Non-toxic chemical, undetectable in tissue or waste after ingested. 

Lemon grass

Lavender Orange Essential Oil
Fragrance Value and smoothing to our senses. 

Sodium Chloride
Basically salt, primary function as an inert filler.

Citric Acid
Increase the effectiveness of surfactants(refer to above), highly soluble and bio-degradable. 

Alkyl Alcohol c10-c16
Surfactants, biodegradable,  not genotoxic, mutagenic, or carcinogenic

Aqua

User Review

[I don’t normally do cleaning though] My mum said it smells good and cleans well. Got this product as I want no chemicals going into my dog’s body, orally or otherwise. Many chemicals in detergent are residing on the floor, and is also one of the concerns when dogs start getting skin issues since all these chemical are skin irritant. Used to use dettol and realized that phenol is not metabolize by many animals, especially cats and  could cause poisoning after prolonged oral intake ( Through licking ). Hence i would recommend go natural or, in this case, go for an enzyme based cleaning agent. Refer to the sources below on how enzyme based detergent works 😉

User Review

If you’re still using chemical based, synthetic compound formulated repellent products, it’s time to make the change. BUZZ! pet spray, on the first look, has plenty of natural oils with insect repelling properties. The ingredient matches the product description well. It smells good ( subjective ) on my girl and seems to work really well keeping her ticks free ( We do heavy outdoor activities ). It’s rather long-lasting as I can still feel and smell the repellent after 4 hours. Doesn’t matt up the fur and it’s easy to brush her even with the spray on. Overall, it’s a highly natural product that’s even suitable for human use.

P.S The spray head is really wonderful.
