Why we choose natural ingredients for our pet products

Why natural ingredients?

Just as you wouldn't use harsh chemicals on a newborn baby, you should also avoid pet care products based on chemicals. Did you know that the grooming products you apply to your pet's fur and paws can also be absorbed into their bloodstream through their skin and breathed into their lungs? See below how important it is to choose the right ingredients in grooming products to make your pet feel good and live a long and healthy life.


1. Sodium lauryl sulfate

These are often used in regular human and pet shampoos as surfactants creating a rich lather that many people associate with effectiveness. However, these ingredients are harsh on the skin and fur and are thought to be absorbed into the internal organs where they tend to stay for up to a week.

2. Strong Artificial fragrances & phthalates

These are often petroleum-based and are used because they are cheap and plentiful. Phthalates are known to be endocrine disruptors.

3. Artificial colors

These dyes are made from cheap ingredients that can be made from coal tar and can contain heavy metal salts such as arsenic and lead. They can also irritate and make the dog inflamed and cause allergies and pimples, including hot spots.

4. Parabens

Parabens penetrate the skin and cause some cancers, tumors and reproductive problems. Parabens are also bad for the environment.

5. Mineral oils Mineral oil is petroleum-based and can clog pores and inhibit the skin's breathing. It also interferes with your pet's skin's ability to produce its natural oils.

What are the main benefits that your beloved fur baby will experience after using natural pet care products?

• Fewer allergies and side effects

• Better immune system

• Healthier skin and coat

• Longer lifespan

• Faster healing

• Reduced risk of skin irritation

And we cannot forget the positive environmental impact that natural products use for our seas, rivers and land. Not to mention, your fur babies interact with your children and avoid the toxins that are close to your family.


Here are some wonderful natural options from herbs and plants to help you care for your pet safely and keep them healthy naturally.
• Coconut oil: Improves the skin and cares for skin conditions such as eczema, flea allergies, and itchy skin.

• Green tea extract: Has a relevant chemo-preventive effect against cancer

• Chamomile: Helps soothe inflamed and irritated skin

• Oatmeal: Softens and cleans your pet's hair and skin. Because oatmeal helps relieve itching, soothe irritation, minimize inflammation, and moisturize the skin, it is the best ingredient in dog & cat shampoo.

• Honey: Has antifungal, antiviral and antibacterial properties that help speed healing and make the coat soft and shiny.

• Aloe Vera: Soothes irritated skin, calms inflammation and cleans the skin.

• Vitamin E: Helps with skin problems such as allergic skin disease, dry skin, itchy skin, ear problems, and irritation from skin mites.

• Jojoba oil: Improves the skin barrier. It has antimicrobial properties that help prevent bacteria from taking over your pet's skin.
