Cradle Cap oil

$ 18.00

I made this oil to help heal my baby's cradle cap, and i'm happy to report it is extremely effective! Most people suggest using vegetable oils such as olive oil on baby's head, but that actually feeds the yeast that causes the condition. Squalene oil does not contain fatty acids (and thus does not feed the yeast) and it is technically a hydrocarbon.  I mixed the squalene with a little bit of jojoba oil that was densely infused with herbs that are drying in nature, and anti-microbrial (while still being incredible gentle and safe for baby).

all organic ingredients: squalene oil (derived from olives) + jojoba oil infused with plantain, red clover, calendula & chamomile

to use: Simply massage on baby's scalp and let sit for 10-30 minutes. Then use a cradle cap brush (I love the one from Safety 1st), and use the exfoliator side to massage baby's head and loosen the scales. Then use the comb edge to comb everything out and remove it from baby's head. Follow with a gentle shampoo and repeat in a few days if necessary.
