CALM - USDA Certified Organic Lavender Dog Shampoo with Organic Calendula and St. John's Wort

The first USDA Certified Organic Dog Shampoo using safe & non-toxic organic aloe juice, organic oils, and organic essential oils!

Need relief for your dog's dry and itchy skin, atopic dermatis, or hot spots?

Calming ~ Gentle ~ Powerful!
We combined Organic Lavender, Organic Calendula, and Organic St. John's Wort to provide relief of painful inflamed skin and encourage skin healing. 

While beneficial for all skin types, our organic lavender dog shampoo truly excels at soothing sensitive skin, dry and itchy skin, and providing relief for hot spots while reducing skin inflammation.

Known for its antibacterial, anti-fungal, antiseptic, and anti-inflammatory properties, lavender is used to treat common skin disorders where it can help to reduce itching, swelling, and redness.

Our shampoo base is made with organic aloe juice, organic vegetable glycerin, organic rosemary extract, and organic saponified oils of coconut oil, shea butter, olive oil, sunflower oil, and jojoba oil for a deep calming, balancing, soothing, moisturizing and nurturing shampoo.  

    What's In the Bottle?

    Organic aloe juice, organic saponified oils (coconut, shea butter, olive, sunflower, and jojoba), organic vegetable glycerin, organic lavender essential oil, organic calendula, organic st john's wort, organic rosemary extract

    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: Our cold pressed and unrefined organic shea butter is naturally rich in vitamins A and E as well as essential fatty acids and other vitamins and minerals that make it a natural emollient to moisturize rough and dry 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 that softens and soothes 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 Lavender Essential Oil:Known for its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, lavender is used to treat common skin disorders where it can help to reduce itching, swelling, and redness to reduce skin irritation and hot spots.

    Organic Calendula: One of the most beneficial herbs you can use for dander, dandruff, red itchy skin, hot spots, rashes.  Calendula is a known topical analgesic to assist in relieving pain from dry and itchy skin while reducing inflammation and increasing blood flow to promote healing while it's natural astringent properties will help to tone the skin. 

    Organic St. John's Wort: Known for it's natural antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, St. John's Wort, named after John the Baptist, helps to soothe sensitive skin, balance sebum production, increase blood flow to the skin, reduce skin irritation, soothe dry painful skin, soothe insect bites, and help to relieve muscle strain and tension.

    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! 

    The 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 Organic Aloe Vera (Aloe barbadensis leaf juice) 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), and jojoba (Potassium jojobateand glycerine. Some of the aloe juice evaporates off and the glycerine is mixed back in while the potassium hydroxide used to saponify the oils and is no longer detectable. More organic aloe (Aloe barbadensis Leaf Juice) is added along with additional organic vegetable glycerin is added. The organic lavender essential oil (Lavandula angustifolia), organic calendula (Calendula officinalis), organic st. john's wort (Hypericum perforatum) and organic rosemary extract (Rosmarinus officinalis) are mixed in and blended

    Catch Dog. Shake bottle to blend ingredients. Wet your 4-Legger with warm water from head to the end of their tail. Apply 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, 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:  Use care around your pet's eyes. To wash your pet's face - use a wash cloth.

      The best shampoo!

      This is the only shampoo I will use on my dog, the only true "organic" dog shampoo I have found in my extensive research. Not only do I use it for Hazel's bath, but I wash her paws with the shampoo after walks on grass and streets. I even used it myself and it's great! Thank you for making such a healthy, safe product. xx Lisa and Hazel

      So Happy!

      Hello. I recently purchased shampoo for my new puppy. I emailed with some initial questions and heard back immediately from Melissa. I am very happy with the lovely customer service, and the product - Certified Organic Lavendar (CALM) shampoo. It smells so good, and the foamer bottle suggestion was so nice as it allows the product to go farther. I look forward to a continuous relationship.

      awesome products

      Our store strives to give our customers the very best quality in products and 4 Legger has done just that. There will always be a shelf for them in our store.

      I got the foamier bottle and lathered him up! It’s a nice scent and he’s so soft!
