoos that contain synthetic fragrances, natural pet shampoos usually contain ingredients that benefit the skin in some way. For example, coconut oil and manuka honey are common ingredients found within natural shampoos, which not only soothe and soften their skin and coat, but actually contain antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties that protect and heal against any irritations or rashes on the skin, which are often hidden by a thick coat!
Maintains the correct pH level.
Did you know that a dog’s pH is 7.5 compared to a humans’ 5.5? What does this mean? This means that humans’ skin is much more acidic compared to your pets’ neutral skin. By simply using your own shampoo or one that doesn’t claim it has the right pH level can actually damage the thin skin layers on a dog, leading to irritation, itching, sores or infections.
All in all, choosing a natural pet shampoo has a lot of great benefits to your pet’s overall health that will keep them away from a series of health issues, especially in the long term. Make sure to read the labels and research thoroughly to ensure your pet will stay healthy and happy!
