Oil based shampoo has a number of benefits for dogs. It will help to keep their coat healthy and free from tangles, and it can also help to protect their skin from dryness and irritation. There are a number of different oils that can be used in shampoo, and each has its own set of benefits.
For example, the sweet orange oil in our Regular Shampoo Sweet orange oil is a natural flea and tick repellent. Sweet orange oil is gentle on your dog's skin and coat, and won't strip away natural oils like some other shampoos can.
Chamomile oil is naturally antibacterial and anti-inflammatory, which can help to heal skin conditions such as allergies, hot spots, and mange. It is also gentle and calming, making it ideal for dogs with sensitive skin.
Lemongrass oil is also an anti-inflammatory agent. This oil has been shown to reduce inflammation in the skin and joints. Lemongrass oil is a safe and effective way to treat a wide range of conditions in dogs. This oil is a natural and effective alternative to many conventional medications.
Coconut oil is a perfect base oil, as it can help to moisturise your dog's skin and add shine to their coat. When using oil based shampoo on your dog, it is important to follow the instructions on the bottle carefully. This will help to ensure that you are using the right amount of shampoo and that you are not over-washing your dog's coat. Oil based shampoo can be a great way to keep your dog's coat looking and feeling its best.
Be sure to choose a shampoo that is specifically designed for your dog's needs, Hey Hudson has a Sensitive Shampoo, a Calming Shampoo and our Regular Shampoo. They’re all oil based and since they don’t have any harsh chemicals, parabens or emulsifiers, they require a good shake beforehand, then a few pumps straight onto the wet fur. They will lather up with water and a good massage. Start with 2 pumps then lather, and work from there depending on your 4 legged bestie’s breed.
