About Dr Hauschka Skin Care  

Dr Hauschka is a premium skin care line formulated to the highest standards. Using a holistic approach to skin care, Dr Hauschka keeps the big picture in mind. Every plant or mineral ingredient chosen for inclusion into their range of personal care products is based on the ingredients' individual effect and the way it interacts with other ingredients. Packaging is eco-friendly, allowing for the formulation of products free of artificial preservatives. Skin care products are designed to be used as part of a healthy lifestyle supported by diet, exercise and contemplative practices (such as yoga and meditation) to reconnect us with our natural rhythms. Beauty does come from within and Dr Hauschka reflects this in their holistic approach to great skin.

Dr Hauschka: 5 Key Principles

When you use Dr Hauschka products, there are some important differences compared to other lines. The philosophy is inherent to the line, but it's up to you to decide if it makes sense for your skin.

1. Skip The Night Cream – This principle goes against conventional thinking. Dr Hauschka maintains that skin regenerates during sleep, balancing oil production and expelling impurities. It's thought that our habit of using night creams interferes with this process and over time makes skin dependent on the use of moisturizers. Dr Hauschka recommends cleansing and toning before bed, with the addition of Rhythmic Night Conditioner or Rhythmic Night Conditioner, Sensitive several times a year. Only you'll know for certain if this principle makes sense for your skin.
2. Like Treats Like Dr Hauschka applies this homeopathic principle to skin and recommends staying away from drying, soap-based ingredients or too-rich, heavy creams. Stripping soaps make skin think it is too dry, thereby producing even more oil and counter acting what you are trying to achieve. Likewise, heavy moisturizers leave skin feeling that it is producing too much oil, thereby decreasing production and perpetuating the dryness.Dr Hauschka's Normalizing Day Oil delivers a light layer of oils to help calm oily skin. Moisturizing Day Cream provides light hydration with enough moisture to prevent dryness yet not too much that oil production decreases.
3. Don't Over-exfoliate . Over scrubbing, harsh, drying or exfoliating products are no-nos in the Dr Hauschka philosophy, which maintains that these products can rob skin of its natural protection leading to dry, irritated skin.
4. Quality Ingredients Matter . Ingredients in Dr Hauschka skin care products are selected for their ability to deliver specific benefits, both individually and as part of the whole formulation. Beyond organic, Dr Hauschka incorporates biodynamic practices in the sourcing of their ingredients. Biodynamics is a holistic and sustainable form of ecologically responsible agriculture that predates even organic farming. All products are 100% Certified Natural by the BDIH, a federal association of German manufacturers of drugs, supplements, cosmetics and personal care products.
The BDIH seal assures customers of the purity and authenticity of natural products and is awarded to products that conform to the following standards:
- Organic and Biodynamic plant ingredients
- Exclusively non toxic processing methods
- No animal testing
- Socially responsible business practices
5. Skin is Smart . Dr Hauschka products are based on the foundation that skin has the ability to balance and heal itself, responding constantly to changes in our internal and external environments. A little help along the way , like protection from overexposure to harsh elements, or support when it gets thrown out of balance by illness or stress will 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 the skin, supporting its return to balanced health.
