Plant extracts, essential oils, vitamins, and minerals, the list of natural ingredients in pet care products seems endless.
Understanding the purpose of all the different components is not a simple task but doing so will help you choose the optimal care products for your beloved dog, cat, or horse.
If you are up for the challenge, this basic guide is a great place to start.
Minerals are one of the most useful natural materials, they can be found in many fields including construction, industry, agriculture, cooking, medicine, and of course, cosmetics.
From skin cells to brain cells, every cell in our bodies and the bodies of our pets contains minerals.
Since they are so essential for our wellbeing and the wellbeing of our pets it is only natural that personal care products for pets contain them.
But what exactly are minerals? Minerals are substances formed in geological processes and can be found all around us.
For example, sea salts are a type of mineral.
Some minerals are especially known to have medicinal qualities and are used for their soothing effect.
The minerals found in the Dead Sea are globally known for their high medicinal quality. For instance, among other things they reduce stress, help relax sore muscles, soften the skin and the fur, help the skin heal after injuries and help prevent sun damage.
The special quality of these minerals, found solely in the Dead Sea, led us at PetEx to develop a line of pet care products based on these excellent high-quality minerals.
Essential oils are concentrated plant extracts.
Using pet care products with essential oils can stimulate hair growth, fight, and prevent the appearance of pests, reduce stress, balance oil levels on the skin and coat, and much more.
These many advantages make essential oils very popular and products that contain them are considered especially beneficial.
However, it is important to keep in mind that although they are derived from plants, essential oils are extremely potent substances.
This means that great results can be achieved by using them correctly, and misuse might cause irritation.
If your pet has sensitive skin, you should be especially careful with such products.
Lucky, if the product is formulated correctly, even young kittens and pups with highly sensitive skin can enjoy the benefits of essential oils.
Our experts at PetEx use high quality, perfectly balanced formulations to ensure your dog, cat or horse receives all the wonderful benefits of essential oils and none of the potential irritations.
While essential oils are concentrated plant extracts, some plant extracts can be used right away.
Aloe vera, for example, is a succulent full of rich gel known for many years for its moisturizing and calming properties.
It is used mainly for skincare products but in recent years manufacturers of high-end pet care products have started incorporating this amazingly valuable plant into various formulations.
Combing naturally sourced plant extracts with essential oils enables the creation of balanced formulas that are not too strong but rather nurturing.
Is your cat shedding excessively amid winter? Do your dog’s ears get constantly dirty? As we all know, vitamins play a vital role in the health of all living creatures, and our pets are no different.
In many cases, shedding and other skin-deep concerns should be addressed by nutrition, however, the benefits of topical application of vitamins are clear.
Whether you are in need of shampoos (like our Dog & Cat Neutralizing Shampoo), conditioners (like our Oatmeal & Pomegranate Conditioner), detangling sprays, or even ear cleansing liquid, look for products that are enriched with high quality, naturally derived vitamins including vitamin E, vitamin C, and vitamin A.
