Take a look at a baby’s skin and what do you see? Babies have beautiful, enviable skin. It’s so new and fresh, soft, smooth and delicate. Newborn baby’s skin needn’t require the use of skin products. Just a little warm water and a soft cloth is enough to wash and clean. A dab of cream or oil can be of use if baby’s skin is dry but you’ll want to make sure it’s of the purest quality.
If you choose to use products or when your baby is a little older, Weleda have a fabulous selection of products designed just for little one’s (although adults are most welcome to use too, of course) and each item is formulated with Weleda’s own hand grown Biodynamic calendula extract.
The Calendula Soap produces a luxurious creamy lather and can be used at bath time. It contains extracts of Chamomile and Calendula and boosts a vegetable base.
The Calendula Weather Protection Cream is a multi-use product; it forms a protective moisture barrier anywhere on the skin to provide relief from the weather elements and is ideal for any dry patch. It can also be used on lips and is a favourite amongst make-up artists for a touch of instant and gentle moisture.
If you’re looking to give a gift to a new mum or just want to trial, there is also a Baby Care Starter Pack to consider. Each one includes small sizes of Calendula Shampoo & Body Wash, Calendula Oil (which is utterly divine, might I add. Skin after use is infinitely happier) and Nappy Change Cream.
For those of you wondering about Calendula’s properties, it is a gentle and soothing oil, perfect for assisting in the maintenance of irritations, dryness and inflammations.
