I first discovered Weleda in 2009 when my son was a baby and I was reviewing baby lotions and baby washes for TIPS. Out of all the products that I tested it was the Weleda Calendula products that I continued buying as it smelt lovely and being 100% natural it was perfect for his delicate skin. My eldest son has eczema and I found it was also good for him too as it didn't irritate his skin. Unsurprisingly the Calendula Shampoo & Body Wash was awarded the Best Baby Wash by TIPS in 2009 and has continued to win awards ever since. The Calendula Baby Care Starter Kit makes a lovely gift for a new baby and includes 5 mini sizes of the fantastic Calendula range plus a packet of Calendula seeds!
Whilst the TIPS awards was my first experience of Weleda they aren't a new company, having been around since 1921. It is pleasing to read that Weleda have never used synthetic ingredients, non-natural preservatives, artificial fragrances and colourants in any of their products. Instead they offer 100% natural plant oils derived from sun ripened seeds and fruits such as Sweet Almond and Sesame,pure essential oils from Lavender, Ylang Ylang and plant extracts of Calendula and Chamomile.
Over the last few years I have used all of the different body washes with the Wild Rose Creamy Body Wash currently being my favourite.
