In brief: Less irritation

The "no tears" approach is a dominant theme in baby shampoos.
A effort to use mild soaps or fragrances has a drawback. These preparations lack the chemicals needed to help remove dead skin cells that accumulate on the scalp, so cradle cap is often persists when using these products.
