      When we first brought our little guy home I was using Johnson's baby shampoo, but I switched to Hylyt as per lots of recommendations from fellow lairians! It's soap-free and hypoallergenic (y)

          I'd like to know a shower gel that lasts a while on them!
          I've used the body shops almond milk one which did linger the following day, I've used LUSH It's Raining Men - which I've used for years but doesnt linger on my kitten, and I've used a Deep Sleep Shower jelly on her which wasn't effective for getting clean or scent !

          Ideally we will all find a cruelty free product that keeps our little beasts clean!

            Only one week to go. So exciting! I know a lot of members use Hylyt, D'Grease or Jonhson

              Thanks everyone :)

              I have had a look around for Hylyt and D'Grease but they're SO expensive as I guess they'd have to be imported (I live in the UK).

              I was thinking of maybe Sanex 0% shower/bath wash as it's cruelty free, fragrance free and is great for senstive skin?

              I'm in a similar boat for shampoos, you can't get hylt or the degrease shampoo in Australia that I have found and I'm sure it is so expensive. Not ideal but what works fine is the Johnsons baby, it's what my breeder has used for years and has never had an issue with it.

                I find Johnson’s baby shampoo is great and it does have a little lemon in to help to degrease ( well it smells lemonish lol )
                And ASDA ( owned by Walmart ) do their own baby shampoo that is also quite good

                  I use a regular/default/generic cat shampo and I had no problems.
                  Make sure you do not overbathe your sphynx. Most websites mention a weekly bath but it's really unnecessary and by doing so you can actually make things worse because their skin will want to develop it's own normal pH and greasiness when bathed too often.
                  I bathe mine once a month.

                  Hi there , my niece is a dog and cat groomer so Princess Cleo and Mr Bagins have their very own personal groomer the lovely Emma aka bam bam ( she was the image of bam bam from the flint stones as a baby really cute as a button but please shushhhh she will kill me ah )
                  There I go digressing again
                  My two little one get a really good bath once every three week and have gone as long as six weeks a few time if Emma’s been away or something , we normally used Johnson’s baby shampoo , but this time I have bought a degreaser from amazon to try , Mr Bagins does tend to look a little rusty when he needs his bath but Cleo doesn’t tend to look dirty ( ever the princess )
                  I’ve actually found that Cleo constantly cleans Bagins ears so his ears don’t tent to get as much in need of cleaning , but poor Cleo does get a lot of wax in her little ears.
                  Hope I’ve helped a tiny bit
                  Xxxx❤️❤️❤️
