This hydrating balm is ideal for your dog's sore or cracked paws, snout, and calluses. This premium balm is specifically formulated for dogs and is absorbed quickly for optimal benefits. Waterproof, gently scented, and ideal for sensitive areas with its blend of all-natural cold-pressed oils, shea butter, Vitamin E natural and 100% pure essential oils, and cellular plant extracts. This toxin-free, quality product uses natural ingredients and won't disrupt the epidermal layer. The epidermal layer function is to provide a barrier to protect the skin from bacterial and yeast infections, lesions, dehydration, pollutants, and allergens. Through sheer determination and passion for dogs and pure green chemistry, Essential Dog worked in conjunction with veterinary chemists, naturopaths, and homeopaths. A plant-based formulation free from steroids, preservatives, silicones, phthalates, artificial fillers, colors, fragrances, and aroma chemicals often found in many essential oils and "natural" products.
