2 Reasons Why You Want Sulfate Free Dog Shampoo

We like taking a deep dive into ingredients to break down the safety and potential toxicities of products. In this post, we are going to give you just 2 reasons why you want sulfate free dog shampoo and why you want a certified organic dog shampoo. 

  1. Many products that contain sulfates also contain dioxane - a byproduct of the manufacturing process that is known to cause cancer. A recent study found dioxane in 80% of products made for humans and no one has tested products for our dogs. 
  2. Even if the product is not contaminated with dioxane, sulfates are a known skin irritants and cause allergies.

4-Legger certified organic dog shampoo will never contain synthetic sulfates - keeping both you and your dog away from environmental toxins!
