Cruelty-Free Cosmetics

For nearly a century Weleda has proudly produced cruelty-free personal care products.

Weleda’s face, baby, body, hair and oral care products are certified natural by the European organization NATRUE.

NATRUE requires that no personal care products be tested on animals and enforces this prohibition.  Since 2004, animal testing has been prohibited by the European Union.


This legislation is binding on Weleda, as our products are manufactured and sold there. Since 2013, the European Union has also banned the sale and use of ingredients that are animal tested.

While animal testing is not allowed, the European Union Cosmetics Directive requires that every product on the market is safe to use. The manufacturer is responsible for the testing and safety of every new product. The safety of cosmetics is the goal of the European Union’s cosmetics legislation.

As a manufacturer of personal care, certified natural by NATRUE, with high ethical standards, Weleda takes its responsibility extremely seriously. We will continue this endeavor to avoid animal testing as we have done since 1921.
