A natural insect-repelling dog shampoo bar, designed to ward off unwanted “little friends”, this has rapidly won itself a large and loyal following and is one of our best-selling products. We’re told it’s also very effective at neutralising any nasty smells your dog may have rolled in, like fox or badger poo.
We make this in the same traditional way as we make our lovely soaps, but we use even more coconut oil, so the lather is really rich and creamy with a dense foam of tiny bubbles; and it lathers really easily, so you don’t need to keep rubbing to produce a rich lather. We’ve added a blend of insect-repelling oils, including a dash of peppermint which actually kills fleas and ticks by attacking their nervous system. We also use Neem oil, a natural healing and soothing oil which is valued as an insect repellent. Finally, we’ve added vitamin E and Shea Butter for a shiny coat and healthy skin, and Aloe Vera to soothe delicate skin.
Key Ingredients in our Insect Repelling Dog Shampoo;
Neem Oil; Valued on the Indian subcontinent as an effective insect repellant.
Peppermint essential oil; An insect repellant essential oil which contains a compound that attacks a flea’s nervous system.
Insect repelling essential oils; Citronella, tea tree, eucalyptus, and cedarwood, which have been used historically to ward off insects.
Aloe Vera; Cooling and soothing.
Shea Butter and Vitamin E; To condition the skin and coat.
How to use the dog shampoo; Use as a spot shampoo, or as an all over solid shampoo bar. Dampen the fur, and use as you would a soap bar. After use, rinse your dog’s fur well. Avoid the eyes- if product gets into eyes, rinse with plenty of clean water. External use only.
NOTE; In case of allergic reaction, we advise carrying out a spot test on your dog before using all over. As this dog shampoo bar contains essential oils, we don’t recommend it for young puppies, nursing & expectant bitches; instead, use our Pure & Gentle Dog Shampoo.
