We praise the benefits of natural products for humans, but did you know that natural products can also be used on our hairballs? That’s right! If we use them for ourselves, why not use the best on animals? In this article we will explain the benefits of natural products for your pets and give you our advice on how to choose your products.
Why choose natural products?
Have you ever wondered why our pets also have problems with allergies or eczema?
Just like us, they have sensitive skin and skin that can become fragile quite quickly. We don’t necessarily think about it, but they are even more sensitive to products than we are. Just like us, what we give them to eat or put on their skin will have repercussions on the outside. For example, feeding them the wrong food can cause health problems or give them a duller, less vibrant coat. If you use chemicals that may be harmful to the animal, skin or health problems may also occur. Animals can also suffer from reactions to products that are too irritating or contain harmful substances.
This is why natural products are also essential for our hairballs. Especially when it comes to hygiene. They need to be washed to prevent possible health problems or even diseases. And what could be better than grooming them naturally so as not to take any risks? It’s even better when it’s a question of labelled products, because these are products that have been checked beforehand and that must respect precise criteria.
Moreover, as an animal lover, you want to do more for the environment and the ecosystem? By opting for natural hygiene products, for example, you are doing something for the environment and in particular for marine species! Yes, because don’t forget that the product you use is washed away and can therefore pollute the environment. Why should marine animals be subjected to the toxic substances that we use in our products? With natural products, you don’t pollute the water or the planet. The same goes for the packaging, which is eco-friendly when it comes to green brands. They are very often recycled and recyclable.
By opting for all the other natural products relating to food or pet care, you are supporting brands that work daily for the well-being of the planet and the environment. In all cases, the advantage of something natural is not only in the product itself but also in everything that surrounds it. The commitments and values of a brand, the materials used for production, the components, the packaging… Yes, you will often find values in common with your own!
