Weleda Diaper Cream Review

Calendula Diaper Care


You may have seen Weleda at some of your favorite stores like Target, Whole Foods and other natural food or WAHM-owned stores. It first caught my eye at Sprouting Up a natural baby store about 45 minutes from my house and I have wondered about it ever since. I have tried many diaper rash creams from Desitin to Bordeaux’s Butt Paste, and natural brands from Burt’s Bees to Earth Mama Angel Baby. I have found some favorites and others I do not intend to purchase again, but found that Weleda is a great choice for a cream that uses zinc oxide as an active ingredient. 
The key when deciding on a diaper cream are the ingredients. Highly marketed “superstore brands” are typically filled with ingredients I cannot pronounce and that may make it hard for baby’s bottom to breathe. Petroleum, which is found in many of these other brands, may also irritate delicate skin. There are zinc oxide-based formulas as well as oil and shea butter based ointments on the market and Weleda’s diaper care cream is a bit of a “crossover”. It uses zinc oxide as the main barrier ingredient blended with organic calendula extract to sooth redness, beeswax for moisture and breathability and sweet almond oil to name a few ingredients. 
The cream went on smoothly and seemed to effectively sooth any redness or rash and serve as a prevention. I do not use diaper creams at every diaper change and typically only use them when and if there is redness or irritation, but do like to use them overnight as a barrier. This cream did well and didn’t have as “gunky” of a feeling as some of the other creams I have tried containing zinc oxide. Because this cream contains zinc oxide, a diaper liner is a must with cloth diapers to avoid build up, but not necessary with disposables or hybrid diapers with disposable inserts.
Weleda carries many other fantastic products, particularly in their baby line that you can feel great about using, but as always check the ingredients to make sure your child does not have any allergies to the product. At $12 a box this cream has a steeper price than many you may be used to buying, but I think many of you will find that without any irritating ingredients you may not use it in the same frequency or quantity as other diaper creams. And with natural organic ingredients, doesn’t your baby deserve it?
