OUR INGREDIENTS.

A great guide to see what exactly goes into Hooper Ruff products. Yeah. We are upfront. 

AQUA (WATER)

Dog Wash | Dog Soap

Water is primarily used as a solvent ( A solvent is a substance that dissolves a liquid, solid or gas, resulting in a solution.) in personal care products in which it dissolves many of the ingredients that impart skin benefits, such as conditioning agents and cleansing agents. Water also forms emulsions in which the oil and water components of the product are combined to form creams and lotions.

CITRIC ACID

Lemons

POTASSIUM HYDROXIDE

Dog Wash 

When making liquid soap from scratch, there’s one thing you just can’t avoid: Potassium Hydroxide. Without lye, your soap just isn’t soap!  Soap is made by saponifying a fat or oil with an alkali. A fat or oil is a triglyceride, which means that three fatty acids of various carbon lengths are attached to a glycerin backbone. The alkali is potassium hydroxide (potash) for liquid soap. Alkali is made by running electricity through salt water.

The saponification process is a simple one-step reaction with no waste generated: the glycerin is split off from the fatty acids, and the fatty acids combine with the sodium or potassium to form soap, while the hydroxide forms water. The result is soap, glycerin and water (no alkali remains in our soaps).

GLYCERIN

Dog Wash 

Vegetable glycerin, also known as glycerol or glycerine, is a clear liquid typically made from soybean, coconut or palm oils. Vegetable glycerin is particularly popular in the cosmetic industry as it is believed to provide health benefits, ranging from skin health to better hydration. Glycerin is used on all skin types, especially helps treat oily skin that’s prone to acne or wrinkles. Very moisturizing while stimulating and rejuvenating skin cells.

Natural Soap

POTASSIUM CITRATE 

Dog Soap

Potassium Citrate is a natural salt derived from the acid of citrus fruits. It is also a buffering agent, which minimizes the change in the PH.

Water Drops

SODIUM HYDROXIDE

Dog Soap

When making hard soap from scratch, there’s one thing you just can’t avoid: Sodium Hydroxide (lye). Without lye, your soap just isn’t soap!  Soap is made by saponifying a fat or oil with an alkali. A fat or oil is a triglyceride, which means that three fatty acids of various carbon lengths are attached to a glycerin backbone. The alkali is sodium hydroxide (lye) for hard soap bars. Alkali is made by running electricity through salt water.

The saponification process is a simple one-step reaction with no waste generated: the glycerin is split off from the fatty acids, and the fatty acids combine with the sodium or potassium to form soap, while the hydroxide forms water. The result is soap, glycerin and water (no alkali remains in our soaps).

Clean

SODIUM LACTATE

Dog Soap

Sodium lactate is the sodium salt of lactic acid. It is produced by fermentation of a sugar source, such as corn or beets, and then it is neutralized resulting in lactic acid.
