What we mean when we talk about rhythm

While rhythm may not feel like a necessary attribute of skin care products or methods, it plays a fundamental and crucial role in how Dr. Hauschka products are created and transform your skin.  

In the 1920s when Dr. Rudolf Hauschka was a young chemist, he met Rudolf Steiner and asked the esteemed philosopher, educator and founder of Anthroposophy, “What is life?”

Steiner offered Dr. Hauschka the advice that led him to make a groundbreaking discovery: “Study rhythm, rhythm carries life.”

Rhythm in Our Products

Inspired by Steiner’s comment, Dr. Hauschka developed a procedure exposing plants to the rhythmic powers of the natural polarities of darkness and light, warmth and cold, and movement and rest to preserve botanical extracts without the use of alcohol.

Over 80 years later, we still use this rhythmic process to produce our extracts, essences and tinctures. All the ingredients in our natural, organic, biodynamic and/or wild-harvested skin care products are processed using Dr. Hauschka’s original processing procedure to varying degrees.

This unique method preserves the high vitality of our precious ingredients and helps to ensure their benefits reach your skin in their most potent state possible.

Supporting your skin’s natural rhythms

Rhythmic activity is not an end in itself however when your skin’s natural rhythms are supported by the right products and methods, a beautiful, healthy complexion can follow.

Like all living creatures, human, plant and animal, your body recognises and experiences different rhythms:

  • Dr. Hauschka Signature Cleansing combines Cleansing Cream with a rhythmic ‘press and roll’ movement to signal and activate your skin’s natural cleansing processes.

  • Your skin naturally renews itself every 28 days. Our Conditioners, Intensive Treatments and Regenerating products are formulated to work with these rhythms to guide skin to a balanced, radiant state.

  • Your skin’s natural rhythms vary from day to night. By day, our moisturisers nourish and protect your skin when it is at its least active. At night when your skin is most active, Dr. Hauschka Toners, Conditioners and Serums harness the skin’s inherent regenerative powers so they work to greater effect and results.

  • Certified Dr. Hauschka Estheticians perform our Classic Facial Treatments using carefully orchestrated stroking of the skin to stimulate the skin’s lymphatic system from head to toe, leaving you with a sense of harmonious vitality.

By harnessing the powers of rhythm, Dr. Hauschka natural skin care products are better able to deliver their properties directly to your skin so it best benefits from their ingredients —and you can see and feel the results they provide.
