West Linn woman’s dog Shampoo going to the stars- Oregonian SW Community Section

The following community news story was found in the new Saturday Southwest Community section of the Oregonian – March 27, 2010-

Kathy Steinbock, an aromatherapist who makes soap in her West Linn home, is shipping her newest formula to the dogs. The dogs of famous people, that is. dog-shampoodsc-0827jpg-9ff14f468585d434_large

Steinbock’s My Best Friend’s All Natural Dog Shampoo, which comes in a bar soap shape, will be in the HollyWOOF A-List Doggie Gift Bags that Distinctive Assets, a Los Angeles niche marketing company, will distribute to pet-loving stars in August. Celebrity recipients will include Oprah Winfrey, Ellen DeGeneres, Justin Timberlake and Cesar Millan of the National Geographic Channel show “Dog Whisperer.”

“To be able to put some of my dog shampoo into Cesar’s hand, because he has rescued so many dogs, would be a dream come true,” said Steinbock.

She began making soap about 12 years ago after being concerned with what she was putting onto her body.

“When I saw what was used to make soap, I decided to create my own,” Steinbock said. “I wanted organic soap that was toxin-free.”

With her interest in dogs — she shows her Staffordshire terrier — she decided to expand her offerings to canines. “The same should go for dogs as for humans,” Steinbock said. 

She released her dog shampoo about six months ago, selling it in local stores including The Dog Club of West Linn.

Cathy Cox, owner of The Dog Club, DogShampooDSC_0817_01said, “It is a very nice natural product. It is presented cute and has a pleasing aroma.”

And it is going to the dogs of the stars.

    Good for her! Perhaps her soap will be part of an Oscar gift basket for nominees? Now, all she needs is an appearance on Oprah! :D
