Vitamin E is important to your dog's body to help protect the skin and other cells from free radicals and fight off infection. Vitamin E has also been shown to boost cell growth.
A component of Vitamin E, called Tocopherol, is one of the few ingredients that can be used in certified organic formulations to serve as a preservative - antioxidant.
Antioxidants reduce the rate of oxidation in natural products - meaning it reduces the chances of your product going bad (rancid).
Tocopherol is used as an antioxidant in creams, lotions, baby products, cosmetics and more. It is obtained by vacuum distillation of vegetable fats derived from non-GMO soybean sources.
It is of vital importance that a high grade extraction and cleaning of the final solution be done as inferior ingredients can be contaminated with hydroquinone - and can pose health concerns.
No worries - we use a very high grade Tocopherol that is safe and non-toxic and we only use Tocopherol in formulations where an additional preservative is absolutely necessary.
Cedrus atlantica (cedarwood) is known for its scent and its ability to repel fleas.
It is very good for your dog's skin and coat as a natural conditioner and beneficial for dogs with dermatitis of all types.
We use it in our certified organic dog shampoo for its safety. It is non-toxic, non-irritating, and non-sensitizing.
