What’s in it?

Organic Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is one of the best natural nutrition for hair. It helps in healthy growth of hair providing them a shiny complexion. Regular massages of the head with coconut oil ensure that your scalp is free of dandruff, lice, and lice eggs, even if your scalp is dry. It is an excellent conditioner and helps in the re-growth of damaged hair. It acts as an effective moisturizer on all types of skins including dry skin. It is an amazing skin moistuizer and is perfectly safe to use for babies and during pregnancy. Coconut oil is known as a safe solution for preventing dryness and flaking of skin. It also speeds up the healing process of bruises by helping to repair damaged tissue, it penetrates deeply and is nutrient rich, we love it!

Organic Jojoba Oil

This amazing waxy oil is chemically similar to our own moisturizing sebum; it penetrates well leaving no oily residue. It is composed of esters high in Vitamin E, and is excellent for skin disorders such as psoriasis and eczema. It is similar to natural collagen and contains myristic acid, an anti-inflammatory agent.

Natural Vitamin E Oil

We use this in a lot of our products. It helps normal red blood cells, muscles and other body tissues to grow and remain healthy. It is an anti-oxidant and reduces the cells’ and heart’s need for oxygen. It stimulates the immune system, helps block lipid peroxidation in cells and tissues, and can alleviate allergic reactions and help heal scar tissue. We also use it extensively as it acts as a natural preservative and prevents formulas from becoming rancid.

Calendula Co2 Extract

This is excellent for use in formulas for babies and children. It has very powerful skin healing properties which makes is great for cracked skin, cracked nipples, burns, eczema, inflammations, stretch marks, nappy rash, grazes and wounds. It can also help old scars fade. It contains vitamins A, B, D and E and has outstanding wound healing properties.

Organic Manuka Essential Oil

It is similar in many respects to Australian Tea Tree, but tests have shown that it is up to 20 times more potent in its antimicrobial properties. It contains leptospermone, a well-known insecticide, so is useful both as an insect repellent and as a first aid for insect bites and stings. It is highly bactericidal across a wide spectrum and possesses a very pleasant aroma

Organic Chamomile Essential Oils

There are several varieties of chamomile essential oil and their properties overlap to a large extent. We choose to use both German and Roman Chamomile oils in our products as they are also very versatile oils and their properties often overlap with those of our much loved Lavender. Chamomile essential oil has a gorgeous and distinctive apple-like scent and is also very beneficial to use for most infant upsets. It is very soothing, calming and anti-inflammatory. It is particularly effective for internal inflammatory conditions such as colic and teething, and its analgesic action is perfect for dull aches and pains. Chamomile tea is widely known for its profoundly calming effect, and is invaluable for use nervous tension and anxiety. Chamomile is extremely valuable for treating skin conditions and allergies such as eczema, psoriasis and all rashes and dry itchy skin conditions.  It is one of the most gentle of oils and is particularly suitable for babies.

How to use it

We prefer to let little newborns adjust to their surroundings for a couple of weeks first. Then if the unsightly caps appear on their scalp, bring out the cradle cap oil for fast treatment. Shake well before use. Apply liberally to baby’s scalp and gently massage in for about half an hour. Then carefully use a comb or face washer to ease off dry caps. Take your time to do this and try not to rush it. Wash off thoroughly with organic bath wash and repeat daily if necessary.

How does it smell?

We understand the scent of a product is very important, and although synthetic fragrances may smell good, they are not good for baby’s delicate skin. We like to use organic plant based fragrances in the form of essential oils safe for use on babies. This organic cradle cap oil is specifically formulated to assist in nourishing the scalp and removing caps so we did not put any thought into the scent. However most essential oils we use have a pleasant aroma so this cradle cap oil is quite attractive, especially as it contains two of our favourite scents – Manuka  and Chamomile Essential Oils.
