Made from a blend of organic oils deeply infused with skin-nourishing organic lavender and chamomile flowers, along with fair-trade Shea Butter, this salve is for soothing and hydrating your fur baby's paws, wounds, dry patches & rashes. Vet-approved ingredients are pet-safe.

This product is named in memory of my neighbor’s dog, Arlo, and inspired by my deep love of animals. They deserve clean skincare products, too!

INGREDIENTS AND SKIN CARE GOALS

Lavender is a powerful flower for the skin. It offers antimicrobial and antioxidant benefits that can help clear bacteria and excess oil, while boosting cell regeneration & circulation. It can also help with reducing the appearance of scars & wrinkles, restoring the skin's PH balance, combating free radicals, reducing redness & inflammation, and helps with hydration.

Chamomile is a tried and true flower for the skin. It is also antimicrobial, antiseptic and anti-inflammatory, helping to kill bacteria, treat skin irritations & wounds, and reduce redness. Polyphenols in chamomile help to fight free radicals while flavonoids help with cell regeneration.

Myrrh is naturally anti microbial, antiseptic & antioxidant. Applying myrrh oil to your skin may aid wound healing and fight microbes that can cause infections. The oil may also deter the growth of skin fungi, including ringworm and athlete’s foot. It can also facilitate the fading of unwanted blemishes on the skin, soothes itchiness, and reduces symptoms of eczema among other skin ailments. It effectively cleans, moisturizes, and tightens the skin, thereby reducing and preventing further chapping, cracking, and sagging. It works as an astringent that strengthens and smooths the skin while also cleansing the pores.

Jojoba Oil hydrates the skin and has antioxidant & anti-inflammatory properties. It is helpful in reducing redness and calming skin. As a wax ester, jojoba oil mimics natural sebum, so it helps condition & seal in moisture, softening and smoothing your skin. When combined with beeswax, it also helps protect the skin barrier, reducing trans-epidermal water loss and sealing in moisture.

Avocado Oil offers beta carotene, protein, lecithin, fatty acids, and vitamins A, D, and E that can help moisturize and protect your skin from damaging UV rays and also increase collagen production.

Olive Oil is anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory, with vitamins A, D, K & E, squalene & rich in fatty acids. Reduces water loss from skin.

Shea Butter contains linoleic, oleic, stearic, and palmitic fatty acids that are quickly absorbed into the skin, and help restore lipids and create moisture. This helps restore your skin's barrier that holds in moisture. It is also antibacterial, antifungal, antioxidant & anti-inflammatory all while helping to boost cell regeneration. NOTE: It is technically a tree nut, and though it is low in the proteins that typically cause a nut allergy reaction, it can in very sensitive individuals.

Beeswax  is antibacterial and anti-inflammatory, and will help help seal in moisture without clogging pores.
