LVL 4 - Working with oils and butters
Oils and butters are a valuable ally of the groomer and the skin of dogs and cats. They go first, on a first purely practical aspect, to facilitate the work of disentangling and moulting care. Then, they will allow, in a very simple way, to manage many skin problems. They can be integrated very easily into the grooming process and enhance products already in use, regardless of the brand. Finally, for people who want to start making their own cosmetics, they allow simple products for beginners to be made. They will also allow you to create your own soaps. I suggest starting with oils with high foaming power for the psychological aspect and because these oils already do a very good job on a lot of hair and skin types.

Oils can be used in a number of ways, from the simplest to a little more elaborate.
Butters and vegetable oils exist in very large numbers. You don't have to use them all. You just need to make a balanced selection that is right for you based on the skin and hair you are grooming.
