This light, fragrance-free eye cream is suggested for use both day and night.
Q. What ages skin?
When skin ages cell division is slower and the Epidermis gets thinner. The skin metabolism gets slower, sweats less, and loses oils and proteins. Collagen and elastin, two protein fibres which give the skin its elasticity and resilience begin to loose elasticity and the ability to hold water, causing skin to become dry.
As we age, skin becomes more easily damaged, light sensitive, with more visible pigmentation. Lines and wrinkles from laughter and other habitual facial expressions deepen.
Skin ages for two reasons: environmental stress, (eg sun damage or photo-aging), and intrinsic aging, where protein fibres are naturally replaced at a slower rate.
We can’t stop fibre replacement slowing down, but we can help prevent the damage from environmental stress.
Q. What is glycerin and why do you use it?
Glycerin is a threefold alcohol found in every fat. We use glycerin derived from rapeseed oil. This ingredient is produced through the saponification process of vegetable oil and soap. It regulates the absorption and release of water, softening and smoothing the skin.
Q. Why do some of your skin care and medicine products contain alcohol?
In homoeopathic medicines and tinctures, alcohol is traditionally used to draw out the vital life forces of a plant to create a botanical extract in a specific concentration. Alcohol is also used as a natural preservative in our formulations. We use organic grain alcohol, which is naturally derived from fermented plant sugars. We do not use Methyl or Propyl alcohol—also known as rubbing alcohol.
Q. Why do you use alcohol in your skin care products?
We use organic grain alcohol in many of our Weleda creams, lotions and cleansers. It is needed to extract the active components of the herbs and other plants used in products. Additionally, alcohol improves the consistency and the stability of products. The stabilising effect is important as we do not use any synthetic preservatives in any Weleda products.
Alcohol has some benefits for the skin; it is a mild disinfectant and is also cooling. The alcohol content in Weleda skincare products does not harm the acid mantle, the skin’s natural oily cover. We use low concentrations of alcohol in our creams, lotions and cleansers and at these low concentrations, alcohol has been shown to be well tolerated on the skin, even on sensitive baby skin.
In line with Weleda’s holistic approach to personal care, our products derive their effect from the sum of their components and not from any individual ingredient. We have performed safety and efficacy tests on all our products to ensure that under normal or reasonably foreseeable conditions the use of our products is safe and will provide the claimed effects.

Q. How do you colour and fragrance your products?
Our products are naturally coloured with the essential plant extracts that make-up each pure formula. All formulas are naturally fragranced with essential oils and plant extracts. We do not use any synthetic colours or fragrances.
Q. Do you use any synthetic ingredients?
We use only natural oils and plant extracts. All Weleda products are FREE of synthetic preservatives, fragrances, colorants and raw materials derived from mineral oils, as well as genetically modified organisms (GMO’s). Our products are instead FULL of the highest quality, pure and natural ingredients for your body.
Q. Are Weleda products cruelty free?
We get asked all the time about animal testing and whether our natural and organic cosmetics are cruelty free. The answer is yes they most certainly are! Weleda has never tested any of its individual ingredients nor finished beauty products on animals. We don’t carry any bunny symbols on our packs because we are a global brand with international packaging, instead we have the NATRUE seal on our products. Animal testing is fundamentally against our and NATRUE’s underlying values and ethics.
