We are always asked what makes us so different to other balms. This is a great question and we always love to share why we think Doggie Balm Co. is special.. and of course why we think our balms are just so amazing for your dog.
All Doggie healing balms, soaps and sprays are made of 100% Natural and Organic ingredients and you can be absolutely guaranteed that all our healing balms, sprays and soaps are 100% Australian Made (we are proudly Australian Made Certified).
So why are Doggie Balm Co. healing balms and healing soaps so special? Well.. it has a lot do with the way we infuse our ingredients, and believe it or not – the cooking and melting process of the natural ingredients is a very special and custom process that we undertake (something we are not going to share here).
Maria (Founder) enjoyed a wonderful career as Executive Chef in some of Melbourne’s busiest restaurants for many years, and so if anyone understands the importance of sourcing the best natural and local ingredients, and the perfect cooking and melting conditions to ensure each and every balm is jam packed with natures goodness – it’s definitely Maria.
Maria has developed her special infusion process just for Doggie Balm Co. customers to enjoy!
We know you love your dog and that your dog is a special member of the family.
