5 Reasons to take special care of your neck and décolleté

Most of us are in a good routine with our morning cleanse, tone and moisturise ritual for our face, but are you taking the best care of your neck and décolleté? Here are the reasons you need to.

 

1) Skin in these areas produces less oil than on your face, and neglecting it may result in premature ageing.

2) Skin is thinner, with a lower adipose tissue compared to your face, which makes it prone to dehydration and dryness.

3) Side sleepers particularly may notice wrinkles on their décolleté, making it even more important to nourish and restore this area daily.

4) The angle of your décolleté to the sun may mean full UV exposure. Apply a physical barrier (zinc and/or titanium dioxide) sunscreen to protect against sun damage.

5) Neck and décolleté are exposed to environmental influences, so daily protection is required from the dehydrating and drying effects of air conditioning, pollution, sun, wind etc.

How to care for your Neck & Décolleté

1) Morning ritual: Cleanse neck and décolleté, tone, apply intensive specific care Regenerating Neck & Décolleté Cream to protect, nourish, tone and firm.

2) Apply a physical barrier (zinc and/or titanium dioxide) sunscreen and remember to reapply.

3) Evening ritual: Cleanse, tone and apply oil-free night care, Regenerating Serum.

Neck & Décolleté Treatment TIP: After cleansing and toning warm around a large pea size of Hydrating Mask between the palms of your hands and gently press onto neck and décolleté. Leave to absorb as long as possible, removing with a tepid moist cloth.

Regenerating Neck & Décolleté Cream

firms, tones and smoothes

As we age, the skin’s natural processes of renewal begin to slow and skin loses elasticity. Regenerating Neck & Décolleté Cream supports the skin’s natural regenerative functions. Skin is hydrated, refined and revitalised for a smoother, more supple appearance. Wrinkles are visibly diminished and skin looks and feels firmer.

Formulation

  • Highly regenerative and phytoestrogen rich red clover, powerful antioxidant acerola berries and whole pomegranate* are blended with rose extract to support natural skin renewal, enhance skin tone and support elasticity.
  • Ancient field horsetail, a plant rich in bioavailable silica, fortifies and firms the skin.
  • Witch hazel distillate and marsh mallow leaf extract support the skin’s moisture balance.
  • Rich in essential fatty acids and antioxidants are nourishing coconut, argan, jojoba, sesame, sweet almond, macadamia and sunflower oils.
  • Shea butter and beeswax protect your skin without being occlusive.

*Pomegranates, an age-defying ingredient

• We process the whole pomegranate fruit, including the peel for our products, obtaining a preparation that promotes regeneration of the skin.

• Pomegranate peel is an important ingredient because its extract inhibits an enzyme that is responsible for the breakdown of collagen in ageing skin.

• At the same time, the extract activates an enzyme that’s involved in the production of collagen.

• Pomegranate seed oil contained in the whole-fruit extract stimulates cell division in the keratinocytes, cells which produce the important skin-strengthening protein keratin.

Natural body care from Dr. Hauschka

Our entire body acts as a service provider for this basic 24-hour thermal rhythm, which is incidentally directly linked to our awareness.
In today’s world, however, we often lack the basic warmth – whether because our clothes are too thin or due to everyday stress. Our bodies have cooled down and this causes us problems with regard to falling and staying asleep. We remain wide-awake long into the night, perhaps yearning for a warm evening atmosphere. It’s simply impossible to fall asleep with cold feet.
We focus on natural rhythms and use natural skin care from Dr. Hauschka to help you achieve a healthy thermal rhythm. For example, when you get up in the morning, the blood vessels near the surface of your skin contract, allowing the warmth to become centred, or booting up internally. You connect to your inner self and feel awake. At this time of day, our Lemon Lemongrass products are the perfect choice for helping you feel centred and alert. When you head to bed at night, the warmth wants to flow back to the tips of your fingers and toes. Your blood vessels near the surface of the skin expand and your hands and feet warm up. A warm foot bath with a Dr. Hauschka Bath Essence in the evening assists this process. Regular foot baths can do much more than just briefly warm your feet. They help your body regulate its inner warmth with long-lasting effect.
The Bath Essences are complemented by our Body Oils, all-rounders that support our basic thermal rhythm. They can centre the warmth, release it and allow it to flow. Enjoy attentively applying a little Body Oil to your stomach or the soles of your feet. A little nightly ritual like a warm hug or a loving goodnight kiss. This is our Dr. Hauschka cosmetics culture for you.

Interview

An interview with Annette Greco, Head of Galenic Development, and Florian Junge, Group Head of Product Management for Body Care about warmth and rhythm in relation to body care

Annette, you develop various Dr. Hauschka skin care products for the face and body. Is the skin on the body different to that on the face? Won’t one cream suffice for everything?

Annette Greco: Our facial skin has very different needs to that on our body. It is an organ of the head, just like our sensory organs the eyes, mouth and nose. Rather than being highly metabolically active and warm, these are cool and associated with catabolic processes. Accordingly, our facial skin breaks down more. This is not followed by anabolic processes, explaining why our face is the part of our body where we tend to develop wrinkles. I don’t know anyone who complains about wrinkles on their thighs. However, no-one has ever said “I’ve got cellulite on my cheeks” either. My body experiences clear metabolic processes with heat development. My face experiences clear nervous/sensory processes with catabolic effect. The care products for the body and face therefore need to differ.

How do the facial and body care products differ?

Greco: When it comes to the face, I always have to strengthen the anabolic processes. With regard to body care, on the other hand, the focus is on the dynamics of warmth. When developing body care products, we ask ourselves how we can support the generation of body heat by externally applying products but also how we can distribute this heat and allow it to flow but also release it.

Florian Junge: Daily protection still plays an important role for facial care. I cover my body with clothes but my face is more exposed. I have to protect it differently. The preparation for the day ahead is different than with body care.

And what about the oil-free night care that you recommend for the face? Is this also important for the body? Should I avoid using oily body care products in the evenings?

Greco: No, that’s not necessary. If you view Dr. Hauschka as skin care that respects rhythms, the reason becomes clearer. The face and the body quite simply follow different rhythms. In the case of the face, we support the anabolic and catabolic rhythm. As the anabolic processes generally occur in the aqueous element, the anabolic night care for the face is purely aqueous. When it comes to the body, we follow this rhythm by supporting the great fluctuation in inner warmth. Body care is therefore all about warmth, which gives me a sense of inner comfort, but that I also radiate or release again. Whereas the focus for facial care products is whether or not they are oil-free, when it comes to body care, you need to see if they offer warmth. Warming products always incorporate oils. As such, you are fine to apply cream or oil to your body on an evening.

Despite this, some people still find that their skin feels drier in the morning if they have used a Body Oil the night before.

Greco: Yes. This shows us that our Body Oils not only care for the skin, but people as a whole. I therefore often apply a Body Oil followed by a Body Cream.

Dr. Hauschka Body Oils care for people as a whole? That sounds very unusual. Can you elaborate?

Greco: The Body Oils are the Dr. Hauschka products that directly address the body’s warmth. In fact, oil is nothing more than concentrated summer warmth, concentrated sunshine. The addition of medicinal plants enables the oil to be tailored to specific needs. I have to start by asking myself what I want to achieve with the oil. The six Dr. Hauschka Body Oils offer me a huge range of diversity. For example, if I want to centre warmth, I opt for Lemon Lemongrass Vitalising Body Oil, whereas Blackthorn Toning Body Oil helps me stimulate the generation of warmth in my body. I now have all of the Dr. Hauschka Body Oils at home and play with them like a keyboard. I sense what kind of oil I’m going to need for the day ahead or require at the end of each day.

That means that everyone has to find their own body care regime. Do you still focus on developing products for certain skin conditions though?

Greco: We tend to focus on the different conceptions of people instead. We’ve looked at the different human constitutions irrespective of body or facial care. How do we treat morning people with warmth and what about night owls? Which skin care rituals can be used to help people who struggle to maintain a healthy thermal rhythm? Warmth is incredibly inspirational for our work.

Is it possible for body and facial care to be separately considered at all when you are talking about people’s different constitutions?

Junge: No, but we unfortunately tend to always juxtapose facial and body care very abstractly or even present them as polar opposites. In fact, they intertwine very well. If I have a good centre and well-regulated warmth, then I also have a radiant appearance.

Greco: I’d even go a step further and really talk about the preservation of people’s health. Body care is the central element for maintaining or developing beauty. If I don’t strengthen my body’s original human destiny, I can do as much as I want to my face but my actions will have no effect. I can promote true beauty by caring for my body on a level that goes beyond simple skin care. This is not about saying whether the skin looks less flaky or has one more area of cellulite. This can be an aesthetic side-effect. It is about something that really makes people special as humans and about caring for this. And ultimately about something that leads to outer beauty via our inner being.

Nowadays, many people spend all day working at a computer and experience the sensation of their head getting ever warmer but their hands and feet ever colder. Can the right body care help with this?

Greco: Moor Lavender Calming Body Oil helps me in the mornings by offering me enveloping protection. In the evening, a foot bath with Moor Lavender Calming Bath Essence helps me digest the many thoughts in my crowded mind. However, body care is no substitute for me consciously focussing on myself. To believe that quickly warming my hands would make everything good would be a mere substitution. I need stimuli to help me independently restore my natural warmth balance. Cold hands are not my basic problem. The basic problem is that I have lost the sense of self-attention that shows me what is and isn’t good for me. When it comes to body care, for me it’s about restoring a sense of self-awareness.

Is the way I treat myself, listen to my body and care for myself part of the Dr. Hauschka cosmetics culture?

Junge: I believe so, yes. People today yearn to return to a skin care culture. But not through the profusion of applications offered by the spa industry. A sense of wellbeing can instead be created through omission, by me consciously enjoying something rather than just subjecting myself to a huge range of applications. The Dr. Hauschka products can help me experience situations with a sense of mindfulness. That is what I regard as this cosmetics culture that preserves good health or something that can help people as a life companion while also being contemporary. For me, it essentially comes down to the desire for mindfulness and to learn to be in touch with my body again. Perhaps it is also a cultural task.

Greco: Culture means nothing more than designing things. And I don’t have to paint pictures or make stone sculptures to do this. It’s also about shaping my own biography, my own everyday life. This is what I regard as culture. And when the manner in which I use skin care products can act as a stimulus for paying myself some attention and taking on a truly active design role, this is what I regard as cosmetics culture. But it’s also about my awareness towards the environment. For me, Dr. Hauschka cosmetics culture includes a sense of responsibility to nature, for processes and for applications. As well as taking responsibility for myself again and radiating senses of warmth, sociability and enthusiasm. After all, the way I treat myself can also impact my encounters with other people.

Product Manager Florian Junge recommends a relaxing foot bath before bed

“I can’t get to sleep when my feet are cold. I therefore give myself a foot bath while sitting back and relaxing. I close my eyes and simply enjoy the experience for as long as I like. In total silence with no distractions.
If I want, I can also use Lemon Lemongrass Vitalising Bath Essence for an invigorating foot bath after hiking or prepare for foot and nail care through a foot bath with Rose Nurturing Bath Essence.”

First Love

Limited edition special size Cleansing Cream & Rose Day Cream

When the first Dr. Hauschka products appeared on the market in 1967, the concept of a natural skin care range that promotes healthy skin was something entirely new.

Now, in 2017, Dr. Hauschka is celebrating its 50th Anniversary. As a thank you, we are offering Cleansing Cream and Rose Day Cream in limited edition larger anniversary sizes with 17% savings.

Cleansing Cream

The delicate aroma and pure, fresh feel it gives to the skin have made our Cleansing Cream a customer favourite for many years. The concentrated ‘cream’ is recommended for cleansing any skin condition and the perfect choice for a deep cleanse in the morning after the night time elimination activities of your skin. The lipid-replenishing composition with calendula, chamomile, St. John’s wort, anthyllis and almond gently invigorates and cleanses the skin. The appearance of pores is minimised.

  • Refines, revitalises and deeply cleanses all skin conditions.
  • Gentle and effective morning cleanser for deep cleansing after the skin’s night time eliminating activities.
  • Respects the pH (acid mantle) protective function, and hydrolipid layer of skin while cleansing.
  • Almond meal binds particularly well to dirt and impurities.
  • Gently exfoliates only those skin cells that are ready to slough off.
  • Fortifies and refreshes.
  • Prepares skin for Toner and Moisturiser.

Repeat the press and roll action 2-3 times. Do not rub or scrub. Rinse with warm water then finish with splashes of cool water.

50 years of Dr. Hauschka cosmetics culture

Skin Care Concept

As a result, we have developed individual skin care plans for the various different skin conditions. All of these share the commonality of three skin care steps at night (cleanse, tone and revitalise with serum) and the nourishing trio in the morning. This trio of cleansing, toning and moisturising is optimally tailored to the skin’s morning and day time needs. Cleansing removes the excess metabolic products that the skin has excreted over night. In the second skin care step, aqueous medicinal plant preparations tone the skin while a select daytime skin care product moisturises it and protects it against environmental influences during the day.

But that’s not all. You make as much of a difference to the success of your skin care as the Dr. Hauschka products themselves. “People need two kinds of beauty – inner and outer.” Elisabeth Sigmund, co-founder of Dr. Hauschka Skin Care, was well aware of this. It all starts with the way in which you use the Dr. Hauschka products and establish a dialogue with both these and your skin. After all, the key to your beauty lies in paying yourself some attention.

Interview with Barbara Becheru

Face Care Product Manager at WALA Heilmittel GmbH and Dr. Hauschka esthetician, about the special use of Dr. Hauschka daytime skin care

Barbara, you are both a product manager and a Dr. Hauschka esthetician. That’s quite unusual. How did it come about?

I had an eye-opening experience during a Dr. Hauschka skin care treatment. As the Dr. Hauschka esthetician was treating my face, she commented that my feet were often cold. She could see this in my face! At the time, I was already a Dr. Hauschka product manager but the further training enabled me to delve deeper into the Dr. Hauschka product and treatment cosmos. In doing so, I realised that our treatment and our products simply belong together. After all, Elisabeth Sigmund, co-founder of Dr. Hauschka Skin Care, initially developed the products in her beauty studio for treating her customers.

So can I only use Dr. Hauschka Skin Care products with the aid of an esthetician?

No, of course not. It’s far more about doing something good for yourself with your everyday skin care; giving yourself a treatment and paying yourself some attention. It’s all to do with self-appreciation and self-care. And that begins in the morning with a special kind of facial cleansing. The basic product for this is Dr. Hauschka Cleansing Cream with almond meal and medicinal plant extracts. It’s applied in a unique press and roll manner (see video below) and acts as an example of how closely our products are linked to our treatment.

What exactly do you mean by a cleansing product that is linked to the treatment?

Lymph stimulation plays a central role in the Dr. Hauschka treatment. We use brushes and our hands to activate the lymph flow in the lymphatic system. This is a kind of cleansing system in the body, which excretes excess metabolic products for example. We therefore use lymph stimulation to support the skin with its natural activities, keep it healthy and cleanse it.

But what has lymph stimulation got to do with facial cleansing at home?

By correctly applying the Cleansing Cream, you can stimulate the lymph flow in your skin. To do this, roll your hands from the top to the bottom of your face and from the centre outwards in the direction of lymph flow. The combination of the product and manner of application result in a cleansed complexion. It may initially take you slightly longer to use the product as the movements will be new to you. However, the time I take during this process is time that gives me something back.

The Dr. Hauschka skin care regime for mornings comprises three steps. Cleansing is followed with the second step of toning.

That’s right. The toning products are aqueous medicinal plant preparations, such as Facial Toner. What makes this special is that you spray it directly onto your face rather than onto a cotton pad as you would a conventional toner. Even the delicate mist of spray feels delightful. I then use my hands to gently press the product into my skin.

A further lovely way of being in touch with myself and a kind of self-treatment?

Exactly. These are the little daily rituals, the periods of time-out from everyday life, my five minutes that are mine alone. This time in the bathroom allows me to enjoy some mindfulness and consciously breathe in and exhale.

That almost sounds like a yoga workout. But I still need to start my day and I’ve not yet done the third step – moisturising.

Yes, and this is a very important step as the daytime skin care protects the skin against external influences such as the wind or dry air from air conditioning systems. It can do this through the high-quality oils and waxes that form the basis of the products. However, our daytime skin care products do more than just protect the skin. Each composition is also carefully tailored to the skin’s changing needs thanks to special medicinal plant extracts, helping it to restore its natural balance.

What do you mean ‘changing needs’? Isn’t my skin always the same? Either dry or sensitive for example?

When I talk to customers before a treatment, I’ve often noticed that they can precisely describe how their skin feels. Whether it is taut or perhaps unsettled or oily. What is interesting is that this feeling may have changed by their next treatment appointment. In winter, for example, the skin tends to be drier, or at stressful times of life, it tends to become more blemished. Depending on the skin’s varying needs, we can offer the right daytime skin care to help regulate it.

Is there also a special way of applying the daytime skin care products?

We warm the moisturising product between the palms of the hands, to melt the waxes, and apply to skin, still moist from Toner, using the palms of both hands and apply from centre outwards in direction of lymph flow and/or press gently into your skin. This is the correct way to apply and it’s a more sensual and emotional experience by paying proper attention to yourself, feeling in touch with yourself while applying the products and immersing yourself in the way you feel. The natural scent of the products furthermore conveys moods. Each morning, the same delicate scent fills my nose and gives me the space I need to enjoy my skin care. That is my daily ritual. The Dr. Hauschka products are so much more.

We are celebrating 50 years of cosmetics culture

We serve people, not markets

When Dr. Rudolf Hauschka founded WALA in 1935, he certainly asked himself these and other similar questions. And he found the answers in products obtained from nature as well as the establishment of the WALA Foundation, to which WALA Heilmittel GmbH belongs. Over time, these answers resulted in the development of a very special cosmetics culture with a clear objective: the sustainable creation of persistent values for people rather than a quick profit.

The locations in which we develop and manufacture Dr. Hauschka products are closely linked to our responsibilities towards the environment and the people we deal with. We have been based in Eckwälden since 1967 and have made a conscious decision to remain there. WALA’s biodynamic medicinal herb garden, product development facilities and product manufacturing facilities have all been located in this agricultural region in southern Germany at the foot of the Swabian Jura Mountains since the 1950s. Eckwälden is a small village where shepherds drive their flocks of sheep through. At least, that is one description of it. On the other hand, we have brought a real cosmopolitan feel to the village. For instance, when international visitors come to see us, but also when organic raw materials for our products are brought here from all over the world or we prepare the transport documents for the shipment of the over 130 Dr. Hauschka products. Shipments that will go to customers in some 40 countries worldwide.

And the WALA Foundation?

All profits generated by WALA Heilmittel GmbH initially go to the Foundation as its owner. This then invests them in the GmbH’s development. After all, its sole purpose is to promote WALA’s prosperous development. The Foundation appoints our GmbH’s management and ensures that our cosmetics culture shapes everyday business practices. It enables us to invest in not only the quality of our products but also the development of our around 1,000 employees as well as sustainable projects in both Germany and other countries from which we obtain raw materials for our products. The WALA Foundation provides us with the necessary independence and freedom to continue our responsible use of money as well as to fulfil a certain cultural mission: to develop and manufacture natural products that care for people’s skin, have healing properties and promote beauty.

An interview with Dr. Johannes Stellmann

Managing Director of WALA Heilmittel GmbH, about beauty, money as an enabling instrument and corporate responsibility

Dr. Hauschka has embodied a very special cosmetics culture since 1967. What does this involve in your eyes?

It starts with the way in which we develop and manufacture our products and continues with our skin care treatments. However, the overall driving force for our company, our origins and our use of resources are also all of a cultural nature. For me, the guiding principle is ‘different from day one’.

Different from day one? What was so different in the early days of Dr. Hauschka Skin Care?

Simply take a look at the way Elisabeth Sigmund worked. She essentially started to develop her own natural cosmetics in the early 1930s. These eventually then came onto the market in cooperation with us in 1967. If you think about it carefully, you will see that she developed these products for over 35 years before they hit shop shelves. She took a great deal of time for her work. This process was totally different to all others. Then, there are our origins. WALA was actually founded as a result of a charitable enquiry when Dr. Ita Wegman, co-founder of anthroposophic medicine, asked Dr. Rudolf Hauschka to develop medicines without any use of alcohol. These were intended for children, the elderly and the seriously ill. The result was the alcohol-free WALA medicines. This shows that we are actually a cultural organisation. We wear an economic gown but I believe that we are driven by a clearly cultural stimulus. Even our finances show that we are still a hybrid company.

WALA as a hybrid company? What does that mean?

‘Hybrid’ means that my commercial framework contains a large charitable element. This makes us very different from Bill Gates, for example, who earned a huge amount of money with monopoly pensions and then pledged to give away 90 percent of his assets. I am always intrigued at how people can divide their consciousness in such a way that they can do something to earn money and then be charitable or generous afterwards. We want to find a business structure that means we do not have to blush when the value is created. To do this, we have a different mindset from the start. We look at the creation of a product followed by its use in a different cultural arc. This charitableness that others often incorporate at the end of their life is something we make part of the here and now, of everyday practice.

You referred to WALA as a cultural organisation. That surprises me as it manufactures medicines and natural cosmetics. What makes WALA a cultural organisation?

On a basic level, the culture dictates that we regard ourselves as ‘enablers’ rather than ‘makers’ with regard to both our medicines and our cosmetics. We support healing and flourishing. We do not aim to replace or suppress the immune system with WALA medicines, but to support it. Similar applies to Dr. Hauschka Skin Care products too. We support the skin to help it return to a normal skin condition. And in doing so, we actually train it. From this perspective, we are a training institute at product level. However, this is not in the form of a service; the trainer is a product, and I find that fantastic. We are very process oriented. And we are not about instantaneousness; we are not ‘this second’ people who offer rapid-effect creams. We are about allowing things time. Our company thrives on time, for example during gradual skin care treatments that I take my time to enjoy or manufacturing processes that take time to mature. This has a cultural dimension for me.

You once said that Dr. Hauschka develops products for people, not markets. Can you elaborate?

Take our Rose Day Cream for example. This has been part of our product range since day one, since 1967. It does not have any right to eternally exist per se but I do not currently see any reason why we should remove it from the market. I also choose to ignore standard product life cycle theories, which dictate that Rose Day Cream should be removed from the product range after ten years. That is not the way we work because this product is a classic. Why? Because we develop products for people, not markets. Elisabeth Sigmund asked what people need. She never asked where a market could be found, but instead always focused on the requirements of people’s skin. This is a completely different approach. It is about needs. And this approach continues to guide us today. We start with the question of what people need rather than where there is a market that we might be able to tap into. We prefer to put our money into product development, the manufacturing process and high-quality raw materials.

It is thanks to the WALA Foundation that you have this freedom to invest the money where you choose. What is the Foundation’s role?

The WALA Foundation is the sole owner of WALA Heilmittel GmbH. It offers us the major advantage that capital cannot be taken from the company as a result of either private interests or inheritance. In other regards, however, things are far more difficult for us than for other companies because we cannot obtain equity from external sources. In other words, we cannot approach investors and ask them to join us and bring a few hundred million euros with them. That road is closed to us. We operate without a safety net.

You use the profits in a very special way and say that this money is an enabling instrument for you. Can you elaborate?

Firstly, we view money as an integral part of all activities rather than just from a profit perspective. Right from the outset in the value-added chain, we ask ourselves how we can fulfil the responsibility that we bear. For example, if I pick up a jumper in a shop and buy it, I essentially trigger a manufacturing order for the new jumper that will replace it on the shelf. This means that I cannot remove myself from being responsible for what happens in the manufacturing chain. Ten years ago, I could have said that I did not know anything about this but in today’s digital age, I can find out about the manufacturing processes. If I take this responsibility seriously and transfer it to us here at WALA, I have to think forwards from the value-added chain to the product. That means I have to pay attention to how the raw materials I buy are produced. And then, I have to look at how we actually manufacture the product. And if I have done my job well, then hopefully we will generate a profit. The question then naturally arises of how we will use this profit. It is of huge benefit to us that we do not have to serve owners. Instead, for example, we can enable new partnerships for organic raw materials, which might not be produced otherwise. This was the case with shea butter from Burkina Faso, castor oil and mango butter from India and essential rose oil from Ethiopia. Alternatively, we can enable partners to become completely independent from us. Initially, project partners often rely on us 100%. We are extremely committed to making them independent within a few years whenever possible.

It sounds like the money you put into projects is a seed that multiplies as it grows.

Most definitely. And if we stick with the idea of the sower who has to accept that not every seed will grow, this also applies to us. You could naturally see this as us wasting money, but we are wiser after doing so than we were beforehand. When I start something, I also say “yes” to failure. I cannot develop without making mistakes. These are simply part of the renewal process. I therefore always talk about the ‘error compost’. One example is our new Dr. Hauschka Make-up line, which was launched at the start of 2017. We started developing the new line in 2011 and 99% of what we did went in the bin. But if we had not done this, we would have developed something mainstream black, rectangular, circular. We would never have devised the curve of constant width as the design for the powder trays and would probably never have decided to use dark purple rather than black for the packaging.

What is your vision for Dr. Hauschka Skin Care? What does the future hold?

The principle of being ‘different from day one’ will continue to guide us. We are committed to ensuring that our products meet both our own and all legal requirements with regard to quality and safety. However, we also always say that we try to forge our own path. My conduct is shaped by the inner commitment to doing things differently to others. And this takes courage. It also fits well with our central idea of learning as we work and working as we learn. Errors, failures and mistakes form part of this. Without them, I cannot learn.

How many countries are involved in you being able to enjoy a Dr. Hauschka Lemon Lemongrass Vitalising Body Milk in your bathroom?

For example, the essential lemon oil comes from Italy and the lemongrass oil from Nepal. Field horsetail for structure-giving extracts comes from wild collections in German-speaking countries. Sage for fortifying extracts is usually grown on our Demeter farm whereas the nourishing oils found in the Body Milk come from jojoba and olives grown in Argentina and Spain respectively. Our employees combine these organic raw materials in Eckwälden to produce Lemon Lemongrass Vitalising Body Milk. Once bottled and packaged, the finished product is supplied to users in some 40 countries on all continents.
