No harsh chemicals, made with only two ingredients...I have not tried this, but a friend uses this & she says it really works but takes a while to see any change, but plan on trying this...if you use this let me know how it does...

I can't wait to try this! I noticed that in the reviews that dogs love this. Dogs love chocolate and garlic. Garlic is healthy for dogs, however chocolate is VERY toxic for them. My friend's Golden Retriever died after he got into a box of chocolates that were gift wrapped, under the Christmas tree and he only ate 5. Bless his heart. We all laughed until he passed and the vet told us why, it was so sad. Don't know if there is enough cocoa in this to kill a dog, but it might make them sick (especially a little puppy). Just thought I'd caution those who are not aware of this.


  1. Add pure cocoa powder to lotion, stirring till completely mixed & to desired color (looks darker in lotion than on skin).
  2. Add to lotion bottle pump to use.
