In a healthy skin, key nutrients such as ceramides and essential fatty acids that are naturally present in the outer layer of an animal’s skin, provide the building blocks that help to keep their skin hydrated and healthy.
In some dogs and cats, particularly those with dry or itchy skin, these nutrients can be depleted. There are many factors that can cause this including;
Harsh chemicals and irritants found in some shampoos and conditioners
Environment (wind, humidity and sun light)
Injury or physical trauma
Without these key nutrients, the skin's barrier can be broken down, which in turn affects its ability to protect against allergens and irritants in the environment, drying the skin out further and making your cat or dog itchy and uncomfortable.
The NutriDerm Replenishing Range, including the NutriDerm Replenishing Shampoo is an innovative way to nourish and moisturise the skin to maintain skin health.
