Weleda Insight Day

Yesterday we were lucky enough to be invited to one of the Weleda Insight Days.

Weleda is an organic, biodynamic, sustainable (and everything else good!) cosmetic and pharmaceutical manufacturer. If you haven’t heard of them then take a look at their website where you will find all you need to know to only ever want to use natural skin care products again!

From the moment we arrived it was clear that everyone working as part of the Weleda team had a real passion for what they were doing. The staff were all super friendly and welcoming and the company as a whole seemed to completely live and breathe the Weleda ethos. We were especially impressed by the biodegradable water bottles we were given to take on our trip round the meadows!

After a brief introduction we were all taken to the farm where Michael gave us a guided tour of all the plants Weleda uses with little factoids and anecdotes about each thrown in for extra measure. His love and enthusiasm for what he does shone through and left everybody smiling. We loved how each plant was labeled with a picture of the products it is used to make.photo 2 (600x800)

As we emerged from the forest area we were lead to a marquee to learn about how the ‘Mother tinctures’ are made in the Weleda factory and there was a chance to get involved with making our own.Fotor0625165721

Lunch was just as impressive as the rest of the day with cute little tiered afternoon tea stands loaded with locally sourced goodies.

The final part of the afternoon was a chance to try loads of the Weleda products including our new favourite; Citrus Bath Milk! Its so refreshing and silky on the skin and the smell is heavenly. Apparently its Simon Cowell’s favourite too…

We were blown away by the ethos Weleda lives by and the integrity of the products and we’re looking forward to using more of them in our kit!
