Calendula Shampoo and Body Wash
gently cleans and cares for
delicate hair and skin
Calendula Shampoo and Body Wash is made with golden calendula petals,
grown organically to ensure the very best quality and freedom
from contamination by chemical fertilizers and sprays.
Calendula is renowned for soothing damaged or irritated skin.
A natural antiseptic, calendula also contributes gentle
antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties - the perfect
ingredient for a baby body wash.
healing properties of calendula are harnessed through an oil
extraction with sweet almond oil which is particularly
soothing and gentle, and especially suited to the care of
sensitive skin. The high proportion of unsaturated fatty acids
in almond oil protects the skin from drying out by improving
the skin's barrier function. In addition, organic sesame oil
helps protect against moisture loss. Sesame also contains
precious nutrients, anti-oxidants, free-radical scavengers,
and tocopherols (vitamin E) for nourishing skincare.

enough to preserve the product naturally without stimulating
the skin. There's a fresh-lavendery top note, an underlying
fruitiness, and a floral base note that leaves little ones
delicately fragrant without overpowering that adorable baby
experts and midwives recommend that no cleansing products are
used in the first few months and that young babies are bathed
in plain water. After this early stage, the body wash can be
used for partial cleansing such as the nappy area. Use on a
moistened cloth - as an eco-friendly and skin-friendly
alternative to baby wipes - for topping and tailing, to deal
with particularly grubby areas when necessary.

every day, to protect the delicate balance of sebum production
in the scalp. Care must also be taken to rinse the shampoo out
thoroughly in order to look after the scalp.

destroy the growing protective layer and the skin dries out.
This is particularly the case with atopic dermatitis or acute
nappy rash, where the structure of the stratum corneum is
disturbed. Skin care products containing oils help preserve
moisture and improve the impaired barrier function of the
stratum corneum. The scalp is also very sensitive in the first
