Safe – Formulated from excellent, non-toxic, mostly organic ingredients. Includes organic shea and cocoa butter, pansy, calendula and chamomile.
Responsible – Weleda makes it a priority to be in dialogue with the people who it works with and works actively with individual farming partners to address specific difficulties in country areas by funding education and facilities such as schools or raw material processing sites in small, rural areas. Through organic cultivation of nearly 248 km2 worldwide (the equivalent of 35,000 football pitches) Weleda is taking active measures to improve soil health and to conserve biodiversity.
To raise awareness for the importance of biodiversity, Weleda Australia has been running the Bee B&B Hotel program since 2016 and has gifted over 500 insect hotels and teaching curriculums to primary schools in Australia. The project allows children to learn and observe native bees and the important role they play in our ecosystem.
Weleda use 100% green electricity and approximately 50% renewable energy at production sites in Germany, Switzerland and France. By 2022 Weleda aims to increase its renewable energy consumption to 80%. Rain water is collected and used for the irrigation of the medicinal plant gardens and biodynamic farming methods employed to increase the formation of humus, which stores carbon effectively.
I love how smooth this product applies, it really feels like it’s melting into my skin. It has a really pleasant smell that isn’t too fragranced and I’ve definitely noticed an improvement in how moisturised my skin looks and feels while using it!
My skin gets really dry in winter and I often find that lotions and oils don’t quite cut it in those extreme moments. Enter the Skin Food Body Butter… It’s exactly what my skin has been calling out for and meets my insatiable moisture needs and absorbs so fully, it doesn’t leave a greasy feeling on my skin at all. So good you’ll actually get cravings for it.
I love the texture and smell of the body butter and that it absorbed quickly into my skin. I value Weleda’s certified natural and organic ingredients and their ventures into conservation and intention to be completely waste-free.
I love the texture, I love the scent, and I love how a little goes a long way. There’s no greasy residue left after application, meaning I can dress immediately. It leaves my sun-damaged skin feeling soft and hydrated. Such a great product.
