Get Gorgeous Guinea Pig Skin Care

Gorgeous Guineas is currently improving their line of products through a fresh facelift to their branding.

In October of 2002, Chrissie Slade and Karen LeCras got together through the adoption of a guinea pig named Florence. Karen, who ran the Reading Guinea Pig Rescue serving Reading and Oxon, was looking to find an experienced home for Flo. Chrissie was new to the concept of guinea pig adoption. Through Flo’s adoption, the two became friends and shared their love of cavies. A short time later, a large group of badly fungal guinea pigs found their way to the Reading Guinea Pig Rescue and needed special care. It was out of this experience that Gorgeous Guineas skin care products were born and launched in 2003.

Guinea Pig skin care solutions have been neither here nor there for quite some time. A simple Google search will hit upon a variety of bathing solutions for your cavies, most of which use store bought soaps or recommend household products that are not intended for delicate guinea pig skin. Too often, they involve artificial colors and scents that can complicate an already delicate skin issue or use too harsh of a cleanser which can rob the skin of its natural oils. Gorgeous Guineas makes their tried and tested UK based product lines available to many parts of the world where access to quality guinea pig health care items is non-existent.

Don’t let a sticky grease gland get between you and your boar during snuggle time. Don’t leave your sweet sow vulnerable to painful mats because of her long lovely locks. Those behind Gorgeous Guineas make it their goal to serve your guinea pigs in much the same way that a personal spa would take care of you. They use their years of experience in cavy care to help you identify and understand skin care problems and provide product recommendations to remedy the issues at hand. This is particularly useful for those of us who might have a small herd and skin care issues can easily spread due to illness and stress from one piggy to the next. Gorgeous Guineas don’t aim to take the place of veterinary care, but to assist you with the types of products available for a variety of issues. As many cavy owners know, prevention is key for the long life of your guinea pig. Quality skin care, especially as your guinea pig ages, is a key part of their comfort and overall health.

Gorgeous GuineasAlong with problem solving shampoos, you can also find lotions, creams, and gels at the Gorgeous Guineas online store. There’s even a line of unique products for the special needs of pregnant sows. If you’re unsure if Gorgeous Guineas is right for you or you want to try out some of their items for sale, trial size bottles of their most popular products are available. You can also get the latest news and on the entire Gorgeous Guineas line of products through their Facebook page and Twitter updates.

Gorgeous Guineas is currently improving their line of products through a fresh facelift to their branding. New package designs, business supplies, website, and a blog will all be a part of these new horizons. Look for the cavy in lovely lavender in the future to lead you to these simple skin care solutions for your guinea pigs.

    I only use Gorgeous Guineas shampoos on my guinea pigs and I am very happy with this brand. I have shown the products to my vet who was very happy to find good products catering to the special needs of piggies.

    is gorgeous Guineas better then store bought guinea pig shampoos?

    • Based on the experiences of many guinea pig owners Gorgeous Guineas is the best shampoo for pigs. I have two pigs of my own that need regular baths due to medical problems and all the products have been great! Before I found Gorgeous Guineas I used Bunny Bath, which is the only commercially available shampoo I can think of that’s gentle enough for pigs. Even baby or kitten shampoos can be irritating to guinea pig skin. One of the advantages of Gorgeous Guineas is the variety of different products available, there are more options than shampoo for different needs.

    I’ve tried both shop-bought and Gorgeous Guineas shampoos and GG wins paws down! They have a shampoo to match every pig and I’ve always been satisfied with the results. Their Lice and Easy shampoo did a great job of clearing a lice infestation from some pigs in quarantine and the Easi-Rinse has made bathtime a much better experience by being so quick and easy to wash out. The shampoos always leave my pigs with lovely soft and shiny fur and they smell lovely too, without being harsh on the piggies’ skin.

    I’ve also emailed Chrissie a few times with questions about skin conditions etc. and she has always given me really helpful advice. So thanks for giving me a better option for my pigs’ skin care without being too hard on my wallet 🙂
