While the appearance can be shocking, it is a common ailment affecting many children. Dentinox Cradle Cap Shampoo is designed to alleviate the symptoms of Cradle Cap.

    Dentinox Cradle Cap Shampoo works by using surfactants to soften the scale-like skin. Gentle massaging while wet then helps to wash away the dead skin. Regular cleansing agents help to wash the hair and carry away the dirt and dead skin. Carefully formulated, foaming agents are minimised to help reduce stinging eyes.

    How long do I need to apply Dentinox Cradle Cap Shampoo to work before I notice a difference?

    The number of applications required will depend on the severity of the Cradle Cap. For mild cases, an improvement can be made within a few applications. For more severe cases, it may take several cycles to see a significant improvement. If you notice any signs or distress or side-effects, do not hesitate to contact your health care professional.

    Never use more than two applications (2-3ml) per day. Do not be tempted to pick scales off if they are slow to move. Simply follow the routine until the flakes naturally wash away.
