Weleda Calendula Babycare Top to Toe Set


Ever since I got my baby girl, Weleda baby products were on my radar, especially Calendula nappy change cream. I didn’t hear any bad review about this cream till date. So naturally I was curious. However, I was not using many products other than coconut oil on my new born; I waited for a little longer to actually try it. In response to one of my tweet, people at Weleda were kind enough to send me Weleda Calendula Top to Toe set to try.

This set contains Weleda’s nappy change cream, shampoo and body wash, body lotion and one small soft wash cloth, which came packed in a transparent bag with string closure. The packaging was excellent.


Weleda products are certified organic and mostly plant based. Calendula range has a nice delicate and milder fragrance from natural sources which is safe for newborn skin. The whole range feels very luxurious, although it is fairly affordable range. As a first time mum, I make very cautious decisions because I want to provide the best start to my daughter. Which, to some extent, makes me a paranoid parent but it is always better to expose babies to as much less nasty chemicals as possible in early days of their lives. 

Weleda Calendula nappy change cream is of course my favourite of them all. When I started using it on my baby, I found it rather ordinary. Although, I liked the combination of natural oils and zinc oxide but it didn’t wow me. I was already using coconut oil as a barrier and it works perfectly fine for her till date. So I kept the tube in changing bag because coconut oil is not travel friendly no matter whichever way you store it. However, when I decided to give a chance to another brand of wipes then our usual waterwipes, my baby got tiny red spots on her bum and skin was a little tender. And I only used those wipes twice. I decided to use Weleda nappy change cream. After first application, I was amazed to find out at next nappy change that her skin was back to normal. It not only calmed her skin but also repaired it. Therefore we have now one tube in a changing bag and one at home. I can’t risk another incident really. I also used it on other part of her body, especially neck folds, which were slightly red during the hot days and it calmed the redness immediately.



Calendula body lotion is another firm favourite from the range. It is also mildly fragranced and have chamomile extract to soothe skin. My baby girl doesn’t have particularly dry skin, but there are few spots which get slightly rough. I use lotion after every bath to keep her skin soft and it helped a lot in keeping those areas supple and moisturise. It has light, thin consistency and absorbs easily.

Calendula shampoo & body wash has plant based cleansers, made from coconut and sugar. It is also gentle on skin and scalp. We didn’t experience any dryness while suing the shampoo & body wash but we didn’t use it much on her. Now she will be six months soon (I have no idea where the time went) it will be perfect to use. According to Weleda, these plant based detergents are biodegradable and safe for marine life.

Weleda range is available at Boots.

  1. This is such a sweet little range! I actually have ridiculously sensitive skin and use a wide range of baby products anyway so I think I'll give the body lotion a look.
