Product reviews from our experts…


In a word: OBSESSED. The original Skin Food already has a cult following, but surely this will take the lead? A beautiful firm butter that melts quickly leaving a non-greasy, delicious-smelling softness like nothing else. I found myself slathering it on multiple times a day, just because I loved it so much. This Certified Natural, vegan dream comes packaged in a recycled glass jar. Consider me a convert.

There isn’t enough space to do justice to the lengths Weleda goes to when it comes to ethics and sustainability. They are leading the charge when it comes to showing how a brand can actually do the right thing not just by its customers and their own bottom line, but for the environment and the greater good of its people and beyond.

This product feels very luxurious to use, it soaks in quickly but also leaves your skin feeling hydrated and soft. The smell is strong but very pleasant. I like the size of the container as well. I like the focus on natural, organic plant-based ingredients and that Weleda supports 50 farms in doing so. I also appreciate that part of the social responsibility is based in Australia and Australian farms.

OK I’ve loved Weleda products since I started reviewing for Clean + Conscious, but the Skin Food Body Butter is just next level awesomeness. I’m especially impressed by the slightly tactile large print writing on the box, and the shape on top of the cream which I think is a snail or spiral. It’s also amazing to read how Weleda is going from strength to strength in regenerative farming and commercial beauty products.
