Our award winning original Calendula Cream

A 100% natural, soothing emollient for adults and children over 3 years (see alternative calendula creams suitable for infants and very sensitive skin here).

Made with pure plant oils, home-grown herbs and nothing else. Those in the know will be impressed with our full list of natural ingredients

This product is fragranced with essential oils. It is also whipped to make it lighter so it is very much like a beauty product. Many customers find this is a great product for facial use, although it can be used top to toe. The potent dose of calendula makes this perfect as a daily moisturiser for any skin that needs a little extra help to stay in tip top condition. Use after oil cleansing with Lyonsleaf Beauty Balm

For more demanding skin, we recommend either our Zinc and Calendula Cream which is cooling and can be used to keep sebum levels in perfect balance. Or for very dry or rough skin we recommend our Calendula and Marshmallow Balm which is super hydrating and softening. Both these alternative products are unfragranced and suitable for infants or those sensitive to essential oils.

Directions & Guidance

Apply to skin as required.

Use clean fingers or a spatula.

Made from undiluted high-performing ingredients, you need use only very sparingly.

For a better calming effect apply frequently.

Non-comedogenic, suitable for facial use and eye area.

Not suitable for infants under 36 months.

Not suitable for those with an allergy to the daisy or aster family, (known as a Sesquiterpene Lactone allergy).

This is not a sterile product and it contains no antimicrobial preservatives. Caution should be exercised around broken skin especially if the immune system is compromised.

As with all skin care products test a small area of skin and observe for 24hrs to be sure there is no reaction before applying generally. Should irritation occurs discontinue use.

Storage & Shipping

Store all Lyonsleaf products in a cool dark place to preserve beneficial compounds and avoid solid products melting.

Stored properly and unopened all products will keep indefinitely. Use within 12 months of opening.

If a solid product does melt, reset it in a refrigerator. Products containing shea butter should be warmed to a liquid state and then reset quickly in a refrigerator to avoid the shea butter forming grainy lumps as it hardens.

    I've been using this for quite a few years now and I love it. It smells wonderful and is so nice on my skin. Would definitely recommend.

    The cream has helped to get rid of the itchy, scaly skin on my calves, elbows and also on the back of my hands. It is so nourishing, and a joy to use.

    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.
