A Pediatrician’s Solution to Seborrheic Dermatitis, commonly referred to as “Cradle Cap” in babies.

The only shampoo formulated to eliminate flaking, scaling, redness, and irritation of the skin* for children of all ages. Happy Cappy is the first OTC (Over The Counter) shampoo and body wash made specifically for babies and children of all ages with an FDA approved active ingredient, pyrithione zinc, which has been proven safe and effective for many decades for relief of dandruff and seborrheic dermatitis.

Many people refer to seborrheic dermatitis as cradle cap. Happy Cappy Medicated Shampoo and Body Wash is very proud to have won “Best Cradle Cap Shampoo” in Parents magazine in July 2021.

*Eliminates flaking, scaling, redness, and irritation on the scalp and skin associated with seborrheic dermatitis and dandruff.

  • “Dr. Eddie’s Happy Cappy Medicated Shampoo and Body Wash has been praised by pediatricians and families across the country as a safe baby shampoo for “Cradle Cap” that uses 95% natural ingredients and avoids skin irritating ingredients. Our Medicated shampoo is one of the first OTC (over the counter) shampoo and body washes made specifically for children of all ages to relieve the symptoms of seborrheic dermatitis in children of all ages.
  • Sebo-WHAT?? dermatitis?? You may hear your pediatrician’s office discuss Cradle Cap and it’s symptoms as “seborrheic dermatitis.” This is the medical term for this condition and Cradle Cap generally refers to the presence of flaking and scale on infants’ scalps.
  • Dr. Eddie’s Happy Cappy Medicated Shampoo & Body Wash is a pediatrician’s solution to fight flaking, itching, redness, scaling, and irritation on the scalp and skin for children of all ages. These bothersome symptoms are known as dandruff and seborrheic dermatitis. 1 in 3 children under the age of 5 are affected by this condition.
  • Many people refer to seborrheic dermatitis as “cradle cap.” Pediatricians regularly recommend adult dandruff shampoos for this condition because they contain an FDA approved active ingredient to control seborrheic dermatitis and dandruff. Until now there was no children’s seborrheic dermatitis shampoo and body wash.
  • Happy Cappy’s gentle, fragrance free, dermatologist tested, dye free, alcohol free, paraben free, sulfate free, BPA free, and gluten free formula eliminates flaking while still leaving the skin and hair soft and smooth. Happy Cappy is also both vegan-friendly and cruelty free.
  • Happy Cappy also contains natural ingredients like Licorice Root Extract to help soothe redness behind ears, under armpits, and in neck folds.
  • Thankfully, managing the symptoms of scalp flaking and scaling associated with, say it with me now, seb-uh–ree–ic dermatitis, is easy with Dr. Eddie’s Happy Cappy Medicated Shampoo and Body Wash, the only medicated shampoo formulated with natural ingredient Licorice Root Extract to help soothe redness.”
  • Some people may see results in as few as one or two washes. However, most will see significant improvement after 1 to 2 weeks of use. People with thick scale build up, should consider leaving the shampoo on for 1-2 minutes before rinsing. People in this latter category should start to see results in 2-3 weeks. Once the scaling and flaking is under control, we suggest tapering use to 2-3 times per week.
  • Eliminating flakes and scale from the scalp should be simple. With Happy Cappy Medicated Shampoo and Body Wash one product does it all. There is no need to purchase an additional cradle cap brush or cradle cap comb to acheive flake removal.

This stuff works! My baby is 3 weeks old and she got seborrheic dermatitis on her face! I was obviously saddened and tried finding something to clear her right up. I came across this and I washed her face with it daily and moisturized after. We are now 5 days in and her face is clear!!! Definitely works!

My baby suffered from horrible cradle cap, which eventually traveled to the creases in her arms and legs (Seborrheic Dermatitis). This is the only product that worked for her extremely sensitive skin after trial and error with multiple other body washes and creams that only seemed to further irritate her skin. It calmed my babies skin from head to toe, literally! We have used it consistently and there has been a dramatic change in her skin. It’s finally soft, moisturized, much less irritated and dry, and over all clear. It’s so nice to have found something that works for her sensitive skin. We also use your moisturizing cream which is so gentle and effective on her whole body. We love your products! It’s so nice to have finally found something that works. Thank you Happy Cappy!




Your Happy Cappy dandruff shampoo is the best shampoo I’ve ever used in my life. I am a 29 year old woman and for the first time in my life I had severe dandruff this summer (hormonal related). I tried a few options including the Nizoral and Tarzum but they didn’t do much for me (the tar one was sticky and smelly and didnt even provide temporary relief). I didn’t look at Head & Shoulders because it had fragrances and dyes and other ingredients I avoid in shampoos. I found your shampoo because I figured baby dandruff shampoo might be formulated better and it was recommended on a blog. Your shampoo provided immediate relief and lasted about a day and then I’d need to wash again with it to get relief (again the dandruff was insanely severe, my hair was falling out etc). Although I saw improvement quickly, after about a month things got closer to normal (no constant scratching) and now about 4 months later (still using your product) my scalp is actually better and cleaner than it has ever been in my whole life. I had been searching for a shampoo that would cleanse gently without over-stripping oils, and also one that didn’t leave a residue/film/cause scalp build up. I tried different natural brands but they were irritating (essential oils can be inflammatory and can leave a residue) and they didn’t really seem to actually clean my scalp. My hair would always feel sort of sticky out of the shower and there was always a little build up, I always had at least a little dandruff even right after a shower no matter the frequency or shampooing. I tried a lot of home remedies one year, from eggs to green clay to vinegar to jojoba oil, nothing worked and many made things worse (diluted vinegar was nice for conditioning but it BURNS if you just shaved). I didn’t know what to do, I already was using ZERO hair products other than shampoo and a little conditioner at the tips. Now with your shampoo, for the first time since I was a kid my scalp actually feels clean and my hair doesn’t feel sticky or weighed down. I always wait a few months before I recommend a product to others, and now I am recommending this shampoo to everyone I know. I never buy products from large companies (not really due to ethical reasons, I just don’t like the ingredients they use) so I’m so glad I found this!!!! Never change the formula. And I like that its unscented, so unoffensive. Nothing smells better than a clean scalp!
