About the brand - WELEDA
It all goes back to 1921 in Switzerland when a philosopher, Rudolf Steiner understood that a human body has the potential to heal itself, but sometimes it needs a little help. So Weleda was formed to make products that work holistically, supporting our own bodies’ healing potential and the name couldn’t have been more appropriate: Weleda is the name of the Celtic goddess of wisdom and healing.
