Does your dog have cracked paws or a dry nose? Or do you live in a climate with extreme heat or cold? Minor scratches or skin irritation? Let me give you some information on how the ingredients in my Paw Butter & Skin Salve can help your dogs. 🐶
Coconut oil can add moisture to your dog’s skin and prevent flaking. It also helps freshen up a dog’s coat. Since coconut oil can be given orally, you don’t have to worry if dogs lick themselves after it’s been applied to their coats. * Lauric Acid – anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties of coconut oil. The lauric acid is also supposed to fight off viruses. * Topical Benefits – It's been known to help skin conditions like hot spots, bites, stings, or itchy, dry skin.
Shea Butter is actually very safe for dogs (even edible) and can help a wide variety of skin problems including: * Cracked paws * Itchy fur * Red bumps * Irritation * Dry scaly skin * Dull fur * Small cuts and wounds Shea butter soothes, softens, and hydrates skin. In addition, shea butter is a natural sun protectant and moisturizes and conditions the fur to maintain and boost shine all while being totally 100% dog-safe. Known for its moisturizing and emollient qualities, shea butter is rich in vitamins and fatty acids that penetrate deeply and leave a smooth, silky finish. This creates a protective layer that can minimize or stop itching, moisture skin and heal inflammation.
Beeswax is known to help heal chapped skin, making it the perfect ingredient for a homemade balm. It adds a waxy layer to your dogs skin giving it some added protection. It can also give your dog some extra traction during slick months.
Sunflower oil is loaded with Omega-6’s which help stimulate hair and skin growth and promote a healthy immune system. Some people may not believe that fatty acids are good for you and your pup, but they’re essential for living. Dogs don’t produce the same amount of fatty acids as humans do, so they need a little extra help. Sunflower oil is great for hydrating your pup’s fur and keeping their coat soft and silky. It also helps hydrate their paws when the cold weather makes them dry and cracked. It contains vitamins A, B, D and E as well as healthy minerals for your dog’s skin and fur. This array of vitamins and minerals act as antioxidants that can regenerate skin cells, and even help get rid of acne causing bacteria. If you’re worried about their fur thinning or falling out, sunflower oil will help to strengthen and rejuvenate their fur. It’s also good for soothing and healing minor wounds as well as protecting your dog from the sun. The best part? Sunflower oil is light and non-greasy and absorbs into the skin easily. It won’t clog or block pores!
