Weleda Launches Skin Food Face Care Range

Nourishing Skincare Collection by Weleda

May 18th, 2023

Nearly a century after the launch of its iconic Skin Food Original, Weleda is introducing a new Skin Food Face Care range. Since 1926, Skin Food has become a firm favourite with makeup artists, celebrities and beauty experts alike. Now a viral TikTok sensation appearing in over 99 million searches, Skin Food is a beauty staple with one tube selling every 10 seconds.

The original Skin Food has multiple uses, but Skin Food Face is the first range in the Skin Food line up dedicated solely to facial skincare.Designed to support dry skin, or as a nourishing boost to skin going through a dry phase.

Plant powered and certified natural, the new facial care products harness the power of Skin Food’s key ingredients - rosemary, viola tricolor, calendula, chamomile - with the addition of active botanicals including antioxidant-rich centella asiatica extract, sacha inchi oil, and olive squalane to nourish and replenish.

The Collection

Skin Food Nourishing Cleansing Balm vegan £12.95 (75ml)
This refreshing cleansing balm is delicately fragranced with natural essential oils including the light freshness of sweet orange balanced by warm balsamic notes of benzoin. The smallest amount of this oil-to-milk formulation is applied to the skin, and with a little warm water and light massage the cleanser is instantly emulsified into an effective cleansing milk that can be rinsed off easily. Unlike cleansers which strip the skin of oil, threatening its natural barrier function and balanced microbiome, the new Skin Food Nourishing Cleansing Balm is proven microbiome-friendly and conditions while it cleanses, leaving skin feeling soft and replenished.

Skin Food Nourishing Day Cream vegan £14.95 (40ml)

This protective day cream is formulated to intensively nourish dry skin, hydrate and restore radiance. Refreshing sweet orange is predominant in the fragrant essential oil mix, to start the day on an upbeat note. A time-honoured combination of pure plant oils and extracts including biodynamic calendula from Weleda’s own medicinal herb gardens, together with chamomile, rosemary, sunflower seed oil and shea butter, are all sourced from long-term organic farming partners. These are complimented by organic olive leaf extract, included for its protective antioxidant effect and skin-soothing properties, together with olive squalane which contributes natural skin-conditioning, emollient properties, to maintain a healthy skin barrier and protect against the drying effects of weather and central heating. This silky skin saviour glides on beautifully, instantly hydrating and absorbing easily whilst delivering long-lasting moisturisation.

Skin Food Night Cream vegan £14.95 40ml
This nourishing night cream is made with key ingredients synonymous with the original including skin-healing calendula and skin-smoothing viola tricolor, together with precious organic cold-pressed sacha inchi oil rich in alpha linoleic acid prized for its cell-regenerating properties, whilst the skin-caring polyunsaturated fatty acids reduce transepidermal moisture loss and help maintain elasticity. Organic shea butter gets to work during the skin’s nightly repair phase to strengthen the skin’s natural barrier function. Together with centella asiatica extract, selected for its ability to stimulate collagen synthesis and encourage the skin to regenerate and recover, so you wake to a radiant, silky-soft complexion. Relaxing lavender essential oil at the heart of the fragrance blend provides the perfect bedtime scent.


Sustainable Inside and Out

The Skin Food Face collection is packaged sustainably with easy-to-recycle elements that can all go out for kerbside collection. The two creams come in infinitely-recyclable green glass jars which are made from recycled glass. The outer cartons are from FSC certified board made with at least 82% recycled fibres, and lids are made from widely recyclable PP plastic. The cleansing balm comes in a tube made from 100% recycled aluminium plus an HDPE plastic cap, and can go out with household recycling. Printing on the inner sides of the cartons replaces previous in-pack leaflets, to communicate Weleda’s sustainability credentials.

All products are NATRUE-certified natural and made without mineral oils or silicones, artificial additives, microplastics, GMOs or animal testing, and their renewable, biodegradable ingredients are as gentle on the planet as they are on skin. Their ethically-sourced ingredients are UEBT-certified sustainable.
