Aknedoron Purifying Range (for spot prone skin)

Aknedoron full range (1)

Weleda’s original Aknedoron Purifying Lotion and Cleansing Lotion are two of the oldest Weleda skincare products (the cleanser was introduced in 1923 and has been manufactured in the UK since the 1940s).

Original Aknedoron Cleansing Lotion

Made with therapeutic plant extracts of organic chamomile and calendula plus toning organic lemon and grapefruit juices. Deep-cleanses problem skin gently but effectively, without stripping the skin’s natural protective layer. A wonderfully fresh yet delicate fragrance is created by essential oils of orange, rosemary and lavender.

Original Aknedoron Purifying Lotion

Intensive care for problem skin, this lotion contains organic tinctures of calendula – valued for centuries for its wound healing, natural antiseptic action – soothing chamomile and echinacea – combined with mildly astringent witch hazel, sulphur and organic lemon juice to fight spots and pimples. Effective day- or night-time care to soothe problem areas and blemishes.

Launching in February 2020, are three new additions to the range:

NEW Purifying Gel Cleanser – A gentle but highly effective gel cleanser for deep pore cleansing. Clinically tested to cleanse deeply and reduce oiliness whilst also removing makeup. The shower-fresh natural fragrance is provided by a mix of pure essential oils of chamomile, lavender and peppermint, all natural antibacterials traditionally used to treat skin problems.

NEW Refining Lotion

A light, non-comedogenic moisturising lotion that provides day-long hydration and uses the powers of antibacterial willow extract and soothing organic witch hazel distillate, for visibly clearer skin. The lotion has a long-lasting mattifying effect, clinically tested to reduce blemishes, counter shininess, and calm the skin, and can be applied under makeup.

NEW SOS Spot Treatment

A cooling spot treatment to target spots and pimples, day or night. Made with antibacterial willow extract and astringent witch hazel distillate, to improve the appearance of reddened skin overnight. Made with two further natural antibacterials: essential oil of thyme, and the addition of sulphur to reduce the production of sebum. Can be applied under makeup.

All products are NATRUE certified natural and are made without mineral oils or petrochemical derivatives, synthetic fragrances, artificial preservatives or parabens. With five products to cleanse, soothe, hydrate, mattify and treat, the result is a complete care system for blemish prone skin.

Weleda gathers fresh, wild-grown sloes and gently sweetens them with organic raw sugar. Added in is just a twist of bio-dynamically grown lemon juice.

All the energy from a year’s growth in the wild, bottled in a power-packed tasty drink for your family.

Chamomile Teething Granules


Weleda has relaunched its homeopathic medicinal Weleda Baby Chamomile Teething Granules, with lovely packaging featuring a chamomile flower and ladybird.

For the relief of teething pain and other minor symptoms associated with teething in babies and children. Calming chamomile has been valued since antiquity for its calming, anti-inflammatory properties, it’s a natural anti-spasmodic and mild sedative, great for soothing a bloated stomach and trapped wind – this makes it a great remedy (often recommended by midwives) to generally soothe crying or fractious infants.

Weleda grow their own chamomile organically, using the strictest biodynamic methods at their Derbyshire herb gardens, to ensure quality and purity. Weleda’s chamomilla tincture is made from the root, which is harvested in Spring before plants direct their energy into flower growth. The homegrown crop is guaranteed free from GM materials, pesticides or chemical sprays.

These Chamomile Teething Granules are easily sucked and dissolved, and have a pleasant taste – they won’t cause problems for lactose-intolerant infants. The product is vegan friendly and gluten-free, with no synthetic ingredients, no artificial additives, sweeteners, flavourings or preservatives.

The granules come with a tiny measuring scoop for easy administration. The recommended dose is one level scoopful every 15 minutes until the condition improves (up to a maximum of 12 doses in 24h). The granules can also be dissolved in 5ml of cooled boiled water for younger babies aged 3-6 months.
