Eczema is a very common skin condition that makes your skin dry, scaly, red and itchy. It can affect anyone from babies to adults, but it’s more common in children. Eczema can be even harder to manage in children, because they don’t always understand that scratching makes it worse. Which means that it’s really important to find the best skincare products to manage the symptoms.
Babies already have delicate skin; eczema makes it even more sensitive. They need a natural skincare product that is suitable for babies but also for oversensitive skin. And that’s where Weleda’s White Mallow range comes in.
The White Mallow range is specially formulated for hypersensitive and eczema-prone skin in babies and children. It’s all natural, it’s 95% organic, and it’s recommended by the National Eczema Foundation.
White Mallow, the main ingredient in all of Weleda’s White Mallow products, is a medicinal plant known to have anti-irritant, moisturising and soothing effects when applied on skin. All of which makes White Mallow the perfect skincare regimen for hypersensitive skin! The other natural ingredients are also designed for sensitive skin:
- Pansy extracts
- Organic cold pressed coconut oil
- Borage seed oil
- Organic safflower oil
- Organic sesame oil
- Organic beeswax
- Organic cocoa butter
Both the White Mallow Face Cream and the Body Lotion have been independently tested for skin tolerance and effectiveness. The results showed that they calm the skin, provide intensive moisture and relieve itching. The face cream also protects and strengthens skin, and the body lotion cools hot, irritated skin.

Weleda White Mallow products
I remember when I first tried this. I’d been having a really bad winter with my skin, and nothing seemed to help. My skin was so dry, it was cracked and bleeding in places. This body lotion saved my skin – within a day my skin had improved. I’ve been using it ever since.
It’s fragrance free and it’s super moisturising but it’s not at all greasy. It’s definitely not just for babies! If you’re an adult with hypersensitive skin or really dry skin, this body lotion is also perfect for you.

After I had such success with the body lotion, I tried the face cream as well. And I’ve been using it ever since. In summer, I only use this. In winter, I layer it with something else for extra moisture. I’ve got really sensitive skin, but I find that I can even use this around my eyes. It’s amazing. It’s perfect to use on babies if they have dry spots anywhere, not just their little faces.

I haven’t tried this, as my boys are well beyond nappy stage. But our six month old office baby loves this. (Okay, he’s not exactly the office baby – he actually belongs to Christine, our wonderful customer service lady.) It’s perfect for the sensitive nappy area.
