Reasons to love the line: Using only all-natural ingredients that are grown in their own biodynamic gardens – talk about a green thumb! – these products are free of preservatives and pesticides. The company practices fair trade partnerships with farmers in developing countries and supports biodynamic agriculture around the globe. And this year, in celebration of it’s 90th birthday, Weleda has donated $25,000 to Conservation International.

Try this: The cult fave, Skin Food, is a deep penetrating moisturizer that’s great for tackling dry hands and elbows. Extracts of chamomile and viola work to both calm and soothe your irritated, rough spots – it is February after all. And with no synthetic ingredients like fragrance or colouring, it’s an ideal cream for sensitive skin.
