At kin+kind, we use natural and organic ingredients because our pups are family. Our inputs are always sustainably and responsibly sourced. Every single item is veterinarian tested and approved for safe use on all breeds of dogs.
We manufacture in our own U.S. facility to guarantee ethical production and to give back to our community. All of our employees are paid a living wage well above industry standards.
We love the premium ingredients used in the kin+kind line. Take a look below, and you will too.
Aloe: derived from the aloe plant, aloe gel soothes and heals.
Beeswax: rich in vitamin A, beeswax helps moisturize and heal the skin.
Essential Oils: Our essential oils sourced from the United States, Australia, India, and Europe. They are therapeutic grade to give pups an aromatherapy lift each day.
Organic Jojoba Oil: made from the seed of the jojoba bush, this oil moisturizes and is rich with vitamin E and antibacterial properties.

Shea Butter: extracted from the nut of the shea tree, this oil is excellent all-natural moisturizer. It is naturally rich in vitamins A and E.
Tea Tree Oil: like coconut oil, tea tree oil is an all-natural source of antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal properties. Used in low concentration to prevent toxicity even if accidentally ingested. Products containing tea tree oil should not be used on cats.
Vitamin E: pure vitamin E sourced from the United States help moisturize and heal the skin.

Natural Preservative (phenoxyethanol and caprylyl glycol): It's a mouthful, but its natural. Phenoxyethanol can be found in green tea; caprylyl glycol is a fatty acid found palm and coconut oils. Together, they fight off invisible bacteria and microbe. This ensures that your natural products remain safe. Because there is no governmental oversight for the use of natural preservatives, we follow the highest self regulatory standards. Like all of our ingredients, our preservatives meet the Whole Foods Premium Body Care Standards for natural products.
Potassium Citrate: A natural potassium salt derived from the citric acid of citrus fruits. It is used to regulate the PH levels.
Potassium Palm Kernel Acid: Extracted from the kernel of the palm fruit, this all natural, biodegradable moisturizing oil protects the skin.
Saponified Organic Sunflower Oil and Organic Coconut Oil: saponification is the transformation of oil into soap. We use organic oils for all-natural and gentle base to our shampoos.
Aloe Vera Leaf Juice Powder: heal and soothe irritated skin

Organic Coconut and Organic Coconut Oil: our non-GMO coconut is washed in pure, filtered water without chemicals and then dehydrated at low temperatures (below 98.6°F) to preserve its raw state with all of its natural nutrients. Our virgin coconut oils are made from the first pressing of fresh coconut without the addition of any chemicals. Compare RBD ("refined, bleached, deodorized") coconut found in supermarkets: dried in high heat, refined with lye, bleached with acid and alkaline clays, and then deodorized at high heat. This process removes much of the nutrients.
