NATRUE and Weleda France co-exhibited in the 2019 edition of Natexpo, the biggest internal trade show for organic products in France, which took place from 20 to 22 October in Paris. With over 1,000 exhibitors, Natexpo 2019 brought together producers, manufacturers, distributors and specialists in the organic sector at national and international level. NATRUE had the chance to meet with some of our members and label users who are present in the French market and to exchange impressions about the challenges and opportunities for the natural and organic cosmetics sector in France, which is the second largest consumer market for organic products in Europe after Germany.

Weleda France

Sharing a stand with Weleda France was a unique experience for NATRUE to find out more about the inspiring work of one of our founding members. Having been in the market for almost 100 years, Weleda is not only a benchmark company in the natural and organic cosmetic sector, but also the world’s leading producer of natural and organic cosmetic products. Weleda and NATRUE share a common mission: to protect and promote authentic natural and organic cosmetics with exceptionally high-quality standards for the benefit of consumers worldwide.

Along with their most famous product line (such as the skin food one), Weleda presented their new organic food supplements and their NATRUE certified anti-blemish and concealer skincare products.
