It is not recommended to use any skincare products on babies under four weeks unless there is a medical problem (because the outer layer of their skin is not yet formed). Our products are certified as cosmetic products and so are not treatments for medical problems. However, the Zinc and Calendula Cream is deemed useful for nappy rash (a medical issue) because it will hydrate soothe and repel moisture from the skin. It is therefore certified safe for babies under four weeks (we still recommend only using it if there is a problem that needs addressing).
This product contain beeswax and will not melt unless it gets very hot (45°C). If it does melt it can be reset in a refrigerator without the texture being affected. (Repeated heating and resetting will destroy beneficial compounds.)
UV light destroys beneficial compounds, so store it in a dark place, or at least out of direct sunlight.
Unopened and stored in a cool dark place these products will keep indefinitely. Once opened they should be used within 12 months. Poor storage will shorten shelf life.
Soothes, calms and repels moisture.
Lyonsleaf Zinc and Calendula Cream contains the same amount of calming Calendula as our original Calendula Cream and our Calendula and Marshmallow Balm. It also contains Zinc Oxide (found in calamine lotion), it is unfragranced and is a nut oil free formulation. Zinc oxide reduces excess sebum production and so many people with oily skin and acne find it suitable for their skin type. It is also suitable for skin prone to weepy eczema, or blistering rashes like chicken pox. It has a cooling effect so can soothe rashes that feel hot and it can be applied to minor burns including sunburn once the heat is taken out of the burn completely.
It also forms a breathable, protective and moisture repellent barrier (be warned! - it's so good it won't easily wash off of clothes or cloth nappies).
Lyonsleaf Zinc and Calendula Cream has an SPF of 10.
Made with pure plant oils, organic beeswax, mineral ingredients (non-nano zinc), home grown herbs and nothing else.
