Is your pampered pooch suffering with dry, itchy skin?

There are many reasons why your dog could be suffering from itchy skin.

This is because your dog’s skin is a lot more sensitive than yours or mine. Like humans, your dog’s skin has naturally occurring oils that can be stripped away by harsh shampoo and conditions leaving their skin dry and their coat brittle.

Chemical filled detergent soap can give us dry, itchy skin, eczema or dermatitis; these same chemicals can give your dog, dry, itchy skin or other health problems.

Some other reasons your pet could be suffering with itchy skin:

Over washing of your dog which can lead to dryness, especially if the products you’re using contain chemicals. Experts recommend bathing only once a month to keep their skin and coat healthy.
Fleas or parasites can be a common culprit.
Infections such as hot spots
Food allergies – check your dog’s diet, he could have an allergy to one or more ingredients in his food, try changing the food that he eats.
Irritants from detergents used to wash bedding, household cleaners or even sprays used in your yard.

Finding the cause of your dog’s problem can be a step by step process of elimination.

Concerned owners will take their pooch to see a vet, but medicine might not help if the allergic reaction is from the harsh chemicals contained in detergent type dog shampoo.

Many pet owners who use chemical filled dog shampoos find that their dogs tend to scratch a lot. This is because most of these chemical based shampoos contain irritants and ingredients that can irritate your dog’s skin and make it very dry.

Using organic dog shampoo will reduce the likelihood of allergies or rashes associated with the chemicals commonly found in most grooming products and will also help to eliminate potential harm from these chemicals from not only your pet, but for you as well.

This gorgeous girl is our pampered pooch, she’s a Bernese Mountain Dog and the best dog in the world in mine and my family’s opinion, she has the most beautiful nature and is so gentle, we love her to bits.

Her health is very important to me so I decided to make her a 100% pure and natural soap bar that would keep her beautiful long coat, soft and silky.

Are you looking for a bar of soap that will gently cleanse, moisturise and nourish your skin?

Without giving you that dried out feel! Then handmade pure and natural soap is the answer.

Unlike mass produced commercial soap bars, pure handmade soap does not contain that long list of chemicals you find on the labels of commercial soaps. Many dry skin and dermatitis problems are a result of using harsh chemical loaded soaps.

Our skin absorbs whatever products we use on it, so if those products contain chemicals, we are risking not only skin irritations such as dry itchy skin, eczema and dermatitis, but much more serious health problems. Studies have shown that the chemicals you use on your skin can enter your bloodstream within minutes.

Handmade natural soap will not strip your skin of its natural oils; they retain the moisturising glycerine that is extracted from commercial bars, making them mild and gentle and a great choice for dry, sensitive and eczema prone skins.

After using high quality handmade soap you will feel the difference in your skin and will never want to go back to store bought detergent bars again!

If your soap dries your skin out or makes it feel tight or itchy, question its ingredients.

Imagine if you could have soft, clean, healthy skin without that dryness or itchiness you can get from store bought bars and without using chemicals, you can have all this.
