100 years logo
With great courage and commitment, the founders of Weleda dared to break new ground 100 years ago. They knew of the deep connection between people and nature. Since 1921, at Weleda we have been developing certified natural skincare and anthroposophic medicine based on this understanding. Weleda has been a pioneer of sustainability right from the start. As much as we take, we try to give back. From our biodynamic medicinal plant gardens, to our sustainable and respectful supply chains, and the responsible use of resources – we are striving to make the world a better place. Sustainability and our respect for people and nature are part of our roots and our future.

By supporting Weleda, together, we take action for soil health.


Our Story

Weleda was founded at a time of change. People wanted a better future; revolutionary ideas were in the air. Whether in politics, the sciences or business, pioneers everywhere were looking for new and better ways. It was at this time, Weleda's history started with a hospital, a pharmaceutical laboratory and a medicinal plant garden. The philosopher Rudolf Steiner, together with the physician Ita Wegman and the chemist Oskar Schmiedel, developed the first pharmaceutical formulations according to an understanding that underpins Weleda’s product philosophy to this day: that life processes in the human body and in nature are in close relationship with each other.


For us, being a sustainable business means maintaining the health of people and nature for future generations. Only to take what can grow back. We understand we are a part of nature and must work in harmony with it. Only in this way can we face global challenges such as climate change and the loss of biodiversity. We are working to improve our climate balance and developing more sustainable packaging. Since 1921 we have been committed to acting responsibly - socially, economically and ecologically. This includes meeting the strict criteria laid out by the Union for Ethical BioTrade (UEBT).
