In March 2020 Ethical Consumer viewed Weleda's website and found the following statement "All Weleda skincare products and foods are suitable for those vegetarians who abstain only from meat and fish.
The following products are also suitable for vegetarians who generally abstain from ingredients of animal origin (vegans). Products that are marked as vegan don’t contain any raw materials derived from animals. However, a contact of these products and their raw materials to material of animal origin during the manufacturing process cannot be ruled out entirely. Products that are not marked as vegan contain raw materials derived from animals like bees wax, and its derivatives, lanolin, goat milk and/or lactose in natural cosmetic products or honey in elixirs.."
Weleda received half a positive Company Ethos mark.
