Natural Zinc-Free Sun Cream 50g
This natural, Zinc-free Sun Cream can be used on dogs, cats and horses that are exposed to the sun.
We use edible oils along with Titanium Dioxide to provide sun protection, which is an alternative to Zinc, which is toxic for pets when consumed in large quantities.
Animals that have light coloured noses, thin or missing fur, or that just like to sunbake upside down exposing their bellies, are most in need of sun protection.
Apply to the nose, ear tips, skin surrounding the lips, and any area where skin is exposed to the sun, particularly pink skinned areas. Re-apply after swimming.

Promotes healthy skin Coco-Caprylate Coconut based conditioner Triglyceride Fractionated Coconut Oil Glyceryl Stearate Acts as a lubricant on the skin's surface, which gives the skin a soft and smooth appearance. It also slows the loss of water from the skin by forming a barrier on the skin's surface. Cetearyl Alcohol (Plant Emulsifier) Creams are made from a mix of purified water and oils so as to be more moisturising than oil alone. To hold water and oils together, they need an emulsifying wax. We use a plant based wax that allows the water and oils to stay together.
