Wondering where to start with pet care manufacturing or creating products for pets? Here’s everything you need to know about the pet industry and the science behind creating shampoos and conditioners that are safe for pets.

The pet care industry is growing

The global pet care market was valued at USD 235.32 billion in 2022, and it’s projected to grow from USD to USD 368.88 billion by 2030. The global pet grooming services market was estimated at USD 5.38 billion in 2021, with a 7% rise predicted until 2030.

Pet care and grooming is a growing industry, with pet ownership rising globally - particularly during and after the pandemic. In Australia, over a million pets were adopted at the height of Covid-19. Rising pet expenditure, an increasing number of pet grooming businesses, expansion of pet service offerings and pet humanisation are all responsible for this growth in the pet care industry too.

Pet shampoo and conditioners: what you need to know

When it comes to creating shampoo and conditioner for pets, it’s important to understand why formulation is so important and why it needs to be approached from a scientific perspective. These grooming essentials are more than just a bubbly bath-time ritual, they’re carefully crafted solutions designed to meet the specific needs of different pets.

Understanding pet hair and skin

Dogs, cats, and other furry companions have different needs when it comes to creating shampoos and conditioners. As pet care manufacturers and experts, we understand the differences and the importance of creating products that work for each pet’s specific needs. 

Their fur and skin is often completely different, and for some types of pets, scented products that are safe on the skin are essential. Fragrances should be gentle and pet-friendly, making sure that the experience is enjoyable for both the pet and their human companion.

Ingredients are key

As expert pet shampoo manufacturers, we pay close attention to the ingredients we use in our pet care products, while listening to our clients needs. Whether you’re focusing on natural ingredients like aloe vera, oatmeal and chamomile, or looking for ingredients to promote a healthy coat, moisturise the skin or prevent irritation, we’ll always work with you to get the right ingredients.

Just like human skin, a pet's skin has a specific pH level. As pet shampoo manufacturers we always make sure that products are pH-balanced to maintain the natural oils on the skin, preventing dryness and irritation. Some pets can struggle with allergies, which can mean that creating hypoallergenic formulas becomes a priority.

Quality matters

Quality in pet care manufacturing is incredibly important, and it all comes down to keeping our furry friends healthy and happy. Using premium ingredients and high-quality formulations ensures that our pets stay in tip-top shape and enjoy a high quality of life.

Quality in pet care manufacturing also builds trust among pet owners, which keeps owners coming back to brands that provide safe, consistent and effective products for their pets. It’s also essential if you’re selling your products to pet grooming businesses, as repeat business depends on the quality of their services and the products that they use.

Balancing science and nature

On one hand, science-driven research and innovation have improved the quality and choice in pet care products, but owners are also looking for nature-inspired, holistic and organic ingredients due to concerns about the long-term health effects of artificial ingredients.

Striking a balance between science and nature allows pet owners to choose from a wider range of products that align with their values and their pets' preferences. It also addresses the environmental impact of pet care manufacturing by encouraging the use of sustainable sourcing and eco-friendly practices.
