Weleda was founded by humanitarian and philosopher Rudolf Steiner in the 1920s. He also developed the principles of biodynamic farming and anthroposophical medicine, and today many of these principles are still used to create Weleda products.
Weleda strives to source only the finest ingredients from biodynamic, organic and wild crafted suppliers. They don’t just buy organic ingredients on the open market, they work in partnership with growers to ensure they know where the ingredients are grown, what the soil is like, and how and when the plants are harvested, distilled or processed. It’s their attention to detail that ensures maximum vitality and potency of the ingredients in their products.
It’s for these reasons that Weleda is certified by NATURE, which has the highest international criteria for natural and organic finished products, not just the ingredients.
Their focus is not only on creating exquisite natural and organic products, but to do so in a way that is ethically, socially and environmentally responsible. For these reasons, the Union for Ethical BioTrade (UEBT) accredited Weleda as a member. Not only do they demand fair trade, but they work to ensure everyone and everything along the entire growing, harvesting and manufacturing process is treated fairly, with care and respect.
