Dr. Hauschka Skin Care

WALA Heilmittel GmbH has been developing natural preparations since 1935. But in 1967 the producer of medicines also started manufacturing cosmetics. This was an unusual situation for many pharmacists in that time, when WALA offered them our first beauty care preparations.

However, the development of a cosmetics line was a logical step for Rudolf Hauschka. After all, nothing made more sense than devoting attention to the health of the largest human organ, the skin. The skin regulates our inner balance and it’s serves as a boundary to the outside world.

The core idea that shapes Dr. Hauschka Skin Care –
to stimulate or restore the skin’s intrinsic activity.

The nature of beauty

The goal was therefore to create cosmetics that were more about serving the essence than the appearance. Cosmetologist Elisabeth Sigmund (1914-2013) played a key role in the development of Dr. Hauschka Skin Care, she said: “This is the nature of beauty, that it does not hide but reveals its inner self at the surface, in the external form.”

100% Natural and Organic Skin Care with a difference

Whenever possible, Dr. Hauschka Skin Care products are made from medicinal herbs from biodynamic or certified sources or harvested in the wild, and are manufactured in accordance with natural rhythms. The aim of the preparation is to restore normality to the skin wherever it has become imbalanced and to keep it in harmony.

Whatever the condition of your skin today, Dr. Hauschka has a range of products that can help you achieve a complexion you will be happy to see in the mirror each morning.

What is special about Dr. Hauschka?

Our holistic skin care concept that supports your skin’s natural activity. Stress, hormones, changing weather, et cetera canresult 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, our products encourage the skin to exercise its powers of self-regeneration.


How can I identify ‘real natural cosmetics’?

All Dr. Hauschka Skin Care products bear the BDIH and/or NATRUE stamp. As there are not currently any legally binding specifications for the properties of natural cosmetic products in Europe, consumers need a reliable guide to help them select products. The well-known natural cosmetic stamps from the BDIH and NATRUE guarantee that products comply with specified quality criteria, e.g. that they do not contain any petroleum derivatives or synthetic fragrances, dyes or preservatives.
