What shampoo can I use to bath my Shar pei puppy?

I've got a 10 week old shar pei puppy. Was wondering what shampoo to use as I've heard many stories (like using Johnsons Baby Shampoo / Tea Tree) about them having skin reactions.
Please help.

The best will be two octane a good quality dog shampoo, rather than a human shampoo which can very often irritate the skin. You should be able to get a good grooming shampoo from most supermarkets.
