Question of regulation. There is no cosmetics in veterinary medicine. As there is no specific regulation, they are considered as chemical mixtures (as detergent) and that’s why the pet skin care can have warning signs.

There are 2 types : drugs and others. Drugs = no signs. Others = yes, all have signs, excepted complementary feed (feed & food) which has their own regulation.

Those signs are a warning for irritation in eyes and impact on the environment for people who don’t bath their pet in a bathtub.

All the ingredients were carefully selected for their high tolerance on both human and pet skin. Ophytrium, our governing ingredient was tested on in vitro canine and human skin models and directly on human skin, with an excellent tolerance. All final formulas had their tolerance validated to guarantee a high level of safety.  In addition, those products have been tested in many clinical studies involving hundreds of pets that needed the products and tolerance was excellent.

DOUXO® S3 PYO products contain chlorhexidine, that can be caustic for the eyes. Avoid any contact with the eyes.
Other mousses had been tested and not recognised as irritant. Nonetheless, avoid contact with ocular mucosa.
