Soothing calendula and organic olive oil soften tough skin and fine kaolin clay ensures a pleasant finish. Your feet can flex, relax and get back on track!

Q. Why Weleda Skin Care?
Since 1921, Weleda has pioneered the use of biodynamic and organic ingredients in skincare and medicines to promote natural harmony and health. Our purest ingredients—natural, organic, biodynamic and wild crafted—come directly from nature and are cultivated with the loving hands of dedicated farmers throughout the world. We create premier, naturally therapeutic skincare that captures the power and potency of nature. When you care for your skin with our soothing preparations, you will experience a vitality that only nature can bring.
Q. What is magnesium aluminium silicate and why do you 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 our skincare products and it works as a gentle polisher in our toothpastes.
Q. How do you preserve your formulations?
All of our premier formulations are preserved with natural ingredients. We use organic grain alcohol, natural essential oils and pure plant extracts to maintain the life of our products. Furthermore, our unique and recyclable packaging protects each formulation and helps to prevent against oxidation. As a result of these naturally effective preservation techniques, it is not necessary to refrigerate our products. All product life information can be found on the inner and outer packaging.
Q. Why do some of your skin care and medicine products contain alcohol?
In homoeopathic medicines and tinctures, alcohol is traditionally used to draw out the vital life forces of a plant to create a botanical extract in a specific concentration. Alcohol is also used as a natural preservative in our formulations. We use organic grain alcohol, which is naturally derived from fermented plant sugars. We do not use Methyl or Propyl alcohol—also known as rubbing alcohol.
Q. Why do you use alcohol in your skin care products?
We use organic grain alcohol in many of our Weleda 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 we 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. We 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, our products derive their effect from the sum of their components and not from any individual ingredient. We have performed safety and efficacy tests on all our products to ensure that under normal or reasonably foreseeable conditions the use of our products is safe and will provide the claimed effects.

Q. How do you colour and fragrance your products?
Our products are naturally coloured with the essential plant extracts that make-up each pure formula. All formulas are naturally fragranced with essential oils and plant extracts. We do not use any synthetic colours or fragrances.
Q. Do you use any synthetic ingredients?
We use only natural oils and plant extracts. All Weleda products are FREE of synthetic preservatives, fragrances, colorants and raw materials derived from mineral oils, as well as genetically modified organisms (GMO’s). Our products are instead FULL of the highest quality, pure and natural ingredients for your body.
Q. Are Weleda products cruelty free?
We get asked all the time about animal testing and whether our natural and organic cosmetics are 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. We don’t carry any bunny symbols on our packs because we are a global brand with international packaging, instead we have the NATRUE seal on our products. Animal testing is fundamentally against our and NATRUE’s underlying values and ethics.
