Our natural care concept for your skin
We take a holistic approach. In our understanding, personal care should not only be about beauty, but also about maintaining the health of the skin. We achieve this by promoting a healthy balance with our products.
To do this, we draw on the special features of nature. Our care concept combines the effects of various natural active ingredients and thus strengthens the skin's own strengths. Lead plants give our care series their special character. The key plants symbolize our needs in certain phases of life and contribute to the effectiveness of the products. The pomegranate, for example, has a dynamizing and antioxidant effect. Because we believe that the life processes of nature and those of humans are connected.
We use active ingredients from nature
Our natural cosmetics contain valuable ingredients such as natural plant oils. Together with natural essential oils and other ingredients, they support the effect of the plant extracts in our holistic recipes. Does your skin need regenerative and antioxidant help, or does it primarily need moisture? In order to address the specific needs of the skin, we combine different oils and extracts. The oils for our high-quality care products come from apricot kernels, the fruits of the argan tree, the seeds of the pomegranate, wheat seedlings, sea buckthorn or the seeds of the evening primrose. We obtain effective extracts from a variety of plants such as the white mallow and the moisture-storing prickly pear. Since 1926, Weleda Skin Food has been caring for the skin thanks to an effective composition with extracts from pansy, chamomile and calendula flowers.
Why plant oils are good for your skin
Plants absorb the light and heat from the sun and convert them into sugar, i.e. matter. Through multi-stage conversion processes, various substances are created that combine to form fatty oils and are stored in the seeds. The oil obtained from the seeds and kernels is rich in saturated and unsaturated fatty acids as well as valuable vitamins. Pure plant oils are similar in composition to the skin barrier and can be absorbed and processed by the skin. They are easily absorbed and support the skin's natural functions: They supplement the fat content, thereby improving the skin's barrier and thus counteracting the loss of moisture in the skin. In contrast to vegetable oils, oils based on mineral oils have an occlusive effect and cannot be metabolized by the body.
