In the bottle we’ve put soothing chamomile, cooling aloe vera gel and organic oils of jojoba and coconut to help build and seal in moisture. The fresh, subtle fragrance comes from aromatic bitter gum of myrrh and natural essential oils. It’s a mix that’s as gentle as it is effective – ideal even for sensitive skin.

.Q. What is glycerin and why does Weleda use it?
Glycerin is a threefold alcohol found in every fat. Weleda use glycerin derived from rapeseed oil. This ingredient is produced through the saponification process of vegetable oil and soap. It regulates the absorption and release of water, softening and smoothing the skin.
Q. Why does Weleda use alcohol in their skin care products?
Weleda use organic grain alcohol in many of their creams, lotions and cleansers. It is needed to extract the active components of the herbs and other plants used in products. Additionally, alcohol improves the consistency and the stability of products. The stabilising effect is important as they do not use any synthetic preservatives in any Weleda products.
Alcohol has some benefits for the skin; it is a mild disinfectant and is also cooling. The alcohol content in Weleda skincare products does not harm the acid mantle, the skin’s natural oily cover. Weleda use low concentrations of alcohol in our creams, lotions and cleansers and at these low concentrations, alcohol has been shown to be well tolerated on the skin, even on sensitive baby skin.
In line with Weleda’s holistic approach to personal care, their products derive their effect from the sum of their components and not from any individual ingredient. Weeda have performed safety and efficacy tests on all their products to ensure that under normal or reasonably foreseeable conditions the use of their products is safe and will provide the claimed effects.
Weleda use organic grain alcohol, which is naturally derived from fermented plant sugars. Weleda do not use Methyl or Propyl alcohol—also known as rubbing alcohol.

Q. What is magnesium aluminium silicate and why does Weleda use it?
Magnesium aluminium silicate (fuller’s earth) is a naturally occurring mineral. Its name is the standard label applied to natural earth of various origins. Other commonly known names for this ingredient are hectorite, kaolin and white clay. This clay serves as a natural thickener commonly used to hold ingredients together, providing a moisture-binding effect. The molecules of magnesium aluminium silicate are too large to be absorbed through the skin, and it is a dermatologically well-tolerated material. This clay helps to remove impurities from the skin when used in Weleda skincare products and it works as a gentle polisher in our toothpastes.
Q. Are Weleda products cruelty free?
The answer is yes they most certainly are! Weleda has never tested any of its individual ingredients nor finished beauty products on animals. Weleda don’t carry any bunny symbols on their packs because they are a global brand with international packaging, instead they have the NATRUE seal on their products. Animal testing is fundamentally against Weleda and NATRUE’s underlying values and ethics.
