Weleda was founded by humanitarian and philosopher Rudolf Steiner in the 1920s. He also developed the principles of biodynamic farming and anthroposophical medicine, and today many of these principles are still used to create Weleda products. Weleda strives to source only the finest ingredients from biodynamic, organic and wild crafted suppliers. They don’t just buy organic ingredients on the open market, they work in partnership with growers to ensure they know where the ingredients are grown, what the soil is like, and how and when the plants are harvested, distilled or processed. It’s their attention to detail that ensures maximum vitality and potency of the ingredients in the Weleda products. It’s for these reasons that Weleda is certified by NATRUE, which has the highest international criteria for natural and organic finished products, not just the ingredients.
