Ingredient Why We Chose It
Purified Water Oils alone tend to sit on the surface of the skin. Combining oils with water (using an emulsifier) helps the oils penetrate and moisturise the skin properly
Titanium Dioxide An alternative to zinc which is toxic for pets. It is used in toothpastes and treats for pets
Tocopherol (Vitamin E) Natural Vitamin E. Promotes healthy skin
Coco-Caprylate Coconut based conditioner
Triglyceride Fractionated Coconut Oil
Glyceryl Stearate Acts as a lubricant on the skin's surface, which gives the skin a soft and smooth appearance. It also slows the loss of water from the skin by forming a barrier on the skin's surface.
Cetearyl Alcohol (Plant Emulsifier) Creams are made from a mix of purified water and oils so as to be more moisturising than oil alone. To hold water and oils together, they need an emulsifying wax. We use a plant based wax that allows the water and oils to stay together.
Piroctone Olamine Helps keep the balm sterile
Naringin Natural bittering agent from orange peel
Dicaprylyl Carbonate Emollient ingredient. It spreads easily and leaves a velvety feel on skin without seeming greasy or slick. It also helps other ingredients penetrate skin better.
Aluminium Stearate Used as an emulsifier in cosmetics and as a water repellent agent
Aluminium Stearate Used as an emulsifier in cosmetics and as a water repellent agent
Hop Extract From Hops. Helps keep the balm sterile without using synthetic preservatives. We believe it should be assumed all dogs will ingest their skin care products :)
