Healing Balm for Dry or Damaged Skin That Just Works!

Just like humans, dogs and cats can suffer from various skin issues that cause discomfort.

Dry or damaged skin is a common problem among dogs, often resulting from environmental factors, allergies, underlying health conditions, or accidents (like our friend Murphy who we will talk about more in a minute).

To alleviate their discomfort and promote a speedy recovery, 4-Legger's Healing Balm, specially formulated with Organic Hemp Oil, Organic Shea Butter, Organic Calendula, and other organic ingredients can quickly re-moisturize and restore healthy skin.

In this blog post, we'll explore the benefits of using a healing balm for dogs and cats and how it can quickly restore their skin to its optimal condition.

Understanding the Ingredients In Healing Balm:

A healing balm for dogs is a specialized product designed to provide relief and nourishment to dry or damaged skin.

While many products on the market use petroleum based ingredients, 4-Legger's healing balm is made with organic ingredients having natural healing properties. 

  • Organic Hemp Oil: Possesses remarkable healing abilities due to its rich composition of essential fatty acids, vitamins, and antioxidants. It promotes skin regeneration, reduces inflammation, soothes irritation, and moisturizes dry or damaged skin. Its natural properties make it an effective remedy for various skin conditions, allowing for rapid healing and improved skin health
  • Organic Shea Butter: Renowned for its exceptional healing properties. Shea butter has a high concentration of vitamins A and E, essential fatty acids, and antioxidants makes it an excellent moisturizer that deeply nourishes and restores the skin. It helps soothe and heal dry, cracked, or damaged skin, reduces inflammation, and promotes collagen production, leaving the skin rejuvenated, supple, and visibly healthier. Additionally, shea butter's natural emollient properties make it an effective solution for soothing and alleviating discomfort associated with skin conditions such as eczema and dermatitis.
  • Organic Carnauba Wax: Acts as a protective barrier for the skin, shielding it from environmental pollutants and harsh weather conditions like snow, ice, and sun. Despite its protective qualities, this natural wax allows the skin to breathe by forming a permeable layer that doesn't clog the pores. It maintains the skins moisture balance while allowing for the exchange of oxygen for optimal skin health while preventing smothering of the skin barrier or related discomfort.
  • Natural Vitamin E (Tocopherol): Possesses exceptional healing and antioxidant properties. As a potent antioxidant, it helps protect the skin from damage caused by free radicals, which can lead to premature aging and other skin concerns. Tocopherol also supports skin healing by reducing inflammation, promoting cell regeneration, and enhancing the skin's natural barrier function. Its moisturizing properties further contribute to the overall health and vitality of the skin, making it a valuable ingredient for promoting skin rejuvenation and maintaining a healthy appearance.
  • Organic Rosemary Extract: Contains potent antioxidants that protect the skin from free radicals, which can cause damage and premature aging. Its anti-inflammatory properties help soothe and calm irritated skin, reducing redness and inflammation. Additionally, rosemary extract has antimicrobial properties that can aid in preventing infections and promoting overall skin health, making it a valuable ingredient for supporting the healing process of various skin conditions.
  • Organic Calendula Extract: Calendula has impressive healing benefits for the skin. It possesses anti-inflammatory properties that soothe irritated skin, reduce redness, and promote healing. Calendula also exhibits antimicrobial properties, aiding in preventing infections and supporting overall skin health. Its gentle nature makes it suitable for sensitive or damaged skin, making it an effective ingredient for promoting the healing of wounds, rashes, and other skin irritations. 
  • Organic St. John's Wort Extract: Traditionally used for its healing properties. It is known for its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial effects, which can help soothe and heal various skin conditions, including burns, wounds, and inflammation. St. John's Wort also contains compounds that may assist in relieving pain and promoting tissue regeneration, making it a valuable ingredient for supporting the healing process of skin ailments.

Murphy Loves 4-Legger Healing Balm

We can talk and talk about the benefits of the ingredients, but nothing beats testimonials from real customers! 

Meet Murphy. 

Murphy was a homeless guy before his AMAZING parents adopted him. He still loves to go after squirrels and sometimes.... squirrel chasing results in an injury like the one you see here.

His Mom was quick to apply 4-Legger Healing Balm and then she took pictures every day for 6 days so we could see how quickly it healed it!

We aren't surprised. It is amazing stuff! 

Be careful chasing those squirrels, Murphy!  (Note: he still does!)

Benefits of Using 4-Legger Healing Balm:

  1. Moisturizes and hydrates: Dry skin is not only uncomfortable for dogs but also prone to cracking and itching. Our healing balm deeply moisturizes the skin, replenishing lost moisture and promotes hydration while providing a protective coat without clogging the skin pores. This helps to restore the skin's natural barrier function and enhances its overall skin health.

  2. Soothes irritation: Dogs with dry or damaged skin often experience redness, itchiness, and inflammation. Our healing balm contains ingredients with anti-inflammatory properties that provide immediate relief from discomfort. It soothes the irritated skin, reducing itching and calming any inflammation present.

  3. Accelerates healing: The active ingredients in 4-Legger's healing balm work together to promote faster healing.

  4. Protects against further damage: Our healing balm has organic Carnauba wax which forms a protective barrier over the affected area, shielding it from environmental factors that can worsen the condition while allowing the skin pores to breathe. 

  5. Safe & Non-Toxic: It is common when you apply a balm to your dog's skin or paws for them to want to lick it. Our balm is completely safe and non-toxic.

  6. Natural Sun Protection: The natural ingredients in 4-Legger provides natural protection from the sun with an SPF of 15!

Application and Usage Tips:

  1. Clean the affected area: Before applying the healing balm, gently clean the area with 4-Legger organic dog shampoo to remove any dirt or debris.

  2. Apply a thin layer: Using clean hands, apply a thin layer of the healing salve directly to the affected area. Massage it gently to ensure even distribution and absorption.

  3. Frequency: Apply the dog moisturizing balm as often as needed but typically up to two to three times a day.

  4. Pro Tip: Give your dog a treat after application to distract them from licking the area.

Proper Storage:  Our Nose and Paw Balm will be susceptible to heat with regard to melting so we recommend that it be stored in a cool, dry place - preferably in the refrigerator.  This is particularly true if you live in a hot climate so take care to protect the balm from excessive heat.

4-Legger Nose and Paw Balm acts as a healing ointment for dogs and can be a game-changer when it comes to promoting rapid healing of dry or damaged skin in dogs.

By moisturizing, soothing, and protecting the affected area, it helps your furry family member find relief from discomfort and restores their skin to its optimal condition.
