Is it a good dog shampoo for sensitive skin?
Our Delicate Dog Shampoo is incredibly effective for dogs with sensitive or itchy skin.
How so, you may ask?
One of its main components is chlorhexidine gluconate. It is an antibacterial ingredient used in the treatment of fungal skin diseases and bacterial skin diseases (dermatitis, pyoderma), particularly effective for staph infections (infections caused by staphylococcus bacteria - the most common commensal organism in dogs and cats and the most common isolate from canine superficial pyoderma).
We're also big on natural ingredients.
Our shampoo contains cocos nucifera (coconut) oil, a plant-derived fatty acid oil extracted from coconuts' rich white lining (or meat). It's an ingredient that gives a dog's fur instant shine, keeps it tangle-free, and improves hair's tensile strength. It also delivers immediate nourishment for softer, silkier, and smoother fur.
Another natural ingredient we use is Butyrospermum parkii (shea) butter, the creamy fat extracted from the nut of the African Butyrospermum parkii tree. Shea butter is fabulous for locking your dog's fur moisture. It protects fur against heat and UV damage while softening hard, brittle hair and soothing your pet's irritated scalp.
Other ingredients in our formula include panthenol, which penetrates readily into the fur with great moisturising and softening properties - this is what helps your pup's coat sparkle and shine like a rockstar.
Specifically, our Delicate Dog Shampoo contains allantoin, a skin protectant that soothes skin and relieves symptoms of dryness, improves the moisture retention of your dog's skin, and is an all-around effective anti-irritant.
Also, our Delicate Dog Shampoo is paraben-free and soap-free, making it the best shampoo for dogs with skin allergies, with its mild and gentle properties.
If you're looking for a medical-grade shampoo great for routine shampooing on dogs of all ages, then the Delicate Dog Shampoo is the right shampoo for you.
Apply an adequate amount of product to your palm and rub it into a soft lather. Spread and massage thoroughly. Wash entirely and gently with water.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Can dogs use human shampoo?
You might want to use that bottle of Dove on your fur-kid. But let us tell you that might not be the wisest choice. Human shampoo on dogs disrupts what is called the acid mantle. The effect is that your pup becomes vulnerable to parasites, viruses, and bacteria. Yikes. And they feel pretty uncomfortable, too, scratching themselves constantly because their skin is dry and flaky. In turn, it becomes even more accessible for more bacteria to infect them. Some essential oils also contain plant compounds that can make your pet sick. So, stick with a proper dog shampoo, folks.
Is baby shampoo okay to use on dogs?
Well, it is a safer choice for your fur-kid as the baby shampoos are usually gentler and made for delicate skin. There's also the absence of harsh chemicals. But baby shampoos still disrupt the PH balance of your dog's skin. Not to mention, they contain cleansing surfactants that make these shampoos relatively ineffective for removing oils and grease when it comes to canines.
Which is the best soap or shampoo for dogs?
Anything that says non-soap is a safe bet. These shampoos typically have the "for sensitive skin" label. For this purpose, we manufactured our Delicate Dog Shampoo as an antibacterial dog shampoo with medicated properties like chlorhexidine gluconate.
