Car shampoo is specially formulated for use against dirt on vehicle paintwork. Used in conjunction with a wash mitt, car shampoos are the safest way to ensure a scratch-free wash. We recommended you wash your car with proper car shampoo, a soft wash mitt, and a two (or three) bucket method.

Vehicle shampoo is mostly made up of surfactants (Surface Active Agents) which are chains of carefully designed two-part molecules. One end of the surfactants is hydrophilic (water-loving) and the other end is dirt-loving. When an automotive shampoo is applied to your vehicle, these surfactants seek out the dirt and surround it so that it is able to be lifted from the paintwork surface.

Some car shampoos can be infused with ceramic coatings in order to provide further protection to your vehicle. The general makeup of the formula combines effective cleaning agents and ceramic polymers that bond with the surface of the vehicle. Ceramic car shampoos provide a protective hydrophobic barrier against the elements and can give a dramatic wet gloss to paintwork. This improves depth and colour brightness as well as giving a slickness to the paintwork surface.

Chemical Guys Hydrosuds Ceramic Car Wash Soap is infused with nano SiO2 that ensures your paintwork receives ceramic protection from suds that leave an incredible gloss. Offering a good level of protection, Hydrosuds leaves a silica-rich film behind that helps repel water, dirt, and other pollutants, keeping your car cleaner longer. Use Hydrosuds on a non-coated car to add a hydrophobic layer, or revitalise already ceramic coated cars with a simple wash and rinse.

Angelwax Enigma is a ceramic infused shampoo designed using the latest ceramic technology. When used regularly as part of your detailing routine, the ceramic molecules in Enigma Shampoo bond to the vehicle and a protective coating is formed over the paint's surface. Aside from the excellent cleaning power, the unique formulation of Enigma Shampoo also adds an additional layer of ceramic protection on top of your existing wax or ceramic coating. This works to further enhance the appearance and protection of your vehicle and increase the life of the coating.
