EcoStore USA Hypoallergenic Pet Shampoo review

You already know I hate it when we have to use any kind of chemicals in our home, I try to search out products that aren’t harsh to our environment. That’s why EcoStore’s slogan caught my eye; “No Nasty Chemicals”. I like that! I like that a lot! I also like that ecostore USA is using, and actively researching, sustainable ingredients that come from plants and minerals, ingredients that are environmentally-safe, biodegradable and non-toxic to both our homes and our planet.

When EcoStore asked me to do a review I knew exactly what to try. Our dog Ginger has sensitive skin, not to mention smelly skin. The pet shampoos we’ve been using seem to dry her out even more. The description for their Soothing Hypoallergenic Pet Shampoo fit Ginger’s needs perfectly:

Gentle on itchy, sensitive skin, our Herbal Fresh Shampoo is expertly designed to penetrate safely into the skin where it is most effective.  Mild enough for frequent use.  Safe for dogs, cats, puppies and kittens over 6 weeks of age.

That mild enough for frequent use part is important! We had given Ginger a bath 2 days before our review product came. I was afraid that giving her another so soon would irritate her skin but we went ahead with it anyway. It absolutely did not dry her skin out! She had been itchy from shedding but since her soothing bath hasn’t even lifted a leg to get at an itch this week! I couldn’t believe how much more dirt and hair came out of her since we thought she was still clean from that earlier bath, guess we were wrong! Yuck! We’re on day four  since using EcoStore’s shampoo and Ginger still smells good! That’s a miracle! I know Ginger’s happy because she’s been allowed on the couch for more than one day after her bath :) More couch time = dog in heaven.

Both Super Genius and I were impressed by how great the shampoo smelled. With ingredients like honey, honey and almond natural fragrance and chamomile, sage and calendula (how DO you say that!) extracts it can’t help smelling good! Super Genius thought it was a little on the thin side so you do need to be careful not to get carried away because a little does go a long way. It definitely lathers up well and was very easy to rinse out. Super G. says he loved that because it usually takes a long time to rinse Ginger with the other shampoo we were using, it had a sticky feel unlike the EcoStore brand.

At $13.00 for a 12 fluid ounce bottle we think it’s a good value. We used about 1-2 Tbs for our 65lb beast so this bottle will last us a long time. Look Ginger’s shiny!

    Sounds like a great product! And I'm sure it works much better than the baby shampoo we've been using on the pets!

    Now if I had a dog, this would be perfect, but I don't. However my mom does, she has several. She uses baby shampoo now, I am gonna tell her about this product.

    I love that you are using chemical-free shampoo on your pet. with all the cancers and illnesses animals get and die early, something like this may just help them live longer. We also use the ecostoreusa products with our kids and they smell really nice.

    I definitely think you should give this product a try. We've used baby shampoo in the past before and this EcoStore product does a much better job. I can't believe that Ginger STILL smells good!

    Our Ginger is sensitive as well, she hasn't been scratching at night and waking me up like usual so I am loving this product!

    Wish we had known about this company when we had our Sphynx cat. We had a terrible time finding products that didn't dry out his skin!

    Selecting the most appropriate Dog Shampoo can make a an entire world of difference. Doing a search online and at local merchants pertaining to Dog shampoo for Rover might be frustrating. Just like humans, selecting the right sort for your pet dogs skin type varies from dog to dog.
