Bath time for the corgis is always a bit of an adventure. Eve doesn’t mind baths, but Ty despises them. He gets pretty impatient about shampooing and he doesn’t hold still very well to get lathered up. He also tends to get itchy skin from allergies and needs shampoos formulated for that.
The Honest Kitchen made bath time much easier for the corgis and I when they sent me one of their new Sparkle Bars Shampoo bars to try. As a beauty blogger, I have tried shampoo bars on myself before (I love the ones from Lush), but had not tried one for dogs. The Honest Kitchen sent me the Diatomaceous Earth, Calendula, Comfrey and Aloe bar. This bar is formulated for dogs with skin irritation, hot spots and itching. That is Ty right now with his allergies! It is formulated with a calming combination of silica-rich diatomaceous earth, healing calendula and anti-fungal comfrey.
I gave Ty a bath with the bar and loved it for several reasons. First, the bar lathered very well and easily. Instead of having to rub liquid shampoo on a squirming dog, I could just rub the bar all over him, which was much easier. Second, everything rinsed off pretty well too, while liquid shampoo sometimes does not rinse off as quickly as I would like. Third, I love the ingredient list, with lots of moisturizing and soothing agents. Plus it has Diatomaceous Earth, which is good for repelling fleas as well. Since Ty has lymphoma, I am looking for all natural options to keep him free of pests, as chemicals can trigger an immune response that could have an effect on his remission. Here are the ingredients:
Over all this is a nice shampoo option for any dog to make bath time a bit easier and more comfortable.
