Human-grade Pet Shampoo
Afloat is a renowned hair care brand in Japan. As Afloat is already an established brand for human products, human-grade ingredients are used in Afloat Dog series. These ingredients are verified for safety and passed the “cosmetic ingredients standards” from the Japan government.
This is unlike other pet shampoo manufacturers who have no experience in human products. Pet grooming products are not regulated in Japan so anyone can come up with their own pet shampoo easily. Such products are free to use any ingredients as well.
