WE STAND BY OUR ROOTS AND VALUES
HISTORY AND FOUNDATION
A comprehensive knowledge of people and nature was Rudolf Steiner's development goal. He called the study of the many different interrelationships in our world anthroposophy, the wisdom of humankind. This paved the way for anthroposophic medicine and holistic natural cosmetics. A pharmaceutical laboratory was founded in 1921 to concentrate on these fields. It was given the name of a Germanic healer priestess: Weleda.
What keeps people healthy? This question forms the basis for developing our pharmaceutical and natural cosmetic products. Weleda researches and uses the powers of nature to help people lead a healthy and balanced life.
We only use selected raw materials in the production of our care products and pharmaceuticals, which are sourced from biodynamic cultivation or certified wild sources wherever possible. We carefully monitor every step in production, from cultivation through to harvesting and processing. Therefore, we only use the best - and you can tell. With no added synthetic fragrances, dyes or preservatives, our care products achieve an outstanding level of quality. Their efficacy and product quality has been recognised through many different awards and prizes.
At Weleda, the focus is on people. This also applies to our approximately 1,900 employees on five continents and in over 50 countries. We place great value on vocational and advanced training. There are also numerous provisions aimed at maintaining a balance between work and family. For example, company-run childcare facilities, where employees can leave their children while they work, knowing that they will be well cared for.
IN HARMONY WITH NATURE AND THE HUMAN BEING.
Weleda has represented sustainability since 1921. Since its founding, our company has placed great importance on ecological, social and economic responsibility:
ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY SOURCING AND PROCESSING FOR RAW MATERIALS.
Weleda uses around 1,000 natural raw materials for its products. Roses and pomegranates from Turkey, iris and argan oil from Morocco, sesame oil from Mexico and lemons from Argentina and Italy are just a few examples. All around the world, Weleda promotes biodiversity and supports bio-certified and socially sustainable cultivation projects.
When sourcing raw materials, Weleda works together with local partners around the world - for example small-scale farming initiatives. Fair payment and good training are particularly important to us as part of this.
The company's own biodynamic cultivation of medicinal plants has a long tradition. In addition to the gardens in Switzerland and France, Schwäbisch Gmünd in Germany is primarily the central production site for plant extracts. Here, in the largest medicinal plant garden in Europe, around 260 species are cultivated, including calendula and euphrasia. CLIMATE NEUTRALITY We aim for CO2-neutral transport of goods and post. The conversion to renewable energies, environmentally friendly construction and compensation projects - for example, with the Dutch composting company Soil&More - contribute towards reducing greenhouse emissions and, therfore, towards optimising our ecological footprint.
THERE ARE 90 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE IN OUR PRODUCTS.
We have placed great value on acting in harmony with nature and the human being since 1921. We thus combine our anthroposophical knowledge of plants and people with well-founded pharmaceutical knowledge. This is a philosophy that has created effective care and pharmaceutical products for 90 years, products that are ideally tailored to individual requirements - for general well-being and balance between body and soul. Our range is as varied as nature itself. The Weleda facial-care range provides skin with stimuli that are optimally tailored to specific skin requirements. Our nutrient-rich body-care products - from fragrant oils to creamy lotions - ensure well-being from head to toe. Deodorants and dental-care products have been added to our product range, as well as a care range for mothers and children - ideal products for pregnancy and breastfeeding.
