Johnson’s Baby Oil is specially formulated for infants and contains high quality ingredients that are pure, gentle and easily absorbed. It leaves a moisturizing protective film on the skin’s surface and locks in moisture to prevent skin wrinkling and irritation; and effectively softens baby’s head scales.
