HyLyt is a registered trademark of Bayer.
HyLyt® Shampoo uses a soap-free, coconut-scented formulation for luxurious cleansing and moisturizing of a pet’s coat and skin. The shampoo can be used to manage dry and flaky skin and is an appropriate option for use prior to topical therapies or medicated shampoos.
Emollients, moisturizers and essential fatty acids help capture moisture and seal the skin. This helps minimize water loss while nourishing the skin’s lipid layer and cleaning dirt and debris from the skin and coat. HyLyt® Shampoo follows the “COR” principles of hydration:
- Capture — humectants to help capture and retain skin moisture
- Occlude — emollients to help soften, seal and reduce water loss
- Replenish — essential fatty acids to help support and maintain a healthy skin lipid layer
HyLyt® Shampoo is a lathering shampoo and is available in a gallon size for everyday in-clinic use.
CAUTION: For topical use on animals only. Avoid contact with eyes.
WARNING: Keep out of reach of children.

A hydrating shampoo contains ingredients designed to keep water in the skin, helping to maintain a soft, smooth texture. A variety of ingredients support skin hydration, including fatty acids and oils. These shampoos typically lather well and often are formulated with a pleasant smell.
Soap-free shampoo is a term used to describe shampoos that use soaps derived from synthetic ingredients instead of from animal fat, which may strip a pet’s coat, leaving it dry and irritated. Soap-free shampoos are gentler for pets and can help avoid skin irritation or allergic reactions.
Above all, be sure your clients know not to use human shampoo on their cat or dog. Human products are formulated for use on more acidic skin (pH around 5), while dog and cat products are generally formulated for use on more pH neutral skin (pH around 7). Human products can dry out a pet’s skin and cause irritation.
