We use Organic Grapefruit as a key ingredient in many of our products, and thought you’d like to hear why.
But let me step back for a minute and talk a little more about the ingredients we use. We have a product development mantra of “Nature + Science”. When we started TrueBlue, we knew that we wanted toonly use natural ingredients. But we also understood that not every natural ingredient is right for cats and dogs.
So we worked with a team of expert Vet researchers at a leading University… that’s the “Science” side of the equation.
They helped us to identify key pet health needs and to pick only thesafest and most effective natural ingredients to use in our products.
In pet bathing products, the challenge is to make products that clean well, but don’t dry out the skin. Not that long ago, many pet parents used dish soap as their dog shampoo. And then they noticed that after a bath, the dog might look clean, but was often scratching like mad. That’s because the dish soap was super drying to the pet’s skin. Because of this, they would not be willing to bathe their dogs very often.
But these days we live in so much closer proximity with our pets. And that makes it more important than ever that they be clean…. Like if they are sleeping on the bed with us!
Grapefruit is terrific because it cleansesbeautifully, but doesn’t strip out the beneficial natural oils in your pet’s coat.
You’re probably aware of aloe vera's dominance in the world of human beauty and skincare. But is aloe vera safe for dogs?It’s true that not all things that are good for humans are also good for pets. But in the case of using aloe vera for dogs, its many uses and wellness properties for humans can benefit for our pets as well!
Thirty years ago, the term Wellness may have brought up images of Birkenstock wearing, back to nature types in a sweat lodge, but that’s changed dramatically. Wellness has a particularly strong appeal to pet parents, since it promises a double benefit—happier, healthier pets, and money saved due to fewer vet visits.
Excessive scratching and biting is a sign your pup is suffering from itchy and irritated skin or even various skin diseases. This is a common problem that can cause immense distress for a dog, so it shouldn’t be ignored. After all, you do not want to end up saying, my dog is itchy and now I am too!
