For Dry & Rough Skin
A rich cream to deep nourish, protect and repair skin, ideal for winter skin protection, use on hands, feet, body and face.
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, 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.
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.Suitable for vegetarians.

Reviews for Weleda Skin Food 75ml
I received a 10ml sample in February 2017 beauty box. The 10ml lasted absolutely forever! I was very excited to receive this cream as its got a great ingredient list. However, I found the cream difficult to use as a facial moisturiser. It is extremely thick, so application and how it looks once applied is not the best. I mixed it with facial oil thinking it would thin out the application, but it made the cream extremely greasy as it is extremely hydrating and thick. Good cream for those who have extreme condition, however, perhaps not for the face.
Received this in February beauty box so have been using for a couple of months.
Great on problem areas such as elbows. Received a 10ml sample which is going to last for ages as you only need a tiny amount. Easily absorbed and has a lovely fresh citrus scent
