Treat soil, the skin of the Earth, as you would your own skin.

Soil, just like our skin, is a living, breathing eco-system. It is the living skin of our Earth. But, a third of the Earth’s soil is degraded, threatening animal and plant habitats, and increasing greenhouse gas emissions. For over a century, Weleda has been growing the plants used to make our iconic products using soil-friendly methods. We keep soil healthy and make it as biodiverse as possible by working with biodynamic farming principles and collaborating with regenerative farming projects around the world. Our commitment to soil is at the heart of all our ingredient sourcing because it is the key to thriving ecosystems. Without healthy soils, we cannot tackle the crisis facing nature today.


Weleda, in collaboration with DIRT charity and Arizona Muse, is embarking on a mission to Save Earth’s Skin.

"Weleda’s Save Earth’s Skin mission is all about treating soil, like we would our own skin – without harsh chemicals and in a way that demands care. We can all do our bit when it comes treating the Earth with the respect it deserves.”

Arizona Muse - model, environmental activist & founder of DIRT

It starts with us!

In the same way we protect our skin, we can protect the Earth’s skin. Get involved one small action at a time, with these simple tips and tricks:

TIP 1: Look for third party certifications and be aware of Greenwashing

To make sure a product is really delivering against what it’s claiming, look for certifications and third party standards that have independent testing measures. With Weleda, you can feel confident that the products are made in a way that respects the Earth.

TIP 2: If you have a garden or at your local park

Plant a myriad of flowers and allow wild plants to grow. In your garden, by not trimming your lawn too short, you provide habitats for small organisms. Grow crops in bare patches to prevent erosion.

TIP 3: When growing plants choose peat-free compost

Whether you have your own garden, a balcony, indoor plants, or support an urban garden project, compost feeds the soil, keeps it healthy and functional. Ensure the compost you’re using is peat-free.

TIP 4: Be mindful about what you eat and drink

Buying organic and biodynamic food and drink means the farming abstains from the use of chemical pesticides and synthetic mineral fertilizers. This in turn benefits the soil, plants, and animal habitats.

  • Sustainable supply chain certified by UEBT "Sourcing with Respect"

  • By integrating compost more CO2 is bound than emitted

  • Our regenerative farming partnerships will increase from 50 to 60 by 2025

  • Our corporate footprint is carbon neutral (GHG Protocol Scope 1 & 2) at the company level

  • As a B-Corp, we actively work on a model for a sustainable economy

Our skin and soil are quite alike and at Weleda, we believe both are equally worth protecting and caring for.

Did you know?

Did you know?

  • Soil, just like our skin, has a microbiome

  • One teaspoon of soil can hold more organisms than there are people on the planet

  • 50% of CO2 is bound in our soils. They are the largest CO2 reservoirs after the oceans

  • Every minute, 56 acres of arable land is lost globally to drought and desertification

  • It can take up to 2,000 years for ten centimeters of soil to emerge naturally


Together with Arizona Muse, DIRT charity, and The Sustainable Soil Alliance, we embark on a journey to educate about the importance of healthy soil. Weleda will invest an additional 1% of turnover in the preservation of biodiversity, climate protection and soil conservation. In 2022, we will support regenerative agriculture projects with over $400,000.

In Germany, Austria and Switzerland, we support the Swiss Organic Foundation's Soil Fertility Fund, helping farmers to cultivate more than 1 million square meters of land. In Australia, we support the organization Carbon8, which also supports farmers who work in a regenerative way and ensures that CO2 from the atmosphere is bound as carbon in the soil. In France, we help the organization La Sauge to run an ecological community garden in Paris. Further initiatives globally can advance ecological change with our help.
We see soil protection as a common task!
