Safe Pet-Specific Shampoo featuring Earthbath

natural & cruelty-free pet-specific shampoo _ smelltheroses.com (1)

This post is for all my green-lifestyle pet parents out there! I wanted to share a bit of useful information concerning pet-specific shampoo and how to find one that meets your pet’s needs.

I learned the hard way the importance of pet-specific shampoo after I followed the advice of a popular green beauty blogger who recommended using Calia shampoo on pets. When I ran out of my pet shampoo, I foolishly decided to take her advice without doing my own research. My chihuahua mix, Belle, was unaffected but my Jack Russell, Ollie, developed extreme itchiness immediately after his bath that lasted a solid 2 days. I felt SO guilty to have put him through that but I learned a valuable lesson and it led me to write this post. I hope you find this information helpful!

pH scale | pet shampoo

Why Pet-specific Shampoo is Important:

Our pets rely on their hair/fur for protection because their actual skin is extremely sensitive. Their skin can be so sensitive that even baby shampoos can be too harsh for them.

Humans and Pets Have Different Skin pH:

Here’s a quick middle school chemistry refresher: On the standard pH scale, any value <7 is considered acidic while any value >7 is considered alkaline (or basic). A value of 7 is considered neutral. A human’s skin has a pH value of 5.5 while our pets’ skin has a pH near 6.5 – 7.5. In order words, a human’s skin is more acidic than that of a cat or dog. 

This explains why it’s important to never use topical human products on your pet unless instructed to do so by your vet. Our shampoos and conditioners are designed to match our skin’s acidic pH and therefore could be harmful if used on your pet’s neutral skin. (Source: earthbath)

Possible Dangers of Human Shampoo on Pets:

  • Skin Infections – Due to their acidity, human shampoos and sItchy Dog Cartoon | Pet Shampoooaps strip away our pets’ acid mantle that is supposed to protect their skin. Without this protective barrier, bacteria, parasites, and viruses can flourish and ultimately lead to skin infections and/or wounds.
  • Dry, Irritated, Itchy Skin – Applying an acidic human shampoo to your pet’s neutral skin will cause burning and dryness. The more acidic the product, the worse this will be. When the skin becomes dry, your dog or cat will scratch at his/her skin, creating tiny abrasions that bacteria and germs can invade. This makes your pet that much more susceptible to skin infections.
  • Overall Discomfort – We love our pets and want them to live happy, comfortable lives (they are family after all). You know how uncomfortable it feels when you get a sunburn or have a dry scalp so why risk putting your pet through that? (Source: Pet MD)

Choosing a Pet-specific Shampoo:

If you are a fan of green beauty and home products, you understand the multitude of benefits to a non-toxic lifestyle. If you wouldn’t use a chemical-filled product for yourself or child, why not do the same for your pet? I’m not saying you have to spend hundreds of dollars on your pet (although I totally don’t judge you if you do – I’m a passionate dog mom myself), but spending a little extra on a quality product will have nothing but a positive impact on your beloved pet!

pH Balance is Key!

Look for pet-specific shampoos that advertise a neutral pH or state they are “pH balanced” for pets. Reputable brands will advertise this on the bottle or have the information listed on their website. My favorite clean, vegan, & cruelty-free pet-safe shampoo is from earthbath!

Red-flag Ingredients to Avoid: 🚫

I doubt you will be surprised by this list of red-flag ingredients for pets because it overlaps with those for humans. Although the FDA claims these ingredients are safe in low doses, I personally find them unnecessary and choose to avoid them.

  • Artifical fragrance – hormone disruptor; often contain phthalates (listed below)
    • Examples: parfum, fragrance
  • Parabens (preservative) – endocrine system disrupter; mimic hormones; linked to allergic reactions in dogs
    • Examples: methylparaben, ethylparaben, propylparaben, & butylparaben
  • Phthalates (solvent, dissolving agent) – endocrine system disrupter; mimic hormones; linked to thyroid issues, liver cancer, breast cancer, diabetes, & obesity
    • Examples: diethylphthalate (DEP), dibutylphthalate (DBP), dimethylphthalate (DMP)
  • Sulfates (emulsifier) – skin irritant; pulls most of the natural oil from your pet’s hair and skin which has an extreme drying effect
    • Examples: Sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS), Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES), & Ammonium Lauryl Sulfate (ALS)

Fulfill Your Pet’s Needs 🐶🐱

Just like humans, pets can have varying degrees of skin sensitivity meaning no one shampoo will work for all pets. Also, our pets come in all sorts of hair and fur so it’s ideal to pick a shampoo that fulfills your individual pet’s needs.


My Favorite Pet-Specific Shampoo

  • In the years since becoming a vegetarian, I have swapped out all my leather products for vegan alternatives (read my post about vegan leather to learn why). I had a similar Michael Kors leather jacket that I was in love with so when I saw this vegan jacket on Lulu’s I fell in love. A cute vegan leather jacket with my favorite pair of distressed jeans is one of my go-to fall outfits.

Vegan Leather Bag | smelltheroses.com

3. Madeline Mini Bucket | Angela Roi

  • Shop This Bag: Bordeaux (pictured) | Other Colors: Black, Cloud

  • Ever since Angela Roi launched their latest collection, I have had my eye on this bucket bag. I love the deep red color (called bordeaux) mixed with the gold hardware. It’s the perfect color to carry you from fall into the holiday season. Best of all, this bag is made of one of the highest quality vegan leathers I’ve ever come across.

  • Shop This Product: Pumpkin Peel

  • What gets you more in the mood for fall than pumpkin?! From carving pumpkins to eating pumpkin pie, we have found so many ways to utilize this amazing fruit (yes, pumpkin is a fruit – don’t worry, I didn’t know either).  Loaded with Enzymes, Antioxidants, Zinc, Iron and Vitamins C and K, pumpkin is amazing for your skin. This product from Erin’s Faces has rave reviews so it is at the top of my must-try list. 🎃

Vegan Over The Knee Boots | smelltheroses.com

6. Issac Black Vegan Suede Over the Knee Boots | Steve Madden

  • Shop These Boots: Black Over the Knee

  • Over the knee boots are such a fall staple so it’s no surprise I had to include a pair on my fall wish list. I was surprised to see these boots are made from 100% man-made materials making them vegan-friendly!

Vegan Suede Booties | smelltheroses.com

7. Marissa Light Cement Taupe Vegan Suede Ankle Booties | Lulu’s

8. Amaia Black Suede Lace-Up Ankle Booties | Lulu’s

  • Shop These Booties: Black

  • I know these are the 3rd pair of shoes on this list but when I saw the lace-up back I had to include them! 😍 As with the other shoes on this list, these are 100% vegan!

Lily Lolo Eyeshadow | smelltheroses.com

9. Laid Care Eye Palette | Lily Lolo

  • Shop This Product: Eyeshadow Palette

  • This eye palette from Lily Lolo has great reviews and just happens to contain so many perfect fall shades. I’m not a big eyeshadow girl but I like to use a little on special occasions so I know this palette would be a great addition to my makeup collection.

Lauren B Beauty Cruelty-free Nail Polish | smelltheroses.com

10. House of Blues Nail Polish | Lauren B Beauty

  • Shop This Shade: House of Blues

  • There is something so edgy and chic about black nail polish. It goes with everything and is perfect for the fall. This polish from Lauren B Beauty is actually not totally black but instead an extremely dark blue. As with all their polishes, it is cruelty-free and 7-free! 💅

Lauren B Beauty Cruelty-free Nail Polish | smelltheroses.com

11. Laurel Canyon Lover | Lauren B Beauty

  • Shop This Shade: Laurel Canyon Lover

  • When I saw this color it immediately made me think of fall! This 7-free/cruelty-free polish from Lauren B Beauty is the perfect balance between a true red and burgundy. This shade could easily transition from fall into the holiday season. 💅

Uptown Lip Velvet | smelltheroses.com

12. Uptown Lip Velvet | Clove + Hallow

  • Shop This Shade: Uptown

  • I love a beautiful matte lip for the fall and have had my eye on this specific one ever since it was launched. These lip velvets from Clove + Hallow dry in a beautiful matte finish without drying out your lips. This specific shade keeps selling out before I can buy it! It is safe to say, this product is at the top of my wish list. 💄💋

Orgain Pumpkin Spice Protein | smelltheroses.com

13. Pumpkin Spice Vegan Protein Powder | Orgain

  • Shop on Amazon: Pumpkin Spice Protein

  • I have been so eager to try the pumpkin spice flavor of my favorite vegan protein powder! Luckily it is available on Amazon Prime (whoop whoop). Packed with 21g of plant-based protein, Orgain’s protein powders are a great way for us vegetarians to get enough protein in our diet. I have yet to try a flavor of Orgain I didn’t like so I know this pumpkin spice flavor must be delicious! 🎃

Osmia Pumpkin Facial Soap | smelltheroses.com

14. Pumpkin Facial Soap | Osmia Organics

  • Shop This Bar: Pumpkin

  • Here’s another great pumpkin infused facial product but this time it’s from Osmia Organics. This soap works as a mild exfoliator that leaves skin soft and nourished. Side Note: This product does contain honey so it is NOT vegan-friendly. 🎃

I hope you enjoyed my fall wish list! What fall products have you had your eye on? Let me know in the comments section below!

The Perfect Natural & Cruelty-Free Bubble Bath!

Bubble Bath Essentials via smelltheroses.com

Although I don’t recommend taking a bath frequently (not the most eco-friendly form of bathing), I do feel it’s okay to occasionally treat yourself to one! Few things help you destress as well as a warm bath with candles and a good book! 😌 (Fun fact: January 8th was National Bubble Bath Day!)

A warm bath is always nice on its own but there are several products I recommend if you want to take your bathing experience to the next level. As always, all of the products I feature are 100% cruelty-free and natural so you can feel good using them!

Disclaimer: This post is in no way sponsored by the featured brands. Some links are affiliate links. 

My Bath Essentials 🛀

Deep Steep | Classic Bubble Bath (Lemongrass-Jasmine) 

  • I did a lot of research to find the best natural & cruelty-free bubble bath and this product from Deep Steep definitely takes the crown! I bought the Lemongrass-Jasmine scent and found it really light and refreshing. You have to use a generous amount but your entire bath will become filled with bubbles that last for a good amount of time! Great for all ages!
  • Facts: No Animal Testing | Gluten Free | Non-GMO | Made in Small Batches
  • Ingredients: Organic Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Leaf Juice, Organic Cymbopogon Schoenanthus (Lemongrass) Extract, Jasminum Officinale (Jasmine) Flower Extract, Coco Glucoside, Organic Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Glycerin (Vegan), Aroma, Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C), Organic Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Caprylic Acid (Coconut Fatty Acid), Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract, Potassium Sorbate, Citric Acid

Beauty by Earth | Bath Bomb Gift Set (6-pack)

  • I first discovered these bath bombs in one of my Organic Bunny Boxes and immediately fell in love! Unlike other bath bombs, these are 100% natural and made without Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (a chemical used for foaming), artificial dyes, colorants, or synthetic fragrance (all found in the Lush Bath Bombs 😕). Even better, each bath bomb is designed to fulfill a different need. Options include Joint Relief, Bedtime Ritual, Just Relax, Get Well Soon, Muscle Relief, and Relaxing Detox. I love them all! These may not turn your bath all cool colors, but at least the ingredients will nourish your skin instead of harming it!
  • Facts: Non-GMO | Mostly Organic | No Animal Testing | Gluten-Free | Made in the USA
  • Ingredients: view here under “Additional Information”
  • PROMO CODE: “SMELLTHEROSES” saves you 15% in their online store!

Beauty by Earth | Konjac Body Sponge

  • I’m a huge fan of Konjac sponges and use one with facial cleanser to wash my face every night. They have worked wonders on my face so I was so excited when I saw Beauty by Earth made a larger sponge for your body. We often pay most attention to our faces and neglect the rest of our body’s skin. Made from the Konjac plant root fibers and infused with charcoal, these sponges allow you to naturally exfoliate/detoxify and rid your skin of dirt/grime. To use, soak the sponge for a few minutes, rub in a circular motion over your skin, squeeze out excess water and hang to dry in a well-ventilated area.
  • Facts: Vegan | Natural | No Animal Testing | Made in the USA
  • Ingredients: Konjac Glucomannan, Activated Bamboo Charcoal Powder
  • PROMO CODE: “SMELLTHEROSES” saves you 15% in their online store!

Bath Dreams | Luxury Bamboo Bathtub Caddy Tray with Extending Sides

  • This bath caddy is worth every penny. It may seem excessive, but it has made my bath-time experience so much better. With a special holder for a book/tablet and wine glass, this is the perfect organizer for all your non-waterproof items. It is constructed from 100% bamboo and has extending sides which allow it to fit most bathtubs. I use it to hold a candle, book, and my phone and absolutely adore it! I highly recommend a bath caddy if you do not have one already!

Shop them on Amazon:


Steps to the Perfect Bath Experience:

  1. Gather everything and anything you need for your bath (caddy, book, candle, wine, tablet, etc.)
  2. Set up your bathtub caddy.
  3. Fill your bath 1/2 way with warm water.
  4. Get in! 😌
  5. Drop in one of your Beauty by Earth Bath Bombs! Watch it fizz and turn your bath into a beautiful smelling little piece of heaven (video demonstration below!).
  6. Breathe deep and relax for as long as desired.
  7. When ready, pour in a generous amount of Deep Steep Bubble Bath! (I use about 1/5 of a 17-ounce bottle which fills my entire bath with bubbles!)
  8. Once your bath is full of bubbles, use your Beauty by Earth Konjac Body Sponge to wash and exfoliate your skin!
  9. Relax in your bubble bath until all your stress melts away 🙂

A Closer Look at Each Product:

This bath bomb gift set from Beauty by Earth comes in the cutest packaging and each bath bomb smell amazing. They are individually wrapped/labeled and have their corresponding ingredient list printed inside the box’s cover. You can keep them all for yourself or easily gift them to friends/family individually. You can also buy each bomb individually in their online store!

 

Each bath bomb is made with ingredients that serve a special purpose.For example, “muscle relief” contains organic sea clay, an ingredient often used in mud wraps to help relax and soothe tired/achy muscles!

How cute is this packaging!? You could easily add this to a home spa gift basket or pack it for a bath on vacation! Under the paper wrapper, the bath bomb is wrapped in a vacuum-sealed plastic to keep your bath bomb safe and intact!

This is what the “Relaxing Detox” bath bomb looks like completely unwrapped and ready to be used! All of their bath bombs are accented with essential oils and flower petals. Once dropped in your bath, they fizz and their beautiful aromas quickly fill the room. On the top half of my bath bomb, you can see one of the flower petals sticking out!

Here is a view of the gift box’s inside cover which lists out the ingredients in each bath bomb. As you can see, there are no hidden scary ingredients in these babies! Each ingredient serves a unique purpose and does so without harming you!

This is how the Beauty by Earth Konjac Body Sponge comes packaged. As with all Konjac sponges, when dry it feels hard as a rock. Once wettened or soaked, the sponge expands and becomes super soft but strong enough to exfoliate your skin. This Konjac sponge is 100% natural and infused with bamboo charcoal.

This picture makes me want to take another bath! How relaxing does this scene look and the tub isn’t even full of bubbles yet?! The stand-out item in this picture is definitely the bamboo bath caddy. Made from eco-friendly bamboo, this bath caddy has a place for all your bath-time essentials! The sides even expand for wider bath tubs.

Above you can see the little slot you can slide your wine glass into! (how cool!?) The candle shown here is the “smell the roses” scent from Carefull Candles.

How fun are these bath bombs! They work just like the main brand’s but without all the scary ingredients. They don’t turn your bath into a sea of colors but they do have little flower petals throughout which is a fun surprise! I recommend using 1 entire bath bomb per bath.

Did you ever think a completely natural bubble bath soap could make that many bubbles!? I am in love with this product from Deep Steep. It has amazing reviews online and I can definitely see why. As with most bubble baths, you have to use a generous amount (I used about 1/5 the bottle) but you end up with a tub FULL of beautiful NATURAL bubbles. This product is even great for kids.. who wants to be bathing their child in a sea of chemicals?? Also, the lemongrass – jasmine scent is so light and refreshing (some people felt their lavender scent was too strong).

 

This konjac sponge actually doubled in size once completely soaked! The video above shows it in action. It is super soft (safe for sensitive skin) but strong enough to thoroughly exfoliate your skin. After using, my skin felt much smoother; the same way it does after I use a konjac sponge on my face! I definitely prefer this sponge to a regular plastic luffa.


I hope you enjoyed this post and will try some of these amazing products!

Beauty by Earth was generous enough to offer my readers 15% off their online purchase with promo code “SMELLTHEROSES”! (shop their online store here)

Way Out Wax: Clean Air! Giveaway


ABOUT WAY OUT WAX

Way Out Wax has been creating non-toxic and environmentally conscious products in the Green Mountains of Northern Vermont for over 20 years (way before it was the trendy thing to do). Unlike other candle and home fragrance companies, you will not find a single chemical additive, fragrance, or dye in any of their products! This is a company that is passionate about making products that reflect an individual’s connection with the environment.

Their Ingredients:

  • Scents: Way Out Wax believes the healing botanical essences found in nature should be easily incorporated into everyday life. That is why their products are scented using only 100% pure/natural essential oils without any dyes or synthetic fragrances.
  • Wax: Their candles are composed of 100% natural non-GMO soy wax. The soybeans used to make their wax are sustainably farmed and free from pesticides and herbicides. To top it all off, their candles are also 100% biodegradable.
  • Animal Testing: None of their ingredients or final products are testing on animals. Their products are Leaping Bunny certified cruelty-free! 🐰

Their Commitment to the Environment:

Reduce. Reuse. Recycle:

Way Out Wax believes that “healthy products make for healthy people and a healthy planet”. On top of using natural & sustainable materials, they recycle whenever possible throughout their manufacturing process. They even go as far as reusing packing materials they received from their raw supplies for shipping their customers’ outbound packages.  Even their shipping boxes are often second-hand from a company that sources “overruns” and other gently-used boxes. That is some serious dedication! 🙌

You can continue the reduce/reuse/recycle practice when you’re finished with your products too. Their candle jars and travel tins are easy to clean out and reuse as a storage container.

Febreze vs. Way Out Wax:

We all want our home to smell good. For years I used Febreze and Bath & Body Works home fragrances to prevent my house from smelling like a puppy infested stinky sock land 😂 However when I started researching what was in these products and their brand’s animal-testing policy, I immediately had to stop. There is no requirement for companies to disclose ingredients in air fresheners so it is close to impossible to know exactly what is in these products without third-party testing. According to the Environment Working Group, when they tested our beloved Febreze they found AcetaldehydeBHT, artificial fragrance, and propylene glycol, all linked to cancer, allergens, & developmental toxicity. These are just a fraction of the chemicals found in Febreze – kinda scary! While Febreze advertises they will “purify” your air, they are actually just contributing to indoor air pollution.

Way Out Wax: Clean Air Products

If you want the benefits of Febreze without the hidden dangers, I highly recommend the Clean Air Collection from Way Out Wax. I had read amazing reviews for their candles so I was really excited when I found out they had an air-purification line! I have been using it for the past month and have noticed a HUGE difference in the freshness of my bedroom’s air. My dogs sleep in my bed so I always feel like my room smells like them. These products have been a big help in keeping odors at bay! I wish I had found them sooner!!

Candle:

This product is great for gradual odor elimination. The neutral scent is very light and refreshing, so it works for all individuals’ tastes and for all times of the year. I like that I can light the candle and its clean scent will slowly disburse throughout my bedroom.
Way Out Wax Odor Candle

Odor Neutralizing Spray:

These sprays are great for targeting specific areas of a room. I use the Lavender scent to spray my bed in the AM after my puppies have slept in it all night. They would also work great as an addition to your gym bag to spray your clothes or yoga mat after an intense workout.Way Out Wax Odor Spray

So How Does It Work?:

Clean Air is 100% natural and Scientifically-Proven to eliminate odors by attracting odor particles on a molecular level, attaching to them and neutralizing the unwanted smell.
