Just because a product is formulated for sensitive skin doesn’t mean the rest of us can’t enjoy it. Case in point: Weleda’s White Mallow Body Lotion.
It’s easy to apply, pleasant smelling, and filled with 95% organic ingredients. I’ve also found it improves the look of dry and aging skin.
There’s a reason Weleda’s products are so well-loved worldwide: they consistently formulate high-quality natural skincare.
Not Just for Baby
Although this lotion is part of Weleda’s baby product line, I love that it works for mom too.
Products tend to pile up on bathroom counters; why not have one single body lotion that works for the entire family?
This product has been awarded the National Eczema Seal of AcceptanceTM.

|Extremely Safe||Reasonably Safe||Proceed with Caution||Insufficient Data|
This lotion contains a combination of beneficial oils (coconut, sesame, sweet almond) which, on their own, are fabulously nourishing and moisturizing. Sesame oil, in particular, is tremendously beneficial due to its mineral-rich composition and high levels of good mono- and polyunsaturated fats. People often avoid using sesame oil on its own, as it has a distinctive smell. But the White Mallow Body Lotion has no such strong scent; it merely has the mild, fresh smell of mallow with all the benefits of sesame oil.
White mallow—a.k.a. marshmallow, a.k.a. althaea officinalis—contains mucilage polysaccharides, which heal and soothe skin. Inflamed or irritated skin stands to benefit from skincare products like this which contain white mallow.
Deep Hydrating Treatment
The White Mallow Body Lotion works particularly well as part of a deeply hydrating body treatment. Layering this lotion over an oil leaves skin insanely soft.
Here’s how to do it: after your shower, while the skin is still damp but not dripping wet, cover the body with your favorite body oil. I prefer jojoba, but sweet almond, coconut or sesame oil will do the trick. Wait a minute or two for the oil to absorb.
Lastly, seal in the oil with this body lotion.
Skin will be baby-soft to the touch.
(I recommend saving this double-layering method for right before bed, because it may get on clothes or be too rich for daytime use.)
Where to Purchase
The White Mallow Body Lotion is $17 for a 6.8oz bottle. Find it at a discount at Pharmaca.
