SILVER 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 oil and organic calendula and chamomile flower extracts as well as zinc oxide.*
*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 approximately 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.
We started using this beautiful cream just as Charlie started to get nappy rash and within a day the redness reduced and it continued to protect the area, making the healing process so much faster! I actually couldn’t believe it. With the use of calendula, zinc and all-natural ingredients, it’s my favourite nappy rash cream!
I love that Weleda have their own farms around the world and implement biodynamic practices. This resonates with me as I prefer to follow the rhythms of nature in my own life and it’s important that businesses honour the earth in this way too.
My children both had sensitive skin and red bottoms occurred fairly frequently. However, after finding this rich, healing cream, we never had ongoing issues again. Literally, the red bottom heals overnight with this magic cream. An absolute lifesaver.
I’ve used this product for both bubs: it is such a superstar product – significantly reduces redness and protects baby’s bottom for 24 hours. An excellent choice from birth.
