Responsible – Weleda makes it a priority to be in dialogue with the people who it works with and works actively with individual farming partners to address specific difficulties in country areas by funding education and facilities such as schools or raw material processing sites in small, rural areas. Through organic cultivation of nearly 248 km2 worldwide (the equivalent of 35,000 football pitches) Weleda is taking active measures to improve soil health and to conserve biodiversity.
To raise awareness for the importance of biodiversity, Weleda Australia has been running the Bee B&B Hotel program since 2016 and has gifted over 500 insect hotels and teaching curriculums to primary schools in Australia. The project allows children to learn and observe native bees and the important role they play in our ecosystem.
Weleda use 100% green electricity and approximately 50% renewable energy at production sites in Germany, Switzerland and France. By 2022 Weleda aims to increase its renewable energy consumption to 80%. Rain water is collected and used for the irrigation of the medicinal plant gardens and biodynamic farming methods employed to increase the formation of humus, which stores carbon effectively.
This is a gentle lotion that helps heal blemishes. It also works well on oily skin to help mattify and help keep pores clean. A great alternative for oily and sensitive skin.
A thin moisturiser, which properly moisturises and feels great on the skin. It doesn’t leave a sticky feeling and absorbs very quickly. Furthermore, the brand’s contribution to people and biodiversity is excellent – I appreciate their UEBT certification and find their organic ingredients quite enticing.
This is the perfect primer when your skin is breaking out. It hydrates yet removes all shine. I sometimes just use it on my t-zone – I love that it has antibacterial and soothing ingredients in it actively working to give me clearer skin.
I adore the scent of this beautiful lotion. Fortunately for the sake of this review, a blemish appeared above my eyebrow just before testing it, and upon application I found this lotion really helped to reduce inflammation and reduce oil within the area, without drying out my skin.
