Weleda Sponsors The GreenShows Eco Fashion Week
To me, Weleda is more than just a skin care company. It’s also a lifestyle. It’s about treading lightly. Giving back. Reconnecting. Finding balance. Living naturally. We are Weleda each time we buy organic food, reuse shopping bags, walk instead of drive, plant a flower or care for our skin with purely natural ingredients. It’s in this spirit, in support of the Weleda way of life, that we decided to sponsor The GreenShows Eco Fashion Week, the only event committed to environmentally friendly, ethically sound and fair trade fashion during New York Fashion Week. Over this four-day event, starting on February 14th, 10 eco-minded global designers will...

Serene Scene: Weleda Naturals in January
The Customer Center at Weleda Naturals, in the small village of Wetzgau, Germany, was built in 2006. It’s a small building on one edge of Weleda’s expansive Biodynamic® gardens, with just enough room for our visitor center, a shop, our offices and an organic restaurant, which is normally bustling with people. It is January now, however, so everything is still, peaceful and serene. The garden sleeps under nearly eight inches of snow; our ducks stay in a glass house with a heater; our tour guides are on vacation. In nice weather, when everything is in bloom, we manage sightseeing tours through the gardens, and we also hold seminars and wellness...

A Day in the Weleda Pharmacy
One of the things I love about working at Weleda is that there is always something new to learn. Just this Monday, for example, our chief pharmacist, Petra, invited me and my colleagues to stop by the compounding pharmacy inside our headquarters in Palisades, NY. It was the perfect opportunity for us to learn what Petra and her team do all day in their white coats and hair nets, surrounded by glass bottles and crazy contraptions only a mad scientist could love. What amazes me is the contrast between the stark white, sterile environment of the pharmacy and its raison d'être: to make medicines that heal people and make them feel better. Petra told us...

Could You be the Next Face of
Weleda is not about us; it’s about you—it’s about “we.” With that in mind, it seemed only natural to look for our next we magazine cover model from among all of you. The model for our last issue, Samira, was a friend of Marko’s, our COO. She was born in Iran (home of the pomegranate). She now lives in Jersey City, NJ, and enjoys eating pomegranates with her husband. With her timeless beauty and natural radiance, she was the perfect person for that cover. The search is now on for the face of our spring 2010 issue! Our “You Could Be we” contest launched on December 1, and we’ve already received so many wonderful entries that we can’t help but share a...

Better Late Than Never
According to the powers that be in our Communications Department, this blog is way overdue. The reason for my tardiness is, well—work! I know this sounds shocking to the digitally inclined, since social media is supposed to bring us closer, and in our case, bring Weleda closer to you. So what was this “work thing” that kept me from my blogging duties? At Weleda, this is the time of year when we prepare our budgets for the next year. The financial crisis has largely defined 2009, and while the jury is still out on whether we have indeed made it through the worst, our industry has certainly not been spared by the economic downturn. Many natural foods...

What's Happening at Weleda
What are we currently doing at Weleda’s North American headquarters? I’m sure at least some of you would like to know what’s going on behind the white walls of our beautiful office in Palisades, New York. Everybody is working really hard on getting our newest products on store shelves before October 5th. On that Monday, we will launch three brand new products, which I’m sure will really excite our friends and customers! We’ll spread the news soon… In the meantime we are caught in the annual planning ritual: since Weleda North America is a 100% subsidiary of the Weleda Group in Switzerland, we have to make sure that our ideas, needs and plans are well...
