Just like humans, some pets have sensitive skin. This can cause irritation or even lead to severe allergies or other skin reactions. What’s more, products with harsh toxins or chemicals are bad for the environment.
Fortunately, there are natural pet grooming options out there. These products are made with high-quality natural and organic ingredients to ensure your four-legged friend can enjoy soft and silky fur without harming either their skin or our planet.
Read on to learn more about the benefits of all-natural pet grooming and our favourite hypoallergenic products.
What’s Natural Pet Grooming All About?
Grooming is an important part of maintaining your pet’s health and well-being. Your pet deserves to have a clean coat, healthy teeth, trimmed nails and soft fur. By taking care of these important aspects, you’re also able to catch any underlying conditions or problems as early as possible.
We look for natural pet grooming products that contain natural ingredients which are processed using simple methods so that they maintain their natural properties. We avoid chemicals, growth hormones, pesticides, and other nasty toxins at all costs. Sadly, many products may be labelled as ‘natural’ or ‘organic’ when that isn’t the case. Be sure to be a conscious pet owner by properly reading labels and doing your due diligence.
In addition, it’s important to consider the packaging and materials used to make the product. We source natural cat grooming and natural dog grooming products that are low waste, plastic-free, biodegradable, vet-approved, compostable, organic, recyclable and more!
Reasons to Choose All-Natural Pet Grooming Products
We know you want the best for your pet and planet and look for sustainable, natural products like stainless steel bowls and upcycled pet beds for example, but grooming products are something you should consider as well. Many natural dog grooming and natural cat grooming products contain chemicals that may produce instant results but come at a cost to your precious pet’s health. To avoid these long-term undesirable effects, it’s best to opt for safe and natural products. Choosing to be a sustainable pet owner will also lead to a reduced risk of skin irritation and be better for our planet too. We know you want to get rid of pet odors naturally, we do too. Natural and organic products must follow strict regulatory standards for organic farming. Production, packaging, shipping, and storage will also be taken into consideration in order to promote sustainability. And of course, you can count on these products to be cruelty-free!
