If you look at a bottle of shampoo, first on the list of ingredients are usually Sodium Laureth Sulfate or Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS). These detergents have excellent wetting / cleansing properties, but they can be very irritating to the skin causing redness and dryness. Here at Gorgeous Guineas we have never used these ingredients as they are far too harsh for use on guineas, let alone humans.
Our shampoos are based on ingredients derived from plants that are kinder to the skin and include detergents derived from Coconut Oil and Sugar, along with an Olive Oil based fat-restoring (conditioning) agent.
We use the minimum amout of preservatives, and any colour in the shampoo comes from the Essential Oils or other active ingredients. Average shelf life = 12 - 14 months.
IMPORTANT NOTE: guineas under 3 to 4 months old generally do not need to be bathed unless they have a skin problem.
**WE CANNOT POST ORDERS CONTAINING MORE THAN 1 LITRE OF LIQUIDS due to restrictions imposed by the Royal Mail. Please contact us first if you require more than 1 Litre.**
