A 100% natural, award-winning, soothing emollient for adults, children and babies from 4 weeks. Lyonsleaf Zinc and Calendula Cream contains a potent dose of our homegrown, organic calendula with the added non-nano zinc oxide at 18%.
This product can keep all sorts of potentially difficult skin in a happy place. Because zinc is a natural astringent those with potentially oily skin can use it to keep sebum levels in perfect balance. Use more often when skin is oily and less often if the skin is dry until you find the perfect daily routine for your skin. Be sure to use sparingly and rub in well - if you look white you have used too much. We suggest you begin using it once a day after oil cleansing with a Lyonsleaf Beauty Balm and then assess if you need to use it more often or less often. Whilst zinc oxide can have a drying effect on the skin, in some cases this is part of the skin's normal recovery process.
We recommend you research online and try to talk to other people who have used zinc oxide products to improve skin. Cosmentic regulations prevent us discussing these issues on our website. Zinc and Calendula Cream also forms a breathable, protective and moisture repellent barrier. So, it is perfect for babies' bottoms, hands that are often in water or to protect fragile skin when bathing. Be warned! - it's so water repellant it won't easily wash off of clothes or cloth nappies.
Zinc and Calendula Cream is rich in ceramides and essential fatty acids which are vital for maintaining good skin barrier and healthy skin function. This unfragranced ointment is white and quite thick. It can dry the skin if used often or liberally and it will show white on the skin if applied too heavily or not rubbed in. If you prefer a lighter fragranced product try our whipped Calendula Cream and if you have very dry skin you may prefer our Calendula and Marshmallow Balm.
