PS Free Conditioner (Paraben & Silicon Free) The essential oil of lavender can basically be used for any ailment, and in the case of dog skin care, its uses are vast. Lavender has a natural calming effect and has anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties that are extremely soothing to the skin. Its additional anti-inflammatory properties can also help with dermatitis issues including dandruff, eczema, rashes, insect bite infection, psoriasis and wounds. In combination with oil of avocado it is especially restorative to dry skin.

What makes the Rosie & Friends line so special? The line is unique for many reasons. It is considered a therapeutic line versus just a spa line. There are no artificial ingredients, no artificial dyes, colors, fragrance, preservatives, sulfates, parabens, petroleum and of course no animal testing. They are friendly to your dog as well as the environment.
Why SLS free and what is SLS? SLS is short for Sodium Laurel Sulfate a harsh cleansing chemical that is also found in many industrial strength cleaners. It is the agent that causes our soaps to have all of those extra bubbles. The truth is it is not needed in animal shampoos. Their furs can be cleaned equally well without the harsh chemicals, and when a dog is already itching from allergies or other skin issues, it is just one more thing that can cause them to be irritated. So keeping the shampoo pure with as few additives as possible allows for the dog to get the most from the other beneficial oils and ingredients.
How do I use the shampoo and conditioner? The products are meant to be used as treatments so spending a little extra time in the process gives the product a chance to do its thing. For example while using the conditioner, massage it into the coat until the product has a chance to reach the skin. Work it in so the skin gets the benefit of the oils. Your dog will appreciate the massage as well. The key is allowing the oils to penetrate the irritated areas.
What if my dog has no skin issues? Why use the products? The natural shampoos and conditioner will keep your dog’s skin and coat healthy. So many commercial products use artificial ingredients including Sodium Lauryl Sulfate and fragrance which actually cause skin irritation. Dogs really do have sensitive skin and appreciate the natural products.
Can the products be used on people? Absolutely. All of the products are made with human grade ingredients.
Sample of many Testimonials:
Mimi (my first adopted furry child), and I adopted Casper six years ago, he was around two years at the time. He had been under a lot of stress when I got him. His white hair was coming out in handfuls. The Veterinarians told me he must have been a puppy mill dog, an experiment that didn’t work so they threw him away, a disposable dog. A wonderful woman that did rescue found him and rescued him. She had to keep him in a room with twenty-five other dogs and he was always in a crate. I saw him on-line and thought what an interesting looking dog. He had an all-white long body, beautiful face, and a tail that looked like an ostrich feather. What I didn’t know was he had bad allergies especially the seasonal airborne allergies. It started out small, every August he started losing hair and his skin would become very red and inflamed and then every year it became more serious and lasted longer. I put him on a special diet and introduced Chinese herbs that seemed to help some. I took him to many different veterinarians holistic, and allopathic and the only thing they suggested were steroids. Casper, we call him Mister Casper, still has allergies but he is doing so much better after we found Rosie and Friend’s Shampoo and Conditioner. I use the Lemongrass and Calendula Shampoo and the Lavender & Avocado Conditioner on Casper. Both are paraben and silicon free. The base for these products is essential oils. Casper can now sleep through the night. We still have to bath him with the shampoo and conditioner at least once a week but at times it is more often. With Rosie and Friends Shampoo I feel comfortable about bathing the Furry kids more often. Rosie and Friends Shampoo and Conditioner are two great items that I will never be without.
