*****Please Note: Entirely CHEMICAL FREE shampoo (both with natural scent and without) are on on a separate post.******
If you have MCS, allergies, asthma or other respiratory difficulty, here are Entirely Fragrance Free options. I have noted those containing SLS or other chemical components.
EZall original equine formula. – Chemical & Fragrance Free. EZall is plant-based making it completely eco/horse/person-friendly! NO SLS, parabens or anything nasty. It does have a Non-ionic surfactants derived from vegetable oils; tall-oil fatty acid, organic buffer and deionized water compound. I have been using this horse shampoo for years.
Elite Equine Eco – developed specifically for people with MCS sufferers and those with allergies, asthma and other breathing problems. Vegetable based cleaning agents; no phosphates, petroleum solvents, chlorine, perfumes, dyes, or animal by-products.
Equine Magic – Chemical and Fragrance Free. Certified organic Horse Shampoo from Vermont Soap Organics. Made with organic oils and certified by VOF to meet all USDA food standards. NO artificial foaming boosters, synthetic preservatives, dyes or perfumes so no chemical worries here.
Healthy Suds Natural – by Equinature. Chemical and Fragrance Free. No oils. Honey and Aloe in a vegetable soap base high in palmitic wax. Contains over 50% moisturizer.
Orvus Paste – Fragrance Free. This is basically old-fashioned soap flakes. It is bio-degradable with no phosphates. No fragrance, however it does contain sodium laurel sulfate like ordinary soap or detergent; and lauryl alcohol. It is a favorite for cleaning horses’ white socks. Use only a tiny bit on your horse because manufacturer says it is also a laundry detergent for your horse blankets.
Hydro Surge hypoallergenic – extra mild with no fragrance. No SLS, No parabens, but it does have chemical preservatives.
My biggest complaint is against the Eqyss Shampoos. To me, they are the Bath and Body Works of the equine world. Although they do have good ingredients, they also contain added chemical Fragrance so they make my throat close.
Although marketed for Dogs, these shampoos will also work well on your cats or horses.
Solay Pet Shampoo – Fragrance and Chemical free. Hydrating and conditioning using Wheat germ, aloe vera, Himalayan salt and coconut derived surfactants. No preservatives, parabens, SLS, or waxes. A Vegan product.
Organic Pet Shampoo – Fragrance and Chemical Free. Made from organic coconut, olive and jojoba oils, organic aloe vera, and a combination of essential oils. Natural rosemary extract is the only preservative. This eco-friendly natural liquid soap product is extraordinarily mild, hypoallergenic, with no animal by-products.
So Gentle – Hypoallergenic, soap-free. Uses coconut, palm kernel and corn oils. Biodegradable, mild enough for any allergy-prone skin, yet thorough deep cleaning with no residue. My dogs are bathed in this and their coats shine with no added conditioners or deoderizers.
Earthbath – Clear advantage, hypoallergenic, and Green Tea Leaf have no fragrance. All of the Earthbath products contain NO: parabens, phosphates, pthalates, DEA, synthetic dyes or perfumes. Great stuff!
Vermont Pet Shampoo – organic coconut, olive and jojoba oils, organic aloe vera, and a combination of natural and organic essential oils. Natural rosemary extract is the only preservative. This eco-friendly natural liquid soap product is hypoallergenic, petroleum free and free of animal by-products.

Hydrosurge – used in an automatic bathing system; If hand washing, should be diluted. The Company says No parabens in any of their shampoo products, however, their ONLY SLS free is the Fragrance Free (Hypoallergenic). This is not a chemical free product since it also contains cosmetic preservatives.
Veterinary Formula – hypoallergenic shampoo: Vitamin E, lactic acid (found in sour milk products and considered an environmentally safe cleansing agent), and allantoin – a non-toxic skin soother.
