Formulated for dry, itchy skin, it has rich, natural ingredients like sweet almond oil that help reduce inflammation and effectively moisturize paws–and elbows too! Consistent, frequent application encourages healing and provides protection from exposure to the elements; it is ideal and safe for doggies of all ages.
EFFECTIVE SKIN PROTECTION AND REPAIR: Made with ingredients known for their emollient, therapeutic properties, it is ideal for preventing excessive dryness of the skin and subsequent cracking and peeling that often lead to discomfort and disease. Formulated for serious moisturizing of paws and elbows, it repairs moisture-depleted pads and rough, scaly elbows with soothing oils and other organic ingredients that nourish the skin, seal in moisture, and create a protective layer against the elements and moderate skin irritants.
SWEET ALMOND OIL: Already used in skin care in ancient times, and valued for its natural goodness, this very mild, hypoallergenic oil is safe for almost all skin types (unless your doggie is allergic to nuts) and ideal for use on very dry, itchy skin. It is packed with nutrients such as beneficial fatty acids, vitamins A, E, and B complex, which are essential for maintaining healthy skin cells; has antibacterial qualities—applied to various microorganisms in the course of antimicrobial studies, it has shown to reduce the number of viable bacteria by 98.9%—and when tested for oral and dermal toxicity, clinical assessment on animal toxicology indicates that sweet almond oil is safe for use on animals.
HEALTH BENEFITS: Coconut Oil contains vitamin E and has anti-viral, anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, anti-itching, and anti-inflammatory properties. Beeswax contains vitamin A, an anti-oxidant, has some free-radical scavenging abilities, conditions and soothes the skin, and creates a protective barrier that seals in moisture. Shea butter has high concentrations of beneficial fatty acids and vitamins such as vitamin A, E, and F which are powerful antioxidants that promote circulation and healthy skin cell growth; it is highly regarded in the beauty industry for its health benefits; it conditions and nourishes the skin and has anti-inflammatory and healing properties. Together, they are the perfect natural moisturizer to protect the skin barrier and soothe irritated, excessively dry, itchy skin; their anti-inflammatory agents are also known to accelerate wound healing.
100% ORGANIC INGREDIENTS: Organic, cold-pressed, virgin coconut oil, organic sweet almond oil, organic shea butter, and organic beeswax are the only ingredients we use to formulate these products—nothing else.
SAFE, ECO-FRIENDLY, ETHICAL SKIN CARE: It only contains the purest ingredients widely recognized by vets as effective for use in pet skincare. No chemicals or preservatives, gluten- and paraben-free, unscented, recyclable packaging, not tested on animals, made in the USA
HOW TO USE AND STORE: Apply as needed and as often as desired—minimally one daily application is recommended as part of your pooch-grooming routine for optimal paw and elbow care and maintenance. Spread paws directly into the paw balm or spread a thin layer on pads and between toes! No need to shave hair. Always wipe your dog’s paws after being outside. Store at room temperature to preserve the full beneficial properties of its ingredients. Tip: The absence of preservatives in this product makes the almond oil in it more reactive to heat and therefore structurally fragile if exposed to extreme temperatures. Coconut oil will harden with colder temperatures, so it may be necessary to scoop up a bit of it in your hands and warm it slightly there before applying it to your dog’s skin. Slightly damp skin will accelerate absorption.
