Bringing life to the desert

Jojoba is biodynamically grown and harvested in the Argentinian desert to benefit people and plants.

Argan and female empowerment

A new culture is making the world a little richer for plant, people and product! The Berber people in Morocco call argan oil liquid gold.

  • Tucked away in the southwest of Morocco, Weleda is sourcing wild harvested argan.

  • The harvest of the argan fruit is a Berber tradition for women only.

  • Producing argan the traditional way is labor intensive.

  • The nuts are crushed to obtain kernels which contain Argan oil.

  • Living conditions have improved through social initiatives, now with a school and kindergarten.

  • Environmentally conscious, socially responsible and high-quality argan. That’s good manufacturing that we are proud to support.

The story of Lavender

Sourcing where plants naturally grow, paying fairly for crops, including those lost to bad weather, local communities are able to find work.

The principle of conducting business for the good of people and nature is in our DNA.
