Our Little Beast range was created after extensive research and in line with our company mission- to make natural soap accessible to all. Human or canine, we’re proud to say we developed our range with a passion for creating high-quality skincare using only natural ingredients- and with our pets at heart. As part of our efforts to share with you the causes and beliefs that inspire us daily, we wanted to delve a little deeper into specific products, to create a FAQ you can refer to when you need it. So, this week we’re focusing on a product that many of you already know and love. We present to you the Little Beast Shampoo Bar: everything you need to know.
What is the organic Little Beast Shampoo bar made from?
Our pet shampoo bar has calming Lavender Essential Oil, moisturising Apricot Oil and a hint of ground coffee beans to help naturally repel fleas. We only use natural ingredients and it’s totally free from detergents, SLS, alcohol, parabens, Sorbates, silicones, sulphites, and preservatives.
How do you use it?
Rinse your pet with warm water and simply rub the pet shampoo bar unto the coat until you have a rich, silky lather. Massage in before rinsing well and towel dry.
Why does my pet’s coat look tacky after washing?
This is totally normal- and due to natural oils that will be absorbed, leaving your dog’s coat to dry normally and smell amazing! In contrast, synthetic shampoos tend to strip the hair, which results in a different appearance.
Why use a bar shampoo?
The Little Beast Pet Shampoo Bar trumps a liquid shampoo because it eliminates the risk of spills at bath time, plus its also great for car boot and travelling too. In addition and as with human bar soap; it’s practical, has less packaging, less wastage and it lasts a lot longer too, making it a more economic choice all round.
Is the bar soap safe to use all over?
Little Beast Pet Shampoo Bar was rated 10/10 by Dogs Monthly Magazine and can be used all over (avoiding the eyes) on all coat types or use just to use to rinse muddy paws or dirty patches…or on anything more unmentionable!
Is the bar soap safe to use on cats?
Yes! We only use natural ingredients, so our Little Beast range is safe for use on cats too. In fact, the Little Breast range can be used to wash any animal with fur- but if you’re unsure, check with your vet to be on the safe side.
How often should I bath my dog?
As a general guide, we recommend you give your dog a bath once a week and use the Little Beast pet shampoo bar once a month. Of course, if your dog is a fan of tackling muddy puddles while out on walks, you might want to adopt a different schedule!
What if my dog hates bath time?
Every dog has a unique personality and if your beloved furry pal isn’t a fan of bath time, then rest assured you’re not alone. Some love it, some hate it. But grooming and maintaining a regular bath time routine is an essential part of being a dog owner, so it really is something you need to tackle head-on- for everyone’s sake! We wrote a handy blog post on how to bath your dog- please take a read for some tips and ideas on how to make it as stress-free as possible. Staying consistent in your routine is a great way to normalise bath time. Good luck!
Any tips for long-haired dogs?
Long-haired dogs require lots of brushing to eliminate tangles and to clear away anything that might have become tangled in the hair. This is vital to ensure their coats stay glossy and healthy, so don’t skip it! Make brushing a part of your daily routine to stay on top of it.
After bathing, make sure you spend plenty of time on drying, as longer hair tends to hold more water and can be uncomfortable for your dog.
