I’m wondering which shampoo people have found to be the best? Initially I visited Whiskers Holistic Pet Care store in 2013 and was recommend a shampoo from a brand called Gold, but this was discontinued within a couple of years. I was then recommended an algae shampoo from same pet store, and used this until 2018 when we moved to LA. Since this time I’ve tried Hylyt shampoo and more recently Nature’s Specialities (coconut clean shampoo) and Renewed Pet (sensitive shampoo for hairless pets) and feel I’m yet to find the perfect shampoo... My issue with Hylyt is even though it cleans and leaves my babies soft, when they sweat they’re left a dry grubby film on their skin that they don’t tend to have with other shampoos, plus I called Bayer (the manufacturer) and although this particular product isn’t tested on animals, some of the ingredients are, and I only buy cruelty-free for ethical reasons. Nature’s Specialities shampoo over-cleaned our sphynxes a bit and I found they got grubby quicker. Renewed Pet shampoo is very softening (as is the conditioner) but the product doesn’t lather, so when you have six grubsters to clean the product not only goes down fast, but speed-washing the ones who hate bath time is that more time-consuming. The Renewed Pet owner told me to apply the product straight to the exfoliating gloves and rub together, so I’m considering buying another bottle of Renewed Pet shampoo but wanted to check if anyone had found the ideal shampoo that keeps their skin soft, prevents them from getting grubby too quick, and is time-efficient to use during bath time.

I’ve also started bathing our sphynxes once per week (was once a fortnight to month) because the dirt is getting to me so much.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

Oh! I just found these from the pet store where I acquired the first two products years ago... I’m going to try one of them!!! The soap bar doesn’t sound like a bad idea : )

Oh, oh, oh! This is the second shampoo I tried while in NY, first purchased three years ago... (not algae but “Dead Sea”) so I think I’ll go back to this brand! It has the same gentle feel as Hylyt but is CRUELTY-FREE, and no contains none of the chemicals you can’t pronounce (never a good sign!) How great!!!

I use this one too and while I could go without the scent I like that it lathers and it’s also tear-free! I’m bathing my baby more frequently (every 11 days) as opposed to 3wks to a month) just coz it’s summertime.
