It’s becoming harder and harder to spot the good beauty products from the bad. With everything being labelled as ‘green’ or ‘eco-friendly’, what should you really be looking out for in a natural dog shampoo?
Firstly, the bad news: not all countries have strong product labelling laws. This can make it incredibly easy for companies that are doing the wrong thing to hide in the dark, and it also makes it really difficult for consumers to do the right thing.
The good news is that good companies (like Houndztooth) will boast about actually making pet shampoos and conditioners that are good for your dog and the environment. To find out whether a particular dog shampoo is the one for you, contact the supplier and ask the following questions:
1. Do your products contain palm oil?
2. Do your products contain any artificial fragrances?
3. Do your products contact SLS or EDTA?
4. Do your products contain parabens?
The good suppliers will be able to answer ‘no’ to all of these questions and give you honest answers!
