Calendula cream with added zinc magic

A 100% natural, award-winning, soothing emollient suitable for use on face and body for adults, children and babies from 4 weeks.

Lyonsleaf Zinc and Calendula Cream contains a potent dose of our organic calendula along with non-nano zinc oxide at 18%. This product can keep all sorts of potentially difficult skin clear, calm and in a happy place. 


Because zinc is a natural, gentle astringent those with potentially oily skin can use it to keep sebum levels in perfect balance. Use more often when skin is oily and less often if the skin is dry until you find the perfect natural facial routine for your skin. 

Be sure to use sparingly and rub in well - if you look white, you have used too much! If the whiteness on your skin is an issue simply mix it with our powder mineral foundation to match your skin tone. You can apply the powder foundation over the top with a kabuki or powder brush, or mix the powder with Zinc and Calendula Cream in your palm to create a liquid foundation. We also sell colour correctors and a whole range of mineral make-up for a non-reactive 100% natural facial routine that will conceal, even skin tone and calm while nourishing and protecting.

We suggest you begin using it once a day after oil cleansing with a Lyonsleaf Beauty Balm and then assess if you need to use it more often or less often. Whilst zinc oxide can have a drying effect on the skin, in some cases this is part of the skin's normal recovery process. We recommend you research online and try to talk to other people who have used zinc oxide products to improve problem skin. Cosmetic regulations prevent us discussing these issues on our website.

Zinc and Calendula Cream also forms a breathable, protective and moisture repellent barrier. So, it is perfect for babies' bottoms, hands that are often in water or to protect fragile skin when bathing. Be warned! - it's so water repellant it won't easily wash off of clothes or cloth nappies. We have won many awards for this product in Nappy Cream categories.

Zinc and Calendula Cream is rich in ceramides and essential fatty acids which are vital for maintaining good skin barrier and healthy skin function.

      Love this cream for all kinds of sore skin. Really protects the skin and heals really quickly. It also goes a long way! Thank you Lyonsleaf for another great product.

      Not a fix all solution for perioral dermatitis

      Based on the fantastic reviews as a ‘cure’ for perioral dermatitis, which I have been struggling with now for over 5 years, I decided to try this product. I have been using it for 2 weeks and my skin has not improved; it has become worse. I do not believe it has become worse because of this product but I certainly wouldn’t be jumping to purchase this if you have been suffering with PD long-term such as myself. Positives of the product is that it is soothing and does ease the redness of the area, but please do not buy this thinking it is the solution that will fix your PD forever.

      Paul Ross
      Perfect solution after a long search

      The skin barrier cream has made such a huge difference. I am allergic to most brands and only found out by making everything 10 times worse. But finally I have it under control only after a few days of using this cream

      Jessica Bower

      I put this on my perioral dermatitis every night and it is a GAME CHANGER!! It calms down the redness and moisturizes the area but not TOO MUCH. I just went from buying the smaller jar to the bigger one. I love this product and will be a forever customer just from this product alone!!

      Cheryl Risk
      Perfect for my little one

      This cream is amazing. It clears up my sons eczema and nappy rash so quickly. It is gentle on the skin and I love that it has no nasty ingredients. I cannot recommend this product enough. It also lasts ages as a little goes a very long way!!

      Will my skin react to Lyonsleaf Products

      Our products are all 100% natural and free from all artificial chemicals. Because they are water free we can even avoid antimicrobial preservatives and emulsifiers. For this reason it is very unusual for anyone to react to our products at all. However some people are sensitive to essential oils, so if you are super-sensitive please choose unfragranced product options. Even less common, it is possible to be allergic to calendula and other herbs, so it is always important to do a patch test. In the unlikely event that you do have an adverse reaction, you can return your product for a full refund. We also sell samples of most products so you can try before you invest in a big pot.

      Why is the pot so small?

      Lyonsleaf products are water free and contain only the finest, plant oils, butters natural waxes and mineral ingredients. Most high Street products are up to 80% water, which means you need to apply them much more liberally and frequently. You will find you only need to use Lyonsleaf products very sparingly to achive good hydration that lasts all day. Products that are rich in soothing herbs can be used more frequently to achieve the best calming effect, but they still only need to be used sparingly. So these little pots go a long way, using less packaging and less transportation resources.

      Are Lyonsleaf products vegan?

      Much of the Lyonsleaf range is vegan, but we do use organic beeswax in some products. When it came to choosing a suitable wax, we decided it would be better for the environment to choose a farming method that promotes pollinators rather than a vegetable mono-crop that causes deforestation and loss of habitat. We only use organic beeswax as organic farming standards require farmers to have high welfare standards for Bees.
