Groomer's Review of Tropiclean Berry Clean Dog Shampoo
I really enjoy using Tropiclean Berry Clean pet shampoo in my salon. It smells great, works well, and is quick and easy to lather and rinse.
Berry Clean's unique formulation is designed to clean the dirtiest pets while creating a shiny, luxurious coat. Natural protein and raspberry extract replenish the natural moisture balance of the skin and coat. Routine bathing leaves the skin and coat soft, shiny and looking great.
"Wow!" That was what I said when I tried this shampoo in my grooming salon for the first time. My next word was "Yum!" This shampoo smells great! If you enjoy the smell of cherry chap-stick, then you are going to fall head-over-heels for the aromatic properties of this shampoo.
This is one of those shampoo scents that makes for a great pick-me-up on a hectic grooming day! Pet owners, take note! If giving your dog a bath at home stresses you out, you may find that using a shampoo that has a happy, spring-time scent will make the process a little more pleasurable.
After your dog is clean and dry you will still be able to smell this shampoo on them, but it's not overwhelming. Your pup will have a slightly sweet berry smell that's just right for snuggle time.
Most shampoos that are marketed toward professional groomers, even when also marketed toward pet owners, are very thick and really made to be diluted prior to use. That's not the case with this shampoo! Even at full-strength this shampoo is thin enough to spread well throughout the coat and lather all the way down to the skin, which is very important for getting a long-lasting, deep-down clean when you bathe your dog. It also rinses quickly and easily.
A Note for Pet Owners:
This shampoo is absolutely safe to use full-strength. However, you'll find it's easier to lather in and rinse out when diluted.
While Tropiclean Berry Clean will get the pets shiny and smelling great, it is gentle enough to not wash off flea & tick products because it is formulated without harsh soaps and detergents. This is an important factor to consider now that the efficacy of some spot-on flea treatments are starting to fade.
It's also gentle enough to not chap my arms or hands! This means a lot to us pros, as we have our arms in this stuff for hours on end during a busy day in our shops!
The hourglass shape of the bottle and large opening make it easy to hold on to and use while your hands are wet and slippery in the tub. The packaging of this shampoo is environmentally friendly. This earns them brownie points from me! The materials are made in the USA. From the Tropiclean website:
We are proud to be an environmentally conscious company. Our bottles are made from recycled materials (PCR), post consumer resin. The sleeve labels are made from corn which makes them natural, renewable, biodegradable and 100% recyclable! ...As a US based manufacturing company, we have selected products and materials made in the USA, from our bottles to our caps.
Perk for groomers: The bottles are pretty and the benefits are clear and easy to read. This makes them perfect to retail in your salon or shop! How many times have you been asked, "What shampoo do you use to make Fifi smell so good? I'd love to buy some!" Do not miss out on this opportunity to make an extra sale and make your clients happy. Every dollar for us and every great experience (they'll tell their friends!) for the clients counts.
So what are you waiting for? Try it out and let me know what you think!

Many pet groomers purchase pet shampoo that is highly concentrated and meant to be diluted. Diluting pet shampoo actually produces desirable results! However, many groomers do not realize that by diluting...
