Should I use Head and Shoulders to treat my baby’s cradle cap?

Most pediatricians suggest an antidandruff shampoo to treat cradle cap. They do this to utilize the “active ingredient” which treats the underlying condition known as seborrheic dermatitis. Many pediatrician’s frequently suggest adult products like Head and Shoulders or Selsun Blue for cradle cap because there simply was not a product on the market that was designed for the sensitive skin of a child that also contained a similar active ingredient. This is no longer the case.

Happy Cappy has a line of products designed for delicate skin and for skin that is affected by eczema or atopic dermatitis. Happy Cappy also has a Medicated Shampoo and Body Wash that contains an active ingredient.

It is wise to avoid fragrances and harsh sulfate containing ingredients (called surfactants) in your shampoo and body wash if you have eczema-prone sensitive skin. There are sulfate-free more gentle surfactants that can be used in skin care products.

Happy Cappy has no sulfates and is a fragrance-free shampoo for sensitive skin in addition to being dye-free, alcohol free, and parabens free. Happy Cappy is a rinse-off product that is compatible with other products used for eczema.
