Matt black paint care- Bathing my EP3

Hi folks, long time since posting on here but I've very recently bought a black ep3 which happens to be matt black. I've always been a gloss paint guy but this matt black is growing on me. My question is what sort of products etc can I use to maintain it, most immediately shampoo/foam etc? I appreciate I'll most likely have to order some products as matt paint still seems niche in stores such as halfords etc. But for the minute will Autoglym Bodywork Shampoo be ok to wash with (the purple one that smells of cherry)? At the moment the paint is covered in motorway junk, dirt, dust, screenwash and other intergalactic crud so I'm keen to crack on. As said, 99% of my kit is suited to gloss so any suggestions on a sealant, QD and any other products would be appreicated

The shampoo should be fine. I've been using this detailing spray on my matte black wheels and it's done a good job
