    So I was bored, decided to read the comments on a suggested Facebook post for Johnson soap. In between the people getting irate over their patent company apparently animal testing and raging about how unsafe the stuff is, I found this:
    IMG_3024.PNG

    According to a quick google search " In Skin Diseases of Dogs and Cats, Dr. Steven Melman states that the pH of human skin is 5.2 to 6.2, while dog and cat skin ranges from 6.2 to 7.2 with an average of 6.6" BBird's GroomBlog: The pH of Pet & Human Shampoos

    Most credible source, probably not but it looks like they are somewhat there.

    But that would make the shampoo too acidic. (The little write up shows that pet shampoo flies all over the pH range though regardless, so unless there's an actual study, no one can say for sure)

    Just thought I'd share :)

        Isn't the oil just an oil industry bi-product?

        It isn't the nicest of ingredients in the soap

        Isn't the formaldehyde a small biproduct of a preservative they used to use? Plus it is a biproduct in fruit. Not all of it is scary

          @Maddie Hard to find safe shampoo it would be great if we had a sticky on shampoos that are tolerable.

          AVEENO baby shampoo/wash at the moment

          .. always good to hear from others.

          Thanks.

          @pussiette that's why it's safest to stick to pet shampoo, though according to some stuff I read it varies tons pH wise

          @Maddie - The problem with sticking to pet shampoo is that 99% of them are designed for pets with hair.

          I never liked Johnson Baby Shampoo after my son's doctor told us when our son was a baby, that it essentially anesthetizes the eyes, and that is why the kids didn't cry when it got into their eyes.

            Skin pH shouldn't be effected by having hair or not. The hair part shouldn't affect that @pussiette. Lots of people on here use Hylyt so that's definitely an option
            A sensitive skin shampoo wouldn't be focused on hair either

                I have done extensive research on what to wash my sphynx, what they eat, what they drink and EMF also really has a big impact on them. I'm the weirdest mother but when I got them they were so sick and they were eating fancy feast and tap water. Everyone that owns a cat should watch Pet Fooled. I have brought my lil guys back from the dead. They were in a horrible environment for a breeder that just wanted to make money.
