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

      I've been using it as an alternative to sudocream for break outs. It's great.

      Zinc and Calendula Cream

      This cream makes a lovely face primer. It feels soothing on the skin and is also good as a spot treatment. I really like it and will be ordering more in the future. I usually put the Calendula and Marshmallow Balm underneath, as I have very dry skin. Both are lovely products. Thank you!

      Ilaria Piras

      This stuff is fab! All natural and completely cured my 11 year olds perioral dermatitis. Brilliant!

      My essential

      Discovered Lyonsleaf when looking for natural alternatives to help me to clear perioral dirmetatuis and I never look back. It also helps me with rosacea and little hormonal acne. This balm is great for so many other things like mosquitoes bites. I know can live without it 😉

      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.
