Weleda Natural Baby Care products have been specially formulated to protect and support the development of healthy skin and are safe for even the most sensitive skin of babies and children. The products are developed with the assistance of physicians and midwives and are dermatologically tested to give gentle, natural protection right from the start.

About this product

The Weleda Calendula Baby Care range is 100% certified natural - free from synthetic preservatives, fragrances, colourants or artificial additives. Instead, they contain extracts of hand-picked organic calendula to soothe, nourish and protect delicate skin.

The active compounds of calendula combat inflammation and promote the formation of new tissue while its carotenoids, flavonoids and essential oils strengthen the skin against external influences.

Calendula is therefore particularly valued for its vibrant, restorative powers, which have a protective and defensive effect on healthy skin structures.

That's just one of the reasons these products are recommended by midwives and trusted by mums in over 50 countries around the world, with one tube of Calendula Nappy Change Cream selling every four seconds globally.


  • 100% natural calendula gently cleanses delicate skin and hair

  • Gently lifts dirt, leaving the skin soft, hair easy to comb and baby’s own scent intact

  • Sweet almond oil prevents dryness, and the soft lather doesn’t sting baby’s eyes

  • No tears, no tugs, no roughness


Real mum reviews

We asked parents to give their opinions on the Weleda Calendula Baby Shampoo and Body Wash. Find out what our testers thought here...

What did you like most about Weleda Calendula Shampoo and Body Wash?

Kelly Weightman: 'I really liked this duo product, my favourite thing is how soft and creamy this is, like a body wash should be. But the cream does lather when using as a shampoo too which you don’t always get from a cream. This product has a very faint smell of almond which is lovely and natural as opposed to other products on the market which in comparison have strong fragrant smells. You don’t need to use very much at all to wash your baby, a little goes a long way.'

What did you think of the texture, smell and quality of the body wash?

Nirrall Nerav: 'The Weleda Calendula Shampoo and Body wash leaves a very lovely moisturised feel to the skin and have a very light fragrance which is neither overpowering or irritating to the skin. My newborns skin is so soft after use. She does have quite delicate skin usually but this product is perfect as it doesn’t irritate her skin.'

Would you recommend Weleda Calendula Shampoo and Body Wash to other parents?

Nicola Gresswell: '100% I would recommend Weleda Calendula Shampoo and body wash to others as it is kind to babies skin, leaves it feeling soft, clean and moisturised and smells lovely.'

How does this product compare to others you’ve used?

Nirrall Nerav: 'Honestly, it's one of the best products we have tried so far, it is so gentle on newborn skin but also at the same time it has great cleansing properties without any added harsh chemicals or nasties. For a natural and chemical free product it does a fantastic job. I have tried other products which are natural and free from chemicals but I found they were not as good at cleansing. Not only is my daughter's skin clean and moisturised but her hair is left clean and I have noticed a great reduction of dry flaky scalp since using this wash.'

Did you like that the product is made from natural ingredients and is chemical free?

Gillian Shield: 'Yes most definitely! Massive positive! I haven't been able to use any non prescribed soaps so far and I'm amazed this hasn't irritated the eczema.'

Would you use Weleda Calendula Shampoo and Body Wash again?

Nirrall Nerav: 'This product will become a staple in my bathtime routine and I'm going to switch my older son to this product too. He is turning two in a few weeks and his hair and skin are so dry from the products we are using now, so I think this will also benefit him - I have seen a huge improvement with my daughter's dry flaky scalp and her skin is left with a beautiful light scent and a soft moisturised touch.'

How well do you feel that Weleda Calendula Shampoo and Body Wash delivered what you expected?

Kelly Weightman: 'It was better than expected to be honest, as it was so creamy and soft and felt as though it was a moisturiser as well. My baby's skin after use was so soft I actually didn’t feel the need to use any further creams on him and the fact this duo product made my baby's dry patches on his skin disappear was more than I expected. I am totally sold on this product.'
