Skin Food is the name given to this successful moisturizers lineup. Weleda has been selling it since de 2009, under the approbation of all organization and medical community in general.
It promises to make your skin feel hydrated, smooth and moisturized since the first use. Another good thing about Skin Food that it’s important to point out, is the fact it’s completely made with natural ingredients.
What Ingredients are in Weleda Skin Food
We can tell if any product is dangerous or not by following up its composition, usually in the back or container of the product. Since we are looking effective and non-toxic natural ingredients, we are going to do a little research for you.
Let’s take a look at Skin Food’ ingredients:
Pansy is natural large-flowered hybrid plant cultivated as a garden flower. Pansy plants are new specie, and that’s why they don’t have an origin per se. They are result of hybridization from lots of similar species from the Melanium section. Primarily, they are a mix between genus Viola and Viola tricolor.
Even though genus Viola and Viola tricolor are originally from Europe and Western Asia, Pansy’ origins are unknown. Studies have shown that the Viola Tricolor extract is very effective when it comes to taking care and repairing dry or sensitive skin.
The effect caused by the extract of Pansy is due to the long-chain sugars that form a moisturizing layer on the skin for protection and rejuvenation.
Sunflowers are special flowers that were given to us for a special reason. They are beautiful to watch in the dawn, but their benefits are bigger than its beauty. We all know that Sunflower extracts are used for:
- Promoting cardiovascular health
- Lowering and stabilizing the cholesterol level
- Potent source of magnesium
- And many more
However, we are going to focus exclusively on its benefits – especially on skin care and its effects on our skin.
Sunflowers seed oil extract is well known to for its rich content of vitamin E, nutrients and antioxidants. Do you know that is best for combatting skincare issues like acne, redness, inflammation and even aging? Well, nothing beats sunflowers seed oil.
The sunflower seed oil has properties that help your skin retaining its natural moisture, thanks to the vitamin E. Also, the vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant, something that protects your skin from UV rays. It’s also powerful against acne issues. Since it is rich on vitamin A, C and D, it helps to regenerate new skin cells and it kills the acne-causing bacteria immediately.
Something people don’t know is the fact that Sunflower seed extract also works as an anti-aging solution. In addition, many less know that it’s rich on beta-carotene and Omega- acid, which together help to decrease inflammation, aging and help to create and remove new cell skin.
Rosemary is a woody perennial herb with fragrant, evergreen and needle-like leaves with flowers ranging all colors. It’s especially known for its benefits in the entire body, and also it’s known in the kitchen, and for the oil extracting people does on this plant.
Studies have found that Rosemary is a strong antioxidant that can help you to battle against many diseases. However, at this time we are going to focus exclusively on its benefits, but in our beloved skin. This evergreen plant is a powerful ally when it comes to battling against premature aging.
Another of its benefits is the capacity of the rosemary of making our skin more flexible and increasing its elasticity, therefore decreasing droopiness and age spots.
The anti-inflammatory properties of rosemary are also something that helps a lot because it eliminates the puffiness from age, or even nights when you’ve drunk too much and sleep so bad.
Weleda has also included the famous sweet almond oil, which is a really popular and effective ingredient for skin care due to its rich content of vitamin E and other nutrients. They are one of the healthiest food you can ingest, and how tasteful it’s, right? Well, sweet almond is almost perfect, whether it’s for your daily nutrition or inside skin care products.
Sweet almond is a rich source of valuable nutrients, such as vitamin E, vitamin A, protein, potassium, fatty acids, even zinc. There is no question why this is so healthy for your body!
We all know what vitamin E has for us to offer. It’s a powerful antioxidant that can eliminate bacteria and other toxins in our body. Antioxidants are like the firefighters on the body, they look for fire (toxins, radicals, and more bad stuff) and they eliminate them. When your body doesn’t have enough antioxidants, your skin’s collagen layer starts to deteriorate causing your skin to look bad.
Do you have acne problems? Well, you’ll leave them behind because it’s package with vitamin A which help reducing acne. Also, it’s effective to clean out the dirt and oil in your pores – direct consequence of acne issues.
The fatty acid contains inside the sweet almond helps to retain moisture and contributes to healing chapped and irritated skin.
Chamomile is probably an unknown ingredient for many of you. It’s really not that common to find it on products, even though it’s inside of some really effective skin care products.
This herb has been used for thousands of years, as it’s one of the most ancient medicinal herbs used by mankind. It’s often served as a tea, made from dried chamomile flowers, but we are going to focus on its benefits on our skin:
- As many of the ingredients inside of Skin Food, Chamomile works incredibly well as an anti-inflammatory. This is amazing for our acne issues since acne is prone to attack skin types who have inflammation.
- Increases the penetration and therefore the effectiveness of other skin care ingredients or topical. This means chamomile helps the body to absorb more efficiently the ingredients inside Skin Food.
- A powerful antioxidant, antifungal and antiseptic, which are amazing properties when it comes to keeping our skin with a healthy layer of collagen.
- Helps to heal the skin, especially from minor skin wounds due to its disinfection properties.
