Pregnancy and breastfeeding will not just change your life but will also change your body’s requirements. Your skin and breasts in particular will be subjected to great stress over an extended period. This means you need to take extra care of these areas especially and to also be very mindful that what goes on you, can go in you, so choose your skincare and body care carefully.
We want you to be well – physically, mentally and spiritually.
Natural products, for health and vitality tailored to individual needs, is the philosophy behind Weleda’s natural skin care. Since the company’s beginning over 90 years ago, Weleda has worked to strengthen the balance of body, mind and spirit with its products.
Our skin is not just our largest sensory organ, it’s the page on which our life story is written. Through skin we feel and perceive the world outside, and we also show our beauty in the way our skin appears. Outward appearance reflects each individual’s age, life energy, emotional balance and mental health. Intense stimulation, stress, nervousness or hormonal fluctuations result in our skin becoming sensitive as the whole organism loses its natural balance.
It’s the purpose of Weleda’s natural skincare to promote general well-being. For you to remain fit and healthy it’s vital that you feel, quite literally, good in your skin. Our products should strengthen your skin’s own strengths and abilities, not replace them or mask weaknesses.
Our understanding of the harmonious connection between mankind and nature makes Weleda’s care products unique. When you use a Weleda product you can see, smell and feel this for yourself. Our natural ingredients give targeted support to your body’s own natural processes, boosting internal balance. They enhance your body’s ability to nurture and heal, to help itself.
By selectively supporting self-healing and regeneration the defences are strengthened and the disturbed equilibrium is brought into balance. So we promote the vitality of the skin, rather than simply replacing what it lacks.
