Tones, firms and tackles cellulite. Encourages elimination processes, flushes out toxins and restores skins radiance.
It is mainly women who are affected by cellulite. Women's elastic connective tissue, which surrounds the warming and protective fat cells of the subcutaneous (innermost) layer of skin, is substantially softer and looser than that of men. If the tension of these elastic fibres is reduced increased fat is stored in the cells of the subcutaneous layer. These cells can increase to ten times their original size and over time push through the weak connective tissue to the surface of the skin. The result is orange- peel skin, the typical picture of cellulite.
Weleda Birch Cellulite Oil is a unique combination of plant extracts and natural plant oils and which visibly improves the skin's texture and smoothness by stimulating the body's own regulating and regenerating processes. Weleda Birch Cellulite Oil is pleasantly light and soaks into the skin without leaving an oily residue.
Extract of young organic Birch leaves, organic Rosemary and Ruscus, supports healthy, radiant, looking skin. Revitalising Apricot Kernel oil, moisturising organic Jojoba oil and vitamin rich Wheatgerm oil help to enliven the skin's appearance. Natural essential oils support the toning effects of the other plant extracts, leaving the skin feeling and looking firm and supple.

Reviews for Weleda Birch Cellulite Oil 100ml
I read a lot of reviews about this and the combination of the Birch Juice too so I got both before my first bikini outing this holiday! I love this stuff, I really like the smell, its refreshing but natural and soaks well into the skin. It has also made a difference to the tone and appearance of my skin, particularly the puffiness. I'm a convert. I have used many body oils but this has been the best and I will try other Weleda oils as a result. Really great value too!
