In Switzerland in 1921, one of the first female doctors, Dr. Ita Wegman co-founded Weleda with Dr. Rudolph Steiner on the belief that people are part of nature. Along with a team of scientists, Drs. Wegman and Steiner carefully orchestrated formulas that work with the body to awaken skin's natural functions. The result is a brand that has studied plants for nearly 100 years and harvests ingredients in alignment with the moon and stars. Weleda continues to create products that recognize the power of the natural world to balance mind, body and spirit.
