JOHNSON'S® Baby Shampoo

Our trusted baby oil has so many uses! It's a great moisturizer because it spreads easily and locks in up to 10 times more moisture when used on wet skin than an ordinary lotion can on dry skin. It's also great for baby massage and for softening cradle cap so it can be rinsed away.
