Whether you’re battling windy weather or baby skin conditions like eczema, we’ve got two great, all-natural lotions for keeping skin supple and decidedly un-lizard-like. Both of them contain the healing properties of calendula, and both of them rock.
Zoe Organics first hopped on our radar with their phenomenal bath teas for baby–and mamas like me. When I mentioned that my son’s hands were peeling
horribly from eczema, Zoe’s founder and CEO, Heather, sent over their Extreme Cream
over right away. It was an instant hit with us both. He stopped crying,
and I found that my hands looked much younger and more supple every
time I rubbed it into his little lizard paws. (I’ve also been using it on
my new wrist tattoo, which healed beautifully with no peeling.) It’s completely unscented, and ingredients are all luxurious butters, oils and healing herbs like calendula, and all of them are certified organic.
Weleda is one of our long-time favorites–as it is with lots of moms–and I know first-hand how carefully their calendula is grown and processed. I’ve even eaten a flower at harvest time! Their new Calendula Weather Protection Cream
is pure and soothing, rich with natural oils. Like Zoe’s Exreme Cream, this is recommended for protection against cold weather and
sharp winds, along with those chappy bits babies get from drooling.
It starts out gooey but rubs in well enough, with that warm, clean, herbal
scent I associate with Weleda.
Grab the small tube and stash it anywhere from your purse to a windbreaker pocket when you’re heading out on a boat.
