JAYN STERLAND, WELEDA UK
Jayn joined Weleda in 2008 and was appointed managing director in 2016.

Jayn regularly gives talks to the industry and to consumers about the value of authentically natural and organic cosmetics, and in 2017 was voted No.1 in the UK natural and organic cosmetics industry Top 25 for the second year running.
