What uses is Wrinkle Balm recommended for?
Wrinkle Balm is essential for treating and preventing:
- Skin fold dermatitis
- Yeast and bacterial infections
- Redness, chaffing, inflammation
- Crusty buildup
- Sores, pimples, scabbing
- Itchy / flaky skin
- Hot spots, hair loss / baldness
- Unpleasant odor
If symptoms are neglected and left untreated, issues can lead to much more serious conditions such as pyoderma, a severe bacterial infection and skin disease. Pets with rolls are susceptible to many unfortunate conditions; it is our duty as loving owners to make sure we keep them healthy and comfortable.
How should I apply Wrinkle Balm?
If dirt or debris are evidence, cleanse area if possible before application. Use two fingers to scoop a small amount and gently rub into skin fold creases. Or, for no mess application, use a small beauty pad or low-absorbant cloth. Apply two to three times daily. Frequent application is important to protect against infections and to kill any existing bacteria.
Can I apply Wrinkle Balm directly on face wrinkles?
Yes! Wrinkle Balm is specially formulated to be gentle enough to use around sensitive areas such as the face. You will definitely want to avoid getting any product inside the eyes, but about a half inch distance should be a safe enough to avoid accidental eye contact.
How often should I apply Natural Dog Wrinkle Balm?
Frequent application is important to protect against infections and to kill any existing bacteria. If an infection is already present, we recommend applying at least 2-3x a day – especially before bedtime when the body goes into regeneration mode to receive the most healing benefits. Once the infection is cleared, you can reduce application to a few times a week to prevent further issues. For more stubborn and severe infections, we recommend our organic Skin Soother. Skin Soother is a stronger formula that will be able to clear any cases that Wrinkle Balm may be too gentle for.
How soon can I expect to see results?
This is hard to say, as it varies greatly depending on the initial condition and frequency of use. Many customers see incredible results within the first week, while others may take longer. It is important to apply multiple times daily and try to distract your dog from licking in order to get the best results.
What is the difference between Wrinkle Balm and coconut oil?
Wrinkle Balm actually contains high quality Virgin Organic Coconut Oil. However, our Wrinkle Balm formula is a powerhouse of 10 additional ingredients including several other moisturizing and healing oils and butters with a variety of favorable fatty acid characteristics. Wrinkle Balm also contains a proprietary and specially formulated Olive Leaf Extract that is oil soluble and extremely high in the constituent oleuropein. Oleuropein is prized for its anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties.
Is Wrinkle Balm unscented?
We do not add any fragrance enhancers into Wrinkle Balm. However, because it is made of organic essential oils and waxes, Wrinkle Balm does emit a very slight, clean scent.
What is the difference between Wrinkle Balm and Skin Soother?
While Skin Soother and Wrinkle Balm both have similar qualities, Skin Soother has a higher concentration of essential oils and is a more powerful formula. Because of this high concentration, it is not recommended for sensitive tissues, such as around the face and eyes. Wrinkle Balm is a milder formula and better suited for those areas. In similar instances, if there are problematic areas that are not being resolved completely with Wrinkle Balm, it may be necessary to use Skin Soother due to the more powerful formula.
Should we use medicated wipes along with Wrinkle Balm?
While wrinkles should be gently wiped clean before applying Wrinkle Balm, there are many wipes out there that contain harsh chemicals and acidic properties that may further irritate the skin. It is important to choose a natural / gentle wipe if your dog is already experiencing skin sensitivity and irritation.
