For over fifty years, French pharmaceutical company Expanscience Laboratories has been manufacturing innovative dermo-cosmetic products to address the specific skin care needs of infants, babies, young children and mothers-to-be. The company is now expanding with a line of products developed for babies and infants with skin disorders. The Dermo-Pediatrics Line features products that deal directly with atopic dermatitis/eczema, moderate to severe diaper rash and seborrheic dermatitis (cradle cap).
Cradle cap is characterized by a crusting and scaling rash found on the scalp and face of many healthy babies. About two in three babies are commonly affected by it. The sebaceous glands in the baby’s skin are hyperactivated as a result of the transfer of hormones from mother to baby at the end of pregnancy.
Stelaker™ is the first over the counter product that effectively removes cradle cap on two levels: it acts on the symptoms as well as the causes. The cradle cap is removed quickly with alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA), and butyl avocadate, a patented ingredient, restores the skin’s balance. The proliferation of micro-organisms is limited with capryloyl glycine and glycine which also maintain a healthy scalp. Aloe vera and borage oil soothe and hydrate the scalp to relieve sensations of itching and skin discomfort.
The efficacy of this breakthrough product was acknowledged by 90% of parents who tried the product. They noticed a rapid elimination of the cradle cap, and baby was once again comfortable. Their babies’ scalps were returned to a healthy state which helped to prevent the risk of superinfection.
Stelaker™ is applied directly to the cradle cap in order to be the most effective. The practical, squeezable nozzle dispenses a light non-oily, non-sticky creamy texture exactly where it is needed. Apply once a day to the affected area by massaging in lightly and leave it in overnight. Cleanse the next day with shampoo or facial cleanser that will not harm baby’s delicate skin. The new formula will not leave an oily film on the scalp or face nor will it stain sheets or clothing.
esting was conducted under dermatological control in pediatricians’ offices. Stelaker™ is safe enough for the most delicate areas of the skin and does not sting the eyes. It is fragrance-free and paraben-free.
Stelaker™ has a suggested retail price of $12.00 and is available at select Babies ‘R Us and Bath & Body Works, Buy Buy Baby as well as select independent pharmacies and websites including www.drugstore.com and www.babycenter.com.
