Scentsational Pets, Northfield salon plan benefit for local animal rescues

After Keeley Kossof gave delivery to her son, she shed 90% of her eyesight.

She had been carrying out hair and make-up in her father’s salon, Teddie Kossof Salon Spa in Northfield, for much more than 10 decades. Whilst she experienced to prevent working as a stylist, she discovered an additional outlet for her skills.

“We were being producing an odor-neutralizing products for females who don’t wash their hair each individual day,” the Vernon Hills resident said.

Which is when it dawned on her: That product or service could be utilised on pets.

“Natural beauty and wellness are not just for people,” Kossof stated. “So which is how my companion and I began Scentsational Animals.”

She was released by a mutual to her small business partner, fellow animal lover and now very good close friend, Lori Cooper of Buffalo Grove, and they investigated and produced Scentsational Pets, fragrances that are risk-free for both of those pets and their people.

The products and solutions, which arrive in three scents — citrus, lavender and aloe, and rosewater and coconut oil — can be utilised anyplace, from entire body to bed, on any animal.

“We did a ton of analysis on animals and their perception of scent,” Kossof said. “These are analyzed and proven, researched fragrances that are harmless and suitable to animals.”

To be very clear, these are not perfumes that only mask odors. They basically neutralize smells. And if you’ve ever had a moist doggy or a cat with some (how do I say this politely?) intestinal distress (?) you know how important it is to get. rid. of. that. scent.

Groomers are significant followers, way too.

Jennifer Bishop-Jenkins, intercontinental licensed Master Groomer and qualified canine aesthetician, who owns Appreciate Fur Puppies in Glencoe and is president of the Illinois Qualified Pet Groomers Association, is a person of Scentsational Pets latest followers and suppliers. Scentsational Animals is the initial merchandise of its sort that she has endorsed and carried in her retail outlet.

“This line respects the amazing perception of odor dogs have and truly operates as built — as an odor neutralizer,” Bishop-Jenkins mentioned in a information launch. “Perfumes for dogs are harmful, and Scentsational Animals is not a fragrance. It was designed for the animal and then its proprietor, and it positive aspects both of those.”
