In recent years pet owners find themselves facing a new problem, finding the right pet care products for their pets.
To clear up the confusion and to help you find the best care for your companions, we will explain what to consider when shopping for pet care products and unfold the many benefits of natural ingredients in pet care.
Why do so many people try to avoid chemicals?
The modern age brought us many benefits and made our lives easier.
Unfortunately, alongside these benefits, we often see extremely disturbing images, piles of garbage filling the ocean, clouds of pollution in the air, and chemical spills killing helpless animals.
Naturally, these images trigger a backlash, especially among those who cherish nature and animals.
One of the first targets of this backlash are detergents, which contain all sorts of harsh chemicals. Many animal lovers reduce the use of detergents on their pets or avoid washing their pets altogether.
Such habits are extremely problematic. It is important to remember that cleaning your pet on a regular basis is important, as hygiene and cleanliness are the foundation of modern medicine, for humans and animals alike.
In low sanitary conditions, diseases and illness can flourish.
The effects harsh chemicals have on fur
For most of us, one of the most noticeable things about animals is their fur.
We use it to distinguish between our pets and even name them.
Just think of all the white dogs named snow you encountered, and the black horses named shadow, for us fur is a visual aid, a spectacle.
For animals, on the other hand, fur is everything.
It is a shield from the hot scalding sun, the cold wind, and rain, the pests flying around or lurking in the greenery.
For animals, fur is essential to maintain good health.
Therefore, if you want to properly take care of your pet, keeping their fur in good condition is extremely important.
Although this might sound simple enough, many types of pet shampoos and conditioners can cause skin irritations and even damage the fur, exposing your pet to unnecessary discomfort and misery.
So how can you keep your pet clean without damaging the skin and fur?
The ultimate solution – natural pet products
As we explained, on the one hand, cleaning your pet’s fur is extremely important but on the other hand, using a pet shampoo and conditioner with harsh chemicals can damage them. How can we escape this catch 22?
The good news is that by using natural pet care products pet owners can properly clean their pets and maintain & nourish their pet’s fur, all while protecting our limited natural resources.
Using a shampoo and conditioner made of natural ingredients cleanses the fur and skin thoroughly without stripping away the protective layer of natural oil that coats the skin and the hair strands.
When the protective oil layer is intact, the risk of irritation or hair loss due to over-cleansing is minimal.
Additionally, since natural ingredients create less pollution, they are better for the environment.
This is especially true for plant-based products manufactured from organic produce since produce is grown with organic methods does not require pesticides and fertilizers, industrially produced chemicals that can cause a great deal of damage.
Choosing the best pet care products
Need to buy dog shampoo for a dog that has fleas ticks or mites? Does your cat’s coat tend to matt or pelt? Maybe your horse’s snow-like coat has a yellowish tint? In addition to being gentle eco-friendly cleansers, natural organic products can help solve many types of concerns. Here are some prominent examples:
Fleas, ticks, and mites
Like animals, plants are also susceptible to pests, but unlike animals that can scratch and move, plants had to develop alternative coping strategies.
This means that by natural sourcing pest replants from plants, there is no need to use harsh synthetic chemicals.
To fight pests, look for a shampoo and conditioner that contains such substances and soothing ingredients such as aloe vera extract and minerals.
For example, our Flea & tick shampoo contains a blend of powerful essential oils such as tea tree and peppermint, alongside soothing minerals from the dead sea.
Tangles matting and pelting
Dogs, cats, and horses with long flowing fur are especially beautiful and cuddly, but this wonderful trait comes with a price tag as regular grooming sessions are required, or else the hair strands can tangle, become a matt, and eventually become a stiff pelt.
Once the fur reaches this state there is no turning back and it must be trimmed.
Using specialized natural pet care products full of minerals, soothing oils and vitamins can prevent such problems. For instance, our long-haired shampoo containers minerals from the dead sea, carrot oil, and vitamin E that will protect and maintain long healthy fur.
In some cases, a bad odor from a pet might indicate that there is a health problem, and paying a visit to the vet is the best thing to do, but more often than not, your pet picked up a foul smell and needs to be properly cleaned.
While artificial scents are very potent, a natural fragrance for pets has multiple advantages. For once, the essential oils used to add fragrance are less likely to irritate the skin.
In addition, essential oils come with a wide array of other benefits, they promote hair growth, preserve the product, prevent excessive shedding, and more.
High-quality natural pet care products can contribute greatly to the well-being of your beloved pet.
Be sure to choose products that were formulated by experts to meet your pets’ specific needs. Once you start using such products, both you and your furry friend will enjoy the results.
