“Weleda’s Calendula Shampoo & Body Wash is lovely and creamy. It is subtly scented with safe organic essential oils and leaves such a beautiful smell when I kiss the children’s heads after the bath! This is not a ‘No-Tears’ formula, though we’ve never had any difficulty with it over years of use.
This product is gentle, but also properly cleanses and cuts through grease from a dinner covered child! It’s a truly beautiful non-toxic choice.
*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.”
“This is a wonderful product. Smells absolutely lovely and is perfect for bath time for baby and kids. We love using this for daily washing as it’s so gentle on the body and cleansing for the hair as well. It lathers and cleanses well, leaving the skin feeling soft and smelling relaxed ready for bed time. A fresh, happy, clean smell in an easy to use squeeze pack. I use directly on the skin or on a cloth as both work well. An all-round great wash for all ages not just bub.

“This is one of those products I wished I’d tried sooner, and I’m not sure why I haven’t. Given my baby has a dry scalp, particularly after a hair wash, and given I’ve been lathering his head in Weleda calendula cream since birth, I’m not sure why I haven’t tried their baby shampoo of the same name in the same range. Since we started using it, bub’s dry scalp has disappeared and I no longer need to moisturise it after bathing. His hair is softer and fluffier, and I love the scent. My 3 year-old also loves it, and his huge mop of hair is softer too. Brilliant product!”
“Another great product by Weleda! Similar to the Calendula cream Bath, this shampoo looks white & creamy, it cleanses the hair with ease & I didn’t need to apply conditioner afterwards. I really really love Weleda’s products, they look great & perform to the highest standards, definitely an industry leader in Natural & Organic products. Their formulations are like no other brand, very unique & purpose driven. Highly recommended for the whole family.”
“This product was lovely although did seem to dry out my kids hair a bit, would definitely need to follow up with a conditioner as it seemed to make it hard to brush on its own.”
