Science behind Safe Paw

Did you know that traditional ice melts main ingredients are salt and salt blends? Magnesium chloride is harmful to humans, pets, and the environment? Sure you know that melting ice with these products is effective, but its side effects are not a healthy sustainable long term solution.

In 10 minutes, Safe Paw has destabilized your snow and ice-covered surface back into water with no long term consequences.
