Sorry, the oils and the ivory would make me ill so I could not wash my dog in them. I want to keep him safe. The only aloe I use is clear and a 100 per cent natural and you find it in the medical part of store.To many products today are toxic to us and our animals. Go with Organic.

My dog always stinks so I might have to make a batch of this!
This is fantastic. I have a big smelly dog and we're running out of shampoo - I think I'll try this next. :D
