Since 1921, Weleda has pioneered the use of wild-crafted (from wild plants), organic and biodynamic farming principles in our NATRUE-certified natural personal care products whenever possible to promote harmony and health. We believe the closer we are to nature, the more our bodies work in harmony. Our finest ingredients are cultivated by the loving hands of dedicated farmers throughout the world. We create premier, nourishing personal care that captures the power and potency of nature. When you care for your skin with our plant-rich preparations, you experience a vitality that only nature can bring.
All of our personal care products are certified natural by NATRUE and are preserved using a touch of grain alcohol, essential oils and nourishing plant extracts to maintain the life of our products. Our unique and recyclable packaging protects each formulation from light and air, helping to prevent oxidation. With our effective preservation techniques, our products needn’t be refrigerated. However, their freshness information is on packaging.
Our products are the color of the essential plant extracts that are used in the formula. All formulas are fragranced with those same essential oils and plant extracts. We do not use any synthetic colors or fragrances.
We use only nourishing essential oils and plant extracts. All Weleda personal care products are certified natural by NATRUE, FREE of synthetic preservatives, fragrances, colorants and raw materials derived from mineral oils, as well as genetically modified organisms (GMO's). Our products are instead FULL of the highest quality plant extracts for your body.
Recognized as a holistic, ecological, and ethical farming system, biodynamic agriculture includes gardening, food and nutrition, as well. The teachings of biodynamically-centered agriculture have been practiced worldwide for nearly a century. The basic idea is that the farm itself is a living organism—a self-sustaining system that creates and sustains life, and supports and heals itself. If it sounds like the principles Dr. Rudolf Steiner applied to how the skin functions, it is because it is the same concept of self-healing and growth.
At Weleda, we view the earth as an interconnected living organism. Plants, animals and human beings have an inherent and beautiful relationship with one another and their surroundings.
The International Nomenclature for Cosmetic Ingredients (INCI) is the system we use for labeling our ingredients. The multilingual and multinational labeling requirements of the European Union require a full declaration of ingredients on personal care packaging. This labeling standard denotes all ingredients according to their Latin (Chemical / Scientific) designation as specified by the regulatory board. All companies selling personal care products in Europe, and recently, Canada, are required by law to list their ingredients according to INCI regulations.
All ingredients are listed by their quantity of presence—greatest to least—in the product. Due to its full ingredient disclosure policy, the INCI standards strive to help you, the consumer, make informed and healthy purchases, helping you avoid any ingredients to which you may be allergic.
Weleda uses a “raw grain alcohol,” a naturally-fermented plant-based sugar that helps preserve our ingredients and helps our products stay gluten-free. This alcohol is not drying, in fact, it is used to hold and stabilize our botanical tinctures and extracts. When creating traditional remedies, -fermented alcohols were used to release the life-force of the plants into the compounds.
Our alcohol is denatured by the essential oils in the formulas. Additionally, our products are gently heated which further diminishes any drying aspect of alcohol in the emulsified product.
Plants oils, derived from seeds, nuts and fruits, gently care for and nourish your skin. Unlike petroleum-based mineral oils, plant oils are believed to help support and make your skin feel balanced.
Glycerin is a threefold-alcohol found in every fat. We use glycerin derived from the coconut or palm kernel oil. This ingredient is produced through the saponification process of plant oil and soap. It regulates the absorption and release of water, leaving skin feeling softer and smoother.
Lanolin is a wax derived from the wool of sheep. The process of extracting this wool does not harm the sheep in any way, as the shearing of wool is a necessary process. It is cleaned to remove any possible pesticide residue. This beneficial ingredient contains fats that give it an affinity to the skin, making it an ideal moisturizer. We use lanolin to nourish and moisturize the skin.
Weleda does not do any animal testing in the manufacture, development or quality control of its natural cosmetics, nor does it commission such testing. The company is fundamentally opposed to the use of animal testing. Weleda’s personal care products are certified natural by the European organization NATRUE, which requires and enforces that no cosmetics be tested on animals.
However, product safety is paramount. Weleda uses raw materials that have been used for many years, so their tolerability is well documented. Before introducing new products to the market, Weleda carries out extensive in-use studies on volunteer subjects. The formulas are subject to toxicological testing to ensure their safety, tolerability and efficacy.
Weleda consistently works to bring consumers the highest quality and safest products, formulated with the finest ingredients. Some people have a digestive intolerance to gluten, a protein that occurs in wheat and other grains. It is unlikely for a person with gluten intolerance to have a reaction to a skincare product, since gluten can only be absorbed through the gastrointestinal tract. However, some people do have wheat allergies that may cause them to have skin sensitivities. Many Weleda personal care products contain alcohol derived from wheat, and some products contain wheat germ oil. We heat and distill our alcohol and filter our wheat germ oil to remove allergy-causing proteins, but we cannot guarantee that all of the residues are removed. If you have gluten intolerance or wheat allergies, we recommend that you consult with your medical practitioner before using any of our products containing alcohol, malt extract or wheat germ oil, as indicated on the ingredient label.

Calendula, also known as Marigold, is renowned for its comforting, soothing calming properties. The gentle nourishing and warming properties of this flower make it ideal for use on babies, children and all delicate and sensitive skin types.
Comforting Body Lotion can also be used as a convenient daily care moisturizer. It is quickly-absorbed and helps keep the skin feeling soft and supple. Nourishing Body Cream may also be used on very dry and chapped skin such as the hands and elbows.
Weleda Nourishing Face Cream may be used on the face as a gently soothing moisturizer. Apply only as much as the skin can fully absorb and stroke gently into the skin.

The best time to use our body oils is when the skin is still moist - ideally, after a bath or shower. When the skin is damp, it is able to draw in more of the skin-softening benefits and nourishment encapsulated within. Body oils may be used as regular, everyday body moisturizers or for a massage.
We use only the finest oils that are easily absorbed by the skin, such as sesame seed, olive fruit, jojoba and sweet almond oils. Our body oils leave your skin feeling soft and rejuvenated.
Our body oils are a great solution for very dry skin. Our Pampering Body & Beauty Oil and Hydrating Body & Beauty Oil are especially good due to their nourishing properties. The lasting quality of body oils helps maintain the skin’s moisture levels and feeling of suppleness between applications. While body lotions are also moisturizing, they evaporate faster because they contain water. Thus, when the skin is extremely dry, we suggest using one of our body oils to keep moisture in. For optimal hydration of dry skin on the body and face, we recommend Skin Food.
All our oils may be used for any kind of massage: foot massage, hand massage, neck massage, a relaxing massage or a sports massage. Our Muscle Massage Oil is our best-selling body oil for tired muscles. We also suggest Relaxing Body & Beauty Oil for a calming massage before bedtime. All our body oils are rich in plant oils.
We do not add fluoride to our oral care products. Fluoride is naturally available through mineral water and other sources. Thus, additional quantities are often not needed. However, only your health care practitioner can determine if extra fluoride is necessary.

Yes. Our hair care line was developed using Weleda’s deep understanding of how ingredients support beauty and wellness. We use mild, coconut-based surfactants for gentle cleansing so hair looks nourished and shiny. As with all of our products, our hair care is free of heavy silicones, harsh sulfates and synthetic preservatives and fragrances. They are also all certified natural by the Europe’s leading natural certifier, NATRUE.
Our packaging is designed to protect and preserve both the product formulation and the environment. We design our unique packaging for easy use and durability, using three types of materials: Glass, food grade PET and PE/PP (plastic) and aluminum tubes with a protective coating.
Glass and aluminum tubes are used to package some of our premier formulations due to the fine ingredient composition of the products. Essential oils, are “living,” making them extremely volatile. Both glass and aluminum are nonreactive with the formulations, eliminating oxygenation, oxidization or degeneration.
We use recyclable and food grade PET and PE/PP plastic to package some of our products, such as baby products, body lotions and body washes to ensure safe and easy use of these products.
The best way to store our products is away from direct sunlight in a cool, dry environment. It is important that all products be firmly sealed after each use. We recommend that you store the products this way to protect the nature of the formulations.
Our personal care products have an average shelf life of 2-1/2 years. Please always see our product packaging for individual product information and expiration dates.
