Balmonds’ Skin Salvation is a one-pot natural wonder balm, loved by makeup artists and mums – and one of the best things you can put on troubled skin. But did you know it’s not just for humans, it’s wonderful for dogs too?
Here are 5 ways to use Skin Salvation on your dog:
Itchy allergic reactions
Tibetan Terrier Bertie started getting itchy spots when he was around 4 years old. His skin was sore and irritated, and the poor good boi was not feeling himself. The spots would flare up in the summer, so owner Jess thought it was an allergy to grass seed. When she took him to the vets they agreed with her, and suggested a course of topical steroids, but, knowing how nasty they could be and how they can’t be used for a long course, she didn’t want to use them. So she did what came naturally and reached for her pot of Skin Salvation. Within a couple of weeks, his spots were gone and he was back to his usual self!
We all know how dogs love to explore the world with their noses, mine is always sniffing and putting her nose into anything and everything! But this means it’s easy for them to get a cut or a burn on their most sensitive bit. A dab of Skin Salvation, with the natural antiseptic and healing powers of calendula, chamomile, chickweed and nettle extracts, and your little monster’s nose will be back to health in no time.
Dry, flaky skin
It should come as no surprise that Skin Salvation is great for dry skin, because it was originally formulated for use on the eczema-prone skin of babies. And it works just as well for dogs as it does for humans. It’s 100% natural so your pal won’t get sick from licking it either.*
Bertie had stood in something bad and it had made his paws all sore and cracked. But prescribed veterinary creams are all full of chemicals and Jess didn’t want Bertie to swallow any. A few days’ treatment with Skin Salvation gave the protection and healing that he needed, and soon he was back to his boisterous self.
Just like Bertie, dogs often get into hot bother by simply pacing the pavements in the HEAT; soothe their poorly paws with Skin Salvation.
Canine First Aid
Because Skin Salvation uses beeswax, hemp and safflower as a base, it not only nourishes but also creates a protective barrier over skin, stopping it from drying out or getting too wet.
So show a little love to your bestest mate, and apply a bit of magic to their skin!
