What are the inactive or inert ingredients in this product?

Are your inert ingredients safe for skin contact on humans and dogs? Can I add the Riptide to shampoo to wash the dogs? Would there be any side effects from the pyrethrin or its inert ingredients?


The inert ingredient part of a product is a trade secret and not disclosed to anybody. Riptide is not labeled for use on dogs or humans and should not be utilized for this type of treatment. We do not carry any products that can be used on humans. We do carry Tick Block which is labeled for use on clothing (cannot be used directly on skin). We also carry Permethrin SFR which is labeled for use on dogs. Please take a few moments to read the product labels that are available at the links provided in this answer (product label links are under the pictures of the products on each product page).
