Approximately one in five children in the UK developing eczema during childhood and eight out of 10 of these cases developing before the age of five, hyper-sensitive skin and allergies are an increasing worry for many parents.
How to soothe, calm and treat their child’s skin gently and naturally can be a common concern for many and to see your child uncomfortable can be tough for anyone. Thankfully around half of children with eczema will grow out of it by the time they reach 11 and in the meantime, Weleda is here to help.
Awarded the National Eczema Association Seal of AcceptanceTM the Weleda Baby Derma White Mallow range is dermatologically proven to soothe sensitive atopic skin, whilst being 100% certified natural and fragrance free
The Power of the Plant
Harnessing the power of organic White Mallow, Wild Pansy and nourishing plant oils including coconut, sesame and sweet almond, the Weleda White Mallow range has been developed alongside midwives and tested by certified independent institutes to ensure that the products are as gentle and nurturing for your little one’s skin as possible. Formulated to strengthen the skin’s natural barrier and provide hydration to irritated skin, the Weleda White Mallow range also targets that uncomfortable itching that eczema can cause.
White Mallow Body Lotion – £9.95 for 200ml
For any child with eczema, applying a moisturiser daily and providing the skin with hydration is essential for maintaining the optimum condition of their skin.
95% organic, the Weleda White Mallow Body Lotion is a gentle and lightweight lotion which helps to cool and soothe, relieving itchiness and discomfort. Providing skin with a barrier to protect against everyday irritants the White Mallow Body Lotion is ideal for gently looking after sensitive and delicate skin.
It is suitable for use from birth, however the Weleda White Mallow range is not just for use on little ones, this kind and nurturing lotion is ideal for all the family, the perfect bathroom essential for sensitive skin.
White Mallow Nappy Change Cream – £7.95 for 50ml
For particularly sensitive skin, frequent nappy changes and cleaning can often be a challenge. That’s why it is so important to use a cream that is gentle and kind to skin. 88% organic, the rich Weleda White Mallow Nappy Change Cream helps to soothe irritated skin and promotes the development of healthy skin in the nappy area.
As many parents will know, dampness can lead to irritation and soreness, the White Mallow Nappy Change Cream contains helpful Zinc Oxide which protects against moisture, to comfort skin.
In my opinion is also good for adults for chafing usually contracted in the inner thighs and inner glutes and armpits.
