I use #1 All Systems Super Cleaning & Condition Shampoo with Traleigh Velvet Touch Conditioner on Dickson. I checked the ingredients on the shampoo and it contains Deionized water, Ammonium lauryl sulfate, Cocamidopropyl betaine, Cocamide DEA, Propylene glycol, Glycerin, DMDM Hydanton, Fragrance, Citric acid, F.D.&C. Yellow #6. I haven't tried the Traleigh Shampoos, but the website says they are organic and non-detergent (http:\\ashtonenterprises.net).
On Luna, I have used the Spa Shampoo and Conditioner by Tropiclean. The Facial Scrub White Tea contains Water (Aqua), Mild Coconut cleanser, Extracts of White Tea and Blueberry, Vitamin E, Malva Sylvestris (Mallow) Extract and Ginger Root. I finished both the shampoo (I think it was almond) and the conditioner and threw out the bottles recently, otherwise I would let you know the ingredients. The Spa Sandalwood Paw Treatment has Water, Glycerin, Vitamin E, Oatmeal (Avena Sativa) Extract, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, Extract of Sandalwood Extract of Ginger Root. I'm using this as shampoo, since it mainly has the same ingredients as the shampoo did that I used. The Cloud Star Buddy Rinse Conditioner has Herbal conditioner base, aloe vera juice, essence of lavender, essence of mint, wheat protein extract, rose hip oil, kukui nut oil, olive oil, wheat germ oil, jojoba oil, chamomile extract, sage extract, nettles extract, rosemary extract, allantoin, vitamin E, vitamin C, vitamin A, vitamin B5. I have always found that this conditioner weighs down Luna's coat - I'm guessing it's the oils. My sister had gotten it. I'm just trying to finish it. I will be trying Coat Handler again on Luna, once I finish the shampoo and conditioner. I have used Coat Handler on Luna in the beginning, but she began itching a few months after I had begun using it on her. She was 9 months old when we had gotten her from my sister. Perhaps now that she's older, she may not have the same reaction plus I water down the shampoos and conditioners, even though I have mixed the correct ratio. Still learning.
The Coat Handler 15:1 Clarifying Shampoo contains no oil, lanolin, silicone, glycerin wax, Jojoba, or aloe and Coat Handler Conditioner contains no lanolin, silicone or oil. The website is http:\\senproco.com.
Eventually, I would like to have both dogs on the same shampoo and conditioner, but both dogs have different coats. Luna's is more silky and straight, whereas, Dickson is more curly. Hope this helps somewhat. You have me really looking at the ingredients, which I haven't done so in a very long time and usually that's what I look at.
