"Weleda Calendula Baby Bath -Those orange flowers are magical"

Weleda Baby Calendula Bath

I think I have tried most Weleda products over the years and I can honestly say they are some of the best natural beauty products around and I rate the company ethics as one of the highest too. They don't pack in fancy expensive looking packaging as they concentrate on creating the best quality product by using the best quality all natural ingredients. I am fortunate and have connection with someone at Weleda who sends me samples of their lovely products and invites me to visit Weleda events from time to time in return for sharing my experience on my blog . When my latest grandson was born my lovely contact sent me samples of Weleda baby products to use on him. This was one of the products she sent in the pack.

~*~*~*~*~*~ A BIT ABOUT WELEDA *~*~*~*~*~

Welada has been around for nearly a hundred years as it was started by Rudolph Steiner who was a man ahead of his time in alternative medicine and the idea of living in harmony with nature. He started the company in Switzerland in 1921 as a pharmaceutical laboratory, with its own medicinal plant garden.

Today Weleda is a world-leading manufacturer of holistic natural cosmetics as well as pharmaceuticals for anthroposophical therapy. The factory in Ilkeston near me specializes in the pharmaceuticals but they do have a small shop where you can buy most of the products made by Weleda in all the factories in Europe.

~*~*~*~*~*~ WELEDA ETHICS AND PACKAGING ~*~*~*~*~*~

I try to buy products that are not only natural and not tested on animals but that are also made by a company that has good ethical policies and cares bout the earth as I would like my grandchildren to live in a word that still has clean air and natural unspoilt places to visit .

Weleda are constantly trying to reduce their carbon footprint and make packaging that is not only environmentally friendly but is al light so that transporting products from place to place also uses less energy. The packaging also has to protect the contents and ensure that the product arrives in the best condition to the consumer.

Thy source the best quality natural ingredients from around the world and pay above fair trade prices to their growers.

Needless to say none of the ingredients nor any product has ever been tested on animals and many of their ingredients are organic, many grown in their own organic orchards.

~*~*~*~*~*~ ABOUT BABY WELEDA ~*~*~*~*~*~

Weleda always use 100% natural ingredients and their baby products are no exception. They use the gentlest of ingredients, no fragrance and no additives at all so they are suitable for the most delicate of baby's skins. They have two baby ranges the White Mallow one and the Calendula one and they say the White Mallow one is for the most sensitive so suitable to use from birth.

*~*~*~*~*~ THE BENEFITS OF CALENDULA ~*~*~*~*~*~

Weleda use calendula in many of their products from this baby range through to toothpaste and others. In fact calendula tinctures and oil extracts are in about 30 of Weleda's products. Calendula has been the lead ingredient in their baby and child care range for fifty years now.

Calendula is more than just an easy to grow pretty flowering plant, it is also a great medicinal plant and has been used for many centuries as such.

Calendula is used to combat inflammation and help new tissue growth. It is full of carotenoids, flavonoids and essential oils strengthen the skin against any damage from outside. So it is soothing and healing for skin that is damaged or dry or inflamed.

Calendula is perfect for the delicate skin of babies and toddlers. Young skin is more sensitive and delicate and needs extra protection and care and so the soothing extracts of calendula work to help develop the resistance and protective role of skin in the very young.

*~*~*~*~*~ THE CALENDULA BABY RANGE ~*~*~*~*~*~

There are twelve products in this range all packed in the same orange colour scheme which is very easy to pick out on the shelves.

First of all there is Calendula Body Lotion in a 200ml bottle which costs £8.95.
Calendula Cream Bath 200ml for £8.95
Calendula Baby Oil (Fragrance Free) 200ml for £9.95
Calendula Babycare Gift Set for £12.95
This product the Calendula Bath 200ml for £12.95
Calendula Body Cream 75ml for £8.95
Calendula Shampoo and Body Wash 200ml for £7.50
Calendula Weather Protection Cream 30ml for £8.95
Children’s Tooth Gel 50ml for £3.50
Calendula nappy cream 50 ml tube and costs £6.95.
Calendula Baby tummy oil 50 ml for £11.95
Calendula Top to Toe gift set for £22.95

Personally I think the prices are very reasonable considering that these are 100% natural organic products suitable for vegetarians – not vegans because of the organic beeswax and lanolin in this. If you look around at other natural products Weleda compare favourably.

You can buy these products from the Weleda advisers, from their on line shop, amazon, and a number of other on line places so they are not hard to source.


This is one of three bath products in the calendula range as you can see from above. One is the cream version but this is more like bath gel.
“Helps to calm, soothe and relax your baby after an active day
Your baby’s skin is precious – so to bathe baby after an active day choose nothing but warm water and the precious natural plant extracts in Calendula Bath”

They also say : “A relaxing bath at the end of a busy day is even more important when skin is brand new. Baby’s skin needs to be clean, but is still learning how to resist the outside world. Help develop the gentlest protection with organic calendula extract to soothe skin and organic thyme to warm and comfort. Calendula wraps a caring shield around your baby while the warm water helps encourage sleepiness and calm. A peaceful bedtime ritual for you both.”

*~*~*~*~*~ OUR EXPERIENCE ~*~*~*~*~*~

My step daughter's children have sadly inherited her eczematic skin hence we are very careful what we use in the bath, on their hair and what creams and lotions we use on their skin. Sh has gone through many bottles of this and the nappy cream in the last year or so. Luckily she has a Weleda adviser who is a friend so she can easily get her supply.

This is not a product with extra scent in it and the natural fragrance is gentle and pleasant and makes the children smell lovely and naturally clean.

We used this in their baby baths and just put a squeeze into the bath as it filled and it did give a slight froth but not a bubble bath. It must be the thyme that makes it smell nice as really calendula is not that great a scent .

Calendula has all the benefits I explained above but I also has thyme which not only smells nice but is also a natural anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory so gently healing and cleaning baby's soft young skin.

We found that both this and the cream bath were excellent at both cleaning and soothing baby before bed as part of a relaxing bedtime routine. We still use the cream bath and the combination shampoo and bath product on the children even though the youngest is now 13 months old and the next youngest is three in December.

As we use natural products on our own skin it was obvious we would choose the same for the little ones and we have found this Calendula range reliable and none of the children has suffered a negative reaction from using any of the products. Initially we did use the Mallow range when the youngest was first born but we found this range has been fine after the first three months or so.

*~*~*~*~*~ RECOMMENDED? ~*~*~*~*~*~

Yes I would certainly recommend this range. You can use the products from birth and they have been recommended by midwives for many years. Weleda say that : “Midwives agree we’ve been offering an exceptional product for nearly 30 years!”

Weleda have won many awards over the years for their products and All Weleda products carry the label “NaTrue” which guarantee the highest standards using only natural and organic ingredients, a sustainable production process with environmentally-friendly practices . “Natrue” also guarantees they use no synthetic fragrances or dyes, no silicone oils, no ingredients from petrochemicals and no irradiation of end products or herbal ingredients.

Ciao seem to think this is a lotion or shampoo so ignore some criteria as thy don't apply!

Thanks for reading
