Make the soothing power of nature suitable to human needs
We process approximately 1,000 natural substances into cosmetics and medicinal products. But natural isn’t enough for us—our ingredients have to be effective too. They have to work with your body’s own ability to heal, to restore well-being and impart internal and whole-body radiance.
To ensure our ingredients keep their innate potency, we harvest quickly and process them as little as possible, taking excellent care of them along the way. Weleda’s pharmaceutical knowledge and experience determines which production method is appropriate in each case.
First of all, we ‘potentise’ all of our liquids by hand, gently agitating
them in a specific motion. (You can imagine this by pretending you are holding a
jar, and shake it gently lengthways in a figure eight). In all our heat and
stirring processes, the possible impact of extraneous energy sources is kept to
a minimum, with wi-fi and electromagnetic radiation measured, minimised and
fully screened in sensitive processing areas.
Furthermore, in anthroposophic medicine, the relationship between metal and
planetary forces, between microcosm and macrocosm also plays an important role.
So we choose the times of exponentiation by following a calendar – for example,
silver exponentiation would never take place during the waning moon. We use
distilled water for all exponentiation, which we consider rejuvenating, as it
has the quality of rainwater.
For thermal processes, such as distillation, valuable essential oils are
extracted – for example from lavender blossoms – with the help of water vapour.
The resulting natural fragrances are used for perfuming various Weleda
cosmetics. Maceration is another important process at Weleda. In this process
freshly cut calendula plants are crushed and mixed with alcohol and water. Two
weeks later, the mixture is pressed and filtered: the result is the calendula
tincture, a valuable plant extract.
All these processes and processing steps have one thing in common – they
create a bridge between the natural state of the ingredient and humans and make
accessible to us what grows in nature, benefiting from the natural nurturing and
healing qualities of the ingredient.
And because we believe unwaveringly in cultivating beauty for all creatures,
we do not test our skin care products or their ingredients on animals, and
neither do our suppliers.
Because of these sustainable production methods and the care with which we use natural resources, Weleda has earned certification from NATRUE, an international not-for-profit organisation that aims to provide guidance and reassurance to consumers around the world by offering stringent and detailed standards for certification. We are proud to be a founding member of NATRUE.
Medicinal plant gardens have been an essential part of the corporate business culture at Weleda since its beginnings in 1921.Learn more about our gardens worldwide.
Quality from start to finish
Weleda’s natural cosmetics stand for great care and quality, guaranteed from the purchasing of raw materials through to the production, bottling and delivery of the finished products.
Sow before you reap
Around three-quarters of our plant ingredients come from organic or biodynamic farming and from certified wild collection. Naturally, we can't grow all plants ourselves.
NATRUE and more
Natural cosmetics are not always natural cosmetics. NATRUE is the first internationally recognised quality seal for organic and natural cosmetics creating clarity in the label ‘jungle’.
