I don’t want to use steroids or drugs on my dogs. Does Dermacton contain steroids or other drugs?
No. Dermacton does not contain steroids or drugs, and only contains high quality natural ingredients. Our Dermacton Range, whilst highly effective, is also very gentle on your dogs skin.
Can the Dermacton be used on broken skin?
Yes, Dermacton is completely safe to use on sore or broken skin. It will soothe and help to promote natural regeneration of healthy skin tissue. If your dog has an actual wound, we would recommend using our Ultrasalve first aid product for the fastest possible results.
Can it be used around the eyes?
Dermacton cream has been used very successfully around dogs’ eyes; however, you must be very careful and ensure that you don’t get any into the eye itself. Use only a tiny amount of cream, and rub it completely into the skin, so that there isn’t any left on the surface that your dog could later rub into the eyes.
Only use around the eyes if you have already used the cream on other areas, or performed a successful double patch test.
What is in the Dermacton?
Dermacton is a high quality cream with shea butter and beeswax and is free of any petroleum ingredients. It contains a unique & protected blend of over 16 essential oils & herbal extracts each individually selected for their anti-itch & soothing qualities, which works rapidly to soothe damaged, irritated & itchy skin. It is a light, highly nourishing product, which absorbs quickly and will condition your dogs’ skin.
What if my dog tries to lick it off?
Dermacton contains no harmful ingredients, though obviously you need to stop your dog licking as much as possible so that the cream stays on to work effectively. The ingredients in the Dermacton will naturally deter most dogs from licking, however if your dog is a persistent licker it may be useful to apply it prior to them being distracted eg prior to a walk, play or feeding, and rub it well in. As long as it gets a few minutes to soak in, it will start working.
Is the cream better than the spray?
Both the cream and spray contain the same Dermacton formula, and both work as well as each other. Whilst some of it is personal preference, we generally recommend the cream when there is hair loss or thickened skin or for small isolated areas, and the spray when there is more coat or to cover larger areas.
What is the shelf life of this product?
The shelf life of this product is 12 months from the date of purchase if stored in a cool place.
Could it irritate my dogs skin?
Dermacton is entirely natural and has been specially developed to be as hypoallergenic as possible even for dogs with sensitive skin. However, although rare, it is possible occasionally for a dog to be sensitive to even natural ingredients, therefore we always recommend performing a double patch test prior to first use. Patch test information is sent out with every order.
What if it doesn’t help my dog?
Dermacton has been hugely successful in helping thousands of dogs, however we do understand that each dog is individual and there are a multitude of different reasons for dogs itching and rubbing, therefore we offer a full unconditional 60 day money back guarantee on ALL our products purchased directly from this website.
Can it be used on other animals?
This product has been developed and tested specifically for use on dogs only, and therefore we do not recommend that it be used on other animals. We do however offer similar products developed specifically for cats & horses.
