What does the skin do and how can I keep my pet’s skin healthy?
The skin barrier is essential in protecting the body from external irritants but also for keeping vital nutrients and moisture inside the body. It is therefore very important to support and protect the skin before, during and after problems occur. A healthy skin barrier has a ‘bricks and mortar’ structure keeping allergens (e.g. pollens) and parasites out and moisture in. When the skin barrier is damaged the ‘bricks and mortar’ structure separate allowing external irritants in and moisture out, leading to dry, and often itchy, skin. Ingredients such as parabens, phthalates, nanoparticles, colourants and soap can be harmful to the skin if used long term.
You can help support your pet’s skin barrier by using a high-quality shampoo or mousse, like DOUXO® S3.

Shampoo or Foam?
Many dogs and especially cats do not like being showered. Shampoos need to be applied and lathered up and then left on the dog or cat for 10 minutes before rinsing off. This can be very difficult for both pet and pet parent! See our handy videos on how to shampoo your dog and also how to apply our innovative DOUXO® S3 mousses.

TIPS ON HOW TO APPLY DOUXO® S3 MOUSSE
A DOUXO® FOR EVERY SKIN TYPE
Itchy and irritated skin? – DOUXO® S3 Calm
It is well known that pets with sensitive skin can have defective skin barriers. This allows external things (e.g. pollen) penetrate into the skin and cause irritation. By using DOUXO® S3 CALM you not only get the clinically proven soothing effect of Ophytrium but you also strengthen your pet’s skin barrier.
Dandruff or oily skin? – DOUXO® S3 SEB
DOUXO® S3 SEB is a unique combination of natural ingredients that support normal production of skin cells and it has soothing and moisturising properties. Because of its unique formula it is clinically proven to help manage all types of greasy and/or flaky skin.
Antibacterial or antifungal skincare? – DOUXO® S3 PYO
DOUXO® S3 PYO contains chlorhexidine digluconate, an antibacterial and antifungal ingredient. Many antiseptics can have a drying action on the skin as well as being antibacterial and antifungal. The calming and hydrating action of Ophytrium helps to counteract this. Also, Ophytrium has been clinically proven to help prevent bacterial overgrowth and helps to preserve the natural microbial flora.
Regular use? – DOUXO® S3 CARE
