How do you know if you have cool or warm toned skin?

Why is it important to know if you have warm or cool toned skin?

Because it makes it so much easier to choose fabric colours that look the most flattering on you, and choose shades of Lip Colour to enhance.

  • Cool toned skin (pink, red or blue undertones)
  • Warm toned skin (yellow, peachy, golden undertones)
  • Neutral toned skin (a mix of warm and cool undertones, however, most neutrals do tend to sway to either warm or cool)
The jewellery test

If gold jewellery is more flattering on you, then you have a warm toned skin.
If silver jewellery is more flattering on you, then you have a cool toned skin.

The vein test

If your veins appear greenish, then you have a warm toned skin.
If your veins appear blueish, then you have a cool toned skin.

The fabric test

If you look best in browns and off-white, then you’re warm toned.
If you look best in black and white, then you’re cool toned.

Dr. Hauschka NEW Make-up features six colour worlds that have been created for our Lip Shades: rose, pink, berry, red, apricot, and brown.

Within each colour world, we offer a light, medium and dark Lipstick, six Sheer Lipsticks and six Lip Glosses to align with our six lip colour worlds.

Beeswax

Our ingredients

Each and every one of the ingredients in our products contributes to their overall effect. Careful thought goes into the selection and sourcing of our raw materials as well as the way in which the individual ingredients are combined to form complete Dr. Hauschka products. We also adhere to the highest quality standards.

Beewax-Why-large

Why is organic beeswax an ingredient in many Dr. Hauschka products?

A burning beeswax candle reveals a great deal about the special features of beeswax. It emits a warm light and fills the room with a pleasant and comforting fragrance.

Beeswax represents warmth and structure, created from a living being. It is a highly energy-packed construction material that bees produce and, with the aid of heat, use to create their highly regular honeycombs: cells that provide the space and protective shell for new life (breeding cells) and storage (honeycomb cells).

Beeswax transfers these enveloping and warming properties to Dr. Hauschka products. It gives structure to products like the Lipsticks, provides a kind of breathable protection against external influences, retains moisture and enhances the skin’s elasticity. The skin feels protected and cared for.

Hydrating Hand Cream

Hydrating Hand Cream formulation is supplemented with beeswax. This protectively envelops the hands and potentially gives its vibrantly warm structure. Blackthorn oil extract supports the enveloping effect with extra warmth, while an extract of moisture-regulating bryophyllum is revitalising and almond oil is nourishing.

A rapidly absorbed, highly nourishing hand cream, that doesn’t leave a greasy residue for hands that are silky soft and wonderfully smooth.

Beewax-Profile-large

Raw material profile

Beeswax is a miraculous substance. Honeybees (Apis mellifera) feed on large amounts of nectar and pollen and use the nutritional value obtained to do things like create wax – a substance with an extremely high energy content. The bees consolidate the energy in their food and secrete wax scales measuring about 1 millimetre from their abdominal glands. These are then used to construct honeycombs. The wax scales are translucent like mountain crystals and as light as a feather, weighing just 0.0008 g. It takes 125,000 wax scales to produce 100 grams of beeswax.

Newly constructed natural honeycombs are almost snow white in colour. The beeswax only turns the well-known shade of yellow once the bees start to use the honeycomb structure. The wax is dyed by flavonoids from propolis and carotenoids from pollen. Overall, beeswax consists of more than 300 different substances.

Screen Shot 2016-04-20 at 11.58.46 AM

The honeycomb itself is a masterpiece of lightweight construction. It provides maximum interior space with minimal use of construction material. The bees create cylindrical cells from the insalivated wax scales and then use the warmth generated by their muscles to heat the wax to over 40°C. The wax becomes malleable and automatically takes on a hexagonal form with a thickness of just 0.07 millimetres. The heat activates enzymes in the saliva, which solidify the wax through a chemical reaction.

The completed honeycomb is formed from the combination of an ingenious construction material and heat, both of which are produced by the bees through great energy usage. To create a medium-sized beehive with 100,000 cells and some 1.2 kilograms of wax, the bees need the energy contained in 7.5 kilograms of honey.

Incidentally, all of the honeycomb cells made by a bee colony are of almost identical size. Variations are only found from colony to colony. This is an expression of a bee colony’s individual personality.

Beewax-Origin-large

Origin and processing

Dr. Hauschka Skin Care products are solely made from organic beeswax sourced from ecological beekeeping practices in Germany. The producers are subject to the strict regulations established by Demeter or Bioland, the association for organic farming. Demeter and Bioland specify, among other things, that bees must live in a natural beehive made from wood, straw or clay. Only natural dyes without wood preservatives can be used for weatherproofing purposes and no chemical/synthetic medication can ever be used to treat the bees. Demeter furthermore stipulates that bee colonies can only be multiplied through the natural process of swarming. The associations continually review the compliance with the regulations in cooperation with state-certified inspection bodies.

The beeswax is obtained by being melted out of the honeycomb. WALA/Dr. Hauschka purchases this wax in blocks straight from the beekeepers and has it carefully processed to form pellets, which are easier to use.

Beewax-Slider-01

We have a tradition of protecting bees. Bee colonies have been at home in the Dr. Hauschka biodynamic medicinal plant garden since the start of the 1980s. The bees are kept in line with Demeter regulations and allowed to swarm. The 150 medicinal plants as well as bee-friendly plants such as species of phacelia (scorpion weed) provide the bees with great nutritional variety.

Beewax-Slider-02

We also believe it’s important to support local beekeepers. As a result, it financially and scientifically supports the HOBOSPhere project run by Prof. Jürgen Tautz in Würzburg, which focusses on the development of a new kind of beekeeping. This is based on the honeybee sphere, a beehive that replicates bees’ natural home.

Beewax-Slider-03

Humans first began to use products from bees over 9,000 years ago – primarily honey. Beeswax was used for medicinal purposes, in skin care products, as fuel and for sealing containers.

Beewax-Slider-04

Bees use muscular tremors to maintain a constant average temperature of 35.5°C in the beehive, they have social skills and the ability to communicate.

Screen Shot 2016-05-23 at 12.00.46 PM

Beeswax is contained in all of the following products…

After Sun, Coverstick 01-03, Daily Hydrating Eye Cream, Defining Mascara 01-03, Eye Balm, Firming Mask, Hydrating Cream Mask, Hydrating Hand Cream, Lip Balm, Lip Care Stick, Lip Gloss 00-06, Lip Line Definer 00, Lip Liner 01-05, Lipstick 01-18, Liquid Eyeliner 01&02, Quince Day Cream, Regenerating Day Cream, Regenerating Eye Cream, Regenerating Neck and Décolleté Cream, Rose Day Cream, Rose Day Cream Light, Rose Nurturing Body Cream, Sheer Lipstick 01-06, Soothing Mask, Tinted Day Cream, Translucent Bronzing Tint and Volume Mascara 01-03.

Beauty is the exterior expression of true well-being

Even if two women are identically made up, each retains her individuality given that the colours have a different effect on everyone depending on their skin pigmentation. The diversity of colours is based on mineral pigments of natural origin, which blend in with the wearer’s own skin tone.

What’s unique about Dr. Hauschka Make-up is that it restores natural balance to the skin and adds colour without concealing natural radiance and vitality, and the fine textures ensure application with ease.

The raw materials are sourced almost exclusively from certified organic cultivation and meet Demeter and fair-trade standards whenever possible. All Dr. Hauschka make-up products are certified in accordance with NATRUE, the international standard for natural and organic skin care and make-up.

100% Natural Skin Care and Make-up

Face care, body care and make-up, all Dr. Hauschka products are 100% certified natural. Wherever possible, our ingredients are sourced from organic certified or biodynamic cultivation. For Dr. Rudolf Hauschka, founder of our company WALA, this was a matter of course. Even back in the 1960s when he and Cosmetologist and Natural Botanical Researcher, Elisabeth Sigmund developed our first skin care range, the formulations were based on natural, organic and biodynamic ingredients. Ingredients to support a healthy, balanced, toned and radiant skin.

Sustainable. Conscious. Cruelty free. Aromatic natural and organic essential oils, free from synthetic chemical fragrance. Free from parabens, sulphates, PEGs, phthalates, silicones, petrochemicals, synthetic chemical colours and preservatives.

Dr. Hauschka/WALA biodynamic medicinal plant gardens

All Dr. Hauschka products are certified natural and organic by NATRUE.

What exactly is NATRUE?

NATRUE is an international quality label for natural and organic skin care and make-up. It gives customer transparency to identify AUTHENTIC natural and organic products as the term ‘natural’ and/or ‘organic’ alone is neither protected nor precisely defined by law. Only products that meet very strict criteria are allowed to display the NATRUE label.

Three certification levels:

1. Natural skin care and make-up
The strict rules for ingredients and their processing apply. The 100% natural ingredients do not necessarily have to come from certified organic agriculture.

2. Natural skin care and make-up with an organic portion
The product is 100% natural and > 70% of the ingredients come from certified organic agriculture and/or controlled wild collection.

3. Organic skin care and make-up
The product is 100% natural and > 95% of the ingredients come from certified organic agriculture and/or controlled wild collection.

To find out the certification level of your favourite Dr. Hauschka product(s) click here, then go to THE PRODUCT SEARCH and type in the name of the product(s) you wish to check, e.g. Rose Day Cream, which you’ll find is certified ‘Organic Skin Care’ i.e. the product is 100% natural and > 95% of the ingredients come from certified organic (or biodynamic) agriculture and/or controlled wild harvesting.

This percentage-based differentiation is important as, even today, it is still not possible to fully obtain all raw materials in organic quality. In some cases, this has led to us instigating the cultivation of organic raw ingredients with our Cultivation Partnerships. Rose essential oil, mango butter, castor oil and shea butter are just a few examples.

All Dr. Hauschka products are certified according to the very high standards of NATRUE, to provide peace of mind. We’re proud to be producing natural skin care since 1967 and do so out of conviction and a responsibility to nature and your wellbeing. What could be more sustainable and effective than natural ingredients from certified organic or biodynamic cultivation obtained under fair trade conditions.

The NATRUE label is your guarantee products are 100% natural
