Good So my Westie has had problems with constant chewing of her paws and scratching of her sides. It would keep me awake all night. I've been using this now for maybe 2 months, I have seen a huge difference in her paws, they were stained brown from the constant chomping and now they are mostly white, just a slight bit of browning on her paws, she's mostly stoped riving at them, but she still does lick them quite obsessively. The balding patches where she was tearing the fur have also recovered. Overall, she's still scratching, not as badly but the general health of her coat is much better.

When developing this shampoo, after testing multiple formulations, the bar format was by far the winner for being high foaming (even in hard water areas), easy to use and long lasting, which makes it very economical and effective. Plus, it is also kinder to the environment by using less packaging. The bar format also ensures that the shampoo is easily distributed across the whole coat without having concentrated areas of liquid shampoo, which as well as saving money, makes it easier to rinse out. Please note- each shampoo bar is handmade, so don’t worry if it isn’t perfectly uniform, each bar has been carefully weighed.
Any dogs who suffer from skin irritations, doggy odour or who are sensitive to harsh shampoos will benefit from this shampoo. Alternatively, anyone who simply wants to use a more natural shampoo without harsh chemical detergents and preservatives.
It is very gentle and mild, and conditions the skin and coat. Great care has been taken to source the gentlest surfactants whilst maintaining the highest performance and foaming properties. The ingredients are all naturally derived, and the shampoo is both soap free and SLS, SLES free.
For best results use it once or twice a week. Ensure that you leave the shampoo on the coat for at least 5 minutes to ensure the ingredients get to work. If your dog has a difficult skin problem, to get the best results, we recommend that you use the shampoo in conjunction with the other products from our Dermacton range. Allow the Dermacton Shampoo to dry completely between uses by storing in a dry environment.
As with all shampoos, try to avoid getting any in your dog’s eyes. In the event of accidental contact, rinse with plenty of water.
The shelf life of this product is 12 months from the date of purchase when stored in a cool place.
Whilst this is hypoallergenic, unfortunately, it is possible for animals to be sensitive to any ingredient natural or not, so we do recommend that you do a double patch test before first use.
No, sorry. This product has been developed specifically for using on dogs. Unfortunately it is not suitable for using on other animals.
