Our little lady still suffers from dry patches on her legs; I think it’s maybe a mild form of eczema? We used Almond Oil as a body moisturiser when she was a baby, which worked well, however as she became a little older she wanted to help put her lotion on. As you can imagine a 3 year old and ‘oil’ doesn’t bode well so we now use cream moisturizer instead.
Weleda Baby Calendula Body Lotion is one of the best we’ve found to date. Weleda is a brand I became familiar with while living in Switzerland and I’m pleased I can buy it here in the UK too (I’ll pop the links below). I guess you’re asking yourself why do we love it so much?
Well lets start with the basics. Calendula Body Lotion contain 100% natural ingredients, 99% of those are organic. These are all carefully selected so the body lotion not only replenishes delicate baby skin, but also can be used to cleanse and nourish the skin.
I love the fact that this body lotion is very rich and creamy yet somehow it’s absorbed so quickly, with no greasy residue. This also contains two of my favourite ingredients for skin care products, Sweet Almond Oil and Beeswax, both of which work well on dry and sensitive skin.
We use this after every bath and have found this does seem to be clearing the dry areas up nicely. I’m not saying it’s a cure, after all everyone's skin is different. What I will say is I can feel her skin is improving and I’m pretty sure it’s down to the Weleda Calendula Body Lotion.
