Weleda Skin Food is 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.

Even before the addition of the plant extracts and essential oils the base itself is food for dry skin. Lanolin, Almond oil and Peanut 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 Peanut oil soften and soothe the skin and also assist in the penetration of other soothing, rejuvenating ingredients.

Weleda 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 for use: Apply sparingly as required. Gently smooth into the skin. On the face avoid area around the eyes. Intensive care for hard working hands: apply liberally, cover with cotton gloves and leave overnight.

Weleda Skin Food is suitable for vegetarians.

Reviews of Weleda Skin Food 4.7 out of 5 (32 reviews)

Very good on sensitive skin.
Hand cream bought for myself
I had bought this already for my feet which need some love! This time I bought for my mother and she really likes it. She has extremely sensitive skin so I am introducing her to natural products and she really likes this. Will buy again.
This product is fantastic for dry skin, but I've also been moisturising my nails and cuticles twice a day for two months. My nails are now the strongest and longest they have ever been. I'm 62 and have been ill with ME/Fibromyalgia for 26 years. The illnesses/medications have affected my nails, leaving them thin, fragile and 'rippled/ridged'. Recently while driving, I caught my nail and thought, "I've broken it." I checked my thumb later and to my surprise, found that only a small area of the top layer of the nail had peeled back. I pulled it off and the nail looked 100%. They're so strong and long, I've had to file down my nails three times! I mentioned my nail results to a friend; she's used Skin Food for two weeks and agrees that her nails are longer and stronger! I've just ordered another three tubes. HappyMe!!!
This is by far the best hand cream for troubled skins, and dry, cracked hands quickly feel relieved.
Products good
Lovely product, as always.
Feels quite heavy as a face moisturiser but I've been mixing it with a lighter one and it now does the job well! Very good for dry skin which in fairness is the main job it claims to do.
use all the time- organic product. will recommend to others.
I have not used this product before and find it a bit greasy, but it does sink in overnight and moisturises well, so will continue to use it.
Fab cream, thick, rich, moisturising, protecting. I use it as a face moisturiser when working in the elements. Lovely scent too.
I ordered *** after reading other good reviews on the product.

I use it as an all-over moisturizer for my skin and face since I'm 32.

It applies heavy, which initially worried me since I expected it to make my skin look and feel greasy. But I've found that once it absorbs the heaviness doesn't last, but the moisture does.

I have an infant son and have definitely noticed that it's given my tired complexion a needed boost, it smells fantastic, and if he slobbers all over my face, I don't have to worry about the ingredients.

I'd definitely recommend.
This I have used for a number of years for skin sores, erruptions, grazes, cuts etc., I think it absorbs in to the skin well and helps with healing, the smell is also yummy!
Excellent product. Have only used a few times and my skin is better already.
great moisturiser for winter, only one that prevents my skin from the elements. Rich without being greasy, great for the hands too!
This really is wonder - cream and much better than 8 hour cream, smells very natural and nourishing too
Possibly not as moisturizing as I thought it would be. Was hoping for something better than body butter but this isn't it.
I've used this product and this brand many times. I love it because I have eczema and it soothes and nourishes my skin. It smells great and is more natural than most alternatives. Its a bit more expensive than a lot of other products but you get what you pay for and its reassuring that you're not putting loads of nasty chemicals on to your skin.
Have been using this for years, best cream for your hands, not greasy and gets absorbed really well without leaving lots of residue/
I have used product previously whenever I experience dry skin (to face) and going into the winter months, the cream helps to nourish my skin. Prob best for maturer skins (30+).
This is the best overnight pick me up for your skin, and does not irritate even the most sensitive. Superb price too!
Great for dry knees and elbows. I think it smells like a delicious gin and tonic!!
use this product as a night cream and on nails, cuticles, hands,lips and elbows. Occasionally get tempted by other products but always return to Weleda Skin Food - it's a marvellous all-rounder.
Wonderfully rich and smells great. So if you suffer from dry skin this is a great product. As far as using it on your face, I have used it as a treat on my face, applying it by melting it gently between your fingers and then dabbing it lightly onto my skin after a lovely warm bath, try and avoid rubbing it on as this has a tendancy to drag the skin which you want to avoid.
Also brilliant for dry lips. All in all a fine product.
Quite greasy but I can live with that as it does seem to be making a difference to the dry skin of my hands.
It seems a good product.
Good products - used before
Quite greasy but does feel like it will nourish! Haven't used it enough to know end result yet!
bit greasy, but good for a night time cream
Gives a glow to the skin. quality product as you'd expect from Weleda
great product - I'm pregnant and have extremely dry skin at the moment, this product is actually rich enough to help my skin feel better.
fabulous product for dry skin really effective, great smelling, good for face moisturiser for really dry or mature skin. I love this and will be back for more
