Lyonsleaf is a company I am more than happy to support and I’ve be trialling the new Zinc and Calendula cream. This product is intended as a nappy cream but the ingredients can be beneficial for those with sensitive skin issues. You can think of Lyonsleaf Zinc and Calendula cream as a natural alternative to Sudacrem and it can be used in similar ways. Lyonsleaf's cream is suitable for skin that needs some TLC and protecting from moisture damage.

It is suggested that Zinc Oxide helps repair skin and people report that it works well for acne, rosacea, dermatitis and rashes. Many of you know that I experience seborrhoeic dermatitis on my chest (sometimes face) so I was curious whether Lyonsleaf Zinc and Calendula cream could offer me a solution to the discomfort of itchiness. I’ve had moderate success so far in conjunction with other products which I’ve been using. The cream has a smooth texture and a little goes a long way. On application the zinc can cause a white cast to your complexion but it disappears as long as you massage well into your skin. I envisage that this may be more noticeable on darker skin tones. I'm pleased to report that when applied at bedtime by the morning I have experienced relief of symptoms. The inflamed redness associated with seborrhoeic dermatitis has calmed and itchiness has reduced. 

The Zinc and Calendula cream is also free from essential oils so no need to worry about those pesky allergens. The formulation is suitable for vegetarians but not vegans as it does contain beeswax. I have the 30ml jar which is the perfect size for pockets and handbags plus a great way to test out the product at a lower price point. You’ll need to use a little spatula to get the cream out of the jar as it can be tricky with fingers. 

I think Lyonsleaf Zinc and Calendula cream is certainly worth trying whether on a baby’s bottom or on you but what do you think?
