Midwife Sharon Trotter, founder of the highly respected TIPS Award Scheme, enthused about the new pack:
"Weleda have recently launched a clever little starter kit containing five of their organic baby essentials. It contains travel sized samples of TIPS Award-winning Calendula Nappy Change cream, Baby Body Wash and Baby Oil. Plus a soothing Calendula Face Cream (great for this time of year) as well as the product that scored highest when put through its paces by independent TIPS Parent Testers: Calendula Baby Lotion (winner of TIPS Top Product)."
"In fact Weleda have 14 TIPS Awards including Best Brand for their Calendula Baby range. Weleda stands out as a beautifully presented range of products manufactured using only the finest ingredients. A company with excellent eco-friendly credentials, Weleda is committed to restoring health and maintaining wellbeing naturally, ethically, safely and without animal experimentation. This little selection pack would make a very special gift".
Established in 1921, Weleda is the original green beauty pioneer and has shown a complete commitment to manufacturing using only natural ingredients for over 9 decades. The range is free from mineral oils, synthetic ingredients, artificial additives, colourants, fragrances or preservatives of any kind including parabens. All five baby products in the starter kit are made from genuinely natural ingredients (NATRUE certified) including organic plant extracts and pure plant oils. They are zipped into a handy waterproof pouch (made from recyclable EVA) that is large enough to hold a spare nappy or a few wipes.
The new Baby gift set also includes a pack of organic calendula seeds, so parents can enjoy teaching their toddlers about nature. The vibrant orange flowers are ideal sown in the veg patch to attract insect life into the garden, or to create in a colourful window box, and couldn't be easier to grow.
Over the years Weleda Baby has attracted a large celebrity following including famous mums Jessica Alba, Courtney Cox, Dannii Minogue, Elizabeth Hurley, Gwyneth Paltrow, Demi Moore, Liv Tyler, Claudia Winkleman, Nerina Pallot, Jenni Falconer, Julie Delpy, Peaches Geldoff and Janey Lee Grace.
