We're so excited to share this news with you. We've just added Weleda Calendula Nappy Change Cream to our hire shop. We use this cream at home on our nappy-wearing bub and have been so impressed by it that we wanted to share it with our customers. Weleda Calendula Nappy Change Cream won the Australian Nappy Association's "Best Skincare Product" award in 2017.
Calendula (the botanical name for Marigold) has a long history of use as a healing ingredient in skincare products. The flowers used in Weleda creams are grown at their 135 hectares of biodynamic gardens in Germany. The flowers are steeped in water/alcohol solution to produce a tincture and this tincture is used in their skincare products.
Weleda Calendula Nappy Change cream has an oil-in-water base. It's formulated from plant oils such as sweet almond & sesame seed oil plus beeswax and lanolin for consistency and skin protection. The cream also contains zinc oxide, providing its characteristic white colour and a great moisture barrier between baby and nappy.
The cream is easy to wash out of cloth nappies with no special treatment required. The secret formula is sufficient good detergent + a long warm/hot wash = beautifully clean nappies. The heat from the water will melt the oily components and the detergent will wash it away, along with any other soiling present. The personalised wash routines that we provide to each nappy hire customer will make light work of cleaning off any cream residue.
Weleda Calendula Nappy Change cream comes in a tube which is important to prevent contamination. Most nappy creams in the natural/eco sphere are unpreserved meaning they are prone to being contaminated. Most are packaged in tubs and are therefore easily contaminated by dipping and double dipping. A tube minimises this risk. The cream has a long shelf life which is great as you only need a little bit!
You can add a tube (or two!) of Weleda Calendula Nappy Change Cream to your cart at our checkout. We hope you love it as much as we do!
