Frequently Asked Questions
Cradle cap looks like patches of greasy, scaly skin on the scalp and is a common skin condition in babies. According to the NHS, it’s harmless and should go away on its own after 6 to 12 months. Though there are things parents can do to help keep little heads nourished and happy. For instance, Kokoso can be used as a coconut oil for cradle cap if you gently massage the scalp with the oil to soften the crust. You can then brush away scales with our Natural Baby Hairbrush.
According to Healthline, scientific evidence on this topic is anecdotal. However, thousands of parents do swear by its effectiveness (read our reviews to see what they have to say). Coconut oil is rich in moisturising fatty acids and can be used to nourish baby’s scalp and skin. We make sure all of our coconut oil-based products are dermatologically tested and certified safe for use on newborns and babies with sensitive skin or skin prone to eczema.
