I don't really know how well it does as protection against salt or ice melt. I don't put any of that stuff down where my beasties walk but it does help a little with snowballs.
It is specifically designed to protect against salt and chemicals. We use a Pet Safe Ice Melt.
Protect your dog from:
• Salt and Chemicals
• Ice build-up

• Rough terrain
Is it greasy? Do their paws need to be cleaned once they come back in the house?
It is “greasy” or waxy, but is meant to be rubbed into the paws until it absorbs. It’s like body or hand lotion in that regard, only thicker. It will absorb as long as you take the time to work it into their pads. We were instructed to apply it and immediately take our dog outside. The purpose of taking him outside was so any excess or residual is wiped off outside and so the dog doesn’t feel the need to lick his paws.
