Three-fold Nature of Human Beings, Plants and the Skin

Dr. Hauschka Skin Care; Dr. Hauschka Kosmetik

We spoke to Jose Kakebeeke, Australasian Esthetician Trainer about the philosophical approach behind Dr.Hauschka Skin Care is Anthroposophy, meaning ‘wisdom of man/woman’.

Philosopher and natural scientist Dr. Rudolf Steiner’s work is not for the faint hearted, however I think it’s interesting to have an understanding of how this relates to the development of product formulations and the efficacy of Dr.Hauschka Skin Care preparations. Through close observation of plants in their natural environments Steiner explored the relationship between plants and people. His work revealed the healing qualities of specific plants and showed how each of their three parts is symbiotic with the human body and skin; the body’s largest organ. This concept he named ‘three-fold’.

Three parts to people

According to the three-fold image, the human being is made up of three core systems: the nerve-sense, the rhythmic and the metabolic-limb.

Three parts to plants

Like humans, plants have their own three-fold system. For a plant, however, the system is turned upside down. While in a human the nerve-sense system is found in the head, in a plant, it’s in the roots, the other way around. The metabolic-limb system is at the top of a plant in its flowers, fruits and seeds. At the centre of a plant, the stem and leaves is the rhythmic system.

Three parts to skin

Skin has three layers; the epidermis (top layer), dermis (mid layer) and subcutaneous or hypodermis (3rd and deepest layer). You would have heard of the term ‘third degree burns’, meaning all three layers of the skin.

Making a difference

Real health and beauty come from the inside and the outside. In its natural state, the skin is healthy and balanced. However skin condition can easily be compromised when other factors come into play; such as internal and external environmental issues, lifestyle, hormonal issues, transitions or stress. Peace of mind is beneficial for the skin as is adequate sleep, nutritious food, fresh air and exercise. Negative effects on the skin may result in acne/ blemishes, inflammation, dry and/or dehydrated skin, prematurely aged or simply a complexion that lacks health and radiance. At this point the natural world helps to heal. How this relates to Dr.Hauschka Skin Care by understanding the remarkable similarities between plants and the skin, we are able to select ingredients that support particular skin functions.

We can take Rosemary as an example of how we look at a particular medicinal plant ingredient. Rosemary has few flowers, and an abundance of leaves. The leaves are the plant’s rhythmic system. We look at the effect Rosemary has on our rhythmic system: enhancing circulation, warming and invigorating.

Dr.Hauschka Skin Care preparations contain elements of root, leaf and flowers so that all three layers of skin are addressed.

Our formulations are developed by Anthroposophically trained doctors and pharmacists in conjunction with our highly qualified Dr.Hauschka trained Estheticians. Our formulations are complex and they comprise of many elements never one or two.

‘One violin doesn’t make an orchestra.’ says Jose

Every ingredient that goes into a Dr.Hauschka Skin Care product has an important job to do. Whether delivering essential moisture, encouraging resilience, protection from the environment, improving efficacy or adding natural, therapeutic fragrance, each element is painstakingly selected for its particular effects and its interaction with the others. WALA and Dr. Hauschka Skin Care have been working with healing plant and mineral extracts since the 1930’s. Their pharmaceutical and medicinal expertise joins over 45 years of pioneering work in holistic skin care to create the purest, most effective natural skin care products available.

Winter Weather Bath Essence

Screen Shot 2014-05-19 at 2.14.30 pm

Dr. Hauschka’s answer to cold, wet winter weather limited edition Spruce Warming Bath Essence. Like a walk in a pine forest, calming yet invigorating.

Spruce Warming Bath Essence
Limited Edition 30ml

Autumn and winter have many positive sides – but cold, wet weather often takes the fun out of these seasons. Spending time outdoors can quickly lead to a chill. Unpleasant dampness can penetrate through clothing all the way to the skin. This is the right moment for Spruce Warming Bath Essence from Dr. Hauschka. Slipping into the bath warms the body and soothes the spirit, imparting a sense of well-being.

During the wet and cold seasons of the year, a warm bath sometimes works wonders. After coming in from the cold, you can finally relax and forget the rest of the world for a few moments. Spruce essential oil promotes circulation to the skin and joins with the pleasant heat of the bath water to provide the entire body with intensive and lasting warmth, while jojoba oil gently moisturises the skin. The aromatic bath soothes and relaxes without making you feel tired. The resinous fragrance of spruce needles lets you breathe freely again – providing relief at the time of year when coughs and colds abound.

Tip: Dr. Hauschka Spruce Warming Bath Essence can also be used outside the bath tub. Place a few drops of Spruce Bath Essence in a small bowl of warm water – the fragrance will spread through the entire room and create a special ambience in the wintertime.

Organic castor oil from cultivation project in India

Screen Shot 2014-05-19 at 2.54.10 pm

Spruce Warming Bath Essence and other Dr. Hauschka products are based on cold-pressed castor oil produced in India. WALA (Dr. Hauschka) has initiated a pioneering agricultural project that supports local people. Only a few years ago, this raw material was not available on the world market in organic quality; as a result, WALA began developing its own solution. The entire castor-bean cultivation and processing chain in India is now organically certified. The seeds are cold pressed, filtered and filled into new, food-safe containers. The premium castor oil is then shipped to Germany by sea. Thanks to the company’s partnership with the Indian suppliers, today WALA’s demand for certified organic castor oil can be completely met.

The Beauty of Every Face

Elisabeth Sigmund in Her Own Words

In December 2013, Esthetician, Formulator and Co-Founder of Dr. Hauschka Skin Care Elisabeth Sigmund passed away at the age of 99. The insights Elisabeth Sigmund offers into skin care, beauty and her life are at once fascinating, inspiring and profound.

Screen Shot 2014-01-14 at 5.58.23 pm

A Resolution to Take Skin Care Seriously

“In 1929, a very important thing happened in my life. My father died at the age of 41. I was 14, so for me it felt like the end of the world. I believed my father had died due to a wrong diagnosis. This influenced my decision to go to medical school in Vienna, where I was one of only two female students. We were not treated badly but just considered to be nonexistent. I also observed a disregard for skin care by traditional medicine, as if skin care did not merit serious study. I saw that skin care was a kind of ‘stepchild’ that wasn’t taken very seriously, but were delegated to vanity and unrelated to health. However, I saw the importance that the skin, the largest organ of the body, plays maintaining and reflecting health.

“I eventually became ill and left medical school and never returned. I traveled to the Alps to recover and there I imagined developing my own skin care preparations. I went on many walks and on one of these walks I discovered an old monastery where I was allowed to use the library. There I found interesting connections between medicine and skin care. In one of the books, I found an old formulation for a face tonic. From this, I formulated my first facial toner and began my career as a developer of skin care preparations. Also during this time, I studied the works of Rudolf Steiner where I came across the word SCHONHEIT, the German word for beauty. Inherent in the meaning of the word is the idea that something of an inner soul quality shines through the human being. This confirmed my perception that skin care should not be treated superficially.”

ES 1930s
Elisabeth – 1930’s

When Skin Care Was the Work of “Beauty Queens.”

“Skin care or estheticians were called “Oh, the beauty queens” by blue-collar workers as well as society ladies. Even my own mother hesitated to tell her friends that her daughter was in the skin care business because she thought it was very inappropriate. Basically there was very little choice of products and only people of a higher social class could afford to buy skin care at that time. My mother used a formulation of almond paste to cleanse her delicate face and this was the basis for our cleansing cream as we have it today in the Dr. Hauschka range.”

ES 1945
Elisabeth – 1945

“My goal was to address the changing conditions of my client’s skin.”

“Years later, after World War II, I had a clinic in Sweden. I tested every product on the market and was dissatisfied with what I found. I continued making my own preparations for individual clients and achieved great results and devoted clients. However after two years of preparing products for different clients with different skin conditions, as well as for different seasons, I felt that the results, although effective, were too pampering. My goal was to address the changing condition of my client’s skin by changing her formulas for all the variables involved. Just about this time a wealthy client offered me the use of a cottage on a beautiful island in Sweden.”

Anthyllis, “the central plant of my facial preparations.”

“Surrounded by nature and silence, I took long walks. One day I came upon a meadow of clover which made me think of anthyllis, a plant that I had read about in an old text while researching medicinal plants at a monastery in Germany. I started adding an extract of anthyllis to the products and discovered that it benefited many different skin conditions. After many successful experiments on my clients, I chose anthyllis as the central plant for my facial preparations. I then added complementary ingredients to form compositions that would stimulate and support the skins own functions and thus regulate the skin rather than pamper it.”

Grandmother’s Recipe for Rose Day Cream

“The Rose Day Cream is based on a cream that my grandmother used to use, a kind of Crème Céleste or celestial cream. She had a recipe for it, which her pharmacist made up newly for her every time she ran out. This face cream contained olive oil, beeswax, ethereal rose oil and rose water. When I first took a real interest in skin care, my grandmother gave me a copy of the recipe, which she had brought from her home region of Moravia. Despite the turmoil of the Second World War, during which I had to move house several times, I saved it as my little gem. Once in Stockholm, I took it back out and modified it.”

The Beauty of Every Face

“I observed that there is an architectural beauty to every human face. That one can care for the face with the finest products and decorative, but that there is something that transcends those factors. Something shines through that can also have a negative expression and that regardless of the external situation, the negative remains apparent. As an esthetician, I was able to establish an intimate and trusting relationship with my clients. When I noticed anger, jealousy or any conflict expressed on a client’s face that prevented one’s own beauty from shining forth, I consciously worked to help resolve the conflict. My Dr. Hauschka Classic Treatment offers the chance to touch clients in a therapeutic manner that often is enough to resolve their unease with themselves. At times, it took more of a kind and patient conversation with clients to help them remember their inner beauty. I see it as the task of an esthetician to help the client express their inner beauty and not work simply on the surface.”

Most Important Discoveries

“For me personally, in addition to the discovery of so many medicinal plants that affected the skin, there were two major things. Firstly, I discovered that a cosmetic made purely from natural ingredients can do a great deal more for the skin than a conventional cosmetic made from chemical/synthetic substances.

“The second key discovery for my treatment concept was that the skin regenerates more effectively at night if you do not use a night cream. It is far better to treat your skin with an aqueous solution containing medicinal plants that stimulate your skin’s natural activity. I am delighted to see that these discoveries still form the basis of Dr. Hauschka Skin Care.”

Plant Profile: Almond

Dr. Hauschka Skin Care; Dr. Hauschka Kosmetik

Almond Tree
Synonyms: Sweet Almond
Scientific Name: Prunus dulcis (Mill.)
Family: Rosaceae (Rose Family)

Habitat
Subtropical China and Asia Minor

Constituents
54% fatty oil containing oleic acid, linoleic acid and palmitic acid, protein, enzymes.

Description
All sorts of things come to mind when we think of almonds: marzipan and macaroons, for example. Now we know that marzipan is polarising, you either love it or loathe it. However, bought marzipan with it’s OTT almond essence is not remotely like delicate homemade marzipan. If you’re not sure on Almond we think you’re in for a pleasant surprise.

There’s always minis if you wish to just ‘dip your toes in’ to begin with anyway before throwing yourself at full size luxuriating and soothing Almond products. 

Whatever the context, what we picture in our mind’s eye is the edible almond kernel. But what about the plant that goes with it? The first surprise: the up to 8-metre high, bare, frost-sensitive almond tree with its grey bark belongs to the rose family and is thus closely related to the cherry, peach, apricot and, of course, the rose. We can see this relationship when we look at the pink flowers with yellow stamens which appear as early as January in Mediterranean countries. The second new perspective: the almond kernel we eat is actually the almond seed which is inside the hard shell or pit. The robust pit is enclosed in the dry, green, bitter and inedible fruit. The almond kernel corresponds to the kernel inside a peach pit or stone. Incidentally, peach kernels are used to make an imitation marzipan called persipan.

Uses
Containing 18% protein, 16% carbohydrates and 54% fat, plus many minerals and vitamins, particularly of the B group, almonds are a meal in themselves and taste equally good eaten as they are or in the form of almond spread. In the old days they used to be given to children for coughs. The almond oil expressed from the seeds is a mild skin care oil with good moisturising properties. Almond meal, the residue left after expressing the oil, is a gentle skin cleanser.

There are two other varieties apart from the sweet almond: the bitter almond and the soft-shelled almond. The latter is also edible, like the sweet almond, whereas the bitter almond contains the poisonous glycoside amygdalin from which cyanide is formed in the intestine. Bitter almond oil from which amygdalin has been chemically removed is an aromatic flavouring and a good fragrance and is used by pastry cooks and cosmetic manufacturers.

Dioscurides believed the bitter almond could heal practically all ills: used externally it would drive away “sun spots in the face”, induce menstruation, relieve headaches and heal sores, used internally it was said to relieve pain, stimulate elimination of water, soften the stomach, promote sleep, help relieve coughs, liver disorders, flatulence… The list is endless.

Interesting Facts
All names for the almond in European languages are derived from the Greek amygdale or amygdalos. The origin of this word is no longer known. The prefix al- in the Iberian names (e.g. Spanish almendra) is the imported Arabic article al or el which found its way into many scientific terms during the Moorish occupation of the Iberian peninsula. The generic name Prunus is derived from the Greek proumon = plum, the almond’s relative. The specific epithet dulcis = sweet refers to the taste of the kernels.

Almonds already grew in the stone age and their cultivation is thought to go back to the Bronze age. The almond is probably the oldest cultivated fruit of the Old World with a success story that continues right up to the present day. In the 17th to 16th century before the birth of Christ the almond tree made its way from its native Asia via Persia to Asia Minor, Syria and Egypt. In the 5th century it then travelled further to Greece and to the Roman Empire. Charlemagne contributed significantly to the spread of the almond tree and today we can no longer imagine Mediterranean countries without it. It is seen there as a symbol of vigilance and rebirth because it blossoms in January already.

Ancient Greece in particular is the source of many legends in which the almond tree plays a role. According to one of these legends the almond is said to have developed from a drop of blood of the Greek goddess Kybele, the mother of the gods, who was originally the goddess of the mountains and of fertility in Asia Minor. In other accounts the almond tree is said to have developed from the male half of a hermaphroditic being created by Zeus.

There is an almond tree fairy tale from Morocco. In this fairy tale the beautiful princess Hatim had such a kind heart that she took money from her father’s coffers and gave it to the poorest of her country. The king had no understanding for his daughter’s behaviour, accused her of theft and had her executed. Allah understood Hatim’s action and transformed the dead princess into an almond tree which gave the country’s people almonds year after year.

The Bible contains several references to the almond, often because of its early blossoming as a sign of awakening. The six-branched candlestick of the biblical Tabernacle, the meeting place of God with Moses and his people, is modelled on an almond tree. The almond is probably best known in the form of marzipan, which came originally from the orient and was traditionally made of almonds, sugar and rose water. Baghlaba is the Persian variety additionally flavoured with cardamom and traditionally eaten there during the four-week festivities in celebration of the New Year. In 16th century Germany the production of marzipan was the province of the pharmacists whose “confectiones” were only prepared with sugar to make the bitter medicine more pleasant-tasting. Marzipan was also known as “heart sugar”. Gradually the pleasant taste came to take precedence over the medicinal action and the almond confection moved from being a medicine to a sweet. In medieval cooking almonds were not only contained in sweet dishes: meat and fish dishes were also prepared with almonds.

The almond tree gives off a resin which can be collected in the form of tears. In Ancient Greece these resin tears were burnt as incense to ward off disease and evil spirits. The fine fragrance disinfects, purifies and clarifies.

The Plant at Dr. Hauschka
The almonds used for Dr. Hauschka skin care products are organically grown and originate in Spain and Italy. In Germany they are then processed in a traditionally operating oil mill to express the almond oil and ground to almond meal. The mild almond oil has a good slip and glide and is taken up slowly by the skin. The oil is the conditioning base of Dr. Hauschka After Sun Lotion, Concealer, Daily Hydrating Eye Cream, Quince Day Cream, Revitalising Day Cream, Cleansing Cream, Clarifying Day Oil, Hand Cream, Lip Care Stick, Lipsticks, Soothing Cleansing Milk, Rose Body Moisturiser, Almond Body Moisturiser, Rose Day Cream Light, Regenerating Day Cream, Regenerating Neck and Décolleté Cream, Regenerating Body Cream, Firming Mask, Tinted Day Cream and Almond St. John’swort Body Oil. In Dr. Hauschka Cleansing Cream almond meal is particularly effective at binding dirt particles and thus gently and deeply cleanses the skin.

The Truth About Exfoliating

Screen Shot 2013-09-04 at 3.21.22 PM

How often do you read advice that you should be exfoliating?

Plenty, but not from us, that’s for sure.

So called exfoliating ‘beauty treatments’ include dermabrasion, laser resurfacing, AHA/BHA peels, plus of course there’s numerous harsh exfoliants on the market; grains, brushes, acids and so forth. Many exfoliating ‘grain’ products are made from plastics that will be floating around in our water for hundreds of years to come.

Harsh interference with the top layer of your skin gives you much more likelihood of sun damage, dryness, irritation, redness and sensitivity.

Our skin has an acid mantle, the reason for this is bacteria don’t like an acid environment, so it’s also important to preserve the pH of your skin using products that respect rather than disrupt this protection.

The top layer of your skin, the epidermis, is extremely thin. Any harsh acidic or scrubbing action is going to be damaging. Those dead cells are there for a reason, protecting the young cells coming through on a natural 28 day skin cell cycle. They’re also helping to keep moisture in.

We educate that you must treat your skin in a loving and gentle manner. It has to last you a lifetime!

Cleansing Cream in your morning skin care ritual will be removing dead cells that are ready to slough off in a very gentle manner, as will your weekly Cleansing Clay Mask. Nothing more than that is needed for healthy, balanced and radiant skin.

And yes, your skin can still feel incredibly soft without any harsh exfoliants whatsoever. Just incorporate Compress & Hydrate + Press & Roll into your daily regime. This method softens the pores of your skin resulting in a much deeper cleanse, using less product BTW, and in softer skin.

Then always complete your cleanse with a cool water splash or hold a cool compress to your skin for a moment or two. 

Why? Because this simple technique activates a minute muscle alongside the hair follicle causing it to contract which assists in removing any last remaining dirt, result is also a softening effect.

Skin Care During Menopause

Screen Shot 2014-05-12 at 11.33.59 am

During menopause skin is likely to experience changes. Hot flushes may be so problematic that using warming Rose products such as Rose Day Cream and/or Firming Mask may no longer be appropriate for this stage. Products with cooling properties or don’t specifically warm your skin are:

Regenerating Serum & Regenerating Day Cream
Quince Day Cream
Rejuvenating Mask
Moisturising Day Cream

Toned Day Cream – the original BB cream – is a great alternative too. As we age our skin becomes a little pallid, so Toned Day Cream puts the warm tones back into your skin, helps to even skin tone and provides plenty of moisture.

Some women experience severe break-outs for the first time in their life during menopause. So skin care needs to change to reflect this. Cover Stick is a must product for treating and healing any pimples as quickly as possible. Rejuvenating Mask is also highly recommended twice weekly. If you’ve been using Moisturising Day Cream, you may find this product too active for your sebaceous glands during this time of transition.

Other women experience extreme dryness (lack of oil) and/or dehydration (lack of water). Use Moisturising Mask twice weekly for a boost. You may also use Moisturising Mask as your daily moisturiser until condition improves. We also recommend light Moisturising Day Cream to activate a dry skin to produce more oil. Hydration plumps the skin so drinking your 6-8 glasses of water a day is extremely important.

Include specific support for your skin with Intensive Treatment 05 for Menopausal Skin.

Intensive Treatment 05 for Menopausal Skin
Specialised care for skin during menopause

Please note: change of name soon to Intensive Treatment for Menopausal Skin

Dr. Hauschka Intensive Treatments are formulated for skin that has lost its natural balance and requires focused care. Intensive Treatment for Menopausal Skin balances hormonally related skin changes while supporting your skin’s natural processes of renewal. The appearance of blotchiness and spots is diminished for a calm, even complexion.

Formulation: Rhythmitised dilutions of Daisy and Rose work with gemstones Argentite, Ruby powder and Black Cohosh to revitalise dull, lifeless skin and reduce the appearance of redness and irregular pigmentation.

Black Cohosh is well known for its use during menopause. Its rhizomes survive the winter, and it is these life-bearing rootstocks that are processed. They are much appreciated in particular during the phase of change surrounding the menopause. The Black Cohosh extract in Dr.Hauschka Skin Care products is prepared using our own special rhythmic process.

Rubies are red gemstones, so fitting with our homeopathic guidelines of like treats like, red treats redness. Ruby has a harmonising effect on the skin helping to reduce the appearance of redness and blotchiness. Rubies are one of the oldest traditional healing stones.

Argentite is a bluish-grey-to-black silver mineral with a metallic sheen. In combination with the other ingredients in Intensive Treatment 05, Argentite supports the skin’s own processes of renewal.

Use:
Skin cells are renewed every 28 days. Mirroring this same regenerative cycle, Intensive Treatments should be used as a 28 day entire treatment in the one bottle, to be used instead of a Toner. Intensive Treatments work most effectively when used four times a year as a stimulus. After morning and evening cleansing, mist 4-5 pumps onto the face, neck and décolleté then gently press into the skin.
