Green Pawz All Natural Wash Shampoo Review
I have been really lucky these days with dodging some dog baths. My friend Yumi rescued me this time and let her Mom give her a bath using Green Pawz All Natural Wash! Thank you, Yumi! I owe you one.
Green Pawz was kind enough to send my Mom a bottle of their All Natural Wash-Lavender and Aloe dog shampoo. I have to admit, it does smell nice. But I’m still glad Yumi took the bath instead of me. This shampoo is another one that is healthier than your average dog shampoos found in the big chain stores. That’s what we shoot for, fewer chemicals, with less chance of skin irritations and toxic effects.
Lavender has many healing properties. It helps repel fleas and ticks and even has calming properties. You can check out Mom’s article on Safe Flea Control here. Lavender and aloe help moisturize dog fur. The calendula, chamomile, and white tea are soothing.
Sorry, Yumi, I think it’s time to try Green Pawz All Natural Wash. The Green Pawz shampoo had a very nice lather, and it was easy to wash Yumi. You could definitely smell the lavender, and I think Yumi enjoyed that. The lather was nice, and Yumi’s Mom felt it was doing a great job at getting out the dirt from Yumi’s coat.
As expected with dog shampoos that are free of harsh chemicals, it had a sticky feel when rinsing out. It did rinse out well and cleanly. But again, as you’ve been reading our non-toxic dog shampoo reviews, it is something to get used to. All the dog shampoo rinsed out well and once Yumi was dry, the stickiness was gone.
Yumi’s Mom said that Yumi was softer than usual, and she was very pleased with the results. She also said Yumi’s fur was not frizzy like other dog shampoos leave it, and her top hair was much more manageable than usual. They both really enjoyed Green Pawz All Natural Wash! Lavender + Aloe.
Time to take a look at the cool stuff about Green Pawz shampoo. The dog shampoo has been formulated to be free of parabens, phosphates, phthalates, DEA, synthetic dyes, and perfumes. pH balanced for dogs and 100% biodegradable.
Green Pawz All Natural Wash! Lavender + Aloe: Ingredients: Purified Water, Sodium Myristoyl Sarcosinate, Sodium Cocoamphoacetate, Cocamidopropyl Hydroxysultaine, EO Essential Oil Blend [Lavender (Lavandula Officinalis) Essential Oil, Lavandin (Lavandula Hybrida) Essential Oil], EO Organic Herbal Blend [Organic Aloe Vera (Aloe Barbadensis) Leaf, Organic Chamomile (Matricaria Recutita) Flower Extract, Organic Calendula (Calendula Officinalis) Flower Extract, and Organic White Tea (Camelia Sinensis) Leaf Extract], Citric Acid, Sodium Phytate, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin
Mom always looks up cosmetic type ingredients on EWG’s Skin Deep’s database. This is her starting point when analyzing ingredients in my dog shampoos. She’s not a scientist, so she needs a little help. All the ingredients came out in the green (good), with the exception of Phenoxyethanol which was yellow (cautions). Green Pawz All Natural Wash! Lavender and Aloe was a great shampoo for lathering, cleaning, and controlling the frizz. The concern is the one ingredient Phenoxyethanol.
Pros: Nice lather, worked well, use of organic ingredients, natural flea and tick repellent, smells great, economically priced, manufactured in their own facility in the US.Cons: You might need to get used to the texture when washing out, the use of Phenoxyethanol
Cons: You might need to get used to the texture when washing out, the use of Phenoxyethanol
