  • Please help formulating dog detangler

    Posted by gunther on January 11, 2019 at 10:35 pm

    Lots of dog detanglers seem identical to human ones:

    They comprise
    behentrimonium methosulfate / chloride, or cetrimonium chloride
    cetyl or cetearyl alcohol
    some contain silicones
    and of course water and preservatives.

    I realized
    A. Dogs don’t like sprays, so rub on liquids/creams are better.
    B. Human conditioners work fine but dogs need more detangling than humans do. 

    1 Is amodimethicone preferable to dimethicone?
    2 Is a high-slip silicone like Polyox desirable?
    3 Are additional cationics like stearamidopropyl dimethylamine, cationic guar or polyquaterniums needed or its overkill?
    4 Isothazolinones are toxic for pets. Are parabens OK?
    5 Any other advice?
