Weleda tests anthroposophic medicine in line with ICH guidelines


The work of the holistic natural cosmetics and anthroposophic medicine manufacturer Weleda is based on the spiritual philosophy 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 cosmetic products and several thousand medicines. These products are manufactured on a purely natural basis without any artificial preservatives, and to this end, Weleda even has its own biodynamic horticulture and tincture production facilities.
