Questions about products


What kind of products does Dr. Hauschka Skin Care make?
Cleansing Cream, Soothing Cleansing Milk or Cleansing Balm: When should I use which one?

Cleansing Cream - a composition of almond meal and medicinal herbs for daily use – is the gentle cleanser for all skin states. It has skin-strengthening and moisturising properties and stimulates the skin's natural self-cleansing powers. Can be used mornings and evenings.

Soothing Cleansing Milk - a tenside-free, mildly replenishing cleansing emulsion specially for delicate, dry and sensitive skin. Can also be used as make-up remover for all skin states.

Cleansing Balm - Cleansing Balm thoroughly removes dirt and make-up from the skin and preserves the skin’s oil and moisture production. The light gel-to-milk formulation is suitable for any skin condition, even for those with a beard. It leaves the skin feeling nourished, radiant and refreshed.

When should I use Facial Toner and when is Clarifying Toner more appropriate? When should I start using Regenerating Serum?

Facial Toner - a basic toner that supports normal, dry or sensitive skin and skin in need of regeneration.

Clarifying Toner - a special herbal lotion that regulates blemished, greasy, large-pored skin prone to inflammation.

Spray the skin with the appropriate toner in the morning after cleansing and before applying your regular day-care product. Apply the toner again in the evening after cleansing unless you are using Renewing Night Conditioner, in which case you should omit the toner in the evening and apply Renewing Night Conditioner instead.

Regenerating Serum - an oil-free day and night care product that meets the needs of demanding, mature skin. The serum supports the moisture-binding capacity of the skin, strengthens and vitalises the functions of mature, demanding skin. Apply in the morning to the cleansed skin before applying your day care product. Use in the evening as oil-free night care after a course of treatment with Renewing Night Conditioner.

Why is there no Dr. Hauschka night cream?

The Dr. Hauschka oil-free night care regime supports the nocturnal metabolism of the skin because this is the time when the skin's metabolic activity is at its maximum. Instead of burdening the natural elimination processes with oily skin care products, the Dr. Hauschka night care programme consists of products containing stimulating and regenerating plant essences. These allow the skin to breathe freely and overcome any weaknesses and imbalances. Healthy and beautiful skin is the result.

What effect do the Dr. Hauschka Renewing Night Conditioner and Sensitive Care Conditioner ampoules have on the skin?

The conditioners are oil-free intensive care products for the night which have a normalising action on the various skin states. We recommend using Conditioner in the form of a 28-day course of treatment during which the Conditioner is applied to the face every evening after cleansing. Apply 2 ampoules each evening during the first 3 weeks and then just 1 ampoule per evening during the last week. The course of treatment can be repeated several times a year. The recommended number of treatments is one for every 10 years of your age (e.g. 3 treatments a year for someone aged 30).

When should I use Dr. Hauschka Renewing Night Conditioner and when is Dr. Hauschka Sensitive Care Conditioner more appropriate?

Dr. Hauschka Renewing Night Conditioner - advanced night care.

Its oil-free formula stimulates the skin's metabolic activity which is particularly pronounced at night. The natural skin functions are activated. Dry skin learns to produce and retain oil and moisture again. Sensitive skin is strengthened. In oily, blemished skin excessive production of oil and dead skin cells is reduced. Skin prone to premature wrinkling is given new tone and elasticity.

In the cases of wheat germ oil and wheat bran extract, however, all potentially allergenic protein compounds are almost entirely removed by the oil purification process and the preparation of the extract.

Dr. Hauschka products have a supportive effect during pregnancy and have been used safely and effectively for decades.

Are Dr. Hauschka products expensive?

The recommended retail price of Dr. Hauschka Skin Care products is calculated on the basis of three different factors. First and foremost, the high quality standards with regard to the raw materials used, their origin and their properties. For example, WALA has launched a project in India to offer organic mango butter for the first time. This high level of quality and the support provided to local people are also reflected in the price of the products acquired from such projects. WALA is also an innovative company that is highly committed to research on ingredients. This acts as the Foundation for creating unique and customised formulations.

Finally, WALA firmly believes that responsible social and economic practices throughout the entire value-added chain form the basis for long-term sustainability. Farming projects with countries such as Burkino Faso, Ethiopia, Iran and Afghanistan are examples of such practices.
