QUESTION: Why is BEST SHOT formulated to be low sudsing? Don’t bubbles clean?
ANSWER: Bubbles don’t clean! In fact they actually make the hair clump together preventing each individual hair shaft from getting fully clean. Bubbles can also indicate excess cleansing agents are being used which can be harsh, drying both skin and coat, not to mention your own hands! Lower sudsing allows for quicker, cleaner rinsing and won’t back up plumbing. Over time you will save time and money when using Best Shot!
QUESTION: How often can I use BEST SHOT products?
ANSWER: BEST SHOT is formulated to be gentle enough on your pet’s skin and coat to be used every day! Many professional groomers & bathers note how much softer and healthier their own hands are after bathing pets with Best Shot because of the gentler neutral pH range they are formulated within!
QUESTION: What are surfactants, and how do they work?
ANSWER: Best Shot products are soap free, using only mild non-irritating coconut based surfactants from renewable resources.
Surfactant molecules attach and surround particles of dirt and oils, holding them in suspension within the water. So, when you rinse the coat with fresh water, you rinse away the filth.
QUESTION: What are “Hydrolyzed Wheat, Oat and Silk Proteins” and why are they important?
ANSWER: Proteins are key Best Shot ingredients used in our products. Natural lipids are grafted to the proteins, and the blend is given a cationic charge…so it not only bonds to hair and skin…it also provides “custom” conditioning, by focusing more on the areas that need it most.
It gives pet hair better body and control. It also reduces brittleness and limpness with dramatic effects on damaged hair. It makes the coat stronger and healthier. It’s proven to penetrate cuticle, provides balanced moisture, nourishes hair and skin, and minimizes pores, for that porcelain Best Shot look.
Groomers note that scissoring is easier and more efficient when using protein enriched Best Shot. Many owners comment on how their pets actually stay cleaner longer when using Best Shot Products!
QUESTION: What kind of silicone is used in Best Shot’s conditioners and sprays?
ANSWER: Amino modified organo-silicones are modern, safe and proven human grade conditioning agents that bind extremely well with the proteins and essential oils used in Best Shot conditioners and rinses. They actually hydrate, moisturize, nourish, and close the cuticle naturally. They do not dry, irritate or weigh down hair at all like heavy greasy dated silicones you may be familiar with do.
In addition to being protein enriched, Best Shot’s conditioners are “emollient”. That means not only do they repair damaged coat, but they also ad slip to the coat, releasing loose dead hair, making brushing a breeze, especially on long coats and thick double coats!
Bare in mind that Best Shot conditioners and detangling products do not use any alcohol or acetate in their formulation at all like some competitive products do. Alcohol & acetate can lead to severe coat damage and breakage, or even irritated skin.
Best Shot uses only the finest & safest biodegradable, natural, sustainable and human grade ingredients available sparing no expense!
QUESTION: Why does “human grade” matter, and what does it mean?
ANSWER: These are the same high quality FDA approved ingredients that are used in proven cosmetics such as the skin and hair care products that you would use on yourself. Best Shot products are absolutely safe & healthy for animals! All of our products are cruelty free.
