Your Pet is part of your family, greeting you when you arrive home with excitement and anticipation for your attention. Statistics say that 60% of all households have pets and the #1 choice of pets are dogs, followed by cats.
This is a fantastic segment market for niche products as consumer awareness is at an all time high for the best care products for our pets health.
As a late dog owner, I too am always on the hunt for the best products to bath my dog in as he required multiple baths monthly. The cost of grooming at a salon was cost prohibitive considering how active my dog was, and the products were not really “ natural”.
Researching for pet supplies that were all natural, I was appalled at the ingredients that comprised the lower to higher end cost commercial Dog Shampoos on the market. As an artisan soap formulator, I understand the products and the ingredients that go into the shampoos, lotions and soap.
Using natural products were simply the standard not the exception for our pets and for the majority of pet owners now.
Not only could I lower the carbon paw-print of our earth, but once I understood that our beloved Hank’s skin was thinner than his human owners, I realized that his skin could absorb the toxic chemicals quicker.
Formulating natural skin soap for my clients skin is not any different from our pet’s products, except we differ in our skin pH levels.
Our Natural Pet Shampoo is a glycerin based soap, clear with the color of oil, no colorant and only natural scents. This is about the most natural line we could find, our own as we are meticulous about our processing and ingredients.
Our pets skin requires a highly moisturizing base of all natural oils to cleanse and treat the follicles with an oil lifting shampoo removing the settled dirt and re introducing a moisturizing soap to soften the dermis from any dry scaling skin. The direct result is less itching and a softer silky fur coat for our pets.
Using essential oils in the ingredients is a benefit as it not only offers a natural and longer lasting scent, is aromatherapy for our pets giving a calming sensation but it repels fleas and ticks.
This is a win-win soap for our pets and for out environment. Commercial dog shampoos can itch and dry out our pet’s skin. It is hard to see the skin due to a thick layer of fur.
The epidermis is the outer layer of skin, this is a tough thick skin on the paw pads, hairless and comes in contact with the ground.
The Dermis lies under the epidermis. This contains the hair follicles and pigment cells, where our pets coloring comes from. This is where the oil is secreted from as well. Some pets over secrete while others, generally older dogs slow down on oil secretion causing dry itchy skin. Removing the dead cells and re-introducing moisture to the skin is a healing and soothing experience for your pet.
The fur is a protective layer covering the skin on our pets. Follicles product hair in response to their hormone cycles.
Dog shampoo and bathing
Shampoo should be balanced for canine skincare. With a pH balance off, this can cause allergic reactions, dryness and rough skin. The best pH is one closest to a pH of 7.0
The fastest way to bring your pet’s skin into balance is to use Apple Cider Vinegar.
Summer bathing is great outside with a hose and a plastic kiddie pool, winter is best indoors in a tub with a finishing rubdown using towels, never a blow dryer
Terra Stone Organics Natural Pet Shampoo
Our shampoo does not offer toxic chemicals such as petroleum bases or Sodium Lauryl sulfate (SLS) which is added to create bubbles. We use castor oil, honey and coconut oil to create our lather.
SLS is linked to diarrhea and skin irritation in our pets. So why use it and convince ourselves that cheaper is better? If it is a colored pink or blue shampoo, to be sure if offers synthetic colorants and fragrances. Our products are 100% organic and all natural. Our pets will not be exposed to toxic chemicals absorbing into their skin using Terra Stone Organics Natural Pet Shampoo.
The shine and health of our pet’s fur is evident in the final washed product, the fur.
