NEW Regenerating Hand Cream

Effective & Essential

  • Intensively smoothing hand care, supporting maturing skin, with an active moisturising effect.
  • Medicinal plant extracts of highly regenerative red clover, which is rich in isoflavones, aiding skin prone to premature ageing and field horsetail providing silica in support of connective tissue.
  • Bryophyllum and quince seeds stimulate skin’s moisture-activating ability, olive and avocado oils and cocoa butter support the skin’s strength and elasticity.
  • Silky soft hands and effective protection against environmental influences.
  • Strengthens your skin’s natural resilience right to the fingertips and, with regular use, stimulates its regenerative abilities.

Your hands push back the bed covers in the morning and switch off the light at night. Out in all environments, all kinds of stresses and strains such as changing temperatures and frequent washing. It’s therefore no surprise that signs of skin ageing can appear at an early stage. When this happens, your hands are particularly receptive to skin care that combines protective, nourishing, revitalising and regenerating elements.


Effective support

Our Regenerating Hand Cream contains not only rich oils and waxes that offer intensive care and protection, but also aqueous extracts that provide invigorating and moisture-activating stimuli. Studies have confirmed the effectiveness of this formulation: both good protection of the skin’s barrier and good moisture replenishment have been demonstrated. Regenerating Hand Cream absorbs easily, has a pleasant fragrance and leaves the skin feeling wonderfully silky-smooth.

A tip from our Dr. Hauschka Estheticians

Regenerating Hand Cream may also be used as a hand mask. Use delicate stroking movements to apply twice the usual amount of Regenerating Hand Cream to each hand – working from the palms to the backs of the hands to the wrists. Wrap your hands in a towel and sit back for five to ten minutes – the optimum period for the effective formulation to take full effect.

Red clover

A font of vitality and self-renewal.

A plant that flowers in almost every meadow from May to September and can be cut multiple times during this period knows the secret of renewal. The extraordinarily dynamic plant of red clover is therefore a key ingredient in the Dr. Hauschka regenerating skin care range.

1. Growth and harvesting. Red clover is grown at our own Sonnenhof Farm, using biodynamic cultivation methods.
2. Producing the essence.
A red clover extract matures in large earthenware vats for seven days, manually stirred with great vigour every morning and evening. This produces a valuable essence containing red clover’s regenerative strengths.
3. Stimuli for mature skin.
The red clover essence is used in the formulations of every single one of the regenerating skin care products. It stimulates the skin’s revitalisation, which in turn positively affects the age-induced changes.

Be beautiful

Regenerating care for demanding, mature skin
Feel good in your own skin. And show this off self-confidently: at every stage of life.

What’s your skin telling you?
If you notice that you skin is losing its elasticity, getting drier, developing wrinkles and becoming ‘thin’, then it falls within the category of ‘mature skin’. Its requirements have changed. Dr. Hauschka regenerating skin care is aware of these new requirements and addresses your skin directly. Our formulations are designed in such a way that your skin is supported but still has to remain active – can remain active.

Your cells have not forgotten anything
If there is one thing you can rely on, it is that your cells will never forget how the skin renewal process works and will always have the strength for renewal. And even if this strengthen for renewal wanes, it can still be carefully boosted again. We cannot turn back time, but we can encourage your skin to preserve moisture and feel more toned.

Renewal is the topic of every night
Dr. Hauschka uses oil-free night care. This is because your skin does not need a protective layer at night, but instead likes to breathe freely and naturally regenerate from within. This particularly applies to mature skin. As a result, our regenerating skin care range does not include a night cream, but a toning serum and intensive treatments that fortify and harmonise your skin.
One range, eight skin care products.

Compositions with valuable ingredients
Each and every product in our regenerating skin care range contains a specific composition of medicinal plants. Read more about a few of these below.

Macadamia (Macadamia ternifolia)
Complicated to grow and laborious to process, the macadamia is the world’s most expensive nut. Its oil has similar characteristics to important components of human sebum and therefore absorbs easily, preventing the skin from ageing.

Field Horsetail (Equisetum arvense)
Field Horsetail has grown on this Earth for millions of years. It is characterised by a high content of water-soluble silicic acids, which stimulate the skin’s metabolism and fortify the connective tissue.

Bryophyllum (Kalanchoe daigremontiana)
Natively found in the Tropics, bryophyllum knows how to stock up on moisture. Its leaves and stem can store water and release it if necessary – a skill that greatly benefits mature skin.

Olive (Olea europaea)
Our olive oil is of extra-virgin quality. The delicate cold-pressing process enables it to retain its character as a pure, natural product. It cares for the skin with its premium fatty acid composition and leaves it silky-smooth.

Birch (Betula alba)
As the birch turns green, spring is upon us. It represents inner and outer cleansing processes and vibrant new beginnings – both welcome signals for mature skin.
A company that resembles a flourishing garden.

Dr. Hauschka 9 Skin Facts

Skin Fact 1

Correct Cleansing – first step towards a healthy skin

Correct cleansing with products that respect your skin’s acid mantle and hydrolipid layer provides the basis for healthy skin care. Our gentle cleansing rituals also support our no night cream philosophy.

Your skin has different cleansing needs at different times of the day. Deep cleansing in the morning with Cleansing Cream using our ‘press & roll’ technique after the night time elimination activity of your skin.

Evening cleanse with Soothing Cleansing Milk to remove make-up, eye make-up and the dirt and dust your skin picks up during the day.

Skin Fact 2

Scrub the bathroom, but never your face

Never treat your skin harshly, it has to last a life time! Cleanse to remove dirt, oil and make-up without disturbing the skin’s natural line of defence, the acid mantle and the protective outer layer of skin cells. The natural 28 day skin cell cycle is treated with respect.

Soaps, lathering products, overly alkaline substances, scrubs and exfoliants (acids or gritty compounds) strip your face of this natural protection. This may result in dry, irritated or sensitive skin, more prone to sun damage, absorption of synthetic chemical products and premature signs of ageing. The skin’s acid mantle your protection against bacteria.

Dr.Hauschka Cleansing Cream gently removes dirt and oil while protecting the skin’s natural defences and stimulating healthy lymph flow. It’s not a scrub, it’s a ‘press & roll’. This encourages and supports healthy skin, and a clear, radiant complexion.

Skin Fact 3

Squeaky clean is for dishes, not your skin

That ‘squeaky clean’ feeling comes from lathering and/or overly alkaline cleansing products and that’s your sign that the acid mantle and outer layer (stratum corneum) of your skin has been disrupted.

If you have oily/blemished skin, those harsh cleansing products that make your skin ‘squeaky clean’ just make your skin produce more oil to compensate.

Screen Shot 2015-03-27 at 12.32.46 pm

Skin Fact 4

Lose the night cream, your skin will thank you for it

  • During the night your skin is regenerating, metabolising and eliminating the day’s waste, that’s one of its many functions as the largest organ in your body.
  • The night time rhythm of the skin is one of a ‘breathing out’.
  • How do you know this is happening? Because skin disorders such as eczema, shingles, chicken pox or measles are much worse during the night. How often have you woken up in the morning to be greeted by a pimple?
  • There are no environmental factors that you need to protect your skin from while you’re asleep.
  • A night cream – which is usually a heavy, expensive, occlusive substance, impedes your skin’s normal night time process.
  • Sleeping isn’t ageing!

Dr.Hauschka’s gentle cleansing rituals support our no night cream policy. Our night treatment preparations, Night Serum or Regenerating Serum, embrace regenerating plant extracts held in an aqueous solution. These allow the skin to breathe freely and overcome any weaknesses and imbalances.

At first our ‘no night cream’ guiding principle seems unusual, however within one month (a skin cell cycle) you’ll need no more convincing! 

New customers support your skin in the transition off conventional night cream use with Renewing Night Conditioner, one ampoule a night for a month, then switch to Night Serum or Regenerating Serum.

Skin Fact 5

Not all moisturisers or their application are created equal

All Dr.Hauschka Moisturisers are highly concentrated preparations, for instance our Rose Day Cream contains 30 organic or biodynamic roses and the texture is rich, encompassing protective beeswax and precious rose wax. They’re all formulated to be applied as follows:

  1. Place around a large pea size of moisturiser in the palms of your hands. (2-4 drops if you are using Clarifying Day Oil).
  2. Warm the product between the entire palms of the hands to melt the natural waxes.
  3. Apply to skin that’s still moist from Facial Toner or Clarifying Toner that you mist directly onto your skin, to hydrate, ensure even and economical application and aid absorption of moisturiser.
  4. Apply to the skin with the entirety of your palms, using both hands from the centre, outwards in the direction of lymph flow.

Skin Fact 6

‘Like treats like’, homeopathic guideline

WALA, the company that creates Dr.Hauschka Skin Care also produces around 1,000 anthroposophical homeopathic medicines. This background gives us superb medicinal, pharmaceutical and botanical knowledge. We also incorporate some homeopathic guidelines in the way we treat the skin.

Though it might seem counterintuitive to apply oil to an oily skin, it’s actually the most effective solution. The skin knows whether it’s sufficiently protected, producing more of its own oil when skin is dry and less when it’s balanced.  Drying, soap-based and overly alkaline products and conventional acne treatments may rob the skin of its defences, leaving it vulnerable to bacteria and triggering the sebaceous glands to produce even more oil.

Dr. Hauschka’s Clarifying Day Oil provides a light, rapidly absorbed layer of pure plant oils and botanical extracts, including rich in provitamin A carrot root extract, that calm the skin’s oil production while helping to treat and soothe blemishes and irritation.

On the other end of the spectrum we have Revitalising Day Cream 30ml and 100ml, a highly activating daily moisturiser that provides hydrating protection in a very light, rapidly absorbed formula.

If we treat dry skin with rich, heavy creams or oils we effectively trick our skin into believing it’s been producing too much of its own oil. In response it will decrease production, perpetuating the dry skin cycle. Revitalising Day Cream is light enough that the sebaceous glands are called upon to gently increase oil production.

Over time, the skin will regain its balance and be better able to fend for itself.  It’s all about using products to strengthen and support your skin’s own functions.

Skin Fact 7

Chemical cocktail or nature’s nip

Unknowingly most woman carry with them daily up to 500 synthetic chemicals. These pollutants are self inflicted through the use of conventional face, body, hair and make-up products. A non natural moisturiser may contain around 30 synthetic chemicals and a perfume up to 400!

WALA Homeopathic Medicines began in 1935 and Dr. Hauschka Skin Care was launched in 1967 giving us a wealth of knowledge and experience. We also draw upon centuries of herbal healing wisdom, combining traditional approaches with modern pharmaceutical processes to create gentle yet effective natural skin care products that work with the skin holistically.

Our skin has an absolutely amazing ability to balance and heal itself, responding constantly to changes in our internal and external environments. It needs a little help along the way, like protection from exposure to harsh elements, or support when it gets thrown out of balance by lifestyle, hormones, transition, illness or stress.

The key is to encourage and strengthen your skin’s own natural self-healing processes. Rather than suppressing symptoms or interfering with the skin’s natural rhythms, Dr. Hauschka Skin Care respects your skin, supporting its return to balanced health through the highest quality ingredients from nature that your skin can understand.

The result, a typical Dr. Hauschka radiant and healthy skin!

Skin Fact 8

Being different allows us to stand out from the crowd

There is more to efficacy than high quality raw materials

Our formulations depend of course on the highest quality of the natural raw materials, but also on the care with which they were grown and processed. By using biodynamic (Demeter) agriculture, we put more into the soil than we take out and with our preference to hand harvest at dawn, we are choosing medicinal plants with the highest vitality.  It’s this vitality we wish to pass on to your skin.

Complex compositions that are made up of more than just the sum of their components.

Only when our ingredients are supported by our unique rhythmic manufacturing procedure do our products take on their distinctive quality that enables them to stimulate the skin’s own natural activity and re-establish its natural balance.

The finest of differences 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?

Our entire range is certified with the international quality seal for natural and organic skin care ‘NATRUE’. The NATRUE standard distinguishes between natural skin care, natural skin care with at least 70% organic ingredients and natural skin care with at least 95% organic ingredients.

The term ‘natural skin care’ 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 products, this is your guarantee.

Skin Fact 9

Compressing & Hydrating supports Correct Cleansing

“Using a Compress brings life to the skin, you’ll notice the difference with your cleansing, it leaves you with a clearer, softer skin”
Fay, Store Manager at Discovery Centre Rozelle

We recommend you ‘Compress & Hydrate’ prior to cleansing. This relaxes the skin and softens the walls of the pores to achieve a deeper cleanse. You will also use your cleansing products more economically.

Organic Cotton Compress
Our Compress is particularly large because the many layers folded help to retain warmth.

  1. Fold the compress in half and half again
  2. Both folds to be length wise, not square
  3. Place folded Compress into the basin with Dr. Hauschka Bath Essence infused water
  4. Squeeze excess water from the Compress
  5. Place firstly under the chin, then wrap the face and press
  6. Repeat twice, now your skin is prepared for using Cleansing Cream or Soothing Cleansing Milk 

Tip: Always complete cleanse with a compress or splash of cold water, this activates a minute muscle beside the hair follicle, contracting it, ensuring any last remaining dirt is removed. This simple technique has your skin feeling wonderfully soft, without the need for harsh exfoliation.

Cool or warm toned skin?

It’s important to know whether you have a warm or cool toned skin, because it makes it so much easier to choose the most flattering shades of Lip Colour for you.

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.

Colours  most flattering for warm toned skin
As a guide for Dr. Hauschka Lip Colours, choose from colour worlds:
red Lipsticks 10 and 11 • brown Lipsticks 13, 14, 15 • apricot Lipsticks 16, 17, 18

Colours most flattering for cool toned skin

rose Lipsticks 01, 02, 03 • pink Lipsticks 04, 05, 06 • berry Lipsticks 07, 08, 09 • and red Lipstick 12 because it’s best to choose a blue-based red lipstick, rather than a yellow-based red lipstick.
