GOLD WINNER + EDITOR’S CHOICE
Safe – Formulated from excellent non-toxic, mostly organic or biodynamic (which are organic and then have to pass even stricter protocols!) ingredients. Contains organic sesame and almond oils and organic calendula flower extract.*
*This product contains almond and sesame seed oil. If you have a baby/child with a high risk of a food allergy or eczema, it is not recommended to use this product until they are eating these foods in their diet and show no allergy. Studies have shown a link between the application of a potential food allergen repeatedly onto the skin and food allergen sensitisation. This increases the potential for severe food allergic reactions when the food is actually eaten. This is especially relevant for a child with a high risk of food allergy and also those with eczema.
Responsible – Weleda makes it a priority to be in dialogue with the people who it works with and works actively with individual farming partners to address specific difficulties in country areas by funding education and facilities such as schools or raw material processing sites in small, rural areas. Through organic cultivation of nearly 248 km2 worldwide (the equivalent of 35,000 football pitches) Weleda is taking active measures to improve soil health and to conserve biodiversity.
To raise awareness for the importance of biodiversity, Weleda Australia has been running the Bee B&B Hotel program since 2016 and has gifted over 500 insect hotels and teaching curriculums to primary schools in Australia. The project allows children to learn and observe native bees and the important role they play in our ecosystem.
Weleda use 100% green electricity and approx. 50% renewable energy at production sites in Germany, Switzerland and France. By 2022 Weleda aims to increase its renewable energy consumption to 80%. Rainwater is collected and used for the irrigation of the medicinal plant gardens and biodynamic farming methods employed to increase the formation of humus, which stores carbon effectively.
I’m a huge fan of this product. It has a subtle, sweet scent, a creamy texture and is really gentle on the skin. This is my pick for my girls.
This wash was our favourite! I love the light cream-like texture, subtle and natural scent and most importantly, how gentle and nourishing it is for our baby’s skin. It works perfectly as a gentle shampoo and body wash while protecting the skin’s natural barrier and not overpowering the perfect baby scent. I have confidence in the natural ingredients and love the inclusion of Calendula which kept his skin smooth and never dry.
Creamy, gentle and subtly scented with safe organic essential oils. I love how it is mild and moisturising, however, can still cut through grease from a dinner-covered child!
I’m already a no. 1 fan of this product – it’s the only shampoo/wash that my son could use when he was an infant. Gentle, nourishing and a wonderful option for dermatitis / dry skin sufferers.
