First time I used way to much on my dog. It’s really is think and needs to be watered down but wow it did an excellent job on my dog. The deodorizer I find it difficult to actually place it on the skin. But it did help a spot where he’s been scratching and had a small raw spot. I will difinerly buy some more when I need it.
First time using Skout’s Honor and I love it. We have 2Westies and 2Norwich Terriers so bathtime is like a carwash. Shampoo was very easy to use and rinse and the conditioner has left them soft and scented (Hoeysuckle) And no itchies !!
The product smells great & I was excited about adding probiotics to my dogs skin but all your products contain phenoxyethanol! " Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) on phenoxyethanol states that it can cause skin and lung irritation. It's also toxic to the kidneys, nervous system, and liver, and repeated, long-term exposure can cause organ damage. It notes that toxic effects can occur through inhalation, skin exposure, and ingestion." I cut this out of all my bath products, why I would it on my pet? I gave my kit away to a friend who didn't care about the side effects.
Hi Sarah, We appreciate and totally understand your concern with phenoxyethanol and would never push you to use a product with an ingredient you don't agree with. We just want to be clear and upfront as to why we chose to use this ingredient (less than 1%) in our grooming products. Most studies that have found significant negative health impacts from phenoxyethanol are based on full-strength or high-dose exposures. In real life usage, exposures are quite small. That's why it's approved at levels up to 1%. We're not trying to write-off concerns about this ingredient - honestly, it's not perfect, but there are not many preservatives that are. Even alcohol can be harsh and has it's limitations. We chose phenoxyethanol because it is a paraben and formaldehyde-free preservative that plays an important role in preserving plant and water-based products. Other preservatives prove to not be quite as strong at preventing bad bacteria and fungi from contaminating products. Effective preservatives are vital for ensuring safety! Some of the "natural" alternatives to phenoxyethanol are actually contaminated with worse ingredients, such as parabens, which are well known to case skin irritation. I hope that helps to explain a little why we chose it. We are always on the look-out for safe and effective alternatives as well!
