Have you tried the Weleda Calendula baby range? Here are my thoughts on this eco-friendly baby range.
Bath-time is not a fun time in our house. Between that oh-so terrible hair wash and that nasty face wash, bath-time really is the worst part of the day for my daughter. I sincerely doubt there is any product out there that would make bath-time more harmonious. However, by choosing the right products I can at least ensure I’m not putting any harsh chemicals in her bath or in her hair. This makes bath-time a happier time for me and for my daughter’s delicate skin.
Weleda Calendula Baby Range Review
Weleda, who I’m already a fan of (see my Skin Food review), recently sent me some of their Calendula Shampoo and Body Wash from their baby range to try out. This combines soothing calendula with nourishing almond oil.
First things first, I was delighted to see that the Weleda Calendula range doesn’t contain any palm oil. This is worth about 100 gold stars in my opinion. It’s also 100% natural. It’s free of synthetic preservatives, fragrances, and colourants. What’s more, its raw materials haven’t been derived from mineral oils. It’s also packed full of organic ingredients and vegan-friendly. All good things.
I’ve been using the Weleda Calendula products now for a couple of weeks in my daughter’s bath, and they’re such a lovely bathtime treats. Yes, we still get the tears and the tantrums. However, her hair is soft and shiny, and her skin is soft, with no irritation or dryness. The scent is delicate and fresh, not harsh or overpowering; and the formulation is gentle on her eyes. These things, coupled with the fact that it’s palm oil-free, mean I can’t think of anything I’d rather use in her bath. I’ve also been known to use some of the Weleda Calendula products in the shower for me – my skin and hair are beautifully soft!
At £6.95 for 200ml, it’s not the cheapest bath-time product. However, it’s certainly not as expensive as some of the other comparable brands out there. And a little does go a long way. It’s definitely a favourite in our house!
You can pick up the Weleda Calendula range online at Weleda’s website; in selected health food stores; or in Boots or Waitrose.
