Jayn Sterland voted #1 in the 2023 Who’s Who In Natural Beauty

Jayn Sterland, managing director of Weleda UK, has retained her No.1 position in the latest ‘Who’s Who in Natural Beauty’, which recognises the organic beauty sector’s leading personalities, and those driving change and growth in the industry.

The Top 25 is published in the autumn issue of Natural Beauty News and represents a compilation of “…the personalities who have helped make plant-powered skincare the world-changing sector it is today … ambitious entrepreneurs, exacting formulators and rigorous regulators, industry cheerleaders, thought leaders and tireless advocates. With their forward-thinking ethos, style and passion, the natural beauty sector is sure to soar into a cleaner, more ethical and sustainable future.”

#1 The Weleda Leader

“For over a decade now Jayn Sterland has ploughed her energy into the brand she loves, helping to drive the beauty industry towards social and environmental responsibility and more sustainable business practices. It’s a mission she continues in her work as a public speaker and columnist, while still offering her time and expertise to groups such as the B Corp Beauty Coalition, the Sustainable Beauty Coalition (which she chaired for over two years) and the British Beauty Council where she now holds the position of pillar president (ESG). Hers is an ethics-led approach that has made Weleda a cherished must-have for conscious consumers across the UK, as well as a retailer favourite. It’s also made her a worthy regular in our Top 25. Congratulations Jayn!”

This is the 11th year that Jayn has featured in the Top 25 and her seventh time in the No.1 spot!

“I am so appreciative of everyone who took the time to nominate me, amongst this inspiring list of influential voices in our industry. It really helps sustain our commitment to growing the sector when our voices are heard and our efforts recognised, and I know it will spur us on to further action to make the beauty industry increasingly sustainable”.
