The GreenShows: Fashion with a Conscience
The GreenShows just wrapped up in New York City, but the buzz they generated is alive and well. From Joann Berman’s rollicking frocks to Samantha Pleet’s youthful jumpers, all 10 fashion labels proved that sustainable fashion is wearable, beautiful and more than a passing fad. The passion these artists show for their work and for the earth is commendable and inspiring. As much as possible, each designer uses organic materials and eco-friendly dyes, eschews leather and suede, produces locally and pays fair wages. Being a part of The GreenShows was a natural fit for Weleda. The conscious use of resources and the responsibility toward our partners,...

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...

Product Spotlight: Euphrasia 3x Eyedrops
During the winter, the cold, dry air takes a toll on my skin and hair, but also on my eyes. They tend to become uncomfortable, dry and irritated this time of year. Indoor heat, which draws all the moisture from the air, is a major culprit; outside, the swirling, biting wind only makes matters worse. Combined with my dust allergies and 10 hours a day in front of a computer, it’s enough to drive me to tears—literally! I’ve found that the best treatment for my red, itchy eyes is a natural, preservative-free moistener that uses homeopathic herbs. Fortunately for me, Weleda has the most amazing one: Euphrasia 3x Homeopathic Eyedrops, made from organic,...

A Vineyard in Balance
Over my New Year’s vacation, I took a trip to Napa Valley, where I toured a certified Biodynamic vineyard called Grgich Hills Estate. It’s tucked away in the middle of the valley. The day I visited the sun was bright, the air was crisp, and the mustard flowers were in full bloom, covering the hills in bright yellow. It was the perfect day for tasting…and touring! Given my background at Weleda, I was excited to learn firsthand how Grgich uses Biodynamic agriculture to grow its grapes. I know the quality of Weleda’s products is unsurpassed because we grow our plant ingredients in our own Biodynamic gardens. So you can bet I had high expectations for...

The winner is ...: a pageant for natural beauty standards
I just returned from The Natural Beauty Summit. Despite what the name suggests, this is not a meeting of natural beauties – in most cases. The Natural Beauty Summit is an annual meeting of the leaders of the Natural Cosmetics Industry and a platform to exchange ideas that further the cause of natural products. A lot of what is discussed at this meeting will directly affect consumers (you!) in the coming months and years, so I find it appropriate to update you on some of the issues we are currently struggling with. The main problem that all the “real” natural brands, such as us, are struggling with is how to differentiate ourselves from the “pretend”...

Cultivating Beauty
Welcome to the entirely new and beautiful website of Weleda North America! I am very proud of what our great team has achieved in just three months. The beauty that you see throughout is what we call “Cultivating Beauty.” For me, that means looking for the beauty in everything and everyone and then cultivating it. We do this every day, and we hope to help you do the same. At Weleda, we don’t need to invent stories to make anything we do look more beautiful. It simply is. The heritage and the very nature of the company provide us with so many beautiful stories to share. The village in the Peruvian desert that cultivates the rhatania root we use in...
