“This cream has been a lifesaver in our house and I’ve been using it on the children for years. My children both have sensitive skin and so need a barrier cream fairly regularly and definitely overnight. If ever one of the children has a red bottom, one application of this cream and it’s gone by the next change! I’ve found it to be a fantastic overnight cream which will ensure no irritation.
The Weleda Calendula Nappy Change Cream is a rich cream which is still easy to wipe on and doesn’t leave marks on clothes like some other zinc creams. It has a mild, pleasant fragrance and works amazingly. This is a fantastic nappy change cream which works so well and so quickly.
*This product contains almond and sesame seed oil. If you have a baby/child with a high risk of a food allergy or eczema, I would not recommend 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.”
“The Weleda Calendula Nappy Cream is thick and luxurious. The calendula smell is beautiful and calming. It’s the perfect cream to introduce people to a low tox / natural alternative as it is similar in texture to what they may have used in the past. It goes on easily, and heals sore red bottoms very quickly. A fantastic nappy cream
*This was tested during a nappy rash peirod (very infrequent)

“Of all the nappy change creams I’ve ever used, my baby’s bum loves this the most. Upon first application, his bottom area was in a really bad way – it was red raw and blistered, and I was consumed by maximum mum guilt. An hour after application and the inflammation was gone, his skin a healthy shade of pink. I’ve continued to use it as a barrier cream ever since, and it’s keeping nappy rash at bay. My baby’s skin really does love this range – calendula is a wondrous thing!”
“If you need a heavy duty nappy balm then this is the one! Weleda’s Nappy balm provides protection from skin irritation especially formulated for use on delicate skin & ideal for use on skin that reacts to common irritants as this natural formulation is made with organic calendula that is best known for soothing irritated skin, it helps to reduce dry, red & sore skin complaints.”
“Leaves a really good barrier on skin after nappy changes, seems to soothe redness.”
