“Into the Green” with Weleda
We’re reporting from Schwäbisch Gmünd, Germany where we’re off to visit Weleda Naturals Biodynamic Gardens (all 135 acres of them) to learn how Weleda products are grown right from the earth – not a lab. We’ll be harvesting calendula, one of the main ingredients in Weleda’s Calendula Baby Care products, as well as learning about biodynamic gardening, and treating farms as complete, self-sustaining organisms. Can’t wait to share what we find with you! Stay tuned for pictures, and a full recap. In the meantime, check out the feature article in Weleda’s most recent “We” Magazine with an interview from Zem:
“… natural ingredients are just as effective—if not more so—than their conventional counterparts. “Chemical ingredients simply mask symptoms and often create their own problems,” says Pol. “On the other hand, plant-, seed- and fruit-based ingredients work with your skin to help balance its moisture and oxygen levels. And unlike petroleum-based products, natural care closely matches your skin’s own make-up and works in harmony with our skin so that it can be its healthiest and most beautiful.” Fruits like the pomegranate—the main ingredient in Weleda’s Pomegranate Regenerating Body Care—are rich in antioxidants proven to help support the skin’s natural renewal process and protect it from free-radical damage. Nut oils such as sweet almond oil contain fatty acids that boast anti-inflammatory properties. Essential oils are used to create beautiful, singular and wholly natural, aromatherapeutic fragrances.”
