A deep-nourishing and protective barrier cream to help prevent redness and reduce soreness.
A baby's skin is delicate, and this is particularly true around the nappy area. Nappies get wet and it is therefore not suprising that the skin around the nappy area may get sore. However it is not only wet nappies that may be the cause of this, as during the first two years of a baby's life its intestinal organism may be disturbed - this can be due to colds, teething etc. - but this will also have an effect around the nappy area. A baby's bottom can therefore become a truly "sore point".
Although cleansing a baby's bottom is something so simple and an every-day occurrence, it needs to be carried out with great care. Regular nappy changing and gentle cleansing with Calendula Oil, or if necessary with luke-warm water and Calendula Soap and finally ending up with applying Calendula Nappy Change Cream, helps towards keeping a baby's bottom clean and smooth.
As in all Weleda products, great care was taken in the selection of the ingredients of this product, which contribute to the unique quality of Weleda Baby Calendula Nappy Change Cream. Lanolin is of animal origin, obtained from the wool of a sheep through careful washing of the fleeces. Because the sebaceous content of lanolin is virtually the same in the human skin, it is extremely skin-friendly and has the highest water absorbing properties amongst all the natural fats, without influencing the skin's natural breathing. Beeswax has the same protective properties as lanolin. The skin protective properties of Weleda Baby Calendula Nappy Change Cream are rounded off with Zinc Oxide, which also has water-absorbing properties.
Directions for use: Provides reliable protection for the nappy area. For daily care apply after cleaning the skin with Calendula Oil or Calendula Lotion. Apply liberally, especially in the folds of the skin. This cream can still be applied to open / sore areas. To promote healing let the baby have an hour or so without a nappy - air helps healing. Protects from irritation & inflammation, adheres well to the skin.
Also useful in geriatric care & nursing where tendencies to skin inflammations are observed in cases of corpulency, bed confinement or incontinence.
