There's good reason to think this is a real solution to children's skin problems such as cradle cap (infantile seborrhoeic dermatitis). E.g., a clinical study published in the British Journal of Dermatology showed significant results using borage oil on young infants with "cradle cap" found applying it twice a day for two weeks cleared up the cradle cap completely for all 48 infants; the lesions recurred within a week after discontinuing it; but there were no recurrences with intermittent therapy (2-3 times/week); it was not needed after they reached 6 or 7 months old. See: Tollesson A, Frithz A. "Borage oil, an effective new treatment for infantile seborrhoeic dermatitis." Br J Dermatol. 1993 Jul;129(1):95. PMID: 8396411
There have also been clinical studies showing the efficacy of borage oil in reducing the symptoms of eczema in children. E.g. see: Kanehara S, Ohtani T, Uede K, Furukawa F. "Clinical effects of undershirts coated with borage oil on children with atopic dermatitis: a double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial." J Dermatol. 2007 Dec;34(12):811-5.
