Weleda Baby Calendula Shampoo & Bodywash
Advantages: Moisturising, creamy, none drying, leaves skin and hair clean and healthy
Disadvantages: Can't think of anything bad
Since my daughter was born I have been looking for different products to use on her delicate skin instead of the usual brand names that are out there at the moment. I came across Weleda Calendula Shampoo and Bodywash in a baby magazine and read it received a gold award from Mother and Baby Magazine; it has awarded Best Skincare Range. So off I went to find out more on the range.
Weleda has been running for over 80 years, they believe in physical, mental and social wellbeing. They create products that are kind to the environment and our local communities.
Their aim is to help everyone from newborns to the elderly, whether it will be in skincare or in heath, and give them the best quality products from the best quality ingredients.
Fresh ingredients are only used in their products, plants used include; Almond, Arnica, Birch, Calendula, Citrus, Iris, Lavender, Pomegranate, Rosemary, Sea Buckthorn and Wild Rose. Because of their love for fresh ingredients Weleda is a great choice anthroposophic and homeopathic, being the first choice in hospitals, clinics, doctors, pharmacists, herbalists and other health practitioners.
They have established over 100 global fair trading partnerships. So great quality products and a brand that looks and cares for the environment, what more could you ask for?
I also find on my search Weleda has products that are suitable for vegans and vegetarians; they also tell you what are not suitable for diabetics and those on a gluten free diet. How many other brands deliver that service?
Weleda.co.uk has lots of products in their baby range ranging from skin care, bath time and health. There are also products for adults, whether you're looking for skincare, hair care, oral care and health care.
Weleda Calendula Shampoo and Body Wash caught my eye at £6.95 for a 200ml tube. The packaging for this product is very bright yellow/orange. Yellow bring at the top and gently down the bottle it fades into the orange colour with a white flip top lid that the product sits on. The tube is a flexible plastic that is easy to squeeze the product out.
Weleda say this product is suitable for vegans, gently cleanses and cares for your children's delicate skin and hair. The product is also friendly to eyes, so there will be no more tears at bath time. Calendula Shampoo and Body Wash has been formulated with the mildest, skin friendly plant based cleanser.
Because of the plant based extracts I thought it would be good for my daughter's eczema, as it is free of synthetic fragrances, colours, preservatives and raw materials from mineral oils. She gets eczema quite often, which can occur anywhere on her body. The product is very concentrated and only a small amount is needed, the product is white in colour and very creamy, yet feels light to the touch. You can smell the range of essential oils and plants used including Calendula, Sweet Almond Oil and Sesame Seed Oil. The fragrance is light and not over powering at all. With contact with water it foams beautifully on the hair and skin and rinses off just as easily. There have been a few times she has taken the bubbles off my hands and rubbed her face with it while catching her eyes with the bubbles. Although I have wiped it away straight away there we're no tears and she carried on playing as if nothing had happened.
On washing her skin the product feels very soft and creamy, you can tell it is moisturising and will be good for her skin. On her hair and skin it washes off very easily while leaving the delicate scent on her.
After half an hour in the bath her skin is left very soft and her eczema doesn't seem as red and angry, instead it is softer and ready for a moisturiser. Her wet hair is easy to brush through without any tangles, dries quickly and is beautifully soft while looking healthy and shiny once dry.
When her eczema flairs up and after a few times in the bath I can see a difference, it's not gone but it looks less angry and dry looking, please don't rely on this product though just to sort the problem out. The area still needs moisturising with eczema cream that you can get from your doctors or pharmacist.
In the past I have bought a well known baby brand and used that on my daughter, within a few baths and with her eczema under control I thought it might be a good idea to try something different. It was a wrong decision as her skin dried out and her eczema faired up, which is something I didn't expect and not something I will be repeating.
A good thing about the product and because it sits on its lid, even though I am nearly finished I am still managing to get all the product out, so no wastage. The packaging can be recycled, which keeps in with their environment issues. I have had this product I would say 9 months and I am just coming to the end, absolutely great value for money.
This really is a beautiful product and a joy to use on my daughter, defiantly a gold star from me.
Summary: Beautiful product that is a joy to use
