Cradle cap, the common term for infantile seborrheic dermatitis, causes scaly patches on a baby’s scalp. Though cradle cap isn’t serious, it can cause thick crusting and white or yellow scales.
Cradle cap usually doesn’t require medical treatment. It clears up on its own within a few weeks to months. In the meantime, either use Colief® Baby Scalp Oil with gentle naturally derived ingredients as shown below or wash your baby’s hair once a day with mild baby shampoo and brush the scalp lightly with a soft brush to loosen the scales. If frequent shampooing or scalp oil application doesn’t help, consult your doctor.
New Colief® Baby Scalp Oil is formulated, with naturally derived ingredients, to gently moisturise and soothe your baby’s skin and scalp.
Colief® Baby Scalp Oil contains:
Rosehip Oil – a light moisturiser containing essential fatty acids Omega 3 and Omega 6, which is thought to help hydrate to the skin.
Chamomile – renowned for its calming and healing properties, chamomile has been used as a natural anti-inflammatory since ancient times.
Vitamin E – a natural antioxidant, thought to help repair and protect the skin.
Here’s what some Mums have to say about Colief® Baby Scalp Oil:
‘I used the Colief Baby Scalp Oil with my son in the bath. I didn’t really use it on his head as it isn’t dry and he doesn’t have cradle cap, however he does have dry patches behind his knees and under his arms. I gave him a little massage with the oil in the bath, concentrating on these areas. I loved the texture and his skin now feels soft and smooth (my hands also feel lovely). I will be using it again’ – Lindsey Watson
‘I tried the Colief Baby Scalp Oil out on my daughter’s head and her cradle cap is nearly gone after a few days. She had quite a lot and now her scalp is nearly all clear. It’s definitely the best thing I have tried’ – Melissa Slade
