Understanding Surfactants In Our Shampoo. Keeping Clean With Care

Understanding Surfactants In Our Shampoo. Keeping Clean With Care

When it comes to grooming our beloved canine companions, choosing the right shampoo is crucial. Among the various ingredients found in shampoos, surfactants play a vital role in cleansing and foaming.  

Bathing our furry friends means choosing a shampoo that not only cleans but cares. The magic behind this? Surfactants. They're the heroes that make our shampoos lather and cleanse like a dream. 

 At DERMagic, we sell natural shampoo bars and our luxurious liquid shampoo. Both are ideal pH levels for dogs that tend towards yeast related issues.

Surface-Acting-Agents 🫧 
AKA Surfactants, the behind-the-scenes heroes, have this cool ability to lower the surface tension of liquids, ensuring they spread seamlessly. Whether it's in liquid shampoos or shampoo bars, these agents are champs at lifting away dirt, excess oils, and grime, giving your pet's fur that perfect gleam!

Surfactants have 2 sides: a hydrophilic (water-loving) head and a lipophilic (oil-loving) tail. This dual nature lets them play nicely with both water and oils. Here at DERMagic, we're super picky about our ingredients. We sidestep any dodgy chemicals like phthalates, nitromusks, parabens, and sulfates. We only use pure essential oils to scent both our liquid and solid shampoos and conditioners. Our furry friends deserve nothing but the best, and that's our pledge to you! 🐾💕
