Coconut OilCocos Nucifera (Coconut) OilPure Coconut Oil melts on the skin and leaves a notable cooling effect. It forms a protecting film on the skin that retains the skin moisture and it is therefore especially suitable for the care of dry and sensitive skin. The typical and characteristic fragrance of the coconut oil leaves a pleasant scent, even to non-perfumed products.
Sesame Seed OilSesamum Indicum (Sesame) Seed OilSesame Seed Oil works as a perfect massage oil and is used for the care of wan, dry and mature skin but it is also used as a hair conditioning product. It has a great antioxidative effect, skin caring properties and is an ideal carrier oil for active agents.

Forms a protective barrier to promote healthy skin
Calms and soothes senses and skin
The white mallow’s beneficial properties are shown in its botanical name. Althaea derives from the Greek and means ‘curing’. White mallow was used as a healing plant in ancient times in China, Syria, Egypt and Greece, and was probably brought to Central Europe only in the Middle Ages to coincide with the beginning of settled agriculture. Nowadays it is cultivated on salty soils in coastal regions.
At first glance, it is a rather delicate plant, but the white mallow can withstand lack of water and heat easily. Gel-like substances in the roots and flowers protect the plant from drying out and the high concentration of mucilaginous substances in the roots make white mallow calming, soothing, emollient, protective and moisturising. Its gentle, almost white flowers blushed with pink and its delicate fragrance have a very calming and soothing effect on the senses, completely unlike other blooms with vibrant colours and intense fragrance.
As delicate as baby skin
For exactly these reasons, the white mallow is ideal for baby care. Delicate, sensitive and immature baby skin has to undergo a process of development and learning during the first years of life. It needs a soft protective and warming layer, and no unnecessary fragrances to bring the skin out of balance. The white mallow binds moisture in the delicate skin of babies and stimulates development of the skin’s own protective forces to keep them from harmful environmental influences.
Gentle protection for sensitive skin
In conjunction with pansy, which is soothing and healing, our white mallow range demonstrates its protective properties particularly well. In addition, coconut oil and sesame oil nourish the skin intensively. Even for neurodermitic and acutely sensitive baby skin, the irritation-free ingredients are highly suitable.
How to use
Gently apply all over baby’s skin daily. Also suitable for use by adults with hypersensitive, dry or atopic skin.
