Gentle. The brush's gentle bristles, made of polyethylene, are safe for all skin types—even the tender skin of a newborn. With over 800 bristles on each brush, the Scalp Scrubbie allows an effective scrub without irritating the infant's scalp. Combined with either shampoo and/or oil, a gentle massage with the Scalp Scrubbie bristles can treat cradle cap.
Soft. A soft, dry, foam sponge is conveniently attached to the gentle bristles, providing an excellent tool for mild shampooing, soaking, and rinsing of the child's scalp. The lightweight sponge contours to any surface, promoting countless ways to use the Scalp Scrubbie.
Sterile. Each Scalp Scrubbie is latex-free and sterilized using the EO Sterilization process. Scalp Scrubbies are individually packaged in blister wrapping to guarantee that each sponge brush remains clean and sterile until ready for use. Remember, Scalp Scrubbies cannot be re-sterilized, so it is recommended to replace them often—and start fresh!
Cradle cap is a commonly used term to describe Infantile Seborrheic Dermatits. It is a skin condition in which an infant's scalp may develop flaky scales and is caused by clogged oil glands. While it's more common in newborns, cradle cap can found in children up to age three. It is not contagious, nor is it a result of poor hygiene. Although cradle cap is a temporary and harmless condition, it can be treated.Did you know that adults can also develop Seborrheic dermatitis?
While most often noticed with babies and called "cradle cap," Seborrheic dermatitis can also develop in adults and appears to be hereditary. It is thought to be caused by an over production of skin oil and a yeast called malessizia.
In adults, seborrheic dermatitis can affect the scalp, eyelids, eyebrows, inside and behind the ear, creases around the nose and in the skin folds in the middle of the body.
Over-the-counter medicated shampoos and/or lotions are recommended for adults, but you can also use the Scalp Scrubbie. It's not just for infants!
