Are Your Beauty Products Harming Your Pets?

This is your invitation to join me on a pet-safe beauty revolution - we all know our pets are curious creatures by nature, sniffing, licking, and rubbing themselves on things to actively explore their environment. We need to ensure their environment is as safe as it can be to minimize their contact with environmental toxins that may be harmful.

Welcome to the next installment of my series of videos about environmental toxins and ways to reduce the negative impact they have on our pet's health and longevity.


How Do Your Beauty Products Impact Your Pets?

We all know that cleaning products and the chemicals you use in your yard can impact your pet if you are not careful, but I’ll bet you haven’t considered that the personal grooming and hygiene products you use could also be negatively affecting your pet.

Picture this - you’re in the bathroom, spraying yourself with body spray, perfume, or cologne and your pet is lovingly rubbing themself on your legs while you do it. All those spray droplets are going to be falling on them as well. Since the skin is an absorbent organ, those synthetic chemicals are entering their body too.

But it’s not just sprays - body lotion, cream, or even our makeup (foundation and lipstick) all transfer to our pets as we hold, cuddle or kiss them. They then lick themselves when grooming and ingest the cocktail of chemicals that is on their skin.

Minimizing the Risks

It’s important to be aware of this so that innocent sniffs and curious licks don’t turn into a health problem.

Safety and beauty go hand in paw - it’s time to take a stand against toxic beauty and transform your beauty routine into a pet-friendly paradise.

Ideally, switch to all-natural, organic grooming products for yourself to reduce the risk for your pet, but if this is not an option, try to minimize your pet's contact with these products by keeping them out of the line of fire when you are applying them and trying to remember to remove your makeup before kissing and cuddling them at the end of the day. 


Keep giving your pets the best of natural life!
