How to use
How to care for coats: First, get your little mate all wet with warm water. Now apply Rufus & Coco 2in1 Oatmeal Wash to a few different areas of the coat, and massage it in to get a really good lather going. Then simply rinse, and towel or chamois dry. Do this whenever your pet needs a wash, and use Rufus & Coco's 4in1 Pamper Spray after or between washes for a super glossy rockstar finish.
Q: Why is using soap in washes a bad idea?
A: Using soap in an animal's wash will affect their skin as the acid layer of their skin will be disrupted. This can create an environment where bacteria, parasites, and viruses can breed out of control!
Unknowingly, many pet owners may repeat washing their animals because of the smell caused by a proliferation of bacteria, making the problem worse as the skin's acid layer (pH level) becomes more imbalanced. Additionally, if the shampoo makes the skin feel dry, your animal will scratch at its skin, creating abrasions for bacteria to invade. It quickly becomes a vicious cycle.
None of the Rufus & Coco washes (shampoos) contain soap. Rufus & Coco products use a natural base and formulation specifically designed to the average pH of pets. Consider that the normal range of skin pH levels for humans is 5.2 to 6.2, which means it tends to be on the acidic side, whereas the pH levels for dogs and cats range from 5.5 to 7.5, tending toward a more alkaline concentration.
Hence we never recommend using human shampoos on pets and we eliminate the soap all together in our washes. Many humans choose soap free alternatives too for the same reason!
Rufus & Coco washes also contain a hypoallergenic fresh scent.
"Okay, I admit I am sensitive, and not just on the inside! I usually hate having a wash, 'cos my skin can get a little dry and itchy afterwards. But not anymore with Rufus & Coco 2in1 Oatmeal Wash, sensitive pets like me can get the very best wash in no time, and I smell great too! Now I hate to ruin it by jumping in a puddle, but…"
We have a golden retriever who smells very doggy indeed a few hours after being washed. We have researched a solution but have found nothing to help. Apparently some dogs have a skin condition which, whilst not being dangerous in any way, makes them smell unusually unpleasant no matter how clean they are. Our boy is professionally groomed every six weeks by a groomer who trains the industry Australia wide and they have tried every product they know to fix the problem. We were on holiday with our boy who had done a lot of swimming in the sea, and I bought an off the shelf product in Coles which was Rufus & Coco 2/1 shampoo and conditioner to wash the salt out of his coat. When dry, his coat was lovely and shiny and he didn’t smell for the remaining 4 days we were away, nor did he smell two weeks later. I have suffered really bad psoriasis for over five years. Medication and specialised products help keep it in check, but nothing has helped cure it. I tried this shampoo on myself, and, together with a prescribed liquid cortisone I have been using for years, it has largely disappeared. Amazing.
I purchased this at Woolworths. Its perfect for my exotic shorthair cats who have thick short coats. They are so soft when dry and smell beautiful.
My four gorgeous doggies are looking absolutely fabulous. This is by far the best shampoo I have ever come across. Since I have been using this product my dogs skin shines and is unbelievably soft. In particular, my one doggy, Pilot had skin problems and we tried everything, since Ive used Rufus and Coco's medicated shampoo on his skin he is a happiest hound under the sun. I absolutely love love love your products and so do my babies. I would love to see more of your products in South Africa.
Best shampoo I have ever used. My dogs coat has changed so much over the last few months. Delilah is always so soft and knot free. It's amazing. Pekingese have quite difficult coats to look after, but your products make it a breeze. thanks so much. Kind Regards, Amanda
Having rescued my Staffordshire Bull-Terrier, Alma three years ago with a range of skin conditions, this product has been great for helping to alleviate her irritations from sensitive skin. When Alma first came into my care, she experienced allergic symptoms to most soaps and cleaning ingredients, but the 2in1 oatmeal wash has been fantastic. I recommend it for a regular up-keep and management of keeping dogs nice and clean, without stripping oils and other protectants from the skin.
