Hypo-Allergenic for Sensitive Skin
Dogs with any type of allergy do well with this shampoo, as do dogs with sensitivities to other shampoos, soaps, or detergents. Dogs with skin which is irritated but may have sensitivities to the organic essential oils which are in the Lavender & Geranium formula, or if the irritants are unknown, are best suited for this formula. It is extremely mild and non-irritating.
This formula is simply our organic shampoo base with no essential oils added.
All of our products are made from natural derived or organic ingredients, which means they are safe and healthy for pets, with no need to worry about overuse of harmful ingredients which may be toxic to dogs.
We are always looking for ingredients which are certified organic or wild harvested or natural derived. Black Sheep Organics, as a manufacturer, combines these ingredients into new products, which in turn require their own inspection in order to be certified organic. However, we are a small, family owned company, who - much like small organic farmers - can not yet afford the cost of certification, but are working towards this for the future.
Absolutely no animal testing!
All of our products are vegan and cruelty free. Black Sheep Organics along with its suppliers seek for ingredients that have never been tested on animals at any stage of production. We were registered under Leaping Bunny Program since 2011.
A healthy planet is a passion of ours, so we've made sure we choose bio-degradable. This means when our shampoo goes down the drain, it won't harm any wildlife as it makes it's way to our lakes, rivers and oceans. The fish and whales will surely thank you! This also means our shampoo can go camping for a fun bath in the river!
We limit our use of plastic and excess materials as much as possible, and always do our best to make the most earth friendly choices in packaging our products. Currently, recyclable bottles are our most sustainable material option, but we do use Post Consumer Recycled (PCR) plastics when we can. Our plastic bottles are PETE #1, which is the most common and easiest to recycle plastic, as well as being the least toxic (along with HDPE #2), and creates the least amount of toxins during production. We hope to be using a plant based plastic alternative in the future, and stay abreast of advances in packaging.
