Based on the Anthroposophic teachings of Rudolph Steiner, Weleda products are organic, sustainable and in many cases, biodynamic. They are all based on natural, plant-based ingredients and are presented in simple, recyclable packaging. There are no chemicals in the products so are particularly recommended for those with chemical sensitivities. Many people use them for babies and children, but we should all consider reducing our chemical load. Everything applied to the skin is absorbed.
