This natural cream calms and soothes and reduces swelling, whilst also repelling water and helping the skin seal in moisture. It is fragrance free and preservative free - suitable for the most sensitive skin including new born babies.
CALENDULA BENEFITS The herb Calendula has been used traditionally for hundreds, possibly thousands of years to soothe inflammation and promote healing. It is now known that it contains many beneficial compounds such as caretenoids and flavenoids. Today it is widely recognised as a non-steroid treatment for eczema, psoriasis, acne, rosacea, dermatitis, rashes, and insect bites. It is also used to help heal tattoos and skin damaged with radiation therapy. Whilst there are no cures for the chronic skin conditions mentioned, many people find using high quality Calendula products (that don't contain other irritating ingredients) can be beneficial, especially in conjuction with a holistic management programme.
ZINC OXIDE BENEFITS Zinc Oxide has also been used for thousands of years to address skin damage, soothing and healing. It's astringent properties shrink swollen tissue. At Lyonsleaf we hear many anecdotal reports, from women with perioral dermatitis, acne or rosacea, that products with zinc oxide effectively reduces swelling. Many of our customers tell us they use a Zinc cream along with our original Calendula Cream to tackle redness and swelling of angry blemishes. These reports have motivated Lyonsleaf to create this product with both active ingredients. It is also rumoured that zinc oxide gently rebalances oily skin suggesting it may be useful it useful to treat, excessive sebum production, the root cause of conditions like acne and seborrhoeic dermatitis.
BARRIER CREAM There is no doubt that Zinc Oxide is fantastic when it comes to repelling moisture. This product will protect sensitive or damaged skin when bathing, hands frequently washing up, or little bottoms that still wear a nappy (be warned! - it's so good it wont easily wash off of clothes or cloth nappies).
NATURAL MOISTURISER Lyonsleaf Zinc and Calendula Cream effectively hydrates skin by improving skin barrier function and sealing in moisture. The epidermis' ability to regulate itself is not compromised (as it is with occlusive mineral oils) and it can draw water from the dermis below and from the air around it (the reason you don't need water in your moisturiser).

It is made from 100% active, natural ingredients, bursting with a myriad of vitamins, antioxidants and beneficial compounds. It does not contain any petrochemical derived ingredients.

Reviews for Lyonsleaf Zinc and Calendula Cream 30ml
Lyonsleaf never fails to disappoint! I love this stuff. The zinc really helps with acne/spots. It applies quite thick and white so I use it at night. Will definitely continue to buy this
Improved the condition of my skin. Does not irritate the skin or clogs the pores. He treats acne scars. I am totally excited about it.
