Skin Care for Pets?

Skout’s Honor Probiotic Skin Care for Pets!

You heard us right. Skin Care for Pets is here, thanks to the ALL NEW Probiotic Skin Care/Grooming line from Skout’s Honor.  Finally, pet parents everywhere are realizing that keeping their pets’ skin and coat healthy is a must for ensuring their overall wellness.  

When the American Academy of Dermatology calls topical probiotics “one of the new beauty breakthroughs…” and companies like CliniqueColumbiaAndalou and Pacifica start to include it in their products, you listen. If you are a pet parent trying to do what’s best for your fur family, you wonder if that applies to them too. The good news is: YES!

Why do Probiotics matter for pets’ skin?

The skin is home to trillions of bacteria, some good and some bad. The good bacteria serve as the first line of defense against the environmental damage and inflammation commonly associated with excessive shedding, itching, dryness, infection and odor. Unfortunately, that environmental damage, commonly caused by over grooming, a dip in the pool, heat, wind, an over-sanitized environment and pretty much everything else a pup faces on a day-to-day basis also disrupts the natural environment on the skin (also known as the biome) and leaves our loved ones open to all of the ailments mentioned above. Ailments that, if the skin were left in its natural state, would not be an issue.

These problems are currently dealt with passively. Grooming products utilize everything from oatmeal to essential oils to deal with the negative effects of a disrupted biome but have done nothing to help revive and support the skin’s natural protective layer. Until now. Topical probiotics provide a scientifically-proven natural active solution for supporting and maintaining the skin’s natural ability to defend against and repair the damage associated with excessive shedding, itching, dryness, infection and odor.

When applied to the skin, probiotics make it difficult for harmful bacteria to take over and allow the good bacteria to flourish. This allows them to block-out opportunistic pathogenic bacteria and naturally calm the immune system. The result, a noticeably healthier-looking skin and coat in 2-4 weeks and the immediate gratification of knowing that your dog’s natural defenses are being supported in an effective and natural way!

petvalu-award-final

We are very excited to announce that Skout’s Honor was named the WINNER for “Best Product Launch in Dog Supplies” by Pet Valu, one of the fastest-growing retail chains in the world.

In April 2016, Pet Valu began carrying the complete Skout’s Honor product line (our Stain & Odor Remover, Urine Destroyer, Odor Eliminator, Litter Box Deodorizer, Patio Cleaner & Deodorizer and Cat Urine & Odor Destroyer). To date, the line has exceeded initial expectations and is proving to be a successful brand for the international pet specialty retailer.

“This is an award voted on by Pet Valu’s category management team and we chose Skout’s Honor because it offered a variety of criteria including great packaging, new innovation and it also met and exceeded our sales goals,” said Derek Ritson, category manager in pet supplies for Pet Valu. “We are pleased with the partnership we have formed and are excited to continue to grow the business together.”

Pet Valu is a specialty retailer of pet food and pet-related supplies with more than 770 stores across Canada and the US. Pet Valu offers more than 7,000 products, including a broad assortment of premium, super premium and holistic private label brands scientifically developed by internal nutritionists. Pet Valu is currently the exclusive retailer in Canada for Skout’s Honor products.

“From the very beginning, we set out to create powerful and safe cleaning products that pet parents can rely on to make their lives easier every day,” said Macon Brock, president and founder for Skout’s Honor. “It is an honor to be recognized by one of the world’s leading retailers in pet specialty with an award that directly acknowledges the efforts we’ve made to launch a brand new product line that meets that goal.”

Skout’s Honor is Better, Faster, Stronger than other products in its category, due to a proprietary odor eliminating technology and BioKore™ – a revolutionary green cleaning technology that breaks down and lifts away stains on contact. Both ingredients are biodegradable, bio-renewable and non-toxic – offering the most powerful and easy-to-use cleaning solutions on the market, while still being safe for use around pets, family and home.

The company’s eco-friendly approach is coupled with a socially conscious business model via its Skout’s Paw Pledge – a program that donates a day’s worth of food to a shelter animal with every product sold.
