7 Facts That Will Change Your Skin

“Dr. Hauschka Skin Care – Where science and spirit meet to create holistic preparations for the skin.”


I read a lot of awesome reviews about Dr. Hauschka. So I wanted to check it out for myself at Dr. First of all I must say that I really loved the website, all their ideas and categories. And now I am thinking about trying theit products. But this article really made me think about  a lot of things. What do you think?

About the company:

Since 1967, Dr.Hauschka Skin Care has remained a very different kind of company . . .

. . . and we’ve got a lot to tell about our history, philosophy, holistic approach and unique products. Select from the menu to the left to learn more about where we come from, what we do and where we’re going. We’re happy to share our story with you, and welcome you to contact us with any questions that aren’t answered for you on this site.

We’re proud to say that the models featured on this site are our friends, family members, colleagues and customers. All of them are devoted Dr.Hauschka users.

1. Skip the night cream; your skin will thank you.

While you sleep your skin is actually hard at work regenerating itself, balancing oil production and expelling impurities. Regular application of night creams interferes with these essential tasks, and over time skin becomes less able to care for itself. Covering the skin with moisturizer 24 hours a day sends a signal to sebaceous glands to cut down on moisture production, resulting in even drier skin that becomes dependent on moisturizing products just to appear “normal.”

A Dr. Hauschka regimen allows the skin to carry on its important night work. Balanced healthy skin needs nothing more than cleansing and toning before bed. Dr. Hauschka Rhythmic Night Conditioner is a water-based formula infused with rose essential oil and dynamic plant extracts that supports renewal and balances oil production. Use it for 28 days, mirroring and supporting the skin’s natural cycle of regeneration to encourage a return to a healthy, balanced complexion.

2. Like treats like.

Though it might seem counterintuitive to apply oil to an oily complexion, it’s actually the most effective solution. The skin knows whether it’s sufficiently protected, producing more of its own oil when skin is dry and less when it’s balanced. Drying, soap-based products and oil-free acne treatments can rob the skin of its defenses, leaving it vulnerable and triggering the sebaceous glands to produce even more oil. Dr. Hauschka’s Normalizing Day Oil provides a light, clean layer of pure plant oils and botanical extracts that calm the skin’s oil production while helping to heal and soothe blemishes and irritation.

On the other end of the spectrum we have Moisturizing Day Cream, the activating daily moisturizer that provides hydrating protection in a light, fast-absorbing formula. If we treat dry skin with rich, heavy creams or oils we effectively trick our skin into believing it’s been producing too much of its own oil. In response it will decrease production, perpetuating the dry skin cycle. Moisturizing Day Cream is light enough that the sebaceous glands are called upon to gently increase oil production, but provides enough nurturing moisture to prevent dryness and damage. Over time, the skin will regain its balance and be better able to fend for itself.


3.Stop Scrubbing—your skin is not the bathroom floor.

“Keep it clean.” That’s step one in any healthy skin care regimen. It’s common knowledge that dirt and impurities can cause breakouts and clog pores. Not so commonly understood is how easy it is to damage your skin by over-cleansing, scrubbing, or using harsh drying or exfoliating products.

We want to remove excess dirt, oil and makeup without disturbing the skin’s natural line of defense—the balance of oil and water on its surface layer known as the acid mantle. Soaps, scrubs and exfoliants can strip your face of this natural protection, resulting in dry, irritated skin and premature signs of aging. Dr. Hauschka’s exclusive “press and roll” cleansing method gently removes excess dirt and oil while protecting the skin’s natural defenses and stimulating healthy lymph flow. This encourages and supports healthy skin, resulting in a clear, radiant complexion.

4.Ingredients matter . . . and quality ingredients matter most.

Every ingredient that goes into a Dr. Hauschka Skin Care preparation has an important job to do. Whether delivering essential moisture, encouraging resilience, improving efficacy or adding natural, therapeutic fragrance, each ingredient is carefully selected for its particular effects and its interaction with the whole composition. Hauschka manufacturer WALA Heilmittel has been studying and working with healing plant and mineral extracts since the 1940’s. Over the decades they’ve developed an in-depth understanding of the way certain plants mirror specific skin functions and the manner in which each plant interacts with the skin to stimulate and support health, balance and beauty. Their pharmaceutical expertise joins over thirty-five years of pioneering work in holistic esthetics to create the purest, most effective natural skin care preparations available.

We rely exclusively on healthy, ecologically and socially responsible sources for our ingredients. WALA Heilmittel supports sustainable, ecologically sound agricultural practices by obtaining as many of their ingredients as possible from certified Biodynamic and organic sources. Biodynamics is a holistic, sustainable form of ecologically responsible agriculture that predates the organic movement. WALA owns and operates its own Biodynamic garden and farm, which provides a number of the ingredients used in its healing remedies and Dr. Hauschka Skin Care line. In fact, the vast majority of ingredients in the Dr. Hauschka Skin Care line are from Biodynamic and organic sources, and not a single ingredient comes from an organization involved in animal testing. Our Eco-conscious packaging and natural botanical preservatives help keep products fresh without the use of chemical additives. In this way, we’re able to maintain the vitality of our Biodynamic and organic plant ingredients, delivering their nurturing, supportive qualities directly to you.


The BDIH is a federal association of German manufacturers of drugs, supplements, cosmetics and personal care products whose “Guidelines for Natural” are among the most selective in the world. Dr. Hauschka’s line of holistic skin care is 100% Certified Natural by the BDIH, and we’re proud to display their “Certified Natural Cosmetic” seal on our packaging. This seal assures customers of the purity and authenticity of the natural products they purchase, and is awarded only to products that conform to the following standards:

* Organic and Biodynamic plant ingredients

* Exclusively non toxic processing methods

* No animal testing

    Interesting article. Maybe I should give my skin a rest during the night time and stop using the night cream for a few days. But I’m really not so sure about this, maybe I will be scared in the morning if I look in the mirror. 🙂
