This is Benson, my adorable doggy grandson. And, as you can see, muddy puddles make him very happy indeed.
Skin-wise, Benson is a sensitive soul – and his mud obsession means frequent baths so I formulated this dog shampoo especially for him. It has been tested on Benson and I’m pleased to say that both he and his mum heartily approve.
The shampoo bar lathers up just the right amount for a thorough cleansing, then it rinses out with no fuss. Your dog’s skin is nourished, and their coat smells beautifully fresh and clean.
So, what’s in it?
Organic avocado oil, jojoba oil and evening primrose oil hydrate and calm the skin, while coconut, olive and apricot kernel oils are blended with castor oil to create the right amount of lather for your dog.
Organic neem oil helps ward off fleas and ticks, and is excellent for your dog’s skin and coat. It’s mixed with a selection of dog-friendly, antibacterial and skin-calming essential oils (lavender, tea tree, peppermint and lemon) to make your dog smell lovely.
Aloe vera provides more skin calming, while green clay detoxifies and cleanses.
How to use your dog shampoo bar
Benson’s Bubbles dog shampoo bar can be used in warm or cold water. Wet your dog’s coat and rub it with the whole bar a few times. Be careful to avoid the eyes, ears and nose.
As you rub, the shampoo will produce enough lather for a thorough clean – although if your dog is really dirty (like Benson) it’s fine to rinse and repeat..
