Newborn rashes are challenging for most parents, but for those newborns with eczema—a skin condition affects as many as 20% of babies—it’s hell. None of my babies experienced anything more serious than the occasional diaper rash, but our close friends dealt with it on a regular basis. They switched over to more natural laundry products and tried every lotion on the market—but nothing ever really worked. I wish that we’d had the new Weleda White Mallow Baby Skin Care Collection back then. Not only does it calm and heal run-of-the-mill baby rashes—it works on eczema, too.
Not only does Weleda’s White Mallow Baby Skin Care trio calms and heals run-of-the-mill baby rashes—it works on eczema, too. Want to try? Win it! If you’ve been reading Mommy Greenest for a while, you know that I’m a big fan of Weleda products. With nearly 100 years of experience formulating truly natural products, first for the European and now global markets, they’re a company that I really trust. Because every baby has a rash at some point, I think the Weleda White Mallow Baby Skin Care Collection is a nursery essential.
For starters, the entire range was awarded the National Eczema Association Seal of Acceptance and is 100% certified natural by NaTrue, a European certifying organization. (Europe is far more rigorous about their personal care ingredients: They restrict 1,300 chemical ingredients, as compared to the 11 that we restrict in America.)
The Weleda White Mallow Baby Skin Care Collection includes high levels of USDA Certified Organic ingredients—as much as 97%—and, like all Weleda products, are formulated with only the highest quality and most effective ingredients. White mallow is case in point: Studies have shown that it soothes skin irritation, stimulates cell regeneration, and contains anti-inflammatory properties. The range also calls on organic borage seed and safflower seed oils, among others, to strengthen the skin’s natural protective barrier.
To the body lotion, Weleda adds coconut oil, which moisturizes and leaves skin feeling velvety smooth. The diaper rash cream includes 10% pharmaceutical-grade zinc oxide and rubs in like a lotion—not thick and chalky like some other diaper creams. With its nourishing blend of organic sweet almond and sesame oils, the face cream is ideal for cheek rashes.
All of the Weleda White Mallow Baby Skin Care Collection products are hypoallergenic and fragrance free, but there’s a subtle scent derived from the natural ingredients that smells amazing. Which is great, because the body lotion is my new winter skin essential, and the cream virtually eliminated my cracked cuticles in 24 hours.
Why should babies get all the good stuff?
