I’ve been asked to make a dog soap kit, and here it is! Available now NATURAL DOG SOAP (only in New Zealand) for $70
This is a very gentle and mild soap made with coconut and avocado oil, and with added colloidal oats, to help soothe and prevent skin irritation, and neem oil, which is well-known to repel fleas and ticks. It is specially formulated, because dogs have a more sensitive skin than us, humans, and it’s important not to upset the delicate pH balance and natural oils of their skin and fur.
The soap is unfragranced and doesn’t use any essential oils. A lesser known fact, and something that I see worryingly all too often in DIY dog soaps and products, is the addition of essential oils. Just because it’s safe for us, doesn’t mean it’s not toxic for dogs, and common essential oils, such as peppermint, tea tree, and citrus, are toxic to dogs, both when ingested but also when absorbed through the skin, and in some instances, cases of poisoning have occurred due to a constant essential oil diffuser. Another thing to consider, is that dogs lick their fur, and that makes ingestion a lot more likely. It is important that when you buy products for your four legged furry friend, that you check the ingredients and that they do not contain essential oils.
This kit includes two soap moulds and it will make 6 cute little paw print soaps and 2 large bars of soap.
