A Sustainable Treasure Trove
When manufacturing their natural skin care products, they search the world over for renewable resources that offer them abundant quantities of high-quality ingredients while also benefitting the earth and the local communities that work the land. To serve that purpose, they rely on and respect the natural cycles of the planet using ecologically-sustainable and socially-responsible business practices.
Nowhere at Dr. Hauschka are the natural cycles of the planet more prevalent than in their very own biodynamic plant garden:
- With an area of just over 11 acres, they grow approximately 150 different nurturing plants using biodynamic methods.
- They carefully cultivate varieties of plants from precious roses to common daisies to kalanchoe.
- They obtain almost all of the seeds for the next year’s cultivation from their own plants.
- They tend to more than 25 compost heaps, converting plant debris into high-quality soil.
And they are delighted when other animals make their home in the garden along with their bee colonies—their plants do not thrive in monocultures, but in a diverse biotope.
Sourcing Beyond the Garden
Unlike botanicals like calendula and nasturtium, some plants flourish in their native habitats where they can best develop their natural qualities. Eyebright is one such plant. To source this botanical, they commission a wild collector (with a permit from the local environmental authorities) to harvest wild eyebright in the southern Vosges Mountains at an altitude of over 3,900 feet. They do so using a very conservative and conscientious approach: They never harvest the entire meadow and regularly change the collection sites, ensuring that natural growth is not depleted while still obtaining enough eyebright for Dr. Hauschka Eye Revive, Eyeliners and Mascaras.
Biodynamic and Organic Sourcing
Wherever available, they source their ingredients from biodynamic or organic farms. If an organic version of a raw material is not yet available on the global market, they initiate organic farming projects. In India, for example, they supported the non-governmental organization Satvik with the organic certification of castor oil farmers so they can purchase organic castor oil.
Partner Companies Around the World
Whenever possible, they obtain their raw materials from biodynamic or controlled organic cultivation. They have strong partnerships with many suppliers, including a shea butter cooperative in Burkina Faso, castor oil producers in India and rose growers in Turkey and Afghanistan, where they are working with the World Hunger Organization to offer approximately 700 farmers the opportunity to earn income using organic rose cultivation methods rather than turning to opium production.

A Fusion of Pharmaceutical Standards, Handiwork and Technology
Their employees pass through two airlock gates to enter the manufacturing section of the building where Renewing Night Conditioner ampules are filled in accordance with the hygiene regulations for pharmaceutical products in Germany. A constant downward air stream protects the valuable ampules against dirt. These ampules contain the plant extracts rhythmically processed from the botanicals hand-picked by their gardeners.
This is one example of the exacting pharmaceutical standards to which they hold the production of their natural skin care products. These are the very same standards WALA Heilmittel, the manufacturer of Dr. Hauschka Skin Care, holds in the making of their homeopathic medicines.
The manufacturing processes of Renewing Night Conditioner is also emblematic of the combinations of manual work with precise technology, and natural rhythms with automated systems that are typical of the systems employed to create all Dr. Hauschka Skin Care products. Dr. Rudolf Hauschka himself paved the way for this approach—he was not only an avid chemist, but also an avid observer of the natural world. This same thought process also induced him to develop a procedure for preserving nurturing plants without the use of alcohol.
Dr. Hauschka's Extraction Procedure
With his rhythmitised, water-based plant extracts, Rudolf Hauschka developed groundbreaking new pharmaceutical manufacturing processes. Even today, they still use his original procedure to produce their extracts: They chop freshly harvested plants, mix them with water for seven days, subject them to polarities of light and darkness, warmth and cold, and rest and movement, then press and filter them, sometimes adding a little ash to the pressed residues. The extract now contains the essence and the beneficial properties of the plant – and can be preserved for many years. The manufacturer of Dr. Hauschka Skin Care’s name reflects their special manufacturing methods: WALA stands for Warm Ash and Light Ash.
A rhythmical manufacturing procedure is also used to create oil extracts and aqueous alcohol-based essences for their skin care products. During this procedure, the oil extracts are subjected to a warming stimulus. Dried plant components, such as rose buds, are carefully transformed into oil at a temperature of 98.6oF, human body temperature.
Depending on the formulation, they mix the plant extracts, essences and tinctures with high-quality waxes and oils to produce ready-to-use products. Out of principle, they forgo using any chemical or synthetic fragrances, dyes or preservatives. Precise details of the ingredients and extraction procedures used can be found in the product descriptions on this website so you know precisely what ingredient is used in the formulation of your favorite products.

Pioneers and "Rebels"
The manufacturer of Dr. Hauschka Skin Care began exclusively as a developer of natural medicines in 1935. In the early days of its history, the company was considered avant-garde and pioneering in a society that was barely aware of homeopathic preparations.
This was not the case everywhere. Anthroposophic doctors were one of the primary groups to enthusiastically seize upon Rudolf Hauschka’s procedure for producing natural medicines without using alcohol as a preservative. The demand for his preparations encouraged Dr. Hauschka to establish his company in 1935 and open subsidiaries in Vienna and London shortly thereafter. Following a ban by the Nazi Party and the imprisonment of Dr. Hauschka and his future wife Dr. Margarethe Stavenhagen, the company was relocated several times before finally settling in Bad Boll/Eckwälden in 1950, where its offices, gardens and farms remain today.
Natural Skin Care Products with a Rebellious Streak
For years, Dr. Hauschka considered launching a natural skin care range to complement his medicines, however, his ideas only became a reality in the early 1960s when he met Elisabeth Sigmund, an esthetician who had been using WALA remedies in her own skin care products. At Dr. Hauschka’s invitation, Elisabeth Sigmund travelled to Eckwälden from her home in Stockholm to work with Dr. Hauschka’s experts to develop facial care products that support skin health as a means of achieving beautiful skin. They jointly created solutions for stable cream bases without chemical and/or synthetic emulsifiers and scented with natural essential oils. The first products were launched in 1967 and four years later, Elisabeth Sigmund trained the first Dr. Hauschka Esthetician in what became known as the Dr. Hauschka Classic Treatment, the foundation of all the Signature Treatments that have followed.
The revolutionary and novel concepts Elisabeth Sigmund and Dr. Hauschka developed in the 1960s are now the standards by which superior natural skin care products are defined today.
Dr. Hauschka Skin Care remains highly committed to the pioneering spirit of its early days. In 1999, the company launched a natural make-up line that enhances a woman’s natural beauty while nourishing her skin. Over the past decade, the Regenerating line of products has been introduced for mature skin, body and bath products have been reformulated to complement the needs of people today, and their packaging has been given a new look that shows an appreciation for their past while looking to the future. And there are many good things to come.
A Company Dedicated to Dr. Hauschka's Mission
In a time when it is all too common for companies to be bought and sold and the founder’s principled mission lost to fulfilling the expectations of investors, Dr. Hauschka Skin Care, Inc., the distributor of Dr. Hauschka Skin Care in the U.S. and Mexico, is uniquely structured to make decisions that are in line with the original mission Dr. Rudolf Hauschka set for his company in 1935 “to support the healing of humankind and the planet.”
Modeled after the foundation established by WALA Heilmittel, the manufacturer of Dr. Hauschka Skin Care products, their company is a for-profit business held inside a nonprofit corporation with no trustees or beneficiaries. What this means is that the company can’t be bought or sold by individuals or corporations.
As reported in Fast Company (12/08), Dr. Hauschka Skin Care, Inc. “looks like a nonprofit but isn’t one. It makes money, and it pays taxes. It is governed by a four-member board . . . [whose] charge is to see that the company complies with Hauschka’s long-standing mission ‘to heal.’ The articles of incorporation prohibit board members from receiving any financial gain for their role, in salary or dividends. They also prohibit the sale of Hauschka’s distribution rights. Without owners to collect dividends, all net profits are reinvested in operations, sustaining development.”
