My Itchy Dog – do you have one?

Dog owners are always commenting on ‘my itchy dog’

So we decided to focus on one of our herbal formulas specifically aimed at owners with who complain about  My itchy dog.

Dermaphyte  – Our Herbal formula aimed at owners who have a ‘My  itchy dog


This wonderful herbal formula derives if name from ‘Derma’ meaning  the root of the skin and ‘phyte ‘ meaning a plant like substance – bringing the two word together simply means “plant’s  to support the skin” and support the skin it does from the inside to out.

The origins of this formula are rooted in Traditional Chinese Medicine which consider  many skin problems to come from  excesses in the body. Simply put, too much of anything or a combination of the wrong ingredients leading to the immune system attempting to rid the body of what it considers wastes or pollution.

The herbs Potentilla, Sophora ,and Oregon Grape,  clear heat, dry dampness and  calm flaring skin  conditions. No single herb in the formula has been shown to be effective on its own. The combination of herbs, like most Traditional Chinese Herbal formals work together to achieve a desired result.  Click here to read more
