Apple scented soothing detergent-free shampoo
Epi-Soothe™ Shampoo uses the power of natural oatmeal, famous for its soothing and deep cleansing properties. Colloidal oatmeal helps the skin retain its moisture, relieves itching and can help reduce the need for corticosteroids in some cases.
Superior soothing, cleansing and moisturising action for normal, itchy and dry skin due to the presence of colloidal oatmeal, and Skin Innovation Science™.
Epi-Soothe™ S-I-S Shampoo contains natural oat-grain in colloidal form, giving antipruritic and emollient effect especially suited to soothing and cleansing sensitive skin.
Epi-Soothe™ S-I-S has a neutral surfactant, soap-free shampoo base, pH balanced to normal canine and feline skin - as is characteristic of Virbac shampoos.
Anti-adhesive Glycotechnology™ contains monosaccharides and an alkyl-polyglucoside which reduces bacterial and yeast adhesion to the outer most layer of the skin. This process prevents bacterial build-up on the skin surface which may also delay skin irritation.
To aid the body’s ability to defend itself, the plant extracts in S-I-S shampoos from Boldo1 and Meadowsweet2 stimulate the production of AMPs by the skin.3 The Defensin Technology in S-I-S can reduce microbial load by 76%.4
Epi-Soothe™ S-I-S Shampoo provides mild cleansing, and soothing, emollient, moisturising and antipruritic actions for itchy, dry, inflamed or irritated skin on dogs and cats.
