Treating Cradle Cap

Cradle cap is a form of seborrhea Dermatitis (sebum causing inflammation). Found mainly on the scalp and face of babies and young children. It appears as thick, oily, yellowish or brownish patches and the skin itself can appear red, flaky and irritated.
Cradle cap is simply a build up of sweat and oil produced by overactive glands. Sometimes an overgrowth of yeast may contribute to the condition. The good news is it is treatable.

We recommend Multi Healing Balm with Manuka and Kanuka oils which balance out sebum (oil) production and gently lift the dead skin cells from the scalp.

Treatment of Cradle Cap
• Brush the scalp with a soft bristle brush to loosen the scales.
• Massage Multi Healing Balm into scalp - it will literally lift the cradle cap without causing damage to the skin beneath.
• Leave the Multi Healing balm on over night.
• Shampoo hair and scalp as per usual the following day.

"I have battled cradle cap with three children and am so happy I have finally found something that works. Multi Healing Balm is awesome stuff! To think I wasted so much money on expensive products and time on old wives tales which did not work".
