The Benefits of Using a Organic Saponified Coconut Oil Dog Shampoo

Organic saponified coconut oil is the first ingredient in 4-Legger's all natural dog shampoo.

Here are some of the key benefits of organic saponified coconut oil and why we use it in our organic dog shampoo:

  1. Gentle Cleansing: When coconut oil undergoes saponification, it transforms into a gentle and effective cleanser.

    We've compared saponified oils and we think ours is far superior. We fully saponify the oil to make it safer and less oily. 

    The result is a coconut oil dog shampoo that cleans the skin without stripping away its natural oils, leaving it feeling clean, refreshed, and moisturized.

  2. Moisturizing and Nourishing: Coconut oil is renowned for its excellent moisturizing properties. It contains medium-chain fatty acids, including lauric acid, which helps to replenish the skin's natural moisture barrier, keeping it soft, supple, and well-nourished.

  3. Antimicrobial and Antifungal Properties: Coconut oil contains natural antimicrobial and antifungal compounds such as lauric acid, capric acid, and caprylic acid. When saponified, these properties are retained, making saponified coconut oil an effective natural ingredient for combating bacteria, viruses, and fungi.

  4. Skin Soothing and Calming: Saponified organic coconut oil has soothing and calming properties, making it suitable for sensitive or irritated skin. It can help reduce redness, inflammation, and itching, making it an effective shampoo for dogs with irritated skin.

  5. Natural and Organic: 4-Legger's organic coconut oil is USDA Certified Organic.

    Because our shampoo is certified organic to food standards, every ingredient is carefully tracked throughout its lifecycle.

    You can have 100% confidence that the soil has not been treated with pesticides or herbicides, it is non-GMO, not adulterated, are safe and non-toxic for the environment. It is free from synthetic fragrances, preservatives or other potentially harmful chemicals found in other dog shampoo.

  6. Non-Toxic: Saponified organic coconut oil has an Environmental Working Group (EWG) rating of a 1. It has no links to cancer or toxicity. It has a very low probability of allergies or immunotoxicity.

  7. Sustainable and Ethical: 4-Legger's organic coconut oil is sourced from sustainable and ethically responsible practices, ensuring that it is produced without harming the environment or exploiting workers. Our organic coconut oil supports sustainable agriculture and responsible sourcing.

  8. Better and Safer than Synthetic Dog Shampoo That Uses Coconut Oil: Using fully saponified coconut oil is much safer and more natural. 

    Many dog shampoos will advertise they have ingredients that are “derived from coconut oil” but those ingredients are processed through so many chemical reactions to get the ingredient used, it doesn't even resemble coconut oil by the time it is used to manufacture your dog's shampoo. 

    Even worse, the coconut oil is processed using toxic chemicals that leave contaminants that are then put into the dog shampoo where it poses significant health risk to your dog.
