I’ve always had pretty sensitive skin, so Weleda products have been on my radar ever since I tried their Arnica Muscle Soak several years ago (which feels awesome, and smells amazing too, seriously). Since then, I have enjoyed their body washes and lotions, so jumped at the chance to try out their skincare for babies.
I received the Diaper Rash Cream, Body Lotion, and Face Cream, all from the new Weleda Baby Derma White Mallow collection. These products are dermatologically-proven and have even been awarded the Seal of Acceptance by the National Eczema Association. All of the products are 100% fragrance free. This is very important, as we know that fragrances in skincare products are a leading cause of skin allergies. In addition to being fragrance free, the formulas are mostly organic (the diaper rash cream has the lowest percentage at 86%, while the body lotion and face cream boast 95% and 97% respectively) and include proven skin-soothing ingredients such as White Mallow, Pansy, Sesame seed and Coconut oil; the latter two of which provide essential fatty acids to the skin and help protect the delicate moisture barrier.
Using these on my daughter, Juniper, has been great. Over the winter, she had some dry, red, patches of skin on her cheeks, as well as her calves and upper arms, and I could tell that the body lotion and face cream were welcome and soothing to her skin. We got into a routine of applying these as part of a relaxing massage, right after her bath, before bed. Within a couple of weeks, the dry patches were significantly reduced and no longer red. I even used the face cream a few times when we were traveling, when I’d forgotten my usual moisturizer. Let me just say that I loved how luxuriously rich and soothing it was, yet it never felt greasy on my skin, like a few “protective / healing” creams for sensitive skin I’ve used in the past.
The diaper rash cream has also been wonderful; the formula is creamy and spreads easily, unlike some of the really thick, difficult to spread pastes out there, while still creating the necessary layer of protection to promote healing delicate and sensitive skin.
I would definitely recommend the Weleda Baby Derma White Mallow collection to anyone, especially to those with reactive or sensitive skin. Good stuff!
