Why buy Earthbath when I can just wash my pet with soap or baby shampoo?
Believe it or not, your pet's skin is actually more sensitive than a baby's because it is covered with fur. Earthbath shampoo is pH balanced to be milder than soap or even baby shampoo. Soap can be especially drying to a pet's skin and leave residue in the fur, causing itching, dandruff and sheping. Soap is also more likely to wash off any topical flea preparations, while these soap-free formulas are perfectly safe.
What is the difference between soap and detergent?
Both clean well, but see the question above. All cleansing ingredients can be classified as detergents and soap is one of them. The best explanation is by analogy: cars and airplanes are both means of transportation, but each functions differently. Soap and plant or vegetable-based cleansers are both detergents, but have different chemical compositions and health properties.
Is earthbath safe to use on my other pets - like ferrets, rabbits, horses, etc.
Absolutely, although Earthbest do make shampoos specifically for horses' special needs for sunscreen and pest repellency. The most important criterion for pet shampoo is that it be mild and pH-balanced. All Earthbest products are formulated with the mildest ingredients available and are pH-balanced for safety and mildness for animals' sensitive skin. If you decide to wash a small animal, it is suggested you first dilute the shampoo into an equal amount of water to increase further the mildness, or to use a grooming wipe. Happy sudsing!
Why are Earthbath products paraben free and phthalate free?
Earthbath products are paraben and phthalate free because they're committed to making products as safe and gentle as possible. Parabens are a group of chemicals that have been widely used as preservatives in human and pet shampoos, but in 1998, the US Environmental Protection Agency released a report stating that parabens - butyl, ethyl, methyl and propyl varieties - demonstrated "estrogenic activity." This means that these chemicals could possibly imitate hormones found in the human body and have an adverse effect on the endocrine system when absorbed by the skin or flushed into the drinking supply. Phthalates are molecules found in some fragrances which have been linked to birth defects. While these scientific findings can be controversial, they have decided to play it safe for the health of their customers.
Do I need to dilute Earthbath before using it?
No. Earthbath is very mild and is blended to be used full strength. Should you wish to make your shampoo go further, you may dilute it up to 10 parts water to 1 part shampoo.
Why doesn't Earthbath have the USDA Organic Seal?
They don't want it for grooming products, nor should you. To the best of Earthbath's knowledge, to have the USDA Organic Seal, a grooming solution must contain 100% organic SOAP. Earthbath gives you an unconditional promise that they'll never put soap into any Earthbath product. Soap dries out animals' skin and coats, leaves residue in the fur that can cause irritation and allergies, and it will wash off topical flea applications. Earthbath products presently meet the USDA "made with organic ingredients" requirements and are well down the path to achieving a coveted organic certification used in the environmentally innovative European Union.
Can earthbath be used with flea control products?
Yes, all of our formulas are compatible with the popular topical flea applications such as Frontline™, Advantage™, and K9 Advantix™.
How often should I bathe my dog?
It is not recommended to bathe your dog more than once or twice a week. Dogs have natural skin oils that keep their skin healthy and more frequent bathing can remove more than a healthy amount of skin oils.
Either I am allergic to dogs or cats, or some people who visit my home are. Is there anything I can do to reduce the human/animal allergic reaction?
Human/dog and human/cat allergies are quite common. Earthbath suggests regularly using grooming wipes to control dander, shedding and residual saliva that remain in dog's and cat's fur as a first line of defense against allergies.
Is Earthbath safe to use on my puppy or kitten?
The products designated as Puppy grooming products are safe, gentle and pH balanced for mildness as well. Across the product line, unless otherwise specified, all Earthbath products are safe for dogs, cats, puppies and kittens over the age of 6 weeks.
At Earthbath, they design all of products with the health of your fine furry friend in mind. Pets are "kids," best friends and cuddly bedmates all rolled into one fun-filled furry package, and they deserve only nature's finest blends of cleansing potions and sumptuous, effective essences. That's why Earthbath products are totally natural, non toxic, paraben free, phthalate free, and phosphate free. Their products are made in the USA with human-grade ingredients and pure essential oils, with none of the artificial colors and fragrances present in some other brands.
Earthbath's comprehensive line of totally natural shampoos, grooming wipes, and spritzes offer Heavenly Scented solutions for the unique needs of your pet, including everyday cleansing and coat conditioning, relief from itching or hot spots, combating pests, skin sensitivity or allergy, odor relief, and more. Earthbath formulas include Heavenly Scented natural essential oils that will make your pet look and smell better than ever before while naturally solving your pet's most pesky skin problems.
All Earthbath products are soap-free and pH balanced to be ultra mild on your pet's skin. Soap can dry skin, remove necessary skin oils, and leave drying residue. pH is important for mildness and to prevent skin sensitivity. Just to be sure, Earthbath's CEO Paul personally tests every product... on himself! (While this may sound just a little bit silly, we can honestly say that he's never smelled or looked better!) Of course Earthbath products are all cruelty free and contain no animal ingredients or byproducts. Ever.
Paul Armstrong founded Earthwhile Endeavors, Inc. in 1995 after a chance encounter with three buddies in San Francisco who had developed a natural, effective pet shampoo but didn't know what to do with it. Well, Paul knew a great product when he saw one (as did his cat Miles), and he was determined to share it with pet lovers everywhere. This is how Earthbath was born.
From the beginning, Earthbath has been developed and manufactured in California with only the safest, finest ingredients from nature. From humble roots and a local following--based on the principles of purity and efficacy--Earthbath has grown from four shampoos to a comprehensive line of totally natural shampoos, wipes, spritzes, and grooming foams that are sold and used by conscientious animal lovers across the nation and around the world.
Everyone at Earthbath has a genuine love for pets and concern for the environment. These passions are at the heart of everything they do, from the thought they put into their products to their commitment to putting principles on par with profits.
