Official Stockist of Weleda
The Weleda story began in 1920, when philosopher Rudolf Steiner began his exploration of biodynamic farming and anthroposophical medicine. Weleda is committed to using only the finest biodynamic, organic, and wildcrafted ingredients in its product lines. The brand works with organic growers to ensure the purity of these ingredients.
The focus on natural and organic ingredients and finished products has earned Weleda the NATRUE certification. Weleda's ethically, socially, and environmentally responsible processing and fair trade practices have earned accreditation by the Union for Ethical BioTrade.
Weleda has developed eco-friendly product lines to gently cleanse and care for all skin and hair types: shampoos, shower gels, shaving needs, deodorants, and moisturisers. The brand's expansive line of cleansers, toners, lotions, serums, masks, and shaving products includes items for sensitive, mature, and normal/combination skin.
Additionally, Weleda offers products to help keep baby comfortable and happy during bath-time, nappy changes, and teething. New mothers will appreciate Weleda’s line of products for stretch marks and nipple care.
Weleda has always adhered to high ethical standards, creating organic products using raw, natural, and environmentally friendly ingredients. The company does not carry out or commission any animal testing in the manufacture, development, or quality control of its products.
The biodynamic process incorporates an ethical, spiritual, and ecological approach to agriculture that goes beyond organic. Farmers that grow for Weleda use the moon, sun, and planets to guide their planting and harvesting cycles. This method of farming improves the soil's fertility with every planting.
Only natural sprays made from silica, manure, and a compost of herbs are applied to bring life to the soil. Weleda's 135 acres of biodynamic gardens has never been touched by any chemicals or pesticides.
All Weleda skincare products are suitable for vegetarians. Weleda's select vegan products do not contain any raw materials derived from animals, but in the manufacturing process, contact with animal products cannot be ruled out entirely. Some of the vegan products from Weleda are Almond Soothing Cleansing Lotion, Gentle Cleansing Milk, Sage Deodorant, Birch Cellulite Oil, and Oat Replenishing haircare products.
Fragrance is very important to Weleda. Scents are emotional; they can calm, balance, stimulate, or brighten a mood, and their appeal may change as we age. For this reason, Weleda has established a Fragrance Panel of specially trained members to represent the target group for a particular product line.
When developing fragrances, Weleda takes an aromatherapeutic approach and considers the effects that essential oils have on the skin. For example, depending on the product, the essential oil ingredient may have a warming, cooling, or anti-inflammatory effect.
