Best of Social Media: April
This month we had a contest on Facebook where we asked you—our fans and community—to tell us how you planned to nurture the earth in celebration of Earth Day. Here are some of our favorite posts! Julie Kenny  For birthdays, I`m going to give my family and friends the gift of saving the earth...a donation to their favorite environmental group, foundation, or organization. Jennifer McBride  From now on when I walk the neighborhood with my son, we are going to pick up trash along the way. I am also going to try my best to not use non-biodegradable disposable items and make an effort to use more reusable items. Nicky Russell  I’m going to A) Recycle as...

Behind the Scenes of the
We Magazine’s Spring/Summer 2010 Cover Shoot We wanted to share with you the video that was made during our latest “we” magazine cover shoot, featuring our “You Could be we” contest winner, Brighid Kennedy! Brighid, who hails from the Pacific Northwest, came to New York for our shoot in March and truly graced us with her beautiful warm smile (courtesy of Salt Toothpaste, one of her favorite Weleda products!) and her good nature. While on the set, she took a break to tell us what keeps her glowing. “I love using Weleda products because they are all natural, so my skin not only feels good afterward, but I feel good knowing the products are...

Spring Clean Your Beauty Routine
It’s the time of year to draw back your curtains, throw open the windows, let the fresh air in, and … get out the mop for the annual spring clean we all know so well. Although at Weleda, we don’t care so much about whether your baseboards are sparkling or your pillows are fluffed. What matters to us is whether your beauty cabinet is clean and healthy for you—meaning free of conventional personal care products that contain potentially toxic chemical ingredients. Mounting evidence shows that many of these substances, including triclosan, phthalates and parabens, can alter our bodies’ healthy functioning and seep into the environment. It’s the potential...

Earth Day, Every Day
A very happy and beautiful EARTH DAY to you! While it’s important to take a day to celebrate the earth and remind ourselves to be good to the planet, it’s even more important that we continue our efforts every day of the year. We strive to do that here at Weleda. Our company is inherently connected to the earth, founded on the belief that our body, soul and spirit are intrinsically linked to our world, and we try to keep that in mind and honor the earth however and whenever we can. We know that we would never be able to bring you such wonderful products if it weren’t for the beauty and power of nature, so it’s especially important to us that we...

All Aglow for Spring
Spring brings brighter days, but alas, it doesn’t always brighten your complexion, at least not right away. Sometimes your skin needs a little help to get its glow back, and a facial can do the trick. I recently chatted with Patricia, one of our estheticians at the Weleda Spa in Palisades, NY, to find out more about why this time of year is a great time for a facial. She started by telling me why facials are beneficial in general, regardless of whether it’s January or June. “Facials deeply moisturize, cleanse, balance, exfoliate and revitalize,” she said. “The results you get with a facial are very hard to achieve at home. They keep your skin healthy,...

The New Issue of 'we' is Here!
Just in time for Earth day and a fresh spring awakening, we are thrilled to bring you the spring-summer 2010 issue of we, the Weleda lifestyle magazine. On the cover is our “you could be we” cover model contest winner, Brighid Kennedy. She was chosen from almost 100 entries, and the decision was not an easy one! Back in December, we asked you—our readers— to submit a photo and 150 words showing and telling us why you should be the face of “we.” Our email box quickly filled with the most inspiring and beautiful photos and words. You made us laugh. You brought us to tears. You lit up our faces with smiles. In the end, we had to pick just one, but in our...
