Introducing Silkstem™ Spray Foam Aerosol Shampoo

If you own a pet, you know first-hand that bath time is no fun. Even your pet would rather skip it! Whether you have a dog or a cat, bathing plays an important role in your pet’s health that cannot be overlooked. That’s why we created an innovative solution that focuses on their overall cleaning and well-being.

Silkstem Spray Foam Shampoo was designed with you and your pet in mind. It has an easy spray foam application that revolutionizes the way you see bath time, all the while taking good care of your pet’s coat and skin.

Bath time, made easy!

What makes our shampoo unique?

What our customers say about it

“We’ve used it on a couple of dogs now and have to say that the product works great! Both of the dogs we used it on had black coats and you could definitely see that their coats were dry and full of dander prior to bathing. The Silkstem has a wonderful clean, refreshing scent to it, and was easy to use. The bottle seems like it should last a long time, as we didn’t need to use much of it per dog. I’ve attached a couple before and after shots to show you the difference! It definitely left their coats dander free and brought the lustre back.”

Coactiv+™ Technology and Biofilms

Silkstem™ Spray Foam Shampoo contains our scientifically formulated coactiv+™ technology that works to selectively reduce biofilm accumulation, restoring the balance of skin microflora. This soothes non-complicated skin irritations, itching, redness and dryness associated with common skin conditions.

Formulated with GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) ingredients, the shampoo also acts as a conditioner and helps to maintain and improve the health and appearance of the fur.

What are biofilms?

Biofilms are when bacteria and fungi aggregate and excrete a glue-like substance that allows them to attach to a surface as well as provide protection from the environment. Biofilms can form on both living and non-living surfaces, including on your pet’s skin and teeth. Biofilm formation can make bacteria up to 1,000 times more resistant to antibiotics, antimicrobials and the host immune system, and can be a major cause of chronic skin irritations.

How does Silkstem affect biofilms?

Our Silkstem spray foam shampoo uses our patent-pending coactiv+™ technology to weaken the biofilm structure by depriving the bacteria of key nutrients and biofilm building blocks. This exposes bacteria to eradication by our antimicrobial ingredients and helps to reduce the itching, redness and irritation associated with common skin irritations.
