Swiss skin-care brand Weleda has been around since 1921, creating moisture-rich products that keep our skin soft, supple, and hydrated. One of its holy grail products, Skin Food Original Ultra-Rich Cream ($19), is a body cream that launched in 1926 and remains so popular that a tube of it sells every five seconds. Plus, it's a favorite of celebrities like Ashley GrahamVictoria Beckham, and Gwenyth Paltrow.

Though the original Skin Food formula is meant for the body, people love it so much that they often use it on their faces—which is why the brand decided to translate the product's nourishing superpowers into a line of facial-care products that are specifically designed to be applied from the neck up.

The Weleda Skin Food Face-Care collection, which launched this week, comprises the Skin Food Nourishing Day Cream ($25), the Skin Food Nourishing Night Cream ($25), and the Skin Food Face Care Nourishing Oil-to-Milk Cleanser ($20). Each product is supremely rich and moisturizing, using ingredients like moisturizing olive leaf extract, soothing cica, and calming chamomile. Shop and learn more about each individual product below.

Skin Food Nourishing Day Cream — $25.00

Lighter than both the original Skin Food and Skin Food Light, this fast-absorbing cream moisturizes your skin without leaving behind any greasy residue. It’s made with chamomile flower extracts to soothe angry complexions; olive leaf extract to smooth skin and minimize the signs of environmental damage; plant-based squalane to soften skin while strengthening the moisture barrier; and shea butter to lock in moisture.

Heavier than Skin Food Light but lighter than Skin Food Original, this buttery cream will intensely nourish your skin as you sleep. Sacha inchi oil improves the skin’s barrier function while reducing water loss and maintaining elasticity. Cica improves skin firmness and elasticity. And plant-based squalane softens and protects the skin.

With dry hands, blend this soft balm onto dry skin to lift away makeup and the day’s grime. Then, add warm water and feel the oil transform into a milky cleanser. Alternatively, you use it as a mask, leaving a small layer on dry skin for 10 minutes before adding water to rinse. The formula nourishes skin with sunflower seed oil, viola tricolor extract, and chamomile flower extracts, leaving your skin feeling clean, soft, and refreshed.
