Epi-Soothe Shampoo for Dogs, Cats and Horses

This treatment applies to the following species:
Manufacturer: Virbac




USES: EPI-SOOTHE® SHAMPOO with SPHERULITES® Microcapsules is a natural oat-grain derivative, soap-free shampoo designed for soothing, cleansing, and controlling mild itch of dry and sensitive skin for dogs, cats, and horses of any age.

ANTI-ADHESIVE glycotechnology utilizes a unique combination of monosaccharides and an alkylpolyglucoside that reduces bacterial and yeast adhesion to the stratum corneum. This action physically disrupts micro-organism colonization on the skin surface and may delay onset of irritation due to topical bacteria or yeast.

SPHERULITES Microcapsules: An exclusive encapsulation system that provides a slow release of ingredients long after product application.

Chitosanide: A natural biopolymer that creates a protective film on the skin and hair coat.

CONTAINS: Purified water, sodium C14-16 olefin sulfonate, cocamidopropyl betaine, lauramide DEA, linoleamide DEA, SPHERULITES Microcapsules, glycerin, colloidal oatmeal, lauryl glucoside, chitosan succinamide, magnesium aluminum silicate, DMDM hydantoin, d-galactose, d-mannose, l-rhamnose, fragrance, hydroxypropyl methylcellulose, FD&C Blue #1. May contain sodium hydroxide, sodium chloride and lactic acid.

Directions For Use

Shake well before use. Wet the hair coat with warm water and apply a sufficient amount of shampoo to create a rich lather. Rinse and repeat. Massage shampoo into wet hair coat, lather freely. Allow to remain on hair for 5 to 10 minutes, then rinse thoroughly with clean water. May be used as often as daily or as directed by your veterinarian. Follow with EPI-SOOTHE Cream Rinse if desired.
