Weleda Skin Food is a multi-tasking hero cream for dry, rough skin on faces, elbows, hands and feet. Skin Food is a rich cream to deep nourish, protect and repair skin.
A deep-penetrating, replenishing and moisturising skin repair cream, Skin Food is ideal for dry patches of skin and for added winter protection. Weleda Skin Food 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, Skin Food's 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 moisturiser either as a day and/or 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.Skin Food soothes inflamed skin concerns and is therefore suitable for rosacea-prone skin, dermatitis and eczema.

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 cotton gloves and leave overnight.
