Why is the patent pending Gentle Groomer better for the skin and coat?

  • Stimulates blood flow for healthier skin and coat.
  • Relaxes hair follicles so that the hairs lie flat.
  • Distributes the skin’s natural oils for softness and shine.

What is the StripHair Gentle Groomer made of?

Betty’s proprietary rubber blend was formulated to prevent the growth of bacteria and fungus. The rubber’s unique grip is a product of a complex formulation for optimal performance, with just the right amount of softness for comfort.   

How does the Gentle Groomer remove hair utilizing a flat edge?

The material of the StripHair Gentle Groomer is a custom-blend of rubber that was formulated with an extra “grip” factor for removing loose hair, comfortably and effectively.

What are the unique features of the StripHair Gentle Groomer?

  • Flexibility: Conforms to the body and comfortably grooms bony areas
  • Size: 9-inch length is ideal for grooming medium to large-size animals.

How do I clean my StripHair Groomer?

For general cleaning, simply rinse with water or wipe with a dampened cloth. Mild soap and warm water or a disinfectant may be used to ensure contaminants are not passed on from one animal to another. Air dry.

What are the advantages of using the StripHair Groomer instead of a metal shedding tool or blade?

The Gentle Groomer will not fray hairs, which means a glossier finish on the coat. It removes dirt trapped beneath the hair without any need for harsh movements or sharp edges. Using the flat edge of the StripHair Groomer will not irritate the skin or create dander.  And, you can safely use The Gentle Groomer on sensitive areas like the face and legs.

Can StripHair replace other grooming tools?

Absolutely! The Gentle Groomer sheds, dislodges, removes, erases, warms, lathers, squeegees and massages. It’s an all-in-one tool that will simplify your grooming routine.
