What can I do to help my cat transition to Skoon?

If your cat is having difficulty transitioning, we recommend introducing Skoon when there are no other changes or stressors in your cat’s life. You can try the following:

  • Place your old cat litter bin next to the new Skoon litter box.
  • Let the old box ‘age’ and do not remove the soiled litter.
  • Your cat will default to the Skoon litter box since cats prefer clean and tidy.
  • Every cat is different, just take your time and be patient.

If you’re not sure if your cat is using the box, keep in mind that Skoon absorbs liquids and odors so thoroughly on contact that you may not realize your cat IS using its box! There will be no tell-tale odors or even moisture.

What happens if Skoon is ingested?

If Skoon is accidentally swallowed, don’t worry. It should pass through just like any other solid, as Skoon is 100% non-toxic and will not swell up inside your kitty, creating severe digestion problems.

Does Skoon detect bacteria or alert cat owners of any health problems their cat may be experiencing?

No. While Skoon provides amazing absorption and odor-eliminating properties, it does not detect any type of disease, bacteria or health issues.

To avoid any bacteria growth, be sure to remove solid waste and change the litter regularly. If you suspect any additional health concerns with your cat, talk to your vet immediately.

Is Skoon flushable?

No. We don’t recommend flushing Skoon, or any used kitty litter, as this may lead to clogged toilets, plumbing issues, and further health concerns.

Does Skoon work with automatic cat litter boxes?

Not at this time, but stay tuned!

How do I use Skoon Cat Litter?

For Skoon’s disposable kitty litter box, Open the box, press and fold the caps in. Your disposable cat litter box is now ready to use, and each 4-pound box of Skoon should last about 2-3 weeks for one cat.

To use Skoon’s bagged litter, fill the litter box two inches deep with Skoon Cat Litter (about half a bag on a standard size box). Adjust if you have more than one cat by adding more Skoon into a larger litter box.

Remove and dispose of solids as needed using a non-clumping litter scoop, then stir the pebbles to maximize Skoon’s absorption power.

When you notice the Skoon pebbles begin to change to an off-white color, it is time to dispose and replace!

Is Skoon healthy and safe for my cat?

Absolutely! Skoon is certified as non-toxic, low dust and hypoallergenic, making it perfectly safe and healthy for everyone in your home. Skoon’s safety lies in two key factors: its physical structure and mineral contents. Skoon cat litter is made up of small rocks or pebbles, and because of its much larger size and weight, it represents no hazard for inhalation.

We’ve subjected Skoon to toxicity testing to ensure its safety. The official toxicity report, generated by a third-party lab, shows all Skoon’s ingredients are well known and have a history of safe use in the marketplace with no reports of adverse effects or reactions.

What is Skoon and how does it work?

Skoon is an all-natural, non-clumping, lightweight, eco-friendly cat litter solution to cat waste. Rather than using clay components like traditional cat litter, Skoon cat litter is made from highly absorbent Diatom pebbles, which replicate a microscopic, sponge-like structure that absorbs urine while trapping and eliminating odor.

We take the diatom pebbles and supercharge their absorption capabilities through our unique low heat-thermal activation process.

The result? A sponge like structure that absorbs liquids by capillary force from the inside out, trapping and destroying the bad odor causing particles from urine and rapidly drying up solids for easy removal. Urine is absorbed in seconds, so it always stays clean and dry, leaving no trace and best of all absolutely NO ODOR!

With this unique mineral, Skoon Cat litter is revolutionizing quality cat litter through an All Natural and biodegradable*, low maintenance, non clumping kitty litter solution.

*Will break down into small pieces if left uncovered in sunlight. Meets or exceeds OECD Test Guidelines for Inherent Biodegradability. Testing did not account for landfill or other disposal conditions that may inhibit biodegradability.

Skoon Science & Our Diatom Friends

Is Skoon cat litter environmentally-friendly?

Yes. Skoon is 100% organic and non-toxic, therefore qualifying it as an environmentally-friendly product.

What is the difference between Skoon Cat Litter and Diatomaceous Earth?

It all goes back to where the two originate. The only thing Skoon has in common with diatomaceous earth is that they’re both derived from diatomite. Diatomaceous earth is pounded and ground into a fine powder, and can be sold with other chemicals or minerals mixed in (depending on the product).

Skoon is taken from diatomite and chipped away into chunks and pebbles, then heated to absorption and structural perfection. And that’s it! Because it’s not ground into powder or mixed with anything else, the substantial pebbles stay in your cat’s litter box, absorb odors and moisture effectively, and doesn’t pose any threat of being inhaled (unlike diatomaceous earth products).

What are diatoms?

Diatoms are a major group of single-celled algae, found in the oceans, waterways and soils of the world, generating about 20 percent of the oxygen of the planet. Check out their full biological makeup here!

How is Skoon different from other cat litter?

Most cat litters are made from clay, clay compounds and various chemicals.

Skoon cat litter, however, is purely diatomite. We’ve broken down large diatomite boulders to pebble size and no smaller. These diatomite boulders are concentrated and compressed deposits of diatoms, fossilized algae skeletons that once produced the oxygen we breathe today.

To ensure the structure, absorption and durability of our Skoon pebbles with minimal dust, we heat-treat every pebble so you get the best kitty litter. This process increases the ionizing capacity of Skoon’s sponge-like structure, which does a few things:

  • Effectively traps odor-causing particles
  • Decreases moisture concentration
  • Maximizes absorption
