How to soothe everything from baby rashes to eczema with an plant-based Calendula Cream

No parent wants to see their baby suffer with itchy, irritated skin. But you also don’t want to slather your baby in chemicals and toxins either. So what’s a parent to do? Simple: seek a better alternative! Now there’s a way to soothe every type of baby rash without the health concerns and side effects associated with ordinary baby creams. Introducing – Era Organics’ Calendula Cream.

What Does Calendula Cream Do?

Our moisturizing calendula cream is used to treat common baby rashes, providing protection against inflammation and eliminating itching. Its powerful, nourishing ingredients can even prevent diaper rash before it starts. Because of its targeted ingredients, this calendula cream promotes cell regeneration, providing an effective solution for those with dry skin conditions. It also encourages faster wound healing caused by scratching.

Since babies need extra gentle protection, the calendula cream is formulated for use on sensitive skin to effectively treat baby acne, baby eczema, hives, and itchiness. However, just because it’s gentle enough for babies, doesn’t mean it isn’t powerful enough for adults. In fact, adults who struggle with allergic reactions to skin products can find safe, effective relief with this non-toxic, hydrating Calendula Cream.

Nourishing Ingredients in Calendula Cream


1. Calendula Oil in Calendula Cream:

Calendula oil in calendula cream has proven useful in relieving the pain and irritation associated with dermatitis. It also treats acne by preventing the bacteria, acne vulgaris, from growing. Applying calendula regularly has even been shown to prevent people from developing acne in the first place. The same goes for baby acne. This Calendula Oil also has wound-healing properties and the ability to help stop bleeding. All of these actions are thanks to its potent antiseptic, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory properties. Because of its mild nature, calendula oil is especially helpful in soothing diaper rash and any other form of baby irritation.

2. Aloe Vera in Calendula Cream:

Aloe Vera has antimicrobial properties that help protect skin from harmful microbes. Its cool, soothing feel also helps eliminate that burning sensation that happens when you scratch too much. Its ability to accelerate skin cell growth is one of our favorite benefits as the generation of new skin is essential to healing and restoration. Plus, aloe vera is loaded with skin-friendly nutrients like vitamins A, C, and E to feed baby’s skin for deeper hydration and quicker relief.

3. Coconut Oil in Calendula Cream:

For people with dry skin, using coconut oil improves the moisture content of skin thanks to its rich saturated fat and fatty acid content. Because of this, it can be incredibly effective in soothing symptoms associated with baby eczema, including intense itching (or inconsolable crying), redness, and painful cracking. Even better, the structure of coconut oil allows it to penetrate deeply and absorb completely, providing its antibacterial and antifungal properties at a deeper level.

4. Rose Water in Calendula Cream:

Rose water contains powerful antioxidants that can help protect skin cells from damage caused by free radicals. Known as oxidation, this damage is associated with increased signs of aging and even dangerous diseases like cancer. Rose water also has anti-inflammatory properties that help soothe irritation caused by eczema and rosacea. Rich in essential fatty acids and vitamins, it can even treat burns, reduce the appearance of scars, and more.

5. Zinc in Calendula Cream:

Zinc is a vital mineral for our body. It helps speed up wound healing and is used to treat skin injuries such as ulcers and insect bites. Especially beneficial for skin, this mineral aids in collagen synthesis, inflammatory response, and immune function - all of which are needed for proper (and fast) healing. You’ve probably noticed that zinc oxide is a popular ingredient in diaper rash creams and sunscreens. That’s because it can help lower inflammation associated with rash and irritation while also providing sun protection and aiding the healing of damaged tissue.

6. Olive Oil in Calendula Cream:

Olive oil has antibacterial properties and nutrients that kill harmful bacteria. It also reduces inflammation and protects blood cholesterol from oxidation. Olive oil is also rich in antioxidants. These antioxidants reduce the risk of developing certain cancers like skin cancer. That’s because they protect against damage caused by free radicals - aka highly reactive atoms or molecules that are unpaired or “free.” They are a well-known cause of cancer. Olive oil is also highly moisturizing and gentle enough to be used on the most sensitive skin. Because of its nutrients and properties, olive oil can help improve skin elasticity while protecting it against harmful bacteria.

7. Shea Butter in Calendula Cream:

Naturally rich in vitamins F, E, and A, shea butter provides natural ultraviolet (UV) protection. It also provides the skin with essential fatty acids and nutrients needed for collagen production. Its fatty acids like linolenic, oleic, palmitic, and stearic acid nourish the skin and prevent it from drying out. Thanks to one of its compounds known as lupeol cinnamate, shea butter can even reduce inflammation in the skin, which is especially beneficial for baby acne and diaper rash.

8. Goji Berry in Calendula Cream:

Also known as wolfberry, goji berry is a bright red-orange berry that comes from a shrub native to China. With its rich beta carotene content, goji berries help rejuvenate and heal damaged skin. It also contains amino acids that help reduce fine lines and wrinkles while preventing the onset of dehydrated skin. Its polysaccharides further promote skin hydration and an overall radiant glow. Goji berries also help reduce inflammation by increasing blood circulation and the metabolic rate of skin cells. This increased blood flow to the skin promotes quicker healing and reduced appearance of scars.

9. Rosemary Oil in Calendula Cream:

Rosemary oil contains calcium, iron, and other essential vitamins that benefit the skin. One of its primary claims to fame is its ability to reduce excess oil production, which is especially beneficial in preventing acne. It is also a natural antioxidant that prevents skin damage from environmental exposure, which could include everything from toxins to UV rays. Rosemary is also naturally antimicrobial, which means it helps fight skin conditions like eczema, acne, and dermatitis.

10. MSM in Calendula Cream:

MSM or Methylsulfonylmethane is a natural compound found in meat, dairy products, and vegetables. It is useful in skin care because MSM provides a natural source of sulfur, which can be used to treat skin conditions such as acne and rosacea. MSM also has potent anti-inflammatory properties, but its deepest benefit is due to its ability to boost collagen levels in the skin, which in turn promotes faster skin regeneration and softening.

11. Cocoa Seed Butter:

Upon application, cocoa seed butter protects exposed or injured skin from harmful stimuli while also providing pain relief and slowing water loss from the skin. It works by forming a protective barrier on the skin’s surface, which helps prevent the chafing that’s so common with diapers. It also acts as a surface cleansing agent and prevents the skin from further infection.

Natural Alternative to Anti-Itch & Rash Creams

As adults, we’re all too familiar with how reactive our skin can be to certain compounds, so just imagine how babies feel as their skin is far more sensitive than ours. Now pair that with the realization that most creams and baby wipes contain a preservative called ML or MIT, which stands for methylisothiazolinone - a powerful synthetic preservative used to prevent bacterial contamination.

It is a cytotoxin that affects different types of cells and increases the effects of exposure to toxic agents and free radicals. MIT is also highly allergenic, causing allergic reactions that can lead to allergic contact dermatitis. Besides that, many diaper rash creams contain toxic ingredients like BHA, parabens, and petrolatum:

  • BHA or Butylated Hydroxyanisole is a preservative that extends the cream’s shelf life, but it can also disrupt certain endocrine functions.
  • Parabens include ethylparaben, benzylparaben, propylparaben, and butylparaben, which have been linked to cancer.
  • Petrolatum (aka mineral oil) is from petroleum. Petroleum that is not properly refined can cause liver and spleen problems - not to mention it can clog pores and even dry out delicate baby skin.

Era Organic’s Calendula Cream, on the other hand, is non-toxic with ingredients found in nature and proven beneficial to skin. Instead of covering the problem with chemicals and providing temporary relief, our calendula cream feeds delicate baby skin the nutrients it needs to heal - no more dry, itchy, or irritated skin.


It’s easy to use “just anything” in an effort to soothe your baby and help them feel better. Unfortunately, many mainstream products only make matters worse by introducing harmful chemicals and toxins to an already frustrating situation. At Era Organics, we believe in providing wholesome solutions that provide long-term results, all through the power of nature. Our botanical calendula cream for babies will help eliminate diaper rash, hives, baby acne, and more naturally, so you can have your happy, healthy baby back. It’s 100% free from hidden toxins and harmful chemicals, so you can rest easy knowing your baby’s sensitive skin is safe and well taken care of.
