Vegan Ingredients – Why Use Them?

When buying products nowadays, many people aren’t aware of which ingredients are contained, and how they affect their body. Some ingredients are harmful, and the way that they are manufactured or processed also causes harm. Let’s take a closer look at cosmetic products, and why it is beneficial to opt for vegan alternatives.

Common Ingredients Found in Non-Vegan Products
Would you want to spread dead insect extracts on your skin, or the skin of your pets? I know I wouldn’t, but you may be doing just that with conventional care products. What are the animal ingredients commonly found in cosmetic and beauty products for humans and animals? See the following list:

  • Carmine- This provides color and is made from the legs and body of cochineal insects.
  • Collagen- This is a protein found in animals which is extracted from the cartilage of dead animals. It is used in lotions and creams for firming effects.
  • Keratin- This is a protein which is extracted from the horns, nails and hair of animals and is used in hair products.
  • Lanolin- This is a fat which is extracted from the hair of sheep and is then used in lotions.
  • Squalene- This is the oil from the liver of a shark which is extracted and used as a moisturizer.

If you would like to avoid ingredients like these in your products, vegan cosmetics are the way to go. When you choose a vegan product, you can rest assured that you will be avoiding all animal by-products.

Non-Irratating
Without the animal-based ingredients, many people find beauty products to be friendlier to sensitive skin, not causing irritation. Where do vegan ingredients come from? Well most will come from plant or mineral-based sources which contain beneficial properties used to heal and soothe the body. In fact, minerals and plants have been used for hundreds of years to help treat the skin. So not only will you be removing irritating elements, but you will replace them with helpful, rich substances.

Animal-Friendly
If you have a dog, chances are, you understand how aware and sensitive they can be. If you would like to avoid supporting any kind of harm to other animals which occurs in the production or testing of products, vegan products give you that peace of mind.

Transparent
Lastly, true vegan companies offer transparency in their products. You will be able to see exactly what is in the product you are buying. Being that all products are full of beneficial ingredients, they are proud to show you what you are getting. This is unlike non-vegan products which use many chemicals, such as the mysterious “fragrances”, and ingredients the company hopes consumers won’t be aware of. Enjoy knowing exactly what you are getting.

Vegan Natural Dog Company
The Natural Dog Company is a brand you can trust for products made with organic, all-natural, vegan ingredients that are cruelty-free. They conduct thorough research on each of their products to ensure safety, without the use of animals. Additionally, they take sincere care in choosing ingredients free of chemicals, fertilizers, or pesticides. This effort and commitment to quality products, results in nourishing and safe products for your furry friends.

Heal your Dog’s Skin Problems with Organic Skin Soother!

If there’s one thing dog owners can agree on, it’s that nothing is too good for our canine companions. These amazing animals bring us so much joy and happiness that we’re always willing to pamper that pup in any way we can, and that’s why the canine care market is such a big one. Whether it’s chew toys, dog biscuits, grooming brushes, custom-knit sweaters, or even just rhinestone-encrusted collars, we make sure our dogs have everything they could ever need or want – or do we?

It’s Not Pampering When It’s Needed

Like no other animal, dogs are always getting into trouble – sometimes way over their head. Even the most sheltered urban apartment pooch can end up getting into mischief and end up with mystery scratches and rashes all over their skin. It’s just their nature – they play rough and they don’t really think ahead when it comes to whether they’re going to injure themselves. It’s why any dog owner knows that they need to keep a puppy first-aid kit at hand for whatever kind of situation their dog ends up in.

This is exactly why we’ve developed our brand-new Skin Soother product. Made from our exclusive blend of safe, edible, organic, all-natural and vegan ingredients, Skin Soother is a natural antibiotic topical treatment – like the kind of bacitracin ointment you would keep in your own medicine cabinet, but without all the chemicals. Made in the USA, our Skin Soother is brimming with antifungal, antibacterial, and healing herbs that help to seal the skin to prevent further contamination and have anti-inflammatory properties to promote fast healing.

Skin Soother Uses

Skin Soother is perfect for helping to heal the kinds of simple cuts and scrapes that any pugnacious pup can end up suffering just from running around the house or back yard. However, the power of our topical ointment goes far beyond that; Skin Soother can help burns, abrasions, or serious wounds – heal faster and cleaner. Our product is also ideal for healing rashes caused by dry skin or irritation, combating yeast and fungal infections, and even any number of bacterial issues, including but not limited to:

  • Hot spots
  • Bacterial folliculitis
  • Atopic Dermatitis
  • Impetigo
  • Acral lick dermatitis (granuloma)
  • Allergic dermatitis
  • Seborrhea
  • Alopecia
  • Démodé tic mange

The Benefits of Skin Soother

Skin Soother is about more than just providing topical relief for our best friends while they’re healing from a scrape or a cut. While our exclusive formula of organic and all-natural, cruelty-free ingredients can indeed soothe uncomfortable or painful skin conditions, applying Skin Soother to your treasured pet’s wounds has many other benefits, including a reduction in scarring and speeding recovery time. In fact, Skin Soother can not only help to heal existing skin infections but can prevent them in the first place.

Reversing infections before they progress or stopping them right before they even happen doesn’t just keep your precious pooch from having to deal with needless pain and suffering; it also keeps you out of the vet’s office. It’s not cheap to see to your dog’s health – and while most dog owners will spare no expense when it comes to their pet, spending a fraction of the price on Skin Soother means more money to spend on fun stuff for your dog, like treats, toys and spa days down at the local groomer – things your dog will enjoy much more than getting poked and prodded by the vet!

Keep Your Pet Safe and Happy

We know how important the health of your favorite pet is to both you and the rest of your family. That playful pup deserves only the best, especially considering how he or she is the very center of your family, and our Skin Soother provides only the best when it comes to safe and all-natural skin care for that loving, devoted dog of yours that shares your home and your heart; keep your cherished pet safe for years to come by keeping his or her skin healthy with Skin Soother ointment.

Healthy dogs are happy pups!

It wasn’t all a game of fetch creating a line of soothing natural dog products but all of the hard work has proven well worthwhile. Every last ingredient included must play an important role in healing dry dog noses and cracked paws, without any negative side effects or questionable sources. One of the proven beneficial ingredients naturally sourced is organic sweet almond oil.

Sweet almond oil is a non-greasy moisturizer that does not leave any oily residue behind, as so many other similar products can. Almond oil slowly absorbs into the skin so that it provides active healing throughout the day. The useful quality of sweet almond oil has been recognized in many industries, prompting its use in massage therapy, aromatherapy, and hair care. Plus, it’s safe enough to use on infants, and moisturizing enough to use as a wood conditioner!  Not only is sweet almond oil a great moisturizer, but it can also help reduce inflammation issues as well. At Natural Dog, we want your dog to experience the healing benefits of almond oil as it works alongside our other valuable ingredients to provide soothing relief to dry dog noses and dog paws.

Where Does Organic Sweet Almond Oil Originate?

almonds

Sweet almonds contain 44% oils, these oils are incredibly moisturizing and play a big role in Snout Soother’s ability to heal dry dog noses.

Sweet almond trees (aprunus amygdalus var. dulcis tree) grow as a native plant in South Asia and the Middle East. Not only are almonds eaten by themselves, sold both shelled and unshelled, but they are also used to make a variety of other products. Have you ever heard of almond milk? Or almond butter? Almonds are tasty and they also offer a healthy solution to other ingredients. Almonds carry a lot of oils, in fact about 44% of total almond content is made up of oils. But beware of the 2  types of nuts, sweet and bitter almonds, both of which come from similar but different trees. While sweet almonds have many healing attributes, bitter almonds can produce deadly effects if not properly prepared thanks to high levels of cyanide. We source all of our sweet almond oil carefully and from trusted locations to guarantee our products only contain pure all-natural sweet almond oil.

Snout Soother Ingredients:

Shea Butter

Many moons ago Shea Butter was declared amazing for human skin, yet it wasn’t until recently that the same properties were found to benefit dogs as well. Shea Butter soothes sore and irritated skin by naturally hydrating the surface. For dogs with light colored noses, Shea Butter also offers protection of SPF 9.

Organic Hempseed Oil

Hemp is an excellent source of protein containing Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids. It is also packed with vitamins B1, B3, B6, B12, C, D, and E, along with Calcium, Fiber and antioxidants. Hempseed has also been linked to a strengthened immune system, which will ultimately improve the condition of skin, particularly sensitive skin like what is found on the nose.

Kukui Nut Oil

Kukui Nut Oil is stuffed full of many good fatty acids that have proven beneficial to the overall condition of skin. This nut oil actually increases skin cell regeneration, which allows the skin to better protect itself, and also reduce water loss.

Jojoba Oil

Jojoba Oil is a neutralizing oil that originates from the Jojoba plant, growing in Mexico and the Southwestern United States. In honor of your canine’s sensitivity to smells, Jojoba Oil is added to reduce the odor of the other ingredients in our dog balm, Snout Soother. Jojoba is also a moisturizer and can help unclog skin follicles.

Sweet Almond Oil

Sweet Almond oil has been used for centuries to soften and moisturize dry, damaged skin.  In doing so, almond oil helps balance the amount of moisture skin loses and absorbs.

Rosemary Extract

rosemary

Rosemary is a powerful ingredient for dog noses included in Snout Soother, it soothes, protects, and even calms your dog down!

Rosemary Extract is a powerful aromatherapy tool used to promote better digestion and circulation, pair this with Rosemary’s ability to strengthen capillaries and this ingredient actually helps keep dogs calmer while wearing the balm. Rosemary is also a powerful antioxidant that helps eliminate and protect dog noses from free radical damage to DNA.

Natural Vitamin E

Another powerful antioxidant, Vitamin E eliminates skin of free radicals that can otherwise cause damage. Pulled directly from the plant, Vitamin E is imperative to healthy cardiovascular function.

Candelilla Wax

Candelilla Wax is one of the most important ingredients in our soothing balm for dry dog noses. Derived from the candelilla shrub, it is used to increase the effectiveness of the protective coating so that Snout Soother stays in place and does its job.  A moisturizer in itself, candelilla wax is high in fatty acids and ester.
