Here’s another skincare collection from Weleda that has earned a spot on our ‘it list’ for winter, says editor Trudi Brewer.
The almond-oil base to this formula helps to protect and correct easily irritated, sensitive skin, which we think is ideal for our chilly temperatures right now. Here’s what we like about this certified NATRUE
(which means 100 per cent natural skin care). Read on to find out more.
What's in it?
The base of this organic skincare line is cold-pressed sweet almond oil. The goodness from the almond nut packs a powerful punch when it comes to calming and soothing the skin. Rich in vitamin E, a brilliant antioxidant (that helps fight free radicals), and helps your skin naturally defend itself against UV radiation damage. It also contains vitamin A, which helps to speed up skin cell turnover, great for anyone who gets the odd breakout. Finally, it also contains linolenic acid (an unsaturated fatty oils), that helps to nourish the skin - fast.
