Just like people, your pet can experience allergies too. DOUXO® Calm can help provide your dog or cat with relief from the discomfort of itching and inflammation due to allergies.
What is DOUXO® Calm?
DOUXO® Calm is a unique formulation of ingredients shown to help reduce inflammation, soothe irritated and itchy skin, and help repair and restore the skin barrier.
DOUXO® Calm replenishes the barrier that protects your pet from allergens and irritants and is clinically proven to help improve skin hydration in 3 weeks (see chart).2 The skin becomes more supple which can help reduce the sensation of itching.
DOUXO® Calm Shampoo and Mousse protocol has been clinically proven to help to control pruritus (itching) in dogs.3 DOUXO® Calm Mousse has been clinically shown to help reduce inflammation and help restore the skin barrier within 5 days.4
- Helps interrupt the vicious cycle of pruritus (itching)
- Helps provide relief from skin inflammation
- Helps restore the skin barrier
DOUXO® Calm contains Phytosphingosine
DOUXO® Calm contains the molecule Phytosphingosine, a pro-ceramide to help rebuild the natural ceramides to support a healthy skin barrier.
Phytosphingosine is a key player in helping maintain a healthy skin barrier. A healthy skin barrier:
- Retains moisture
- Maintains normal bacterial and yeast flora
- Helps balance microflora
- Ensures normal cell turnover
DOUXO® Calm also contains Pseudofilaggrin
The skin of dogs with allergies is deficient in filaggrin. Filaggrin is a protein that helps the skin develop properly to form the outermost protective layer of skin.
DOUXO® Calm contains pseudofilaggrin (Saccharomyces cervisiae extract) to help skin cells develop correctly and also help the skin retain moisture.
