Your Dog's Shampoo May Be Causing Their Dry and Itchy Skin

You've switched to high quality dog food and treats but still your furry family member is itching and scratching. 

Did you know traditional dog shampoo contains ingredients that CAUSE allergies and dry, itchy skin?

The most common cleaning agents in traditional dog shampoo are Cocamidopropyl betaine, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate or Sodium Laureth Sulfate - all of which have links to allergies, dry and itchy skin.

These same ingredients have two other things in common - they have been commonly found to contain impurities from the manufacturing process that have links to hormone disruption and cancer and they are not biodegradable or safe for the environment. 

If you are concerned about itchy skin, here are just some of the ingredients and descriptions you don't want in your dog's shampoo: 

  • Sodium Lauryl Sulfate
  • Sodium Laureth Sulfate
  • Ammonium Lauryl Sulfate
  • Ammonium Laureth Sulfate
  • Sodium Coco Sulfate
  • TEA Lauryl Sulfate
  • MEA Lauryl Sulfate
  • Cocamidopropyl betaine
  • Natural cleaners
  • Coconut based cleaners
  • Naturally derived from coconuts
  • Vegetable based cleaners
  • Coconut based surfactants
