Weleda has been manufacturing health care products and cruelty-free skincare and bodycare products since 1921. Behind Weleda's comprehensive range of natural health products lies an important ethos concerning the way in which we take care of our health, and how we should relate to the world around us. Weleda grow their own plants and herbs to ensure the very finest quality ingredients, free from artificial fertilisers, pesticides, herbicides and toxins. Ingredients are selected for their natural therapeutic properties. All Weleda packaging is made from recycled materials. Weleda promises: No synthetic preservatives, No synthetic fragrances, No synthetic chemicals, No synthetic anything, No animal cruelty.
Weleda began with a hospital and a pharmaceutical laboratory – founded by a Dutch doctor, an Austrian philosopher and a chemist and pharmacist from Munich. 90 years on, Weleda is the world leader in the manufacture of holistic cosmetics and anthroposophic medicines. Weleda operates the largest biodynamic medicinal plant garden in Europe at a site in Germany. Weleda's commitment to quality and environmentally friendly business has been a constant throughout the years. Sustainability underpins everything Weleda does, from naturally grown raw materials, processing and packaging. Restoring and maintaining good health and promoting sustainable development form part of Weleda's personal concept of business.
Weleda aims to use only the purest wild-crafted, organically and biodynamically cultivated ingredients. Toxins, additives and raw materials from mineral oils simply won’t do. But natural isn't enough, Weleda ingredients have to be effective too. They have to work with your body's own ability to heal, restore wellbeing and impart radiance. So to ensure ingredients maintain their innate potency, Weleda harvests them quickly, then process them as little as possible, taking excellent care of them along the way. Weleda believes unwaveringly in cultivating beauty for all creatures, so Weleda skin care products or their ingredients are not tested on animals and neither do their suppliers. Period. No asterisk, no small print.
