Bring out the shine in your animals fur, with avocado oil, organic coconut oil, and organic coconut milk. Aloe vera soothes, while activated charcoal removes bacteria and deodorizes. The blend of essential oils are safe for both dogs & cats, and are chosen for their abilities to ward off fleas, ticks, and other bugs. **Also works as a human hiking/camping soap to help keep the mosquitos away!**
What Does “Saponified” Mean?
Saponification is the chemical reaction used in the soap making process. When the oils and fats are combined with lye (a strong alkali) they are called saponified. At the end of the process the lye is all gone, and you are left with just soap. To learn more about this, have a look at my blog post on the subject.
About “Filler” Oils
Cheaper oils are often used as a “filler” but I don’t use them because they don’t add much nutrient value to the soap.
I don’t use palm oil in any of my products, since its production is harmful to the environment, destroying critical habitat for many endangered species, as well as being linked with the eviction of forest-dwelling peoples. Find out more here.
I only use high quality oils and butters that are filled with beneficial nutrients for the skin. Learn more about this on my blog.
