Cradle Cap Oil

Lala Earth

Cradle Cap Oil

The Intention

The founder of Lala Earth, Lauren, made this oil to help heal her baby's cradle cap, and it proved to be extremely effective! Most people suggest using vegetable oils like 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. Harmonizing with the squalene is a little bit of jojoba oil that was densely infused with whole plant allies of plantain, red clover, calendula, and chamomile to soothe, dry, and provide antimicrobial properties....while still being incredibly gentle and safe for baby.

1fl oz

The Ingredients

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

The Ritual

Simply massage on baby's scalp and let sit for 10-30 minutes. Then use a cradle cap brush (the Safety 1st one is an incredible option) 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.
