in a old thread i saw a few people saying that lush products work well with their sphynx. i was wondering what recommendation you would have for what products i can and should not use on them. this is day 4 having my dobby. i have yet to give him his first bath next week his breeder was using dawn soap and bathed him saturday. Looking at his skin today,i notice that there are dry like flakes on his tail i wonder if his skin is dry? i could take a picture if you all would like to see. should i wipe it with a hypoallergenic wipe since it seems dirty in that area as well? or should i wait till first bath time?

A few flakes on their tails are not uncommon. You need to assume that anything you put on a cat can and will be ingested, as they lick themselves.

Organic and vegan are not the labels I would be concerned with. Aloe vera is technically vegan and is dangerous for cats. So is garlic. Not that there would be garlic in the soap, but you get the point.

Put a teensy dab of coconut oil on the tail if you feel it is dry. Then dab it off with a tissue. Bear in mind that any oils/ lotions you put on a sphynx will attract more dirt, so the tail may look very brown in a few days.

Don't think I would ever use lush on my cats. Ingredients are natural but there are a lot of them, and the lush products have a lot of perfume and colorings in them. The bath bombs often contain pieces of flowers, sparkles, and other things that could be ingested during a bath.

Personally I would stick to things which are hypoallergenic and targeted at the most sensitive skin.

I use regular HyLyt shampoo, it's wonderful and great for any animal.
Vet recommended, that's why I started using it. I'm glad I did.
They also have a moisturizing shampoo and other products. The moisturizing shampoo should be great.
Here is a link.
