Tired of your dog's dull and lifeless coat and considering purple shampoo? The recent trend on TikTok has shown people using purple shampoo on their pets to brighten their fur, but this practice is alarming veterinarians. Using human products, such as purple shampoo, on your dog can be dangerous as they are not formulated for animals and may contain harmful ingredients that could lead to skin irritation or even illness.
It's important to remember that human products should never be used on pets unless recommended by a veterinarian. Purple shampoo, in particular, may contain toxins that can be harmful to your pet. Even after rinsing, a residue may be left on your dog's coat which could be ingested or cause skin irritation.
To maintain a healthy and shiny coat for your dog, it's essential to use products specifically designed for pets. A dog's skin is much more alkaline than human skin, so the shampoo you use on your dog should be neutral in pH to avoid irritation. In a detailed blog post we share tips on choosing the right shampoo for your dog.

It's made with natural ingredients such as lavender, coconut-based cleansers, optical brighteners, and organic aloe vera to soothe your dog's skin.
At earthbath, we believe that the ingredients that touch your pet's coat and skin should be as naturally effective, non-toxic, and gentle as possible. So, instead of using purple shampoo on your dog, opt for a specialized pet shampoo that will not only brighten their coat, but also keep them safe and healthy.
