It’s that time again! Review time! Today is all about the earthbath Hypo-Allergenic shampoo. As always, I will be going over the ingredient deck list, the pros and cons, and where to buy. Like my previous shampoo (and conditioner) reviews, I am going to be referencing my bottle that I purchased for this review. earthbath is designed to be natural, non-toxic, and environment-friendly. Quoting directly from my bottle, “This product contains no: DEA, parabens, phosphates, synthetic dyes, or perfumes… The sudsy runoff is completely safe and will not harm kids, lawns, or other living things.” earthbath is also a cruelty-free brand, which believe it or not is hard to find in pet products, so YAY! One more side note, I purchased this product myself, with my own money. No one is paying me to give this review, this is 100% my own opinion. 🙂
Now, let’s talk ingredients. This so far is the shortest ingredient deck list I have seen on a product, and I could not be more thrilled! Again, using the bottle that I purchased we have purified water, extra-mild renewable coconut-based cleansers, aloe vera, xanthan gum, and olive oil squalene as a preservative. That’s it. Nothing else. For those wondering xanthan gum is a thickening agent and is also a stabilizer to help prevent ingredients from separating (Google).
Moving on to the product itself, there is no fragrance, in my opinion, it literally smells like nothing. It is mostly clear, with a slight, slight yellow tint, and is on the thicker side for consistency. The directions on the bottle explain to shake well to mix the natural ingredients together before using, and once spread onto the coat, it does not run off easily, giving plenty of time to lather the product into the coat. It suds up nicely, and washes the coat well. I have no issues rinsing the product and do not feel any residual product on the coat. I do notice, however, that after drying, the coat feels soft and plush, but again, I don’t feel any residue or greasiness. Also, with this shampoo, I feel I don’t have to use a conditioner. Having used quite a few hypo-allergenic shampoos, none of them left the coat feeling super soft after drying. One last thing to mention is the coat smells clean, but not fragranced, after the bath. My dogs do not have any odor, just clean.
Overall, I do not have any cons for this product. I tried to be as critical as possible, but I cannot give a negative remark for this product. It cleans beautifully, lathers perfectly, has a short and good ingredient deck list, is biodegradable (forgot to mention that earlier), and is cruelty-free. My most sensitive dogs have not had any negative reactions to this shampoo, and I could not be more pleased. I have yet to try other shampoos from this brand, but they are for sure on my list! This has to be one of my favorite shampoos that I have tried not only for my own dogs but for clients dogs as well. What are some of your favorite dog shampoos? What do you think of earthbath, and have you tried this shampoo? Let me know in the comment section down below! Also, any questions, comments, or concerns, feel free to leave them as well! I would love to hear from you! Till next time! PS. I’m trying to shorten my posts, but let me know if you like the long posts, or try to keep them on the shorter side like this one!
