Our Heritage

Weleda believes that when we are in balance, our energy, vitality and beauty shine. We craft each product with plant and flower-sourced ingredients orchestrated to realize nature’s restorative effects. It started with Dr. Rudolf Steiner, a philosopher and scientist. He realized that the human body was a part of nature. 

Weleda Rudolf Steiner

Steiner's belief: reconnecting with the natural world is the best way to bring ourselves back into balance.

Steiner collaborated with one of the first women physicians in Europe, Dr. Ita Wegman, and a team of scientists. In 1921, they created the first synergistic products orchestrated to reconnect the body with its natural rhythms.

Weleda was delivering glowing, healthy-looking skin and wellbeing in Switzerland, then Germany and eventually North America.

For the most active ingredients, they planted the first biodynamic gardens, biodynamic agriculture means that farming, seed production and landscape maintenance follow the rhythms of nature and the earth.

Today, Weleda has partnerships and offices around the globe.


Despite our success, Weleda is a people-and-planet over profits brand. We still cultivate our own biodynamic gardens and work in fair trade agreements with small farmers and gardeners to source the best raw materials.


We still strive to make the best non-toxic, cruelty-free, paraben-free, GMO-free, phthalates-free and synthetic fragrance-free products available in the marketplace.

Each of our face, baby, body, hair and oral care products are certified natural by NATRUE.

NATRUE is Europe’s leading natural certifier. As we spread our message of health, beauty and environmental responsibility around the world, we always put you and your wellbeing first.
