Case Study - Weleda

January 2015 Case Study - Weleda

Weleda tests anthroposophic medicinein line with ICH guidelines


The work of the holistic natural cosmetics and anthroposophic medicine manufactu-rer Weleda is based on the spiritual philo-sophy of Rudolf Steiner and aims to unite humankind and nature in perfect harmony. The company was founded in 1921 in Arlesheim (Switzerland), with two further hubs added in Huningue, (France) and Schwäbisch Gmünd (Germany) over the years. These three sites are where the majority of the around 1,000 natural raw materials are turned into 120 natural cos-metic products and several thousand medicines. These products are manufac-tured on a purely natural basis without any artificial preservatives, and to this end, Weleda even has its own biodynamic hor-ticulture and tincture production facilities.
