We offer products that can help with the issues you may face while you are caring for your young family.
Cradle cap is a skin condition which affects around 10% of babies and usually appears within the first three months of the infant’s life. Scales and crusts which are yellow to red are formed on the scalp and may spread to the nape of the neck or even the face. The crusts resemble burnt milk; this is where the term milk scurf comes from. As a general rule, cradle cap is harmless. Treatment is advisable especially when the liquid underneath the scales accumulates, causing severe itching, often combined with an unpleasant smell. Treatment prevents scratching and therefore injury to the skin and resulting infection.Loyon is a new, innovative and effective OTC treatment for cradle cap and psoriasis now available in the UK. Loyon, a non-toxic, non-sticky and non-messy lotion, has achieved remarkable results in clinical trials with no more than three treatments over eight days. The unique formula loosens cradle cap and psoriasis scales, allowing them to be gently removed without bleeding and the consequent risk of infection, which is so often the case with oils and other treatments.
