WELEDA - white mallow nappy change cream, 50ml
White Mallow gently wraps a calming, protective layer around the skin, soothing and maintaining the skin's moisture whilst alleviating itching. In cooperation with midwives, WELEDA has developed the fragrance free WELEDA White Mallow Baby daily skincare range, specifically for baby skin that is hypersensitive or for those susceptible to eczema.
With its carefully selected formulation of beneficial ingredients, fragrance-free White Mallow Nappy Change Cream promotes the development of healthy skin in the nappy area and helps prevent soreness.
Precious organic White Mallow extract provides intensive care and soothes hyper-sensitive skin. Organic coconut oil and organic sesame oil support the skin’s natural functions. Zinc oxide provides a barrier, protecting against dampness.
As far back as ancient times, White Mallow was highly regarded as a medicinal plant. Unlike many other plants, it feels warm and soft to the touch. It radiates softness and sensitivity, which is why it is well suited to skin that is sensitive or affected by neurodermatitis. From an anthroposophical view, White Mallow has an holistic effect on the nerve-sense system of the skin (epidermis). Its anti-irritant properties help calm and protect hypersensitive skin, relieving itching and promoting healthy skin development. The polysaccharides in its roots are particularly effective and, combined with water, form an organic gel or mucus which provides moisture, alleviates irritation and envelops the skin in a soothing cocoon.
Hypersensitive skin is the result of an imbalance in healthy skin development, which may lead to irritation. While this oversensitivity is often genetic, it can also be caused by environmental factors such as extreme temperatures or environmental pollution. Children affected by this tend to be both emotionally and physically sensitive. This can mean that their skin has a tendency to overreact to common external stimuli.
The WELEDA White Mallow Baby skincare range covers the skin in a protective layer. Unlike Vaseline or paraffin oil, skin-related fats can actually stabilise the corneal layer of the skin helping it to maintain its moisture. At the same time, the skin is deeply hydrated and protected.
WELEDA have deliberately avoided the use of fragrances, as children with hypersensitive skin often have difficulty correctly coping with external stimuli such as strong fragrances.
Directions: Apply a small amount, as a barrier cream, to the nappy area after cleansing.
