All You Need to Know About Dog Paw & Nose Balm
We love our canine companions and it’s important to take care of their paws and noses just as we’d take care of our own bodies. That’s why we created Rhoose Point Remedies Dog Paw & Nose Balm.
Sensitive Paws & Noses
Dog paw pads are still vulnerable to damage and our canine companions are susceptible to wear and tear from time to time. There’s a whole load of factors that can cause sensitivity in your dog’s paws, like:
- Rough terrain (gravel or rocky areas)
- Sharp objects (sharp stones, and foreign objects on the ground)
- Cold and harsh weather
- Hot ground in the summer like tarmac paths
- Frozen ground and snow
- Salts and grit used on icy surfaces
Dog noses are much the same. Although they’re not always on the ground in the same way their paws are, they can still become dry and cracked – especially in the colder winter months.
Using Rhoose Point Remedies Paw & Nose Balm will nourish, repair, and protect dog paw pads and noses. Our organic balm has a waxy consistency which moisturises without clogging pores. In the same way that we use lip balm to treat and nourish our chapped lips, your dog’s paws and nose needs regular care and attention.
Our balm has three main benefits for your best friend:
What is Dog Paw & Nose Balm?
What is it used for?
Our Dog Paw & Nose Balm is designed to treat injured paws and noses, and can be used for a variety of different purposes, such as…
- Dry paws
- Cracked paw pads
- Dry Nose
- Cracked Nose
- Skin irritation
- Injuries from hyperkeratosis
Our balm can be an important part of your dog’s regular grooming and care routine.
Even if your dog currently shows none of the above symptoms, our Dog Paw & Nose Balm can help prevent potential injuries in the future, keeping their skin soft, moisturised and protected.
What's in it?
Our Nose & Paw balm is packed full of amazing natural ingredients which all work simultaneously to moisturise, heal, and protect.
These ingredients are:
Our balm is 100% Natural Beeswax-based. Beeswax is a great foundation for our balm, because it is rich in vitamin A which assists in the healing process of the skin.
Beeswax is also a ‘humectant.’ That means it absorbs and holds moisture. This is particularly helpful for areas which are susceptible to dehydration, such as the muzzle, nose and paw pads.
We only use BBKA (British Beekeeping Association) approved 100% pure, unrefined, organic beeswax in our balm. That means there are no added ingredients used in the extraction or production processes.
Our raw organic coconut oil is cold pressed. We use only fresh, organic coconuts. The coconut oil is not refined, meaning it is not mixed with any other foreign properties or heat treated (this removes its nutritional properties), so our coconut oil is completely pure.
Coconut oil is antifungal, antiviral and antibacterial. This makes it a great component for our balm. This also means it’s a natural antibiotic, and a natural replacement for chemical antibacterials found in chemical-based treatments. It’s also safe to eat, so it’s okay if your dog licks it.
Some other dog balms on the market contain the refined coconut oil mentioned above. The refined coconut oil is heat treated and has most of it’s nutritional properties stripped from the ingredient. Some dogs have shown an allergic reaction to refined coconut oil which is why we have chosen to only include unrefined, cold pressed and nutritionally optimal coconut oil only.
We use unrefined shea butter, which means that no pesticides were added to the shea nuts that have been extracted to create this thick butter. Shea butter is also super rich in vitamins A, E, F and K – which all have incredible nourishing properties.
Shea butter is one of the most nourishing and moisturising natural ingredients for the skin and is often used to combat irritating and sometimes painful skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis.
Sweet Almond Oil is incredibly rich in moisture due to its high Vitamin E content. Its hydrating properties help to secure moisture onto dog paws and noses.
The sweet almond oil in our balm is refined and has no natural scent so that it doesn’t offend our sensitive dogs’ noses whilst maintaining it’s skin treating properties.
Our Vitamin E oil is derived from sunflowers. Our distilled oil helps to soothe irritation and itchiness.
Some Vitamin E oils added in other dog balms on the market contain synthetically produced Vitamin E oil produced from petrochemicals which are not only toxic to pets and humans but bad for our environment too!
Rhoose Point Remedies only ever use the highest quality, natural ingredients to ensure that our products are the safest they can be for you, your loved ones, your pets and the environment.
Calendula oil is used in many skincare recipes that are designed to soothe irritated skin and help heal minor skin damage. It has numerous benefits like aiding to reduce acne, eczema and skin irritations. It improves the overall appearance of skin and helps to keep it hydrated,
Calendula balm is ideal for use on sensitive skin. A study found calendula extract improves wound healing recovery and reduces inflammation of the skin
Why did we choose these ingredients?
It’s really important to us that our balm is non-toxic and lick-safe.
Dogs are curious creatures, and they use their sensitive tongues to clean themselves. When they sense a different texture on their skin, they will certainly investigate using their tongues. That means we must use ingredients that are safe to ingest.
That’s why all of our ingredients are 100%…
- Safe for dogs

How Often Should You Apply Dog Paw & Nose Balm?
We recommend using our Dog Paw & Nose Balm in three different ways:
1. When your dog shows signs or symptoms of needing extra skin, paw and nose care such as irritated, sore skin, a dry/cracked nose or dry/cracked paws
During these times, you should apply the balm generously as often as you feel is needed. Dog owners that apply the balm to their pet’s symptomatic areas have shown improvements in as little as 2 days!
2. To protect against the elements
Our Dog Paw & Nose Balm should be applied before each walk, if walking on rough terrain.
Apply in the summer especially in the height of season when the ground can be hot as an extra barrier of protection for their paws. (Remember though, please keep your dog safe and avoid walking your dog in during the hottest parts of the day!)
We recommend also applying on cold or icy days when the ground is sometimes covered in salty grit that can irritate your best friend’s feet. Apply before your walk and on returning home, wash your dog’s paws to remove harmful substances and reapply the balm as an extra protection.
3. As a regular part of your dog’s grooming routine.
Dog balm does not have to only be used to heal wounds. It can also be used as a regular part of your dogs grooming routine to help prevent injuries and skin irritation from ever occurring and to help keep their skin, paws and noses in top condition
Apply at night when your pooch is ready to settle for bed to allow the balm to soak into the paws, nose and skin.
