With a motto like “In Harmony with Nature,” WELEDA, like many of other German companies (Dr Hauschka and Lavera), is committed to making their products from raw materials grown to meet organic standards. Only select natural substances, carefully processed, are used to create innovative formulations that work the natural life processes of the human body. And with 80 years of experience carrying out the these standards, this is one company that does all-natural the right way. If all of that jargon isn’t impressive, check out the prices! Your budget will love it.
WELEDA Food Skin
For dry, sensitive skin, this moisturizer is a must. You can use it on your body or face. Containing essential oils of lavender, rosemary (great for fair rosacea-prone complexions), and pansy extract, which helps prevent blemishes, this rich cream is a lifesaver. It’s perfect for long flights when you need a good strong moisturizer to fight off the damaging free radicals in the air. Speaking of travel WELEDA has handy travel-size kits so you don’t have to lug around your must-haves when you’re on vacation.
NEW WELEDA Birch Cellulite Oil
Want a miraculous oil to rid you of your orange peel thighs? Sorry no can do. No oil can completely rid you of cellulite but this one really does improve the texture of your skin.
Voted Europe’s #1 Natural Body Care Product, WELEDA Birch Cellulite Oil is loaded with pure and organic plant extracts that tone the skin and support your skin’s overall health.
For best results, massage yourself with a skin brush for five minutes in the morning before applying the oil. It works best when skin is damp because it absorbs easier; massage the oil into skin with moderate pressure upwards toward the heart.
These are just two of WELEDA’s wide range of products ranging from skin care to baby products. All of WELEDA’s lines can be found in various health stores, including Whole Foods. Or, you can drop by the new WELEDA U.S. headquarters and flagship store in Palisades, which opens shortly.
