Protecting your pet's skin with the blessings of nature
Gently protect your pet's skin
"SKIN PROTECT SPRAY" is a gentle spray for pets' delicate skin, made mainly from essential oil and natural ingredients from Hokkaido's akaezomatsu."
In addition to preventing and improving inflammation of the pet's skin, it also prevents bacterial and fungal infections. It also prevents viral infections through its insect repellent effect. In addition, the fresh fragrance of akaezomatsu essential oil can be expected to deodorize and relax pets.
The impetus for Healthy Animals' development of the "SKIN PROTECT SPRAY" came from the representative, Mr. Sakata's beloved dog's otitis externa. The dog is a beagle with cute droopy ears.
The inside of the drooping ears were steamed and irritated by the growth of Malassezia bacteria, causing itching and a peculiar Malassezia smell. Some of you may have the same problem.
Malassezia is generally treated with medications and antibiotics.
Of course, that is also an important treatment.
However, as a pet owner, you do not want to rely too much on medication alone, but would prefer to cure the disease with food and natural remedies if possible.
With this in mind, we began research with Dairy Farm University (Ebetsu City, Hokkaido), a prestigious veterinary school, and completed the "SKIN PROTECT SPRAY.

In developing the SKIN PROTECT SPRAY, we met Dr. Hiroshi Yokota, professor emeritus at Dairy Farming University, who introduced us to the essential oil of the akaezomatsu essential oil grown in Hokkaido. Dr. Yokota has long been conducting scientific research on the antibacterial and anti-cancer effects of essential oils, which are also used in human aromatherapy.
Research at Dairy Farm University has confirmed and announced that the very fragrant "Akaezomatsu essential oil" is effective for relaxation, antibacterial and sterilization, and can be safely used on pets and is expected to have positive effects. (*2)

What kind of tree is Akaezomatsu?
The akaezomatsu is abundant in the coniferous forests of eastern Hokkaido and is called "goddess tree" by the Ainu people. The largest trees are over 20 meters tall and 1 meter in diameter, and together with Ezo spruce and Abies sachalinensis form coniferous forests that are brimming with vitality.
The essential oil extracted from the branches and leaves has been proven to improve skin inflammation, antibacterial, relaxing, and many other effects.
A small amount of essential oil can be obtained from many branches and leaves.
◎Prevention and improvement of atopy and dermatitis.
◎Mosquito and bee control
Case01. a case of Malassezia fungal infection (miniature dachshund)

The patient's condition was not improved by the main drug treatment, but after using the spray, the condition improved.
At the beginning of use, redness was as expected, but improvement was seen from about the third day, and from the seventh day, the redness disappeared and the itching disappeared.
From the 7th day, the redness disappeared and the itchiness also disappeared, and from the 21st day, hairs started to grow.
The forest fragrance derived from the essential oil of the akaezomatsu tree is pleasant and relaxing.

The essential oil used in "SKIN PROTECT SPRAY" is all produced in Hokkaido.
The akaezomatsu grows slowly because it prefers a particularly harsh environment, and is a rare and precious tree that accounts for only 4-5% of all conifers and about one-third of Ezo spruce.
However, extraction of essential oil requires a large number of branches and leaves. For this reason, we collect mainly thinned branches and leaves in several production areas in eastern Hokkaido, and carefully extract the essential oil by steam distillation.
The deep fragrance of the carefully produced essential oil of akaezomatsu is said to be "soft and like being embraced by a deep forest," and has an excellent relaxation effect.
We have received many positive comments from our customers who have used the "SKIN PROTECT SPRAY". Here are some of them.
I had been suffering from pyoderma (a bacterial skin infection that causes itching, redness, hair loss, eczema, etc.) since I was a puppy. When antibiotics stopped working, I came across "SKIN PROTECT" and have been using it ever since.
I spray it on the affected area 2 to 3 times a day.
I also put a little "SKIN PROTECT SPRAY" in the bathtub when I shampoo. The condition is much better now.
Before useThe skin around the neck area was peeling, hair loss, and painful with intense itching.
After useThe condition has improved considerably, the scabs have lifted and the skin has regained its cleanliness!
Since he was a puppy, his belly, armpits, etc. became red and itchy, and he went to the hospital at the change of seasons.
After applying "SKIN PROTECT SPRAY" every day and continuing daily care, I now have no redness and no need to go to the hospital.
Q1What kind of pets do you recommend "SKIN PROTECT SPRAY" for?
In particular, many dog owners use this product. We especially hope that owners suffering from otitis externa, atopic dermatitis, and other diseases that many dogs are prone to and are difficult to treat will use this product.
In addition, while there are various treatment methods such as shampoos and food, many pet owners do not want to use medication on a long-term basis because of concerns about the burden on the body, such as diarrhea, loss of appetite, and other internal organ damage, although the medication has an immediate effect.
We believe that "SKIN PROTECT SPRAY" is a product that can reduce the burden on pets' bodies and the anxiety of pet owners.
Q2How long can a 120 ml bottle of "SKIN PROTECT SPRAY" be used for?
For standard use, spraying 2-3 times a day on a partially affected area such as the inside of an ear, one push of 0.5 ml can be used for approximately one month or more. For general use, it depends on the breed (body size) and usage.
Q3I heard that some essential oils in aromatherapy are contraindicated for pets.Is the red spruce essential oil used in the SKIN PROTECT SPRAY safe?
The safety of the essential oil of akaezomatsu when used on pets has been confirmed in clinical studies at Dairy Farming University. Also, due to the nature of the product, which is applied directly to the skin, we have taken the safety of both pets and owners into consideration in the concentration of the oil in our products.
Q4Does "SKIN PROTECT SPRAY" contain ingredients other than akaezomatsu essential oil that are good for pets' skin?
In addition to akaezomatsu essential oil, the product contains the following ingredients that are expected to have the following effects
- Capsicum root extract (moisturizes the skin and prevents rough skin)
