Benefits for your skin—and our planet.
For over forty-seven years, Dr. Hauschka Skin Care products, signature facial treatments and business practices have been based on a "holistic" philosophy. Our 100% natural skin care products are based on an understanding of the way skin works and its relationship with overall health, the goal being skin that is balanced and able to perform its natural functions without dependence upon a slew of products.
A Dr. Hauschka Skin Care regimen works best when part of a healthy lifestyle supported by diet, exercise and contemplative practice. All of these factors help to reconnect us with our natural rhythms, and have a profound effect on skin health and beauty. All are a part of Dr. Hauschka's holistic approach.
What do we mean when we talk about ‘holistic’?
The simple answer is that we always keep the big picture in mind. When it comes to any one action we take or any one decision we make, we take the time to look at the repercussions and ramifications it may have on our skin, our health, our communities and planet:
- Our products are certified natural, containing the highest-quality plant and mineral ingredients
- We carefully choose every ingredient based on its individual effects on the skin, as well as the way it interacts with other ingredients
- We carefully research every plant’s origin, making sure it comes from an ecologically and ethically sound source
- We carefully design and manufacture packaging that enables us to keep our products free of artificial preservative
- Your complexion will be toned, balanced, vital and radiant.
Whatever the condition of your skin today, Dr. Hauschka has a range of natural skin care products that can help you achieve a complexion you’ll be happy to see in the mirror each morning.

"PEOPLE NEED TWO TYPES OF BEAUTY - AN INNER AND AN OUTER ONE."

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 Dr. Rudolf Steiner and asked the esteemed philosopher, educator and founder of Anthroposophy, “What is Life?” Dr. 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 use this rhythmic process to produce our extracts, essences and tinctures. All the ingredients in our 100% natural skin care products are processed using Dr. Hauschka’s original processing procedure to varying degrees. This unique method preserves 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 recognizes 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 moisturizers 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 Serum harness the skin’s inherent regenerative powers so they work to greater effect and results.
- Trained Dr. Hauschka Estheticians perform our Signature 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.
To experience a Dr. Hauschka treatment is to be transformed. Based on our time-proven, signature method of artful touch, each treatment is crafted to work with your body's natural rhythms to transform both inside and out.
The same methods and techniques that inform our products also form the basis of our facial and body treatments: By using a holistic, rhythmic approach, we provide stimuli that supports skin renewal and overall well-being. Our Certified Dr. Hauschka Estheticians use their unique skills to the benefit of your complexion and your whole body, leaving you looking and feeling relaxed, rejuvenated and well-balanced.
Recommended for every skin condition, the Classic Treatment is the original Dr. Hauschka Signature Treatment, from which all others are derived. Your Certified Dr. Hauschka Esthetician will personalize the approach to this treatment based upon your skin's specific needs as well as your desired results.
The Classic Treatment begins with deep relaxation: a warm sage foot bath and gentle stretching movements for the neck, arms and hands. Lavender-infused compresses introduce you to a holistic facial that includes two mask treatments to nourish, nurture and renew. Soft brushes are used to stimulate the skin's natural balancing and regenerative impulses. The result is a radiant complexion and a remarkable feeling of lightness and inner balance. This is an ideal treatment if you are seeking true relaxation and visible transformation, all within 120 minutes.
