Hi all! I am currently in the process of trying to put together a great natural shampoo for my dog, after narrowing it down to 8 ingredients (listed below) I would really love for some help and guidance before I go ahead and put it all together. Here are a few of my questions: 1) I am mostly worried about the pH of the finished shampoo as I am unsure whether this all adds up to be neutral, does anybody know if this is looking too acidic or too alkaline? If so, how can I fix that? 2) Are there any ingredients here that you would remove? 3) Are there any ingredients you would consider adding? 4) Anything else you would like to add or any experiences you have had with homemade shampoos So, after tons of research, I have come up with the following ingredients to create the shampoo: Distilled/purified water Colloidal oatmeal Organic coconut oil (extra virgin, cold pressed) Organic neem seed oil (100% pure, raw) Organic olive oil (extra virgin, cold pressed) Organic aloe juice/gel (100% pure, no nasties) Organic lavender oil Organic rosemary oil I am also considering adding organic shea butter to the mix but I am yet to research it further, so any ideas on that would also be great! *** My main agenda for this is to eliminate and avoid all of the harsh chemicals and toxins found in commercial dog shampoos. I am also hoping that this will promote great health for her skin and coat. After finding out about all of the cons of commercial dog shampoos/conditioners I am very excited and eager to move away from them *** Thanks guys! Edit - I also posted this in Dog Chats as I was unsure where to put it.
