Removing cradle cap without any harsh chemicals
How does LOYON® work?
LOYON gently lifts the scales and crusts off the skin. The innovative mechanism of action is purely physical - no chemical reaction is involved and the lotion doesn’t penetrate the skin.
It has also been proven to be very effective, having achieved remarkable results in clinical trials with only 3 treatments over eight days.
In nearly 80% of the cases, scales which had been described as severe or moderate were reduced to very mild or mild.
What does Loyon contain?
Innovative and gentle cradle cap solution
LOYON is a unique, patented combination of the dry emollient Cetiol® CC and the medical silicone oil Dimeticon.
These two substances combined give LOYON low surface tension, as well as high creep and spreading properties. This means that the liquid is very easily applied and lifts the scales off the skin gently yet effectively.
LOYON was shortlisted for the community pharmacy’s Most Valuable Products Awards 2019 and was awarded Gold in the best skincare category of the Project Baby Awards.
LOYON is a certified Class IIa medical device with purely physical method of action - this means there is no chemical reaction involved in removing the scales. It is applied externally onto dry skin and doesn’t burn, stick or smell. Because of it being so gentle and easy to apply, it is suitable to use on babies.
The traditional treatment for cradle cap includes spreading olive oil onto the baby’s scalp, and then rubbing the skin with a soft hairbrush. However, studies have proven that olive oil can cause damage to skin barrier, cause irritation and make atopic dermatitis worse. That is why olive oil is no longer recommended for cradle cap in babies.

LOYON offers a gentle solution that won’t damage your little one’s skin or cause inflammation.
