Our furriends at Benji + Moon sent us its range of Botanical Dog Shampoo to try out.
Don’t know who Benji + Moon is
Benji + Moon is an e-pet shop that offers a line of beautifully curated and designed pet products. The teams works closely with South African artisans to create dog and cat collars, leads, pet bowls and dog shampoos, to name a few.
The Botanical Shampoo left us – TOTHEBONE's founding doggos – fresh, clean and, importantly, unharmed (aside from having to be wrangled into the tub!) It's free from any harmful chemicals (like sodium lauryl sulphate, cetyl sulphate, synthetic fragrances and artificial dyes). The shampoo is, in fact, made from a blend of vegetable-based extracts. Ingredients include indigenous African khakibos (which offers natural flea and tick repelling properties) and German chamomile (which has a soothing and calming effect). The combination of aromatherapy oils softens bushy, wiry coats as well as helping to calm itchy skin. Gentle enough for even the most sensitive pups' skins, it costs R160. It's even approved by the Beauty Without Cruelty Association and Vegan Society of South Africa.
We love the fresh, earthy, botanical smell that reminds us of an early-morning run on the mountain. It's good to know it's gentle on our skins, our pawrents' hands, and the environment. Plus, with every purchase Benji + Moon donates 5% to CLAW (Community Led Animal Welfare based in the West Rand, Gauteng, South Africa).
