Lyonsleaf is a company I am more than happy to support and I’ve be trialling their new Zinc and Calendula cream. This product is firstly 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, it can be used in similar ways.

It is suggested that Zinc Oxide works well for healing skin and people report that it helps with their 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 & Calendula cream could offer me a solution to the discomfort of itchiness. I’ve had moderate success so far in conjunction with the Baobab oil I’ve also been using. The cream requires time to absorb into my skin so I prefer to apply at bedtime when I feel my dermatitis flaring. By morning I have experienced relief of symptoms and my skin looks calmer. 

The Zinc & Calendula cream is also free from essential oils so no need to worry about those allergens. At the moment you can only buy a 30ml pot but a little goes a long way and this size is actually quite handy for handbags and travel. You’ll need to use a little beauty spatula of some sorts as it can be tricky getting fingers into the jar. Sadly, this cream isn’t suitable for Vegans as it does contain beeswax. 

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?
