Today’s modern world is full of pollutants and toxins that we expose ourselves to on a daily basis. As a result, there has been a huge trend towards more natural products, not only with beauty, but also when it comes to cleaning products for the home or even child and pet care. People are becoming very aware of what goes into their bodies or is absorbed by their skin.
One of the biggest trends when it comes to natural skincare is holistic therapy, which is treating the whole rather than just the symptoms. And if there was one man who embodied that theory, it was Dr. Rudolf Hauschka. Hailing from Vienna, Dr. Hauschka dedicated his adult life to studying natural, holistic therapies, and in 1929 he developed a game-changing method for extracting plant essences without the use of alcohol. In 1964, he met Elisabeth Sigmund, an esthetician who was researching the use of holistic treatments for the skin. They quickly became colleagues and in 1967 they launched the Dr. Hauschka line, a skincare line dedicated to balancing the skin and allowing it to heal itself.
Today, Dr. Hauschka is one of the leading skincare brands in the world and is sold in nearly 50 different countries. Their products are certified natural, with ingredients coming from ecologically and ethically sound sources, and even the packaging is free from artificial preservatives. Even celebrities like Kate Moss and Katie Holmes flock to Dr. Hauschka for safe, natural products that provide amazing results.
In case you are new to the brand, here are three of our favorite products.
Dr. Hauschka Cleansing Cream – The idea of using a cream to clean your face may sound a bit strange, but just go with it. This cleansing cream contains a hydrating blend of almond meal, calendula, chamomile, and St. John’s Wort to gently exfoliate. The creamy texture is perfect for deep cleansing your pores.
Dr. Hauschka Neem Hair Oil – A celebrity favorite, this hair oil contains Neem leaf and chamomile extract in a light base of peanut and wheat germ oils to nourish your hair and treat breakage. It also contains rosemary extract to soothe an irritated scalp and encourage hair growth.
Dr. Hauschka Almond St. John’s Wort Body Oil – Designed to give you the softest skin ever, this body oil is made from a super hydrating blend of sunflower and almond oil. A little bit of St. John’s Wort is thrown into the mix to strengthen your skin and give an overall calming effect.
