Our pets are family, so it’s important to us to use quality products that are beneficial. Just like ingredients are important to us, they are likewise as important for our fur babies as well! Finding a great pet shampoo that I can use for both our pup and our cat has been a little challenging, so I was excited for the opportunity review John Paul pet products!
Disclosure: I received complimentary products to facilitate my John Paul Pet review. Regardless, all opinions are my own and those of my family.
When I first saw the emphasis John Paul Pet puts on the fact that the products aren’t tested on pets but rather on humans first, I knew this was a company I could trust. Right away I knew they see pets as family just like we do, and that’s important! Plus, their mission as a company is to educate and serve the pet community. I love it!
Our pup, Caprice, and our cat, Bart, have a lot of things in common – they’re both big, they love any kind of food (Bart even prefers to eat the dog food), they like to play with the kids, etc. What they do not have in common, though, is the type of cat they have. Caprice is a Cane Corso (Italian Mastiff), so she has a short, rough coat that sheds from the top coat. Bart is a Maine Coon, so he has a fluffy, long coat that sheds from the undercoat. So when it comes to bathing I have often had to just use different products for each!
That’s why I was intrigued by the Oatmeal Systems offered by John Paul Pet. The Oatmeal Systems are designed for both dogs and cats for soothing dry skin and coats. Caprice has very dry skin and while Bart doesn’t, I am always looking for something to keep his coat soft and manageable. I knew the Oatmeal Systems would be ideal products I could use for both pets!
For my review I received the Oatmeal Shampoo and Oatmeal Conditioning Spray. I love that they use Aloe, Chamomile and Sweet Almond Oil. They are all great ingredients for keeping healthy skin and a healthy coat. Both products have the same scent, and it is light and pleasant. Although it is light, it does a great job of actually keeping their coat smelling nice! Many times I find the scent is gone shortly after the bath, but these products have an enduring scent.
The Oatmeal Shampoo has a nice, thick consistency and lathers nicely. I found even for Caprice (who is 125lbs), I didn’t have to use an abundant amount. For Bart, I was able to easily work it through his long coat as well. It rinses nicely and doesn’t leave any residue.
The Oatmeal Conditioning Spray is amazing! It can be sprayed on either a damp or dry coat and them simply brushed through. It has really helped to keep Bart’s coat manageable, and he’s no longer getting tangles, which was a common problem. Plus, I can use the Conditioner Spray any time either of them needs freshening up without a bath. They can smell good without all the fuss!
Overall, I am definitely pleased with the John Paul Pet products. Caprice’s dry skin has seen major improvements, and she isn’t itching nearly as much! Her coat looks clean and shiny. For Bart, his coat is now softer and more manageable. Obviously, we bathe him less since he’s a cat, so the Oatmeal Spray has been great for not only keeping his coat soft and manageable, but keeping him fresh as well! Both of their coats look so healthy now!
