Earthbath Shed Control Shampoo & Conditioner Review

Shed Control Shampoo and Conditioner

Hi everyone, I hope you're all having a fantastic day! Today we have a review for you on some fantastic grooming products! Both of my dogs think that baths are ridiculous and not fun so please ignore the tragic photos. Zoe is fine and not abused, I promise.

I definitely don't do stinky dogs so the girls are bathed pretty often, especially after romps at the park we go to because they get muddy and stinky. Since the dogs are bathed so regularly it's very important to me to find brands of shampoo and conditioner that are gentle but also able to get the job done. I was really excited when Earthbath contacted me about reviewing some of their products! We were sent shampoo, conditioner and their ear wipes in exchange for an honest review.

Earthbath was founded in 1995 and their products have been developed and manufactured in California with only the safest, finest ingredients from nature. Earthbath has grown from four shampoos to a comprehensive line of totally natural shampoos, wipes, spritzes, and grooming foams that are sold around the world!

Earthbath products are cruelty free and contain no animal ingredients or byproducts. All of their products are made with the highest quality human-grade ingredients.


I chose the Shed Control Shampoo and Conditioner. Shedding is always a thing around here and products that can help reduce it are definitely a plus. Earthbath has blended the finest antioxidants and skin moisturizers found in nature. These products do not contain any soap, gluten, DEA, parabens, synthetic dyes or perfumes, SLS/SLES, phthalates, or enzymes and they are animal cruelty free. Even the sudsy runoff is safe and is harmless to plants!



Ingredients Include: Purified water, renewable plant-derived & coconut-based cleansers, organic shea butter, omega-6 fatty acids, green tea leaf extract, aloe vera, panthenol, D-biotin, phytic acid, glycerin, allantoin, extracts of ginseng & awapuhi, natural preservative.

The shampoo lathers really well. I generally put a line of shampoo down the back and sides and scrub it in with my rubber zoom groom brush, then I add a few sprays of water to get it to lather even more and then continue brushing with the rubber brush. I always wash my dogs twice and condition once.



Ingredients Include: Purified water, vegetable-derived conditioner and detangler, organic shea butter, omega-6 fatty acids, aloe vera, amino acids, allantoin, phytantriol, extracts of green tea leaf, ginseng & awapuhi, natural preservative.

The conditioner does not lather or foam but it does really sink into the coat. I put conditioner on after I've rinsed the shampoo out and leave it in for 5-10 minutes. I brush the conditioner through the dog's coat with my rubber brush and continue to brush to remove the excess hair.

 
While Zoe soaks in conditioner, I clean her ears with the Ear Wipes!

Earthbath Ear Wipes Ingredients Include: Purified water, witch hazel, chamomilla recutita, cucumber extract, althaea officinalis root extract, citric acid, polysorbate, phenchem (natural preservative).

Earthbath Ear Wipes are a fast, convenient way for me to clean their ears. The product contains witch hazel which is a natural cleanser and astringent that helps to prevent ear infections. I like to wrap the ear wipe around my finger and gentle swab out the ear with my finger. The ear wipes are really big and one wipe works for both dogs, although I do switch to the opposite side when it's the other dog's turn.



I really like the products we received from Earthbath! The dogs smell great, their coats are shiny, soft and clean. They are shedding a lot less than they were. The products did not dry out their coats and they did not have any reactions or skin issues. The ear wipes work great, too! I love that all of their products are cruelty-free and safe for the environment. I have very sensitive skin and I am sensitive to smells and they didn't irritate my skin and I didn't get a headache from the scent because it's nice and mild.

I'm very happy and I would recommend checking Earthbath products out and giving them a try!

How often do you groom your pets?

  1. I always say, bath is a four letter word. No thank you! If we review shampoo, I let Bailie do the modeling. You did a great job in the tub and glad you like this shampoo. Sounds like it would be good for the furs.

  2. Because we groom our collies for dog shows we need products we can trust. The condition of their coats is very important. We will check out this company, thanks

  3. We had anti allergy shampoo for Little Bit. She was allergic to so many things. I do get the need to find a product that works and is the least difficult in terms of dry skin and the like. I sure wish we could give Little Bit a bath. We miss her so.

    Have a woof woof day you two. My best to your wonderful mom. ☺

  4. Um, never? I can't get them to stay in the tub long enough to rinse, let alone have conditioner soak... Or model!!!! I have dirty dogs. These pics are adorbs.

  5. I haven't bathed Blueberry for a couple of years now. She hates it and with my back issues, it's more trouble than it's worth to battle with her. She never really put up a huge fight, but she would look for holes in my system to break free - it was stressful for both of us and no amount of steak cubes or roast beef would convince her I wasn't trying to kill her. :)

    I use those wipes for B's ears! Of course, because they are slightly moist, B acts like I am torturing her - but I do really like them. Very nice smell to them and they get the job done!

  6. Nala gets bath once a month or so she also looks pathetic while in the tub. I will have to look into Earthbath especially since she has sensitive skin.

  7. We're reviewing these, too! So far I've only tried their pet wipes, but I love them. I wipe down Nola's paws before bed each night, and they help quite a bit. I didn't realize Zoe has such a thick coat!

    1. Oh awesome! Yeah, Zoe has a double coat. You wouldn't normally be able to tell because I keep her brushed out but you can really see it when I back brush her and she's wet. :D

  8. These sound like great products, and I'd definitely love to try those ear wipes.

  9. I came across Earthbath about 2 years ago or so, and its now the only shampoo I use for my pups. Our favourite is the cherry puppy shampoo (it makes them smell so good I could eat them!), and the mango tango shampoo smells amazing too!!! One I haven't tried is the shed control, I might have to give it a try with the hairy Border Collie!!
