Can I Use my dog's shampoo on myself

Can Dog Shampoo Be Used On Humans?

We get this question a lot: "The ingredients in our dog shampoo are better than the ingredients in my own products. Can I use my dog's shampoo on myself?"

The short answer is, yes! In fact, 4-Legger natural dog shampoo is the ONLY shampoo in my house. It is at every sink for hand washing and it is in the shower for human and 4-Legger body washing!

One of our male customers uses 4-Legger when he shaves. He said he used to get razor burn but since he started using 4-Legger his face has been soft and smooth! 

Understanding 4-Legger Natural Dog Shampoo

4-Legger natural dog shampoo is a popular choice among pet parents who prioritize natural and organic products.

Our shampoo is known for its organic ingredients, free from synthetic chemicals, detergents, and artificial fragrances. It's designed to be gentle on your pet's skin and coat, making it the preferred option for pet parents who care about ingredients.

Can Humans Use 4-Legger Natural Dog Shampoo?

The idea of using dog shampoo on humans might seem unconventional, but it's not entirely unfounded. Here are some key considerations:

  • Ingredients: One of the main reasons pet parents choose 4-Legger natural dog shampoo is because of its clean ingredient list. The lack of harsh chemicals and the presence of organic ingredients can make it appealing for human use as well. Ingredients like aloe vera, coconut oil, and essential oils are safe and non-toxic on dogs, cats, and their humans!  4-Legger rejects any type of synthetic chemicals, artificial fragrances, and colors, which appeals to people looking for healthier and more environmentally friendly options.
  • Gentle on Skin: 4-Legger shampoos are formulated to be gentle on the skin, making them suitable for people with sensitive skin or allergies. The use of natural oils and ingredients helps to nourish and moisturize the skin.
  • Eco-Friendly: 4-Legger is committed to sustainability and environmental responsibility. We use biodegradable ingredients and recyclable packaging, which attracts environmentally conscious consumers.
  • Cruelty-Free: 4-Legger is certified cruelty-free by Leaping Bunny, ensuring that no animal testing is involved in the production of our products.
  • Variety: 4-Legger offers a wide range of scents and formulations, catering to different preferences and skin types. This variety allows customers to find a product that suits their specific needs and preferences.
  • Reputation and Reviews: Positive reviews and a strong reputation for quality and effectiveness contribute to consumer trust and loyalty. Many people choose 4-Legger based on recommendations and the brand's established reputation for producing high-quality, natural products. Many holistic veterinarians also use and recommend 4-Legger in their practice.  

    Comparing to Other Shampoos

    When considering whether other dog shampoos can be used on humans, it's important to take a similar approach. Not all dog shampoos are created equal, and many may contain ingredients that you don't want on your skin. Most importantly, check the ingredients. The same ingredients that cause allergies, skin dermatitis, organ system toxicity, hormone disruption and cancer are in both human and dog shampoos!  For that reason, take advantage of the Pet Shampoo Ingredient Database to quickly research common ingredients for safety and quality.

    Bottom Line

    4-Legger Natural Dog Shampoo, with its gentle, organic formulations is very likely to be a safer option for human use compared to conventional human soaps and shampoos.  I vividly remember the moment in the shower one day when 4-Legger was less than a year old and I was still in cancer treatment and the thought crossed my mind that my dog’s shampoo was safer and healthier than the human stuff I was using!  Talk about an epiphany!  Lots of shampoo and soap landed in the garbage that day!

    You can feel good using 4-Legger products on your self and your dog! We do!
