After more than 90 years the vision is still contemporary
Weleda was founded in 1921 by the Austrian philosopher and natural scientist,
Rudolf Steiner, Dutch doctor Ita Wegman and Oskar Schmiedel, a chemist and
pharmacist from Munich in Germany. The company is still based on the philosophic
ideology and high values of anthroposophy.
A man with a vision
The spiritual and philosophical founder of Weleda.
She put theory into practice
A clear-sighted woman with a strong vision of reform in medical treatment.
How it began
It all began with a hospital and a pharmaceutical laboratory.
Director of Weleda for 35 years
The initiator of the production of anthroposophic pharmaceuticals and cosmetics.
Anthroposophy is a spiritual world view with European roots, now established all over the world. It was named and formulated by Weleda’s founder Rudolf Steiner, who translated the name to mean ‘the wisdom of man’.
By contrast to some present-day practice in academic and university circles, Steiner used the term to refer to the investigation of the spiritual realm through scientific and spiritual experience, and it was this to which he devoted his work. Steiner’s anthroposophy takes its starting point from exact scientific thinking, with equally exact research methods, initially limited to the world of matter, then extended to the spiritual through science.
We as a company have imbued these values through all our operations – in our bio-dynamic farming, fair treatment of staff and stakeholders, sustainable manufacturing processes of skin care and medicinal products. We continue to develop in many countries through committed people who appreciate our ethos, and we are now the world’s leading manufacturer of holistic, natural, organic skin care and medicines for anthroposophic therapy.
