White Mallow Derma Collection
Soothe sensitive and eczema prone skin with natural calm
The White Mallow skin care range helps rebalance the skin‘s natural barrier and stimulate its regenerative powers.
The skin is the largest organ in the human body, protecting us from external influences. A baby’s skin is five times thinner than an adult’s and contains less fat, so moisture can easily escape. In some babies, this can often lead to dry skin.
In cooperation with midwives, we developed the White Mallow range specifically for baby skin that is sensitive or eczema-prone. Children affected are often emotionally and physically sensitive and restless, with skin that tends to overreact to common external stimuli such as air pollution and extreme temperatures or hot/dry air in a heated room.
Hypersensitive skin needs gentle care
Just like hayfever and asthma, eczema is an atopic disease caused by a genetic oversensitivity to stimuli.
It is a chronic disease characterised by patches of dry, red, scaly skin, often extremely itchy. It primarily appears on the face, knees and elbows.
Stress, anxiety and joy can trigger an attack of eczema, which often occurs in three phases. Each phase requires individual care.
Calms And Nourishes Delicate Skin
Weleda’s White Mallow range covers the skin in a protective layer. Unlike Vaseline or mineral oil, skin-related fats can actually stabilise the corneal layer of the skin – helping it to maintain its moisture.
At the same time, the skin is deeply hydrated and enveloped in a protective cocoon. Mucilage from the roots of the organic White Mallow, extracts of Pansy, organic Coconut Oil and Beeswax help protect the skin.
We have deliberately avoided the use of fragrance, as children with hypersensitive skin often have difficulty correctly coping with external stimuli such as strong fragrances.

Learn more about how White Mallow protects baby's delicate skin
As far back as ancient times, White Mallow was highly regarded as a medicinal plant. It’s warm, soft touch radiates softness and sensitivity, which is why it is well suited to skin that is sensitive or affected by eczema.
From an anthroposophical view, White Mallow has a holistic effect on the nerve-sense system of the skin (epidermis). Its anti-irritant properties help calm and protect hypersensitive skin, relieving itching and promoting healthy skin development. The polysaccharides in its roots are particularly effective and, combined with water, form an organic gel or mucus which provides moisture, alleviates irritation and envelopes the skin in a soothing cocoon.
