Founded in 1921 by people who strived for a better future, Weleda began its journey with sustainability at its roots, growing organic skincare ingredients from the plant garden at its pharmaceutical laboratory. Fast-forward to today and Weleda is now the world-leading manufacturer of certified natural skincare, creating synergistic products inspired by Anthroposophic medicine – a movement designed to reconnect your body with its natural rhythms.

Recognising the harmonious connection between the natural world and the human body, Weleda use precious natural plant oils, natural extracts, and essential oils in their skincare, wanting people who use their products to feel healthy and comfortable in their own skin.
