We are impressed with HOWNDs ethos pals, including award winning products made in the UK. Cruelty free, organic and vegan - these products really tick our boxes for being responsible and of the best quality.
Here is what they say about their nose and paw balms.
HOWND SKIN, NOSE & PAW Balms protect, soothe and moisturise all year round. They are 100% vegan, unscented, fast-absorbing and natural. The balms can be used in the summer months to protect the snout and outer ear areas from UVA and UVB rays, as well as any exposed skin; and in the winter period to protect a dog’s soft pads on ice and salted pavements. Perfect for paw massages and pawdicures! This wonder balm is ideal to have handy at home to apply to dry, chapped or sore patches of the skin. Hemp by HOWND can be used on adult dogs, and is safe to use on puppies from 12 weeks.
Botanical ingredients work together to effectively moisturise and heal soft pads, noses and skin, and both products uniquely offer sun protection. They are certified by Cruelty Free International. Both formulations contain a generous inclusion of Organic Hemp Seed Oil – one of the world’s richest known sources of Omega 3 and Omega 6 Essential Fatty Acids – vital for optimal health of the skin. We’ve sourced this extraordinary ingredient from one of Europe’s leading organic hemp farms that has GMP (Good Manufacturing and Practice), as well as Organic certification.
Other ingredients include Candelilla wax (a vegan alternative to Beeswax); Calendula, which has skin-healing and anti-inflammatory properties useful in soothing sores treating inflamed and itchy skin; Sweet Almond Oil; Shea Butter; Vitamin E & SPF.
