Weleda’s natural cosmetics and medicinal products are the result of great care and quality selection, from the purchase of raw materials through to the manufacturing, bottling and delivery of the finished products.
Our quality is based on stringent criteria, with numerous guidelines for sustainable product development, raw materials, origin, production and packaging as well as a commitment to never add artificial preservatives, synthetic fragrances, GMO's and to never test on animals.
The natural raw materials for Weleda products are processed in selective and sensitive ways so that the substances and active ingredients can fully develop their effects. A holistic, comprehensive understanding of the nature of humans – formed equally of body, soul and spirit – leads to a broad interest in how substances relate to each other in anthroposophy.
This in turn leads to our enhanced definition of quality, which results in products that are deeply and fully active, giving a wonderful feeling of comfort when used. It’s our priority to offer the best quality to our consumers, because we believe that only carefully selected and processed natural substances can aid the body in its numerous delicately-balanced functions.
The continuous development of scientific testing methods is also an important
part of quality assurance. In the formulation and production of our cosmetics,
products are always made without synthetic dyes and fragrances, preservatives
and genetically modified organisms, silicones, paraffin, other petroleum
products and synthetic fats. Wherever possible we use raw materials from
certified organic or biodynamic farming and controlled wild collection. Animal
testing is prohibited both in the production and in development stages and we
only ever fragrance our products with natural essential oils. Weleda products
are also made in such a way that synthetic or ‘nature-identical’ preservatives
are not required.
The Weleda motto ‘in harmony with nature and the human being’ is an important
guiding principle thr oughout the entire manufacturing chain of all natural
cosmetics and medicinal products. Sourcing, packaging materials and finished
products all meet numerous requirements including regulatory compliance, GMP
(good manufacturing practice) compliance, compliance with the pharmacopoeias and
compliance with specific national legal regulations in the countries of
manufacture and sale. We put strong emphasis on the material and ecological
quality of our raw materials as well as on the social quality of our trading
At the very core of Weleda’s mission is the desire to heal. To restore the body’s own natural balance and promote healthy living. When Weleda began in 1921 the very first Weleda medicines were created, based on the principles of anthroposophy, which views healing as a process to bring mind, body and soul into balance with itself and its environment.
Today Weleda produces a range of medicines where we are dedicated to producing products of the highest quality. Weleda is licensed and audited yearly by the Ministry of Health (Medsafe) under 21st century regulations. Medsafe ensures that all medicines available to consumers are acceptably safe. Weleda New Zealand also complies with Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) Pharmaceutical standards. GMP ensures that products are consistently produced and controlled according to quality standards.
To ensure maximum vitality and potency, we grow our own herbs to the highest Biodynamic standards, or source the finest ingredients from elsewhere in New Zealand. For those ingredients we can’t grow ourselves or source within New Zealand, we source from sustainably cultivated, fair-trade partnerships worldwide.
Medicinal plant gardens have been an essential part of the corporate business culture at Weleda since its beginnings in 1921.
From ingredient to product
Whether distilling, extracting or exponentiation: through the correct processing systems, the raw materials that we use become suitable for human needs.
Sow before you reap
Around 3/4 of our plant ingredients come from organic farming or certified wild collection. Naturally, we can't grow all plants ourselves.
