If you’re a dog owner, you know how important it is to take care of your pet’s paws. Dog paw balm is an effective way to protect your dog’s paws from various environmental factors, such as heat, cold, and rough surfaces.

In this blog, we’ll discuss the benefits each of the ingredients bring to our balm and how they can help your furry friend’s paws.

Shea Butter

Derived from the nuts of the African shea tree, shea butter is a natural ingredient known for its moisturising properties. Packed with fatty acids and vitamins, it effectively soothes and nourishes dry and cracked paw pads, making it an ideal choice for your furry friend’s paw care. Moreover, it possesses anti-inflammatory and anti-fungal characteristics that can leave your pet’s paws feeling revitalised and rejuvenated.

Coconut Oil

Coconut oil, another all-natural ingredient, is a moisturising master. It’s got several benefits for dogs’ paws:

Moisturising
Coconut oil is a natural moisturiser, thanks to its high levels of medium-chain fatty acids. These fatty acids penetrate deep into the skin, helping to hydrate and nourish dry, cracked paw pads.

Anti-inflammatory
Coconut oil has anti-inflammatory properties, which can be particularly helpful if your dog has any minor cuts or scrapes on their paws.

Soothes itchiness
If your dog is suffering from itchy paws, coconut oil may be able to help. It can help to soothe the skin and reduce any inflammation that may be causing your dog to itch.

Antimicrobial
Coconut oil contains lauric acid, which has antimicrobial properties. This means that it can help to protect your dog’s paws from harmful bacteria and fungi that could cause infections.

Vitamin E

Vitamin E penetrates deep into the paw pads to provide long-lasting moisture, helping to hydrate and nourish your pup’s paws. Like coconut oil, it’s got anti-inflammatory powers which can help reduce any redness or puffiness.

Got a little scrape or cut on your dog’s paws? Vitamin E can help to speed up the healing process, getting your pup back to their pawsome self in no time!

Beeswax

Beeswax is an emollient, which means it helps to lock in moisture and keep your dog’s paw pads soft and supple.

It’s a key ingredient as it’s a natural emulsifier, so it helps to bind the paw balm ingredients together.

It also helps to create a protective barrier on the skin, preventing moisture loss and protecting the paw pads from environmental damage from harsh environmental elements like hot pavement or cold snow.

Calendula Oil

Calendula oil is a natural ingredient derived from the petals of the calendula flower and offers several benefits to your dog’s paws. Used for centuries for its anti-inflammatory and healing properties, it makes an excellent ingredient for reducing redness and inflammation on the paw pads.

Geranium Oil

Geranium oil is a natural ingredient with antiseptic properties.

We use it in our paw balm thanks to its ability to help soothe and heal dry and cracked paws. It’s also got a pleasant scent which is ever so apparent in our paw balm – although not in our nose balm, which is unscented to prevent irritating your pup’s nose.

Both geranium and calendula oil have antifungal properties, and regular use can help prevent fungal infections.

Olive Oil

Olive oil, a natural emollient, is abundant in minerals, vitamins, and antioxidants that can effectively nourish and moisturise even the driest paw pads. Additionally, the antioxidants present in olive oil can safeguard your furry friend’s paws from the harmful effects of environmental stressors such as the sun.

The combination of all of these ingredients means that dry or rough paw pads don’t stand a chance! So, keep your pup’s paws healthy and hydrated, or just give them some extra TLC with our all-natural paw balm.
