Cradle Cap

If a baby has cradle cap (aka baby dandruff), does that typically mean he/she will have dandruff throughout their life?

  • No it does not. Use 100% jojoba or coconut oil. Do NOT use baby oil (it's mineral oil (a petrochemical) and should never be used on anybody!)

  • Anon is correct- baby oil is actually horrible for your skin and has been linked to cancers in testings on mice. I would go with an all natural oil free of all parabens.
