This is a great way to clean your pet without water. The lavender powder and colloidal oatmeal can help sooth itchy skin and control extra oil on your furry baby. This powder is all natural made from arrowroot powder bentonite clay, colloidal oatmeal and lavender powder. A dry shampoo is great way to freshen your pet up without going through all the mess of a water bath. You just sprinkle the powder on your dog and rub it into the fur. Let it sit for 5 to 10 minutes and then brush out any excess. There are no essential oils added to this product, so it is safe to use around cats. The dry shampoo is packaged in an 8 ounce jar with a sifter top.
