FurBulous DogTM Shampoo contains organic coconut, olive and jojoba oils, natural essential oil blend including tea tree and organic orange oil, organic aloe vera and rosemary extract.
FurBulous Flea & Tick Shampoo has all the ingredients above, plus a special ingredient called neem.
2. What is neem?
Neem is an oil that comes from the Indian neem tree and has antiseptic, antibacterial, and antifungal properties. It is used in natural insect repellant products and those used to treat lice and other skin problems.
3. What does it mean to be USDA Certified Organic?
Both FurBulous DogTM products are certified organic by the USDA. This means that 95% of the product is organic. This means that its ingredients are free from pesticides, chemicals and preservatives. It is deemed to be good for the environment as organic products are made with renewable resources and focus on conservation of soil and water.
Plants that it comes from must be able to pack and be certified USDA organic. All equipment that packs natural essential oils must be cleaned before packing organic.
4. Why don’t I get much lather when washing my dog with FurBulous?
The ingredients in shampoos that give you lots of foam and lather are detergents and surfactants like sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS). SLS is a known irritant. There are other, friendlier ways to cleanse, such as the use of essential oils which break down residues and dirt and rinse clean.
Use just enough FurBulous DogTM to cover your pet without over-shampooing.
5. How much shampoo should I use for my dog?
We wish we could give you a more specific answer, but the answer is, it depends on the size of your dog and how much hair he has. There are many things that can affect how much you use including how wet the hair is to begin with, how big the dog is, how thoroughly you wash every inch of your dog, etc. Our suggestion is to use it just as you would a human shampoo. FurBulous DogTM goes a long way.
6. How do I use the spray-on bottle?
Push the cap of the bottle down 4-5 times to aerate the product. Remove the cap and spray. Each time you want to spray more, you’ll aerate it first.
7. What is the shelf life of FurBulous DogTM shampoos?
These products are made of essential oils, and pure essential oils do not go rancid. Over time, however, essential oils can oxidize, deteriorate and gradually lose their therapeutic value and aromatic quality. As a general rule of thumb, essential oils usually retain their aromatic and therapeutic quality for at least 1 year.
