Its completely safe, natural, eco friendly and cleans dogs like nothing else. I used to groom dogs, and I've worked for vet hospitals for a decade, and I swear, this is the best clean dog you can get! It doesn't have any smell either, the dogs just come out smelling clean. I use a light mist of pure lavender or juniper essential oil in water for scent.
I've used Basic H on a greasy terrier coat- turned out great! I've also used it on a dry, shedding lab- also great! turns out shiny and seems to PH balance skin very well.
As a footnote- and to reiterate the safety of Basic H- they (Shaklee) say its safe enough to bruh your teeth with ;)
You should try Mutt Nose Best. All of their products are all natural and organic. They even have a line that is made with wild Maine blueberries! It's my personal favorite and smells good enough to eat. Check them out at http://www.muttnosebest.com/
