WHAT CAUSES ADVERSE REACTIONS TO DOG BATH PRODUCTS?
If your dog seems to be having an allergic or adverse reaction to pets, a visit to the vet is always recommended. That being said, what are some well-known causes of adverse skin reactions in dogs?
Oftentimes, the culprits in post-bath skin flare ups are irritants or allergens in dog
bath products. Get those reading glasses out and prepare to start reading labels! Some common irritants and allergens include:
- 2-Bromo-2-nitropropane-1,3-diol (a preservative)
- Cetearyl alcohol (conditioning ingredient)
- Coal tar (anti-dandruff ingredient)
- Cocamide DEA (foam booster and foam stabilizer)
- Cocamidopropyl betaine (foam booster, mild cleanser)
- DMDM hydantoin (preservative)
- Imidazolidinyl urea (preservative)
- Propylene glycol (humectant)
- Sodium lauryl sulfate/SLS (degreaser)
- Some essential oils
- Tocopherol (Vitamin E)
Vitamin E -- Who knew? Considering how ubiquitous some of these ingredients are in dog bath care products, it’s not surprising that skin irritation complaints are so common amongst dog owners.
Luckily, TBC has searched the globe for you. We found Cider & Basil Dog Bath Bombs, Botanical Dog Shampoo Bars, and Dog Coat Treatment Oils to leave your dog's fur soothed, fluffed, glowing and deliciously scented with natural, eco-friendly ingredients.
