How do you know what’s really authentic natural and organic skin care?

Natural Organic Skin Care

The difference made transparent

What percentage of the ingredients in natural cosmetics are organic? What are the minimum standards and the maximum values?

Furthermore, how can you describe the high quality of a product other than through its material properties – its finely tuned composition, its more than biochemical effect?

We don’t think ‘natural enough’ is good enough for your skin. Only the very best, highest quality, natural and organic ingredients for long term results and healthy, radiant skin.

Our entire skin care and make-up range is certified with the international quality seal for natural and organic skin care and make-up – NATRUE.

The NATRUE standard distinguishes between:

  1. Natural skin care and make-up
  2. Natural skin care and make-up with at least 70% organic ingredients
  3. Natural skin care and make-up with at least 95% organic ingredients

This makes it interesting as the term ‘natural skin care and make-up’ alone is neither legally protected nor defined on a binding basis. At www.natrue.org, you can find the certifications given to the individual Dr. Hauschka Skin Care and Make-up products for complete consumer transparency.

Go to Brand Directory Dr. Hauschka and click on the product image below. For example when you check Rose Day Cream you’ll see it’s certified to Level 3 – Natural skin care with at least 95% organic (and/or biodynamic) ingredients.

Please note: We have a preference for biodynamic ingredients, these are classed as ‘organic’ ingredients for certification.

Look for the NATRUE label for your consumer guarantee that products are genuinely natural and organic. NATRUE certifies the entire product formula, not just one or two ingredients in that formula. Furthermore the entire formula is completely audited from supplier to finished product once every two years. Wherever available, we procure our ingredients from biodynamic or controlled organic farming. If an organic version of a raw material is not yet available on the global market, we initiate organic cultivation partnership projects.

You can count on our products being free from synthetic chemical fragrances, dyes and preservatives, mineral oils, parabens, silicones and PEGs.

We do not, or ever have, or outsourced, any testing on animals, we test on happy to help out human volunteers.

There is more to quality than good raw materials

Our formulas depend on the high quality of the natural raw materials – but also on the care with which they were grown and processed. By using biodynamic agriculture, we actually put more into the soil than we take out. We believe biodynamically grown plants are the highest in vitality and it’s this vitality we wish to transform for your skin.

In Dr.Hauschka skin care and make-up, the ingredients come together to form complex compositions made up of more than just the sum of their components. Only when their ingredients interact and are supported by our unique rhythmic manufacturing procedure do our products take on their very special quality that enables them to stimulate your skin’s natural activity.
