Look for certification

It’s important for consumers to understand that buying NATRUE and/or BDIH certified products means you are buying truly authentic organic products. There’s no labelling laws around the use of ‘natural’ and ‘organic’ so certification is a must. Every one of our products goes through a formulation audit every second year. 

Your skin is your largest organ

Your skin can absorb much of what’s applied to it. We know how important it is to eat fresh, nutritious, high quality food – it’s the same for our skin. The higher quality the ingredients, the healthier your skin. Dr. Hauschka only uses whole ingredients, ingredients are not in isolated form, they’re full of antioxidants, vitamins and phytonutrients that our skin understands for healthy and radiant skin.

You know what you’re getting with natural ingredients

There’s a big difference between natural and organic skin care and make-up and conventional skin care and make-up. We use plant oils instead of petroleum, natures colours instead of artificial synthetic chemical dyes, rhythmic processing and natural antioxidants to preserve instead of synthetic chemical preservatives and our subtle product aromas come from natural and organic essential oils not synthetic chemical fragrances.

Beauty and wellbeing are inextricably linked

Elisabeth Sigmund, co-founder of Dr. Hauschka said “We’ve always approached beauty from the inside because beauty is about being healthy; energy, vitality, a balanced mind and body. If your cells are healthy they can regenerate and stay healthy longer, leading to radiant skin and an energy that can’t be hidden – the kind of glow that people comment on.”

Organic, biodynamic and wild harvested ingredients are high in vitality, it’s this vitality we wish to pass onto your skin through the quality of our ingredients and our unique rhythmic processing.

Read your labels

The best advice is to read and understand your labels. Stay away from petrolatum, mineral oils (they’re occlusive to the skin) parabens, PEGs, phthalates and silicone.

It’s not just about your face

Your face is a relatively small area of skin, so also be very aware of products you’re applying to your body. Dr. Hauschka’s Body Oils and Body Moisturisers are nourishing for your skin and also provide aromatic benefits as well. Choose for your mood!

Elisabeth Sigmund discovery quote: 

“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 skin care made purely from natural ingredients can do a great deal more for the skin than a conventional skin care 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.”
