95% Natural Shampoo for Cradle Cap Relief


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

“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.

Thankfully, managing the symptoms of scalp flaking and scaling associated with, say it with me now, seb-uhreeic 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.”

Pediatricians recommend a Medicated Baby Shampoo for Cradle Cap Relief

  • 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.  Each ingredient in our shampoo is chosen with great care to ensure we provide a safe shampoo for babies with cradle cap.

  • 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.

  • Most pediatricians would recommend a medicated shampoo with Pyrithione Zinc to treat seborrheic dermatitis, commonly referred to as “Cradle Cap”.

  • Happy Cappy also contains natural ingredients like Licorice Root Extract to help soothe redness behind ears, under armpits, and in neck folds.

  • Happy Cappy’s gentle, fragrance free, dermatologist tested, dye free, alcohol free, paraben free, sulfate free, BPA free formula eliminates flaking while still leaving the skin and hair soft and smooth. Happy Cappy is cruelty free and vegan.

Why do you need a medicated shampoo for babies with Cradle Cap?

While cradle cap and adult dandruff may have the same root cause, the solutions for relieving symptoms differ. Parents should avoid using an adult shampoo on a baby. Many adult washes will contain the pyrithione zinc needed to ward off the Malassezia yeast, but they also contain harsh ingredients that can further irritate your baby’s sensitive scalp or may even be considered dangerous when absorbed through the skin.

Instead, use a seborrheic dermatitis shampoo, sometimes called a cradle cap shampoo and body wash, that avoids the harsh ingredients and is intended for kids. Dr. Eddie’s Happy Cappy Medicated Shampoo and Body Wash is a 95% natural shampoo that is free of potentially irritating components found in other washes, like parabens, fragrances, alcohol, sulfates, dyes, and other synthetic ingredients.

What it does contain is active ingredient pyrithione zinc (0.95%) to manage even the toughest cases of scalp and eyebrow flaking along with licorice root extract to naturally soothe redness. Many parents notice results in as little as two washes.

Cradle cap is a very common skin condition that affects up to 42% of babies and children before the age of 6. In adults, you can think of seborrheic dermatitis as a severe case of dandruff, causing itchy, irritated, and flaking skin.

Despite its appearance, most of the time, cradle cap doesn’t generally cause your baby any distress and is not itchy or painful. Still, it is best to manage the symptoms with a medicated shampoo for baby cradle cap to avoid complications.

The most common symptoms of cradle cap include:

  • Yellow, crusty patches of skin
  • Flaking of the skin
  • Redness of the skin
  • Scaling of skin
  • Increased oil production
  • Dryness

Symptoms traditionally appear along the top of the head, reaching from the top of the eyebrows across the scalp (like a cap). It is common to also see symptoms along the back of the ears, in the neck folds, in the arm pits, and in the folds of the diaper area. If you are unsure whether or not your baby has cradle cap or another underlying condition, you should see your doctor for a diagnosis.

An effective shampoo for treating seborrheic dermatitis, or cradle cap, should contain an FDA approved active ingredient named Pyrithione zinc.  Pyrithione zinc has antifungal properties that is entirely safe to apply to your baby’s head and body. When choosing a cradle cap shampoo, it is important to pay attention to other ingredients and avoid purchasing products that may have fragrances or other harsh elements that can further irritate your baby’s sensitive scalp.  Happy Cappy avoids such harsh ingredients and provides a product that is 95% natural, hypoallergenic, dermatologist-tested, and safe for babies and children.

How has Happy Cappy Medicated Shampoo helped families?

Emma, a 2 month old, came to Dr. Eddie’s office with scaling and flaking on her scalp, forehead and eyebrows. Emma also had redness and peeling skin behind her ears, in her neck folds, and in her arm pits. Her mother wanted to know how we could fix her daughters “cradle cap.”

Before consulting Dr. Eddie, the family tried applying coconut oil to the affected areas and leaving it on overnight but that did not help much. The flaking, scaling and redness on the scalp and skin of this 2 month old is formally called seborrheic dermatitis.

Happy Cappy Medicated Shampoo is a rich lathering, non-greasy, and fragrance free medicated shampoo for children of all ages. Happy Cappy contains an FDA approved active ingredient, Pyrithione Zinc, for the relief of scalp and skin redness, flaking, scaling and itching associated with seborrheic dermatitis.

Emma, 2 months old
Jeremy, a 12 month old, with flaking and scale in his scalp and eczema (a sensitive skin condition) on his body, came to Dr. Eddie’s office with his dad looking for a solution.

The family had dabbled in olive oil applications to the scalp but were tired of the lack of improvement and the mess.

Happy Cappy’s gentle formula eliminates flaking and is perfect for sensitive skin in patients like Jeremy because it is fragrance free, dye free, alcohol free, sulfate free, and paraben free.

Happy Cappy contains the natural ingredient Licorice Root Extract which also assists in soothing redness.

Jeremy, 12 months old
Sabrina, a 4 month old, came to Dr. Eddie’s office and her mother was uncertain of what to do after she read on the internet that she could use an adult dandruff shampoo to treat the redness behind the child’s ears and the flaking and scaling on the scalp.

70% of pediatricians recommend an adult dandruff shampoo to treat seborrheic dermatitis. As a reminder, seborrheic dermatitis is commonly referred to as “cradle cap.”

Many parents are not interested in using a scented adult dandruff shampoo made for adult skin on their infant.
Many pediatricians are still unaware that a child friendly seborrheic dermatitis and dandruff shampoo now exists!

Thank you Happy Cappy!

Sabrina, 4 months old
