Weleda has picked up an impressive eight awards at the 2017 Gentle Parenting Awards.
The natural beauty and naturopathic medicine specialist scooped a total of seven Golds among its haul, building on the company’s success last year at the same awards, when it won two Golds.
Products were shortlisted by Gentle Parenting’s panel of expert judges before being put to the test by parent reviewers, and then finally going forward to an online public vote.
Gentle Parenting’s founder, baby expert Sarah Ockwell-Smith, explained: ‘These awards are given to products that are well made, gentle to the child and the environment, and ones that solve a problem and are genuinely loved by gentle parents.”
Jayn Sterland, Weleda UK’s managing director, added: “Our mother and baby collection is really at the core of our business, with our Calendula Shampoo & Body Wash being our top selling product right across the Weleda range. We are thrilled that Weleda Baby is also clearly important to parents who are choosing to raise their families in a natural, gentle way. It’s also very exciting to receive an award for our newest addition to our maternity range – our organic Nursing Tea – at the end of Breastfeeding Celebration Week!”
