“As a former dog and cat groomer, I certainly have the products that I know, am familiar, and use of a frequent basis. I certainly do have my favorite shampoos and conditioners on which to fall back, however I wanted to try the new line from the Fur and Body Shampoo Collection when grooming a favorite client, Rosa, recently.
While Rosa is one of the sweetest pit-boxer mixes you will ever meet, she has always been very stressed when I bath her. When I opened the bottle the natural scents of the oils practically jump out of the bottles they released relaxing aromas to keep the bathing experience relaxing and enjoyable. While I chose Autumn Lily, all three scents, (Orange Citrus and Alpine Meadows) contain organic aloe vera and jojoba oil that left the coat naturally glowing.
From a consumer stand point as well, I felt good with this product as it is a family-owned company Made in the USA and packaged in fully recyclable bottles of 25% post-consumer resin.
Here’s a quick rundown of the major features of Fur+Body:
- cold-pressed essential oils, organic aloe vera and jojoba oil
- developed from a vegan, botanical platform
- free from chemicals or harsh preservatives including phlalates, phosphates, TDA, dyes, parabens, DEA sulfates and synthetic fragrances
- pH balanced for dogs and are not suitable for cats – humans may use freely
Rosa may have been the first dog I have tried this product on, however, after seeing the calming effect it had while bathing and the luster her coat had after, she certainly will not be the last!”
