Best Baby Essentials Range Weleda

Massaging with Weleda’s Stretch Mark Body Butter is proven to both prevent the appearance of stretch marks and visibly improve the appearance of stretch marks, as well as improve skin elasticity and tone.

It’s made with ingredients of 100% natural origin including luxurious organic shea and cocoa butter together with intensively moisturising sunflower and jojoba oils, to leave skin feeling nourished, supple and soft. The rich consistency melts into skin, offering faster absorption than a pregnancy oil, making it a welcome addition to the range for busy mums with time pressures.

The subtle fragrance is a mix of natural essential oils suitable for pregnancy, including an uplifting top note of floral rose, a heart note of relaxing neroli (orange blossom) and a warming base note of myrrh, leaving a delicate scent on the skin whilst mind and body feel comforted and calm. The formulation contains plant extracts of Centella asiatica and Crocus chrysanthus, both prized for their ability to support skin elasticity and firmness, and Weleda’s extract of organic arnica flowers.

Dermatologically-tested and free from mineral oils, synthetic ingredients, artificial additives or parabens, the product was developed with midwives and is suitable for sensitive pregnancy skin, even for those prone to eczema or psoriasis. The responsibly-sourced ingredients are UEBT-certified sustainable, guaranteeing biodiversity is conserved and all partners along the supply chain are treated equitably and paid fairly.

The product is packaged in infinitely recyclable green glass made from approximately 85% recycled content, in an outer carton of FSC certified board made from at least 85% recycled fibres. The lid is made from widely recyclable PP plastic, so all packaging elements can go out with household recycling for kerbside collection. The product is certified climate neutral.
