Horst Rechelbacher

Horst Rechelbacher is an innovative businessman whose passion for the environment and natural medicine led to a new consciousness in the world of beauty. As the founder of the plant-based cosmetic companies Aveda Corporation and Intelligent Nutrients, he has worked to set a high bar in the personal care industry by using only 100 percent food-based, safe and organic ingredients.

We honored his innovation and leadership with a Breast Cancer Fund Hero Award in 2011.
