Adding Your Own Essential Oils: Our holistic veterinarians love our hypoallergenic organic dog shampoo as they can add their own essential oils to treat various conditions with their pet patients. Please use care when adding essential oils and do not attempt without a thorough understanding of essential oils and their properties. 4-Legger is not responsible for altered formulations or adverse reactions for the use of essential oils without proper training. We recommend working with a holistic veterinarian who can advise you on the proper dilution of essential oils. 

      Organic Aloe Vera Juice: Aloe has long been known as a natural healer - good for skin and hair/fur. Aloe is used to treat a variety of skin conditions from flaky or dry skin, to burns, minor skin infections, and more. It acts as a natural conditioner to make the hair/fur look shinier, glossier, and healthier.

      Organic Coconut Oil:Extremely hydrating, a great moisturizer that helps to provide a protective layer, retaining moisture in the skin while allowing the skin to breathe. As a mild oil, it is very good for inflamed or irritated skin, and on dogs with skin sensitivities.

      Organic Shea Butter:Provides the skin with fatty acids and nutrients for collagen production to smooth the skin and prevent drying while moisturizing and nourishing for skin. An excellent moisturizer that helps to remedy dry skin while protecting the skin's natural oils, reduce inflammation, and smooth the skin. Our shea butter is sustainably sourced (an added expense but better for our planet)!

      Organic Olive Oil: Rich in vitamins, minerals, natural fatty acids, and antioxidants. Known for its ability to nourish, rejuvenate, and protect the skin.

      Organic Sunflower Oil:  Rich in Vitamins A, D, and E, sunflower oil acts as an emollient that holds moisture inside the skin cells and retains skin hydration. As a strong antioxidant, it helps to protect the collagen and elastin in the skin to improve the skin’s tone. The high amounts of Omega-6 (linoleic) fatty acid are anti-inflammatory to reduce skin inflammation and dermatitis.  

      Organic Jojoba Oil: A great cleanser and an excellent moisturizer. Jojoba also contains fatty acids that help to rejuvenate and restore dry skin.

      Organic Vegetable Glycerine:  Natural emollient properties which can soften and soothe the skin. Glycerine is very mild and excellent to use on the most sensitive of skin. It is also thought to be a humectant - meaning - it can attract moisture to your dog's skin and keep it locked in! 

      Organic Rosemary Extract: A very powerful antioxidant that is used as a natural preservative with anti-inflammatory properties.

      How our hand crafted shampoo is made: 
      We feel strongly about transparency and honesty of our ingredients and process. So, for those of you who want a little bit more information - read on!  

      Organic Coconut oil (Cocos nucifera), Organic Shea Butter (Butyrospermum parkii), Organic Olive Oil (Olea europaea), Organic Sunflower Oil (Helianthus annuus) and Organic Jojoba Oil (Simmondsia chinensis) is mixed with Decolorized Organic Aloe Juice (Aloe barbadensis) and potassium hydroxide under heat in a large kettle. The result of that reaction is Saponified oils of coconut (Potassium cocoate), shea butter (Potassium Shea Butterate), olive (Potassium olivate), sunflower (Potassium sunflowerate), jojoba (Potassium jojobate) and vegetable glycerine. Some of the organic aloe juice evaporates off and the glycerine is mixed back in while the potassium hydroxide used to saponify the oils is no longer detectable. Organic Rosemary Extract (Rosmarinus officinalis) is mixed to give our product a 3 year shelf life.

      Catch Dog. Shake bottle to blend ingredients.

      Wet your 4-Legger with warm water from head to the end of their tail. Apply a small amount of 4-Legger to the palm of your hand and apply to your pet.

      While the consistency is thin, you will find that you need only a small amount to cover your dog and that it lathers quite well!  To increase suds and lather, use more water - not shampoo!

      Gently massage 4-Legger deep into your pet's coat. Rinse thoroughly until water runs clear.

      A few tips if you are new to organic dog shampoo:

      • Your dog will likely go through a perfectly normal transition period. Don't worry - we've documented what you can expect - click here to read!  
      • To increase the lather, use more water - not shampoo.
      • Consider adding one of our foamer bottles to your order!  It will help you manage the thin consistency by infusing air into the shampoo, as well as keep you from using more than is needed to wash your dog.  

        Note: Keep out of your pet's eyes. To wash your pet's face - use a wash cloth.

        We get a lot of questions about what isn't in 4-Legger! The simple answer is all the bad stuff you find in traditional dog shampoo! We are committed to having no synthetic chemicals in our dog shampoo so every dog can have a healthy bath!

        Love - his coat is gorgeous

        Our vet recommended this to help with our puppy’s itchy paws, legs & underbelly when he lays in the grasses & Ivy beds. He coat is beautiful after using just a bit of this. It seems to help the itchiness. Sometimes we use a tiny amount in a tub of water to wash off just his paws too. Such a great product.

        the best shampoo for allergic, sensitive, itchy pups

        I have two chihuahuas and one of them is extremely allergic and has very sensitive skin. I tried many shampoos looking for one that would be non-irritating and keep his sensitive skin moisturized to prevent his endless scratching of himself. I’ve tried so many different shampoos. Finally, I decided to give it a try to 4-Legger’s Soothe shampoos just because based on ingredient list it sounded super mild and even moisturizing. I’ll be honest that I purchased Soothe shampoo but I did not purchase the foamer bottle. experience wasn’t good without the foamer as basically the shampoo did not foam at all. So I ended up using to so of product and that wasn’t good. 4-Legger customer support was supper helpful and empathetic to someone like me who wasn’t used to using organic shampoos. Since I got the foamer bottle it changed it all as now the shampoo foams very well, making it super easy and pleasant to wash my pups. And my sensitive, allergic pup seems to be scratching much, much less. Thank you for creating such an awesome product and thank you Melissa for your superb customer support. And for all the first-timers who never used organic shampoos from 4-Legger. In my humble opinion, you actually need the foamer bottle to be able to wash your pup with ease. Using the shampoo straight from the bottle isn’t the easiest way to wash your pup. Also besides the foamer bottle with Soothe shampoo in it being super easy to foam up my pups and wash them...also rinsing the shampoo is super easy. It doesn’t leave any ‘film’ on my pups coat, it’s easy to rinse, their fur is soft and shiny, and since it’s fragrance-free product I love how my pups simply smell ‘clean’ and ‘natural’. I most importantly appreciate that my pups seem to be much less itchy. I hope that with using Soothe shampoo on regular basis my pups will stop scratching themselves all together. There’s hope for sensitive, allergic, itchy pups! Thank you 4-Legger!

        My Doberman loved this unscented gentle shampoo

        If your looking for organic with all safe ingredients then you should buy this one. It’s gentle on a dogs skin and make my puppies jet black hair shine so much! Great product so I will stick with it.

        The only shampoo we use!

        We love this stuff! We adopted a senior Portuguese Water Dog and a Black Mouth Cur and this works great for both of them! Love that we can use more frequently when they're in mud without it irritating the doggies. Rinses out well without a soapy residue. Thank you for such a great product.

        The only shampoo I'll ever buy. Cleared up a severe skin reaction/chemical burn!

        I used this shampoo on my dog after he had what was basically a chemical burn on his body from another supposed hypoallergenic shampoo on the market (which, he had been bathed with last year with 0 issues.) That shampoo caused his body to become red and inflamed, blister, scabby, and peel, and he was incessantly itchy.

        After bathing in the 4Legger Shampoo, he was immediately less itchy, and just a day later, his skin was no longer red and inflamed. Just a couple of days later, and his skin was 95% better.

        This shampoo lathers nicely and easily and washes out even easier, which I appreciate since the rinsing is the part most dogs hate the most.

        I will only be purchasing and recommending this shampoo from now on. Thank you for helping my dog!
