Your baby’s skin is as delicate as a freshly picked flower. So it makes sense that a freshly picked flower would be the main ingredient to soothe your baby’s skin irritations.
Boiron Calendula topicals are made from Calendula officinalis, a garden marigold. With its bright yellow-orange blossoms, the garden marigold has been applied locally for centuries as a natural healing and soothing substance. Today, it is known that Calendula’s wound-healing properties are due to the presence of essential oils, saponins, flavonoids, and alkaloids. These compounds have been shown to promote healing.
This medicine cabinet staple should be stocked everywhere, including in diaper bags, first aid kits, travel toiletry bags, the kitchen, and the nursery.
Boiron Calendula topicals come in several forms—cream, gel, and ointment.
Calendula Cream’s light texture is both soothing and moisturizing. It is ideal for use on dry or chafed skin. Try Calendula Cream if your baby scratches himself with his fingernails. And for older children, Calendula Cream relieves chafing that can be caused by sports equipment.
Calendula Ointment is designed to promote healing by moisturizing the irritation. Its heavier formula adheres to skin longer to maintain contact between the affected area and the healing agent. If your little one has irritated skin on the chin from too much drooling, or perhaps rug burn from some serious crawling, try Calendula Ointment. Try it on blisters, chafing, cuts, scrapes or cracked heels, as well as chapped hands and lips, and nasal irritations from colds and runny noses.
Calendula Gel is cooling and refreshing with a non-greasy, non-sticky formula. Quickly absorbed by the skin, try it on your children’s insect bites or stings and grown-ups’ shaving nicks.
Calendula Burn is designed to promote healing by moisturizing and protecting the burn. Its formula adheres to skin longer to maintain contact between the affected area and the healing agent. Try it on minor first degree burns.
