Clean your pet using pet-safe shampoo! The DERMagic Diatomaceous Earth Shampoo Bar combines the benefits of Diatomaceous Earth and pH balanced pet shampoo! Diatomaceous Earth is made up of microscopic fossils known as diatoms, which are rich in silica. This provides an anti-microbial benefit while soothing your pets skin. All DERMagic pet shampoo bars have been specially made to ensure that they have the correct pH balance for your pet, preventing skin and coat damage that occurs when human shampoo is used on pets. Keep your pet clean, their skin healthy, and their coat shiny with this pet shampoo bar!
In a bath, shower, or outdoor space, wet your pet from head to toe ensuring to avoid the eyes and mouth. Lather the soap in your hand and massage the shampoo into your pet's coat and skin, be sure to avoid the face as this can cause irritation and discomfort. Rinse immediately and thoroughly with clean water. Do not let the shampoo sit on the skin for an extended period of time.
While your pet is still wet, follow up the with one of the DERMagic Pet Conditioners to support a smooth and healthy coat. Note: Do not use conditioner on cats as this may irritate their sensitive skin.
Try the Grooming Spritz to maintain a fresh, smooth coat between baths!
Don't bathe your pet too often! For healthy pets, we recommend bathing a maximum of twice a month, or whenever they get dirty, whichever is longest between baths.
Note: Always consult with your veterinarian before beginning any skin treatments to ensure that any underlying causes for skin issues have been ruled out.
Never use anything on your pet that is made for people! The difference is people have a different pH for their skin and hair. People are more acidic (pH 1-7) and dogs have a more alkaline skin and coat (pH 7-14). DERMagic liquid and bar shampoos and conditioners are carefully pH-balanced for pets and will not dry or irritate their skin.
Diatomaceous Earth, also known as Diatomite, is made up of microscopic, ancient diatoms. Diatoms are once-celled algae organisms that are high in silica. Up to 90% of these diatoms are made of silicon dioxide, with 10% various minerals. DERMagic only uses USDA food-grade Diatomaceous Earth to ensure that it is safe for your pet, non food-grade Diatomaceous Earth can irritate the lungs, leading to further issues.
Diatomaceous Earth can be used to kill small insects and pests on your pet's skin and around their bedding areas. The high silica content of the Diatomaceous Earth works to breakdown the exoskeleton of the pests, causing them to dehydrate. This helps to kill pests and prevent further spread of infestations.
Dandruff can be caused by many things. Examples are often as simple as an imbalance in the pH of the skin or from poor quality shampoo. To get rid of it fast, use our DERMagic Dead Sea Anti-Dandruff Salt Scrubs as a wet scrub just prior to bathing. Just wet your dog down and massage a handful or two deeply into the fur. The massage will feel wonderful to your dog and the aromatherapy will calm him even more. Next shampoo and condition your dog with DERMagic liquid or bar shampoo and conditioner and rinse thoroughly. After drying you will notice the dandruff will be gone!

An allergy is a reaction to a specific allergen, such as dirt and pollen. Our products cannot cure an allergy, however the secondary response is itching and scratching, which opens the skin and leads to infection, hot spots, sores, hair loss and potentially mange. We recommend you start off with the DERMagic System to eliminate the itching/scratching cycle before it leads to bigger problems.
The amount of product that you will need to use for your pet will depend on a variety of factors, including the size of your pet, the hair type of your pet, the specific condition they have, and the severity of their condition. As a simple rule of thumb, start with less product and add more until the entire affected area is covered with a thin layer.
It depends. Some pets may begin to show improvement after a few uses of the DERMagic products, while others may take several months. It all depends on your pet's specific conditon, severity of the condition, and your pet's unique physiology and skin composition. Patience and a regular treatment schedule are key for ensuring that these products can do their job for your pet.
Red, slightly inflammed skin is common within the first few treatments. This occurs from the products working on the cellular level to purge the dead skin and any infections. The body is working with the ingredients in the products to remove the harmful materials, which may appear as red or inflammed skin, flakiness, and even a brownish-tinge to an area. This should clear up with a few more treatments. If the discoloration, inflammation, and flakiness do not improve or your pet seems particularly irritated with the area, consult your veterinarian to ensure they are not having an adverse reaction to the products.
While uncommon, it is possible for your pet to have an adverse reaction to the products. If this occurrs, immediately discontinue use and contact your veterinarian. You may wash your pet with clean water to remove any product that may be on their skin and coat to stop the reaction from progressing.
