We love Weleda products, so were delighted to be asked to review the Calendula Weather Protection Cream. Created to help protect little cheeks on cold or windy days, this miracle cream can also be used by the whole family on hands, chapped lips, sore noses, and more. Packaged in a handy 30ml tube, it is easily stashed in a handbag, changing bag or pocket for getting out and about.
The cream itself is a balm which goes on like a gel and is quickly absorbed into the skin, leaving a protective film on the skin's surface to ward off cold and harsh weather conditions and protect from pollution, whilst still allowing skin to breathe healthily.
The Cream contains biodynamic calendula, long renowned as a medicinal plant for its healing, immune strengthening and antiseptic properties. With aromas of lavender and rosemary pure essential oils, and a base of organic sweet almond oil, ideal for babies whose skin is five ties thinner than ours, the cream goes on easily and protects delicate skin for hours. Like all Weleda products, this product is free of synthetic fragrances, colours, preservatives and raw materials derived from mineral oils like petroleum and paraffin. And all products and ingredients come with the guarantee that they have not been tested on animals, even by Weleda's suppliers.
Sophia has been suffering a little in the recent cold weather and has ended up with a chapped nose and red, slightly sore cheeks on more than one occasion. We have tried other products but they have not offered much protection, so we have now been applying this fab cream to her weather-beaten little face (the pink-hatted one, not the other one!) with great success. It has also worked miracles on Steve's chef-worn hands, something no other product manages to touch! A great product which has earned a permanent place in our bathroom.
