PET SKIN CARE THE NATURAL WAY
We all have pets of all kinds :
Pet skin care is a very broad and can be very confusing ...They have pretty similar ailments like human skin but just in a different spectrum due to their environmental exposure and thickness of the skin and the hygiene factors as well.
We human beings have evolved from being wild creatures to a very hygiene based sophisticated beings it has its advantages of less skin care problems related to mites or ringworms or ticks and fleas but we have the common problem like allergies and eczema etc..
Pets have heightened sense of smell and they have natural tendency to lick their fur or skin and if we use skin care products made with chemicals or fragrance oils or essential oils it can be potentially life threatening to them.
I don't like using any kind of essential oils or concentrated plant extracts for my pet care line of products . And i use only human skin approved ingredients and no toxins or chemicals or colourants are added to the products.
Common skin ailments :
Allergies (Food and Environment)
Tics and Fleas
Mange and Dandruff
Acne/Stress induced Alopecia
And lot of other bacterial or fungal infections which can be aggravated due to the damp and rain .
How can our Pet wonder balm and shampoo bar help?
Our pet shampoo bar is made of natural coconut derived mild surfactants which are gentle on the pets skin and don't cause aggravation of any current skin conditions or inflammation and help to clean the skin thoroughly without stripping its natural oils.
We added NEEM OIL to the bar for the its age old traditional use on pets skin for various conditions. Neem oil can provide relief from assorted conditions and also be used for the skin treatment of pets. It can be the best alternative to medications to repel fleas, ticks, and other parasites as it is not toxic for pets.
This repellent effect is largely attributed to neem’s concentration of chemical compounds called triterpenes.
Triterpenes are a group of compounds found in plant gums and resins – two of the triterpenes in neem oil which repel insects are azadirachtin and nimbin.
Azadirachtin is a powerful natural insecticide, while nimbin has documented anti-inflammatory and antifungal properties.
Neem oil is also an anti-fungal substance making it a highly sought after product especially to heal fungal infections on animals. Neem oil has proven to be really helpful for treating pets including horses during the warm seasons by using it as a preventative measure against swarms of ticks, mites and mosquitoes which like to make life miserable for grazing horses.
In addition, applications of neem oil work to soothe irritations or inflammations caused by insect bites and diseases and is also a moisturizer of dry skin. Recent clinical studies have even shown that neem oil delivers a better curative effect on horses than using cortisone. To sum up, horses can actually make a great profit from neem oil.
Our other star ingredient in the shampoo bar is charcoal powder ,usually vets use charcoal powder for emergencies when a pet has ingested any toxins as charcoal is very powerful tool to bind the toxins and eliminate them in a natural way.
Charcoal has huge benefits when used externally on pets ,it helps to eliminate odours the natural way and gives your pet the clean fresh natural scent rather than masking it with artificial fragrances and harmful essential oils.
When not ingested, activated charcoal works the same. It will adsorb all the nasty stuff off pets coat, leaving it clean and bright. Nasty stuff? Yes, activated charcoal especially attracts carbon-based impurities that may dull the fur.
Activated charcoal works wonders on the pets coat whether is light or dark coloured even no fur pets get the same benefit.
Panthenol; otherwise known as Vitamin B5, and Vitamin E deeply penetrate and moisturizes each coat from the root of the hair resulting in a longer lasting healthier look. It even eliminates the need for a cream rinse in most cases.
Binds to and holds water in the skin, moisturizing and leaving it soft, smooth, and more supple. It also has anti-inflammatory properties and is involved in activating the proliferation of cells that are important for wound healing and restoring the function of the skin barrier.
So our pet shampoo bar which can be used for dogs and cats and horses alike is the best all in one product which is toxin free and natural .
PET WONDER BALM:
The star ingredient in our Pet wonder balm is Andiroba oil ,The highly emollient oil is effective at moisturising dry cracked skin and is used in products intended to heal eczema and psoriasis. Andiroba penetrates the skin quickly, acting as an excellent emollient carrier oil.
- It is a good natural insect repellent. It can protect from tiger mosquitos and other parasites. However, it was shown that it’s not as strong and effective as DEET. It depends if you prefer natural deterrents or not.
- Great antibacterial and antifungal. You can apply Andiroba or Carapa oil on any and all wounds, as long as they’re not still open. Among its most important uses in skin care, we have its ability to soothe both psoriasis and eczema. Thus, you can use Andiroba oil to soothe your eczema flare-ups or improve the aspect of psoriasis.
This Amazonian superfruit wouldn’t be the wonderful ingredient it is without its quantities of all-natural vitamins and minerals. Andiroba oil is also very rich with antioxidants, to help neutralize and remove free radicals from the bloodstream, , photodermatoses, and skin cancers.
The second ingredient we use HEMP SEED OIL this amazing oil works wonders on pet skins by reducing inflammation The rich omega oil soothes the skin and works well for eczema and other broader skin problems pets face due to constant exposure to environmental elements.
Omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids are also beneficial for your dog's skin. Hemp seed oil is an increasingly common ingredient in cosmetics and soaps made for humans. Dog owners might give their pet hemp seed oil to improve their coat quality.
If your pet suffers from skin allergies, it’s important to find a lasting solution. More of the over-the-counter drugs for treating skin allergies also have long term effects on your pet. A 2005 study of humans showed the impact of hemp seed oil in treating skin problems. It reduces inflammation associated with pruritic skin disease, atopic dermatitis, and granulomas. The use of hemp seed for pets skin allergies has increased over the year with pet owners giving positive reviews.
Finally Allantoin or comfrey root extract ,Extracted from the root of the comfrey plant, Allantoin is a non-irritating ingredient that soothes and protects the skin. With the ability to help soothe the skin, it's a great all-rounder for keeping skin at the top of its game.
Allantoin is known for soothing injured skin and healing wounds . It is often used for skin irritation and rashes.
Natural moisture production from Allantoin prevents itchy or flaky skin through its dead skin removal. It’s also helpful that Allantoin is non-toxic, non-allergenic, and odourless with anti-inflammatory, anti-irritant properties.
These magic ingredients when combined with the mighty SHEA BUTTER make this pet wonder balm the best and most effective.
We have not used any Essential oils or Fragrances or any toxins so this pet balm is perfect for cats and dogs and horses alike.
