The Asylum just uses Hartz brand cat & kitten shampoo- no issues, nice smell and they don't seem to mind it at all.

We use Johnson's Lavender Bedtime Bath here. It's just a light scent so he isn't all girly-perfumey. It cleans really well and I like that I can wash all over his face and not worry about his eyes too much.

I use a Sulfate and Paraben free shampoo that you can buy at Walmart called Organix. It works really well for her, It lathers nicely on her skin and she smells and feels wonderful afterwards. I rinse with Liquified Coconut oil in her rinse water as well. She has never had a problem with it thus far.

Hi, we also used to use that, but after recently watching a documentary I discovered that the U.S. version of Johnson and Johnson has a formaldehyde releasing agent in it. I think the company has recently started to provide the U. S. with the formaldehyde free version, but I don't want to use their products anymore. We switched to an organic shampoo. Just wanted to share. Here is an article if you're curious.

We use Foster's and Smith's Oatmeal Shampoo, and the Queen and her Consort come out smelling like almonds. I read somewhere that the tearless shampoos have an ingredient that almost anethesizes the eye, so the child or pet doesn't feel the irritation, but the irritation is there nevertheless.

We use Earthbath-- our first breeder recommended it to us. :)

I also want to second what @annaleemv mentioned-- I recently learned that Johnson & Johnson's baby shampoo has cancer causing agents in it. :(

We are using the soap from the sphynx lair store. It is wonderful and has helped keep them clean and bump free

@MissCaseyMay , do you have a picture of the Zymox shampoo ( love their ear products I have for the dogs - haven't tried the shampoo yet ) as well as a pic of the oatmeal lotion from your vet ?

@MissCaseyMay , thank you for sharing the shampoo pics!
I have had great results with Zymox ear products and vetoquinol products in the past .
I will add the shampoo and vetoquinol conditioner to my list :)

Thank you for sharing - it's nice for members to share products that work for our Sphynx kids :)

I used this too! Do you feel as though your baby looks dirty the next day? I feel like Millie looks worse than before I bathed her the next day.
I do!! Sometimes it’s like he’s just a magnet and others he does great! Who knows

Okay, glad it’s not just me experiencing it! I even rinse her multiple times thinking maybe im just leaving residue on her but still nothing. Comforting to know I’m not a bad cat mom and everyone’s Sphynxies get dirty fast lol
