MOTHER & CHILD
What Weleda products are recommended for expecting mothers?
Nearly all of our NATRUE certified skin care products are ideal for the pampering and nourishing care of Mothers. Weleda’s Mother Care collection - including Stretch Mark Massage Oil and Nursing Tea—is specifically formulated for mothers-to-be and mothers. Stretch Mark Massage Oil helps skin feel smoother and helps to reduce the appearance of stretch marks on the stomach, thighs, bottom and breasts. Nursing Tea, an herbal tea, is a relaxing tea that helps support the natural lactation process.
What is Weleda Nursing Tea, and when do you recommend that I use it?
Weleda Nursing Tea is a relaxing tea that helps support the natural lactation process. This effective formula is caffeine free. You can drink the Nursing Tea beginning after birth and throughout your nursing period.
What is Calendula, and why do you use it in your Baby Care products?
Calendula, also known as Marigold, is renowned for its comforting, soothing calming properties. The gentle nourishing and warming properties of this flower make it ideal for use on babies, children and all delicate and sensitive skin types.
What should I use on my baby as a body moisturiser?
Calendula Body Lotion can also be used as a convenient daily care moisturiser. It is quickly absorbed and helps keep the skin feeling soft and supple. Calendula Body Cream may also be used on very dry and chapped skin such as the hands and elbows.
Can any of your products be used on my baby’s face?
Weleda Calendula Weather Protection Cream and Weleda White Mallow Face Cream can both be used on the face as a gentle, soothing moisturiser. Apply only as much as the skin can fully absorb and stroke gently into the skin.
What skin care products are appropriate for use in the nappy area?
We recommend applying Calendula or White Mallow Nappy Change Creams for daily care of the nappy area. These gentle, soothing creams help create a hydrating barrier, while allowing the skin to breathe.
What do you recommend I use for a nurturing infant massage?
Weleda Calendula Baby Oil is the best choice for a soothing and warming massage. This gentle oil contains sweet almond oil and fine essential oils.
What should I use to wash my baby’s hair?
Weleda Calendula Shampoo & Body Wash is ideal to cleanse and nourish your baby’s or child’s fine hair and delicate scalp. Formulated with plant-based ingredients, it forms the softest lather for gentle cleansing and care.
Can adults use Weleda Baby Calendula Care products?
Our Calendula Care line was specifically formulated for the delicate skin of babies. Therefore, it is also recommended for all sensitive skin types including adults. Calendula Body Lotion and Calendula Baby Oil, for instance, are both perfect for daily nourishing care of all skin types.
