Q: Is this safe for my cat?
A: This pet sunscreen contains Titanium Dioxide, which is considered safe for use on ear tips and “non-lickable” exposed areas of cats. Cats are fastidious groomers and usually loathe anything topical on their fur or skin. Cats will try their hardest to lick it off. Even homeopathic remedies can be toxic to cats if put on areas they lick and ingest. The recommended ratio of tea tree oil to avoid toxicity in pets is 0.1-1.0%. Sol Screen Pet sunscreen is less than 0.05% tea tree oil per 4 ounce bottle. (As of April 2017 this product no longer contains tea tree oil)

A: Yes! It is safe for people too!
