Bio-Groom Vita Oil Absorbable Coat Oil has been specifically developed by Bio-Derm Laboratories to fill the need for a special coat oil that gives maximum conditioning and protection to the coat and keeps it in top condition between shows.
Formulated with pure cosmetic oils, it has been fortified with natural Wheat Germ Oil, Lanolin Oil and essential Vitamin E. Deeply conditions and strengthens the hair and gives the coat natural resiliency. Prevents matting and tangling and eliminates static electricity. Helps repair overworked damaged hair and leaves the coat shiny and easy to brush or comb. Moisturizes the skin to relieve dryness and flaking. Vita Oil has a pleasant fragrance, is non-irritating and does not contain alcohol or silicone. Will not affect the natural color or texture of the coat. Completely dissolves in water and washes out easily with Bio-Groom Shampoo.
Shampoo with Bio-Groom Shampoo, rinse well and squeeze excess water from the coat. For oil conditioning of the dog's coat, use 3-4 tablespoons of Vita Oil per gallon (3.8 liters) of warm water. For cats, use 3 tablespoons or less per gallon. Pour or sponge over entire coat until thoroughly saturated. Work well through the coat, so the oil is distributed to the skin. Dry as usual. (For Malteses, use heavier concentration and check coat after 3 days.) As a brushing aid for dogs and cats, mix half a tablespoon or less with a pint (0.5 liter) of warm water and spray in the coat.
For added conditioning, the Coat Oil may be used together with Bio-Groom Super Cream at a ratio of about 1 part Vita Oil to 4 parts Super Cream in warm water. (Example: To a quart (0.9 liter) of water, add 1 tablespoon of Vita Oil and 4 tablespoons of Super Cream. All of the above ratios may be decreased or increased depending on the texture and condition of the coat and the results desired.
I have been using Vita Oil on my Shar Pei for more than a year. This oil is not heavy or greasy, but provides a good coat of moisture on his skin. I love this product as it not only moisturizes his skin but also makes his coat shine.
