The new Skin Food menu

Natural beauty pioneer Weleda has announced the launch of two new products to expand the cult Skin Food lineup: Skin Food Light and Skin Food Lip Balm.

Since the launch of Weleda’s original Skin Food in 1926, the iconic NATRUE-certified moisturiser has steadily become known as a ‘best-kept beauty secret’, attracting a loyal following including high-profile fans such as Victoria Beckham and Adele.

This unique product has certainly stood the test of time; a tube now sells every 23 seconds thanks to its versatile, nourishing and effective formulation. The full Skin Food collection is available exclusively from and Holland & Barrett stores from March 2019 and from selected natural beauty retailers from April 2019.

All products are NATRUE certified genuinely natural.

£7.95 30ml, vegetarian

The original formulation remains unchanged – a time-honoured combination of pure plant oils, protective waxes and therapeutic plant extracts of biodynamic calendula from Weleda’s own medicinal herb gardens. Organic ingredients such as chamomile from Weleda’s farming partners in Kosovo, rosemary from Portugal and the finest organic sunflower seed oil from Hungary provide precious oil extractions.

With each ingredient carefully selected for its skin-caring benefits, Skin Food is a much loved multi-tasking and multi-award winning product suitable for hands, face or body.

£6.95 8ml, vegetarian

Lightly perfumed with natural essential oils, Skin Food Lip Balm has a rich texture
to comfort dry or chapped lips and protect against the elements. Restorative
rosemary, soothing viola tricolor, chamomile and calendula, combined with natural waxes
in a nourishing transparent balm, create the perfect combination to provide long-lasting
moisturisation that leaves lips feeling soft and supple. Suitable for those intolerant to gluten.

Made with key ingredients synonymous with the original, Skin Food Light has a lighter texture, leaving skin feeling soft, smooth and instantly hydrated. Ideal for oily or combination skin, this new formulation still includes skin-healing calendula, soothing chamomile, smoothing viola tricolor and revitalising rosemary. The addition of
organic cocoa seed butter from farming partners in Peru, together with organic shea butter from Burkina Faso, means this silky skin saviour glides on beautifully, instantly comforting thirsty skin.

It is naturally scented with essential oils of sweet orange and lavender for a slightly fresher but nonetheless instantly recognisable Skin Food fragrance. Suitable for use on hands, face or body.

£18.95 150ml, vegan

For dry skin in need of some extra care, the new Skin Food Body Butter is formulated with a
host of nourishing ingredients to provide long-lasting moisturise and protection. Cocoa butter and shea butter are combined to create a rich and luxurious whipped texture, while essential oils of rosemary, calendula, chamomile and the aromatic resin of the benzoin tree, provides a calming fragrance.

Maintaining the core Skin Food ingredients, it is easy to apply and quickly
absorbed into the skin.
