Product Information

Harper's Bazaar Beauty Hot 100 2012 - Best Natural Skin Secret: "A must have to keep on hand for when skin needs a boost. Expect to see and feel the difference within days."

A rich cream to deep nourish, protect and repair skin. For dry and rough skin.

A deep-penetrating replenishing skin repair cream for dry patches of skin and for added winter protection. Contains extracts of soothing chamomile, calendula wild pansy and a blend of enriching oils and waxes to provide a fine protective barrier against the ravages of wind and weather.

A favourite of Red Magazine's Beauty Director, Sophie Forte:

“When I kept seeing this on makeup artists’ tables backstage at the shows and on shoots, I was intrigued to try it. Now I see why. Sure, it’s generally too much to use all over the face (unless I’m on a plane, in which case it’s a brilliantly occlusive barrier to dehydration), but it’s richly nourishing texture lends itself wonderfully to adding sheen to cheekbones and lips instead of using a pearl highlighter product and is an instant panacea to skin that’s remotely red or rough.”


Even before the addition of the plant extracts and essential oils the base itself is food for dry skin. Hypoallergenic lanolin, Sweet Almond oil and Sunflower Seed oil are three of the main ingredients of the base. Lanolin, chemically, is almost identical to sebum, the natural oil produced by the skin. It is therefore an ideal substance to 'feed' to dry skin. Both Almond and Sunflower Seed oil soften and soothe the skin and also assist in the penetration of other soothing, rejuvenating ingredients.

Skin Food can be used as a nourishing day and night cream. It is good for rough, dry skin anywhere on the body; face, hands, elbows, knees etc. It can be used as a protective cream in harsh weather and is excellent for anyone regularly out of doors.

Directions:
A little goes a long way, so apply sparingly. This very rich cream is best applied to the face by gently patting on, so as to avoid dragging the skin. Elsewhere on the body, gently smooth into the skin until the cream is absorbed. To deeply nourish hard working, dry hands: apply liberally, cover with gloves and leave overnight.

Review This Product

Victoria Beckham apparently loves this moisturiser and, although this cream hasn't given me her long limbs, it has given me softer hydrated skin. This very thick cream is a pleasure to use, is easily absorbed into the skin, especially when skin is warm after showering. It smells stunning! Very fresh and natural. A beautiful product !

This cream is a miracle in a tube!! My skin has been so rough for as long as I can remember, tight and uncomfortable would be an understatement! From the first day using Skin Food I found it gave me such relief. And now after two months my skin is finally smooth and soft...thank you Weleda!!

Lovely "Skin Food"! Completely natural ingredients. Created by anthroposophy with philosophy and knowledge! Has a wonderful aroma of herbs and essential oils soothing and feeding the skin and the spirit. I adore it!

Skin food really is a bit of a wonder cream! Clears up dry patches almost instantly and is great for the colder months. Has a slightly odd smell that reminds me a little of suncream but its quite refreshing and will probably be great for taking on holidays for any burnt spots! An all round great skin saviour!!

Great product. Calms my skin after sun exposure, fixes my dehydrated skin, gets rid of the dryness and is great for when you're crashing out at home or when you go for a walk in cold climates. Such beautiful dewiness!!

Lena, Stavanger

One of very few creams I can use on the allergic contact eczema that I occasionally get on my hands. Can be used anywhere. Divine smell!

Brigid Kennedy, Bath

It's my everything - face cream, hand cream, leg cream. Rich and nourishing! Recommended for dry and picky skin.

Santa, Stockholm

Brilliant cream for the face. Has really helped with my patches of dry skin. My skin is glowing! Also great to use as highlighter on cheeks. Excellent value

Laura, Scotland

This is so thick I use it as a face mask! It smells wonderful and also keeps dry patches moisturised for hours!

Sophie, Falmouth
