Frequently Asked Questions

What is cradle cap?

Cradle cap is a common skin condition that affects up to 50% of infants. It is characterized by a thick, crusty build-up of dead skin and oil on baby’s head, especially in their ‘soft spot’ and eyebrows. Cradle cap plaques can appear as yellow, brown, or white patches. Like diaper rash, most breakouts of cradle cap can be treated at home with the right care and products. You can read more about the best way to treat cradle cap in our blog.

What is cradle cap caused by?

The scaly build-up of cradle cap is not actually dry skin – it’s dead skin flakes glued together with excess skin oils or sebum from baby’s still-developing system. A regular cleansing routine including a child-friendly moisturising ointment such as Waxelene goes a long way as both a treatment for cradle cap and to help prevent cradle crap breakouts in future.

What gets rid of cradle cap fast?

The quickest and easiest way to remove the oily build-up of cradle cap is to apply a layer of neutral, mild oil such as baby oil, or an oil-based ointment such as Waxelene Multi-Purpose Ointment. Once the cleansing oils have a chance to bind to the scaly patches, it becomes easier to loosen them from baby’s head with gentle combing or wiping. You should then use a baby shampoo or mild cleanser to remove any excess oil from the area to prevent further flare-ups.

Is cradle cap a form of eczema?

No, cradle cap is not related to eczema. Cradle cap is also not contagious. 

While eczema is also a common skin irritation in babies, it should be treated differently. Visit our Complete Guide to Baby Skin Issues for further information on how to use Waxelene to treat and soothe eczema in babies.

What is a natural way to get rid of cradle cap?

Waxelene can be considered one of the most natural cradle cap ointments. Our base ingredients of beeswax, soybean oil, rosemary oil and vitamin E are all certified organic and safe to use on most skin types.

Once you’ve used Waxelene to help lift and remove scalp flakes, you can use a mild cleanser or baby shampoo on the affected areas to draw out any excess oils that may cause the cradle cap to reoccur.
