When using Skin So Soft on your cat, make sure you use a product that doesn’t include a sun screen. According to Avon, Skin So Soft’s ingredients will not harm your cat if it licks its fur. However, Skin So Soft products that contain sun screen include an ingredient that is not safe for cats.


Skin So Soft will also make your pet’s coat shiner and help to relieve its dry skin.

Avon's Skin So Soft really does work as a flea repellent. The University of Florida tested the product and found that it reduced the number of fleas on animals. Avon says Skin So Soft has been tested and proven to have flea-repellent properties that last for six days after application. Not only does the woodsy fragrance of Skin So Soft keep fleas from biting your pets, but it also can help protect you. Spray on Skin So Soft before going to areas where you may encounter fleas. The product will keep fleas–and other insects–from biting you as well.
