    I've been using Skin Food for a long time. My Mother first introduced me to your products & the smell just brings back warm memories for me. It has such a clean refreshing citrusy smell and it's ultra moisturizing for any part of the body. Love it!

    Both my husband and I work a lot outside. During the winter our hands crack and chap. Over the years we have tried so many expensive products, and none of them helped our hands very much. Then, we found Weleda Skin Food. Weleda does a tremendous job of keeping our hands soft. If we get cracked hands from the cold weather, Weleda heals them up overnight. We are very thankful for the wonderful product! Now, we always have Weleda Skin Food on hand!

    I recently started using Weleda Skin Food and I absolutely love it! I was a bit worried it would be too heavy or greasy but it absorbs very quickly and leaves my skin so soft and moisturized. I also love that it's made from all natural ingredients. I'm using it as a night cream on my face and on my dry hands. This cream is a keeper and I will be buying it for the foreseeable future!

    I came down with Sinus infection/upper respiratory infection which of course caused my nose to become raw from having to blow my nose frequently. I was applying many different products but nothing helped. Then I tried the Skin Food and it worked tremendously well. This product had blessed me. Thank you.

    I cannot stop raving about the magical powers of Skin Food. I am on a medication (a sort of Accutane) for my acne that dries out my skin so much that the peeling has brought me to tears. When my friend recommended weleda I was hesitant because it seemed too greasy for facial care but it has truly changed my life. I am no longer self conscience about checking my face every ten minutes to see if I've got any flaking because Weleda works so well! What an excellent product!

    We live in the Great Basin, where the air is a lot drier and dry skin is something I've grown accustomed to having. My 7 month old has suffered with dry, itchy skin on her tummy and on spots of her face and arms for a few months now. Her pediatrician diagnosed her with mild to severe eczema at her last visit a few weeks ago, then recommended we try CeraVe or Cetaphil. I had a few sample bottles of both from the dermatologist for my own dry hands, and tried them separately on baby's tummy itchiness.. They both increased the redness temporarily and did nothing to relieve her itchiness by the next few days of use. Exasperated, I checked out the National Eczema Association's list of baby-safe lotions they recommend, and this one caught my eye immediately. I love Weleda's Skinfood for my dry hands, and have used it for years, so I know and trust the brand. So, I gave Weleda Baby White Mallow Body Lotion a try. Nothing has worked as effectively on my daughter's dry skin than this lotion!! OVERNIGHT her tummy and face were at least 95% better! It is a fantastic product that I hope Weleda will continue to make for years to come-- it's even better on my dry hands than their Skinfood! I look forward to trying the matching Baby White Mallow face cream tomorrow on my baby girl's dry cheeks and chin-- the body lotion works well, but I'm hoping the face cream is even better!

    Really love the skin food lotion it makes my hands soft and I can easily apply it during the day as it soaks into my skin nicely. I don't know what took me so long to discover Weleda as the Wild rose face lotion saved my problematic 45 year old skin. I guess the price can be scary but I only use a little bit and my face looks 10 years younger. Thanks Weleda!

    I have worked as a Makeup Artist for all the high end brands and many high end department stores.
    I discovered Weleda Skin Food about 5 years ago and have used it on my face every day for the last 5 years. IT IS AMAZING!!!
    Working with skin care I have had access to skin creams that cost up to $400.00 a jar and NOTHING has ever compared to this cream in the dry climate of Las Vegas Nevada where I live.
    When you first use it you may feel it's heavy, but due to its natural and essential oil property it absorbs quickly and leaves my face the softest its ever been.
    I will NEVER use anything else!!!!! i use it on my face, neck and chest, PLEASE Weleda DO NOT EVER DISCONTINUE THIS BEAUTIFUL PRODUCT

    Dry weather seems to dry out my hands and my finger tips get rough. I've tried other lotions and creams without lasting results, not to mention the sticky feeling they left behind. Skin Food is a top quality product. It soaks into my dry hands and softens the dryness quickly. A little goes a long way and it smells fresh and clean. I should have bought it sooner and looked past the price. Don't ever discontinue this fabulous product, please!

    Harsh winter had decidedly arrived here in Morocco's Middle Atlas Mountains and with it dry skin. Your Skin Food is saving me! Without it my hands would be miserable and I am most grateful for this especially wonderful product. Thank you a thousand times.

    I am a long-time enthusiast of your products, a handful of which I packed along with me eight months ago when departing for the Peace Corps. Natural, perfectly-scented organic products like yours are scarce if at all possible to find in these parts. In addition to your Skin Food, I am also loving your Sea Buckthorn Body Lotion and Body Wash right now, and for as long as they will last. Sometimes these treasures show up in care packages from home, thanks to my parents :).

    Thank you again for your organic commitment, hard work, and sharing of great products. I am most grateful!!

    Hello... I just wanted to let you know you have a new customer for life.

    I recently returned to the US from hiking and camping in New Zealand for several months where I used little makeup or skincare. I went back to my US products but for some reason had a terrible reaction to them. I do not have sensitive skin and have never had a problem in the past, but over the course of three days, I developed hideous hives and itchy, peeling patches all over my face. I stopped using all my old products and tried a variety of solutions, from hydrocortisone and antihistamine creams to brands reputed to be more "pure" such as Aveeno and Neutrogena, but nothing helped.

    Finally, standing in Target one afternoon wondering what I could do, I saw a small green tube of Weleda Skin Food. I remembered someone I worked with a few years ago swore by Weleda products, so I thought why not, I'll try it, my face can't get much worse.

    Within a minute of putting Skin Food on my face, including around my eyes where the hives and peeling were worst, my skin started to calm down. After about two days, it was no longer welty and peeling. That was two weeks ago. I have continued patting on a thin layer after cleansing morning and night and am amazed that my skin has not only returned to "normal," but is getting better, looking smoother and fresher and happier than ever before.

    I have tried so many expensive skincare lines and elaborate routines with creams for night and day and eyes and t-zone and on and on... from now on I am going to use one thing: Skin Food.

    OK, I'll admit, being a guy and rubbing hand cream on is not the most manly thing to do, but after icefishing, my hands crack, bleed and peel like a son of a gun. One of my coworkers (who is a dude) secretly recommended it after he saw my hands dripping with blood (gross but true!). Skin Food has been the only thing that cures my hands, and not only that, it does it over night so no one has to know! I've never used such a product that actually heals cuts and takes the sting out. Thank you for making my icefishing expeditions much more enjoyable!

    Tanvir B.Posted: January 12, 2010

    Can I just say that Skin Food is like the BEST cream for extremely dry skin. I have extremely dry, rough, and sensitive skin, especially on my hands, and I have tried just about every product on the market and this is the only one that actually works. I live by this and I'm so glad I discovered it a year ago. My mom tried this on a rash that wouldn't go away despite medical treatment and she literally fell in love with your product. We are life long customers and sincerely appreciate that you are committed to making natural products for the whole family.

    Keep up the great work.

    I have a skin condition called Dishydrotic Eczema, which is an auto-immune problem that's related to psoriasis. I have been to numerous dermatologists, and have been through all the steroid creams (and non-steroid creams.) I was told, "you won't die FROM it, but you will die WITH it." The itching I suffered on my hands and feet was maddening, and the cracked, flaking skin was nearly unbearable. It seemed to get worse and worse. Then a friend told me about Skin Food. I ditched the prescription creams and have been using Skin Food ever since. Nothing I have tried stops the itch and promotes my skin's healing better. I've been using Skin Food now for over a year, and most days I can't even tell I've got a skin condition. Thanks Weleda! This is a truly remarkable product!

    Weleda's Skin Food is simply the best cream I have ever used. I discovered it this winter, when my oily, sensitive facial skin had a dry, bumpy layer on top of it that itched and made me look and feel horrible. (I'd bought Calendula Baby Cream for my nephew a few months earlier, and his diaper rash cleared up in one day! So I was familiar with the quality of the Weleda brand already.) After a week of using Skin Food right out of the shower while my face was still wet, I had the best skin of my life. My pores look smaller, and I have a rosy glow that I've only ever achieved before with makeup. My mother tried it over this past week while visiting, and at 65 years old, her skin suddenly has a beautifully smooth texture and rosy glow as well. She bought 5 tubes to take back with her! I've told everybody who compliments me on my skin that Weleda's Skin Food is my secret.

    Thank you so much for making such a fine product.

    I recently purchased a tube of Weleda Skin Food and it's wonderful! My hands have been so dry and I didn't quite know what product to purchase that would work well. There are many products on the market that are too greasy and some just wash off. While recently shopping at Whole Foods, I asked the cosmetic clerk for a recommendation and she told me Weleda was her favorite. I put your product on that night and saw a difference the next morning. The fragrance is very nice and I've already told my sisters to try Weleda. In fact, if my sisters don't get around to purchasing Weleda, I will buy them a tube. I haven't tried any other products in the Weleda line, but I am anxious to do so. Thank you for putting such a great hand cream on the market.

    Regards, Vivian

    This is a letter of gratitude that I was compelled to send. I have used Weleda products for several years. My eleven-year-old daughter has been suffering with a very severe rash for several weeks. The medical doctors have given it a name of Giantti-Crosti. A virus caused it. My energy healer states the virus manifested in this way due to a trauma in her early childhood. I tried several over-the-counter and prescription creams to help her discomfort, with only minimal or no result. Finally I wised up and started putting SKIN FOOD on her rash. Wow! Incredible results.Thank you, thank you so much. It has brought her prompt relief and healing. Truly food for more than skin. Thank you for the love you put into your products as well as the fine ingredients.

    With Sincere gratitude,

    I’d just like to thank you for making such wonderful products. My mother & I are huge fans of your line. We both love your Weleda foot & lip balms. I’m also a fan of your arnica ointment. But the main product I swear by is your Skin Food treatment. I now give a tube of Weleda skin food in each gift bag I give to my girlfriends for their birthdays. We always enjoy testing your new (and older) products, and have come to love your brand even more.My mother & I will continue to be loyal customers for hopefully many years to come. Thank you for your time & keep up the great work!

    Best Wishes,

    I had to write to express my satisfaction with Weleda products. I recently purchased the Wild Rose Cleansing Lotion and the Skin Food. I am extremely impressed with the quality of these products and will be converting to many more in the range.

    Keep up the great work.

    I love the smell of the Skin Food so much. I am wondering if you make any other products that have the same scent.

    Posted: March 11, 2009

    I just wanted to send you a big THANK YOU for your Skin Food cream. I've been renovating my home and the skin on my hands has suffered tremendously with all the abuse and Skin Food has helped me so much. It provides almost instant relief to the dry, chapped skin. I thought I'd tried just about everything on the market and nothing was working--I'd have to put more on every 10 minutes because my hands were drying out so badly. But with Skin Food, I can put it on twice daily and my hands continue to feel soft even when I'm working. Also, I'm a physician with a private practice here in Austin, TX, so I will be suggesting this product to my patients with dry or damaged skin. Thank you so much for developing something that actually works!

    With Gratitude,
