Weleda – The Family’s Favourite Brand*

Weleda – The Family’s Favourite Brand*

Weleda is the one brand that’s with me since I drastically changed my and my family’s lifestyle to a healthier one. I tried several product from the Swiss brand and I keep on repurchasing them ever since. Weleda products are not to “try”, they are all so amazing that once you used them, they will be a staple piece of your bathroom, beauty case or changing table. Below I collected my family’s favourite Weleda products, and I hope reading my review will inspire you to introduce this wonderful natural brand to your own family.


Weleda Ratanhia Toothpaste


My first encounter with this product was when I reviewed a British beauty box containing only green beauty products. Finding the right natural toothpaste was a bit of a struggle, but after long and thorough experimenting period we ended up having 2 favourites. My husband loves this  strenghtening product from Weleda, that help you avoid bleeding gums. I like it but I prefer stronger, mintier flavour so I’m using another type with aloe vera. Our son also uses a Weleda toothpaste – read all about it below.

Weleda Calendula Nappy Change Cream


I gave “the family’s favourite” title to this article , because in our family even the smallest (18 months old) one uses and loves Weleda’s products. When my son was born I was crazy about finding the purest yet most effective nappy  change cream for him, we tried a lot, but his super sensitive skin didn’t respond well to any of them, until we finally found the Calendula Nappy Change Cream. Its price much higher than the regular nappy creams, but a tube lasts for ages and it really treats baby bottoms as it should. Thanks to this wonderful product, -and the goodness of calendula extract in it,- we barely seen any redness in the past 1,5 year.

Weleda Calendula Massage Oil


I have to admit, that I’m not much into body lotions and stuff. I’ve never been the “lotion after every shower” type, yet there is a point even in my life when my skin starts screaming for help. The cooler season -thanks to central heating – always surprises me with extra dry flaky and itchy skin especially on my legs and arms. This not only feels bad but also looks disturbing. I was looking for some remedy for that, when I found the Weleda’s Calendula Massage Oil. The description said; “Carried in a silky layer of sunflower oil, and freshly scented with essential oils, Calendula Massage Oil is ideal for a massage that soothes and relaxes muscles while softening and nourishing your skin.” Thanks to the calming and anti inflammatory effect of calendula, and the great moisturizing of the oil I did not see my “rhinoceros skin” ever returning.

Weleda Calendula Shampoo & Body Wash


We started to use this product just about a month ago, when we ran out of our previously reviewed baby soap.  My son’s skin tends to develop eczema very easily, so we always have to be very careful with his personal care products. After using this soap we didn’t experience any kind of irritation; my baby’s skin was clean and soft, and the product has only a very very subtle scent (I hate strongly perfumed baby products). The fact that you can use it on skin & hair as well, is an extra bonus especially when traveling.

Weleda Children’s Tooth Gel


My little one is proud owner of 12 teeth already. It might not seem a lot at first, but it’s important that you start cleaning these little pearls, and teaching your kid the right dental routine from the appearance of the first milk teeth. The state of the milk teeth can affect the health of the permanent teeth later on. When it comes to oral care for babies it’s super important to choose a toothpaste that lacks all the possibly toxic ingredients, that regular toothpaste could contain. With little kids it often happens that they swallow the toothpaste, but with Weleda’s Children’s Tooth Gel you don’t have to worry about it. For me the flavour (very subtle minty) was an extra bonus because I think it’s bad to temp kids to brush their teeth with bubblegum flavoured, sweet toothpastes that will give them a false sense of  “it’s ok to eat it”.

Me and my family tried several other Weleda products as well and we’ve never been dissapointed by them.

Do you use and Weleda products at the moment? If not, which one would you like to try?

    I’ve never heard of this range but it sounds great. I could do with the massage oil. I have so many back and neck issues and need my husband to give it a massage!

      Thank you for your comment! If I’m getting it right you are based in the UK, so you are lucky because all the links I provided here for the products are for the uk store 😉 Send hubby a link, maybe he will surprise you for Christmas 😉 And these products are all amazing for your little ones.

  2. Ana De-Jesus says:

    I am so glad to hear that you swear by Weleda and that it has helped you over a course of time with you and your family’s needs. I had no idea that they did more than just skincare so that was interesting to find out!

    1. annaszoke says:

      They recently launched coloured lipbalms too, so I’m secretly hoping they’ll soon expand to the makeup field as well. 😉

  3. Violinkit says:

    I love Weleda products. I remember their childrens toothpaste and buying it for my kids when they were very small. I also have used their massage oil and shampoo’s. Great products.

  4. jmsterb says:

    I’ve never heard of Weleda over here in the US. It looks like a great brand. I’ll have to see if you can get some here!

    1. annaszoke says:

      They are indeed wonderful products. I believe they are available in the USA, they have an american site that allows you to check if there are any stores in your city carrying the brand or you can easily order online from them. Check out:

    I don’t think they sell this in the US. But maybe they will bring it over here one. I remember seeing this when I was living in London, nice post.

  6. Great to know that the family swears on Weleda for various needs and that it has held true to your expectations. Seems that it is a great brand keeping its promises.

  7. amiroseblog says:

    Weleda is such a lovely brand, represented by even lovelier people. I went to an event with them recently which was focus around their “skin food” which has been a firm favourite of mine for a while. I didn’t realise they did toothpaste too!

    I have actually heard of the brand Weleda. It sounds like it could be a sister brand of a company here. How long have you used it?

  16. alisonrost says:

    I’ve used Weleda products on and off over the years and they’re wonderful. In fact, my daughter swears by them for our grandson and I absolutely love their massage oils. x

    To be honest I have never known this brand existed nor even heard of someone using the brand. Weleda though seems like it could be great for my skin, so I believe I will check them out! Especially the massage oils!
