About the company

Weleda is a Swiss company which only makes vegetarian products that carry the NaTrue certification.

None of its products contain parabens and phthalates which are widely used in cosmetics and toiletries.

Phthalates are used as solvents and can disrupt hormone production in humans. Parabens are preservatives which can mimic oestrogen and can act as a potential hormone system disruptor too.

Weleda has also been awarded our Best Buy Label for shower gel and toothpaste
