The Dr Hauschka Way

“When we de­vel­oped these un­con­ven­tional skin care prod­ucts, we nat­u­rally felt like rebels.” Elis­a­beth Sig­mund

In a world barely aware of the nat­u­ral prod­uct con­cept, Dr. Hauschka skin care prod­ucts were ahead of their time and bravely in­no­va­tive when they launched in 1967. The brand was founded on the con­cept of a bio­dy­namic cos­met­ics com­pany with a truly con­scious cul­ture. This mis­sion to be in tune with na­ture is em­bed­ded through the brand’s daily prac­tices, in­gre­di­ent sourc­ing and man­u­fac­tur­ing meth­ods. And it finds its ul­ti­mate ex­pres­sion in each and every Dr Hauschka skin­care prod­uct. In sync with Ger­man man­u­fac­turer WALA, Dr Hauschka’s founder Dr. Ru­dolph Hauschka started de­vel­op­ing nat­u­ral medicines as early as 1935. For many years, he con­sid­ered launch­ing his own skin­care range to com­ple­ment his range of medicines. It was not un­til he met Vi­enna-born cos­me­tol­o­gist Elis­a­beth Sig­mund that he re­al­ized this dream. They worked to­gether to de­velop sta­ble cream bases with­out chem­i­cal/syn­thetic emul­si­fiers and cre­ated mixes with nat­u­ral es­sen­tial oils. Elis­a­beth’s ex­pe­ri­ence taught her that skin pos­sesses its own pow­ers of nur­ture and re­gen­er­a­tion, and has dif­fer­ent needs at dif­fer­ent times of day. For ex­am­ple, her re­search re­vealed that dur­ing the day the skin needs mois­tur­iz­ing waxes and oils to pro­tect it from the el­e­ments, while at night it needs to breathe to re­gen­er­ate. The first Dr Hauschka nat­u­ral cos­met­ics were launched in 1967, and the spir­i­tual DNA of these first prod­ucts is still alive as the brand cel­e­brates 50 years of lead­er­ship in sus­tain­able bio­dy­namic skin­care. Since 1967, no Dr Hauschka Skin Care prod­uct has ever been tested on an­i­mals. Com­bin­ing a holis­tic sen­si­bil­ity with sen­su­ous flo­ral and herbal in­gre­di­ents, Dr. Hauschka skin­care sim­ply and lux­u­ri­ously co­op­er­ates with skin, rather than fix­ing or fight­ing. The brand also pro­duces colour cos­met­ics us­ing 100% pure min­eral pig­ments com­bined with nour­ish­ing plant oils, so that gor­geous skin can be beau­ti­fully en­hanced. Af­ter 50 years of gen­tle de­vel­op­ment, to­day Dr. Hauschka is a planet-friendly com­pany that will trans­form both your think­ing and your ap­pear­ance. By choos­ing to be­come a brand loy­al­ist, you’re mak­ing a so­cially re­spon­si­ble de­ci­sion that comes with an added ben­e­fit – a more beau­ti­ful you.
