Our Go-To Ingredients for a Luscious Coat - 

Avocado Oil:

Ultimately, dog's skin is thinner than human skin, therefore, dogs have a higher chance of ingredients going into the bloodstream, so it is imperative that whatever we place on the surface is good for their skin and stream. 

Avocado oil is high in Omega-3 fatty acids and Vitamins A, D and E, it provides deep moisture, helps to relieve inflammation and provides healing benefits to the skin and hair follicles. Furthermore, avocado oil contains free fatty acids, meaning this is perfect for your dog's barrier health and hydration levels in skin and coat [1].

Sweet Almond Oil: 

Rich in protein, vitamins and minerals, this fantastic oil is highly moisturising for your pets skin, providing relief from dryness and itching. Sweet almond oil is a fantastic anti-inflammatory so perfect for any skin related conditions your pet may be experiencing [2]. 

Our Recommendation:

Hand rolled with natural essential oils & real botanical ingredients, our PET WASH ROCKS are perfect for keeping your fur baby clean & fresh without the nasty chemicals. Free from sulphates, parabens and toxic chemicals, these handmade soap bars will remove dirt & grime, without stripping essential oils and nutrients from your pets coat.

The bars come in two different scents:
