Many Pets can become itchy due to a variety irritants on their skin. Dr Zoo Shampoo combines non-irritating natural cleansers with colloidal rice bran to calm the skin. We then add a mix of ingredients to balance the micro-flora and natural esters for a shiny coat. Perfect. Have you ever noticed most websites only display their nicest sounding ingredients? Dr Zoo is proud of all our ingredients and lists them all both on our website and on our label so owners can do their own research.
Suitable for most pets not just dogs.
All of Our Ingredients....
|Ingredient||Why We Chose It.|
|Glucose Derived Cleansers: Decyl Glucoside, Coco Glucoside and Lauryl Glucoside||Glucose derived cleansers and the mildest cleansers and the most edible. In fact, they have about the same irritation score as water. Using three different types instead of just one is a way to make the overall formulation even milder.|
|Coconut Derived Cleansers: Coco Betaine, Sodium Cocoyl Sarcosinate and Sodium Lauroamphoacetate.||Although Glucose based cleansers are amazingly mild, they are not as good at cleaning deep in the roots. Coconut based cleansers are also mild but better at cleaning down there. Again by using three instead of one, the mildness on the skin is increased.|
|Colloidal Rice Bran.|| Well known skin calming ingredient for pets. For more information on irritable skin in pets, this summary from the 81st Western Veterinary Conference gives a good summary of techniques available. Link here (Page 3)
|Aloe Vera||A skin calming ingredient.|
|Glyceryl Oleate||A glycerin based ester which is edible and helps condition the skin and the hair.|
|Coco-Caprylate||An organic coconut based hair conditioner to help product the white, shiney coat.|
|Allantoin||Most people are familiar with the healing properties of Comfrey Root. Scientists identified the key compound responsible for this as Allantoin. It is now possible to buy purified Allantoin to help with skin recovery.|
|Piroctone Olamine.||Helps keep the shampoo pure and fresh.|
|Citric Acid||Fruit based acid which is used to match the pH of Dr Zoo Shampoo to that of pets.|
