A Unique Skin Care Philosophy
As the protective covering of the body, the human skin is exposed to many influences from within and without which can impair its functioning and appearance. This can result in unbalanced skin reactions such as dryness, lack of moisture or the overproduction of oil, and ultimately in premature aging.
Dr. Hauschka Skin Care regards these changing skin conditions as transient skin states and does not divide the skin into static types. By addressing the skin as a holistic organ and stimulating its natural functions, Dr.Hauschka Skin Care products encourage the skin to exercise its powers of self-regeneration.
Dr. Hauschka Skin Care makes a wide range of personal care products and cosmetics:
→ Face Care
→ Hair Care
→ Body Care
→ Decorative Cosmetics
This is a hygienic precaution since Dr. Hauschka Skin Care does not use synthetic, chemical preservatives.
Cleansing Cream - a composition of almond meal and medicinal herbs for daily use – is the gentle cleanser for all skin states. It has skin-strengthening and moisturising properties and stimulates the skin's natural self-cleansing powers. Can be used mornings and evenings.
Soothing Cleansing Milk - a tenside-free, mildly replenishing cleansing emulsion specially for delicate, dry and sensitive skin. Can also be used as make-up remover for all skin states.
Facial Toner - a basic toner that supports normal, dry or sensitive skin and skin in need of regeneration.
Clarifying Toner - a special herbal lotion that regulates blemished, greasy, large-pored skin prone to inflammation.
Spray the skin with the appropriate toner in the morning after cleansing and before applying your regular day-care product. Apply the toner again in the evening after cleansing unless you are using Renewing Night Conditioner, in which case you should omit the toner in the evening and apply Renewing Night Conditioner instead.
Regenerating Serum - an oil-free day and night care product that meets the needs of demanding, mature skin. The serum supports the moisture-binding capacity of the skin, strengthens and vitalises the functions of mature, demanding skin. Apply in the morning to the cleansed skin before applying your day care product. Use in the evening as oil-free night care after a course of treatment with Renewing Night Conditioner.
The conditioners are oil-free intensive care products for the night which have a normalising action on the various skin states. We recommend using Renewing Night Conditioner in the form of a 28-day course of treatment during which the conditioner is applied to the face every evening after cleansing. Apply 2 ampoules each evening during the first 3 weeks and then just 1 ampoule per evening during the last week. The course of treatment can be repeated several times a year. The recommended number of treatments is one for every 10 years of your age (e.g. 3 treatments a year for someone aged 30).
Dr. Hauschka Renewing Night Conditioner - normalising intensive care for the night As night care product, Dr. Hauschka Renewing Night Conditioner has a normalising action on skin states characterised by excessive dryness or oiliness or proneness to premature wrinkling or sensitivity. Its oil-free formula stimulates the skin's metabolic activity which is particularly pronounced at night. The natural skin functions are activated. Dry skin learns to produce and retain oil and moisture again. Sensitive skin is strengthened. In oily, blemished skin excessive production of oil and dead skin cells is reduced. Skin prone to premature wrinkling is given new tone and elasticity.
Dr. Hauschka Sensitive Care Conditioner – Strengthening intensive care for the night The valuable herbal extracts and minerals contained in dilute rhythmised form in Dr.Hauschka Sensitive Care Conditioner have a strengthening action on the skin.
Dr.Hauschka Soothing Intensive Treatment is specially formulated for hypersensitive skin. It helps the skin protect itself, soothing and strengthening irritated, reddened and sensitive skin. It improves the skin’s resistance and causes the signs of stress to quickly fade away. The result: skin that feels relaxed and harmonious.
The Dr.Hauschka Regenerating Intensive Treatment and Intensive Treatment for Menopausal Skin supplement the basic care of mature skin and provide an additional normalising impulse.
Regenerating Intensive Treatment is specially formulated to meet the needs of demanding mature skin which needs an additional normalising impulse to stimulate the regenerating powers of the skin. It hydrates, smoothes and vitalises the skin. The complexion becomes noticeably more refined and takes on a radiant, soft and well cared for appearance.
Intensive Treatment for Menopausal Skin is specially formulated to meet the needs of skin during menopause which often appears red and blotchy due to hot flushes and pigmentation (age spots). It preserves and enhances the skin's regenerating powers and counterbalances its declining vitality. The skin feels strengthened, soft and well cared for.
Skin ageing is a natural process. It cannot be stopped. But skin care which supports the skin’s natural functions can slow it down. Dr.Hauschka Regenerating Serum and Regenerating Day Cream give mature, demanding skin the right support for more vitality and strength to meet the demands of everyday life. The skin takes on a radiant, soft and well cared for appearance.
The Dr. Hauschka Regenerating Neck and Décolleté Cream is specially designed to meet the needs of demanding, mature skin in the neck and décolleté area. Its short and long term hydrating action helps reduce wrinkles and lines caused by dryness. The cream makes the skin feel firm, refines the skin structure, is fast-penetrating and intensively moisturising.
Dr. Hauschka Eye Balm is suitable for dry and sensitive skin around the eyes and skin prone to premature lines and wrinkles. The eye balm smoothes, moisturises and protects the delicate eye contour area.
Dr. Hauschka Daily Hydrating Eye Cream is suitable for all skins and for skin prone to premature lines and wrinkles. The eye cream is soothing, refreshing and hydrating, relieves irritation and is readily absorbed.
Dr. Hauschka Regenerating Eye Cream is suitable for demanding, mature skin in the over-40s with increasing formation of wrinkles and lines and diminishing elasticity. The regenerating eye cream reduces wrinkles and lines caused by dryness, reduces wrinkle depth, makes the eye contours tangibly firmer, smoothes and refines the skin structure and aids moisture retention by the skin.
As men can have different skin conditions too the recommendations given in the Face Care Plan apply equally to men and women.
After shaving we particularly recommend
→Facial Toner for normal, dry or sensitive skin
→Clarifying Toner for skin with a tendency to ingrown beard hairs, inflammation and excessive oiliness
Yes, Dr. Hauschka Skin Care also has an exclusive product range for special skin problems which is available only from Dr.Hauschka Estheticians. The esthetician can make a precise skin diagnosis and give you professional advice.
The Dr.Hauschka skin care preparations are attuned to the needs of every skin state. Use them individually or in combination. But remember that the skin is a living and constantly changing organ and that you may have to modify your skin care accordingly.
Revitalising Day Cream (for normal or dry skin) - a light, activating, moisturising emulsion for men and women which restores the oil and moisture balance of the skin. Revitalising Day Cream is the preferred moisturiser for dry skin. It stimulates production of oil by the sebaceous glands, binds the moisture already present in the skin and thus corrects dry and moisture-depleted skin. (Not suitable for couperose skin prone to broken or dilated capillaries.)
Rose Day Cream (fortifying, protecting day care for reddened, sensitive, moisture depleted skin in need of regeneration) - a rich day cream which promotes regeneration of the epidermis and increases the resilience of skin that is sensitive and prone to blotchiness. It also regulates the oil and moisture balance of the skin. Use Rose Day Cream to give additional protection against environmental influences. It can be applied on top of Moisturising Day Cream, for example.
Rose Day Cream Light (soothing, protecting day cream for dry, moisture-depeleted and sensitive skin) - The many facets of the harmonising and revitalising rose are composed into a smooth, readily absorbed day cream. The result is a moisture-regulating and regenerating day cream for dry, moisture-depleted and sensitive young skin.
Regnerating Day Cream (smoothing, regenerating day cream for mature, demanding skin) - The composition of high-grade plant oils and herbal extracts gives demanding, mature skin the impulse to use its own powers of regeneration. The protecting day cream reduces dryness wrinkles, refines and smoothes the complexion. It supports the toning and form-giving powers of the skin and gives it a radiant, soft and well cared for appearance.
Quince Day Cream (for normal skin) - The action of Quince Day Cream is modelled on nature. It is a light, refreshing, hydrating day care product for men and women, which helps to maintain the skin's balance and keep it healthy.
Melissa Day Cream (for sensitive, combination skin; calms, balances, manages shine): helps balance sensitive, combination skin while reducing the appearance of minor blemishes for a smooth, even complexion. This moisture-rich day cream features extracts of melissa, anthyllis and witch hazel to refine the complexion, soothe skin, control shine and help dry skin retain moisture.
For blemished, inflamed skin we recommend the following skin care regime. We also recommend you see a Dr.Hauschka Esthetician for a full consultation.
Cleansing Cream: gentle cleansing for morning and evening.
The Cleansing Cream is the basis for successful skin care. Selected herbal extracts in an almond base strengthen the skin. The Cleansing Cream refines the pores, promotes elimination of waste products and clarifies the skin.
Clarifying Toner: regulating basic care product.
The special composition of medicinal herbs makes Clarifying Toner an effective skin care product for oily skin prone to blackheads and inflammation. Daily use of the toner also shrinks large pores.
Renewing Night Conditioner: normalising intensive care product (night care).
Stimulates the natural skin functions and normalises oil and moisture production, promotes healthy skin renewal.
Clarifying Day Oil: normalising day care product.
That regulates the activity of the sebaceous glands. The oily extracts help the skin to correct its sebum production. Pores are visibly refined, inflammation subsides and the skin is soothed. Also protects against the effects of the weather.
Clarifying Clay Mask: clarifying intensive care.
Has anti-inflammatory properties and promotes elimination; the deep-cleansing, clarifying action helps remove blackheads and dead skin.
Revitalising Mask: regenerating intensive care product.
Reduces inflammation, regenerates, has gently clarifying action.
The harmonizing effect of the Dr.Hauschka Revitalising Mask makes it a suitable intensive care product for all skin conditions. It stimulates the intrinsic activity of dry skin, gently clarifies blemished, open-pored skin, soothes sensitive, allergy-prone skin and moisturizes normal skin. Treat your skin to this intensive care experience. It will thank you with a smooth, firm complexion and an even appearance and texture.
The Dr. Hauschka Firming Mask provides nourishing, intensive care for people of 30 and above as the skin becomes drier and starts to lose its elasticity and capacity for regeneration. The rich mask restores elasticity and leaves the skin feeling smooth and fortified. The result is a soft, silky complexion.
With its moisture-balancing properties, the relaxing Dr.Hauschka Soothing Mask helps sensitive skin that is prone to reddening to regain its natural balance. The result: a healthy, even complexion – and a sense of inner well-being.
This moisture-balancing intensive care product preserves the skin's natural, protective hydrolipid mantle and restores life to dry, sensitive and mature skin in need of regeneration.
Clarifying Clay Mask
This Clarifying Clay Mask has healing, soothing and regenerating action. The clarifying intensive care gently removes blackheads and callus and stimulates the skin's healthy powers of elimination.
Titanium dioxide is obtained from illmenite (ilmenite, naturally occurring rock). Titanium dioxide is a pigment with high opacity and recognized excellent skin compatibility. We use it in our decorative cosmetics as an opaque color pigment in a not nano-sized form.
At Dr. Hauschka Skin Care we attach great importance to sustainable production of our raw materials. We therefore take every care to source as many as possible of the plant oils we use from certified organic growers. This also applies to the organic palm oil also it plays a fairly minor role in our products, since it is an ingredient only in our Cover Sticks 01-03. Annually we use only approx. 50 kg organic palm oil in our Dr.Hauschka Skin Care products. For comparison: in the same period we need over 25,000 kg of organic sunflower oil.
As we are aware of the problems associated with oil palm monoculture in Indonesia and Malaysia we have made a conscious decision not to buy palm oil from South East Asia. Instead we have chosen an organically certified supplier from South America in whom we have a reliable partner who is genuinely concerned about sustainability, observes the strict criteria of environmentally sound production and takes into account various aspects of nature conservation in the production of palm oil.
But we are also aware of the problems associated with emulsifiers/tensides from conventionally produced palm kernel oil, although we do have a realistic picture of the current market situation. Even when asked directly, the suppliers of some of the emulsifiers/tensides that can be used for natural cosmetics do not specify precisely which starting materials they use. Therefore we prefer to use emulsifying substances which do not come from palm oil (lecithin, wool fat, coconut derivatives). Moreover, in the few instances where this is not the case we use emulsifiers from RSPO-certified palm oil wherever possible (available).
In addition we are in close contact with our suppliers and continue to work towards replacing the emulsifiers currently still obtained from palm oil by emulsifiers made from other raw materials. For example, a few years ago the purchasing department of Dr.Hauschka Skin Care succeeded in persuading a glycerin manufacturer to produce glycerin from organic coconut oil instead of conventional palm oil and to supply this to WALA. The price we have to pay for the palm-oil-free organic raw material obtained in this manner is about ten times the world market price for the conventional product. However, as the idea of environmental protection and promotion of organic farming is firmly anchored in our company philosophy we consider this a worthwhile investment. In this way we support small farmers who grow organic coconuts and thus given them a long-term perspective as reliable purchasers of their sustainably and organically grown product.
We ourselves have never done any testing in animals and will not do so in the future either.
You can be absolutely certain that none of the Dr. Hauschka Skin Care products or any of the raw materials used in their manufacture have been tested on animals – either by us or by anyone else on our behalf. The raw materials and manufacturing processes we use are such that all the products can be safely tested on volunteers during development. We also believe that these tests are far more informative than any tests performed on animals.
Small quantities of Certified Organic food-grade, gluten-free ethyl alcohol (ethanol) which is derived by a fermentation and distillation process from grain, fruit or vegetables is used by Dr. Hauschka Skin Care in some of its preparations.
Many plants essences are extracted in alcohol because this process enables us to obtain the widest variety of plant constituents. Alcohol also serves as a natural emulsifier, preservative and carrier, helping ingredients penetrate the skin.
The alcohol is not drying to the skin when it is used as part of a carefully formulated Dr.Hauschka Skin Care composition.
Dr.Hauschka cosmetics are all made using carefully-crafted recipes that have often been successfully used for years. This means that some products have remained almost unchanged for decades. At the same time however, our understanding of the skin and natural substances is constantly developing and we do not want to rule out using new, interesting ingredients. On the other hand, raw materials that already exist on the market can sometimes change and no longer meet our high quality requirements. We also have to respond to changes to the legal requirements relating to cosmetic products.
As a result, slight modifications are occasionally made to a product’s recipe and declaration of contents/INCI. Changes to recipes at Dr.Hauschka are always used to maintain or further optimise their existing quality. The ingredients have never and will never be changed for cost reasons. Any changes to the recipe are always evident in the INCI declaration on the packaging.
Yes, in combination with the right day care product as foundation. The Dr. Hauschka Foundation is also excellently tolerated and offers additional protection against environmental influences. Dr. Hauschka Foundation is available in five different shades.
Yes, the mascara is ophthalmologist tested and the choice of ingredients makes it very well tolerated and suitable for contact lens wearers.
Gluten in Dr. Hauschka Skin Care products is limited to those products that contain Fermented Grain Extract or Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, which include Dr.Hauschka Jojoba and Marshmallow Conditioner, Soothing Cleansing Milk and the former Body Washes. Those products should not be used by those with gluten or wheat allergy. Some Dr.Hauschka products contain the wheat-derived ingredients wheat germ oil, wheat bran extract, tocopherol and alcohol. During the manufacture and processing of these ingredients, gluten is removed, therefore they can be considered gluten-free.*
According to this, we hereby confirm that the following Dr.Hauschka products can be considered as gluten-free*:
* As defined by European regulation EG No. 41/2009

Talcum is a natural hydrous magnesium silicate (soapstone), which is used in the Dr. Hauschka pressed powders. It gives the products an excellent lubricity, so that the powders can easily be removed and distributed evenly on the skin. Talcum is a well-proven ingredient and is not only used in cosmetics but also in food or pharmaceutical products.
Previously, talc was often contaminated with asbestos during mining and was therefore considered hazardous by inhalation of high amounts of dust. Unfortunately, this gives talcum an unjustifiable bad reputation until today. Nowadays, the problem is well aware and deposits are regularly checked for asbestos freedom. For the Dr. Hauschka cosmetics we use solely talcum of highest quality and purity and regularly check the freedom of asbestos by independent testing laboratories. Additionally, due to the pressing process, the talcum is tightly bound to the oily ingredients, so that the formation of dust is only minimal. The inhalation of such small amounts of talcum is absolutely harmless. All scientific committees have classified talcum as safe cosmetic ingredient.
Also, the talcum contained in the Dr. Hauschka powders does not clog the pores due to its larger size. The talcum is remains on the surface of the skin and will be removed during the daily cleansing of the skin.
The ingredients of the Dr.Hauschka Skin Care are mainly of vegetable origin. Also, glycerol, stearic acid or other fatty ingredients are obtained only from plant materials.
The following ingredients are of animal origin: Beeswax, Lactose, milk protein - hydrolyzed, Propolis, honey, silk powder, royal jelly, honeycomb, freshwater pearl, lanolin and carmine as a coloring agent in our decorative line.

Dr. Hauschka skin care creams all have a pH value ranging from slightly acidic to neutral. They are designed this way to support and maintain the skin's physiological pH value without disturbing the outer layer's natural barrier function. The night time skin care products (conditioners) are alkaine products that support the skin's overnight regeneration process. The body washes are also slightly alkaline.
