Are our cosmetics 100 % vegan?
We make responsible use of high-quality raw materials from all the natural kingdoms: plant, mineral, and animal. As a result, not all of our cosmetic products fall into the category of vegan skin care. But many do.
Our natural cosmetics are free from mineral oils and parabens. We obtain our glycerine and fatty constituents from, for example, plants. wool wax and beeswax.
We decide which raw materials materials to use based on the skin’s requirements and the desired results. Examples of animal-kingdom materials we use include beeswax and silk powder. These materials are – like many animal-based raw materials – extremely valuable and close to the human body. Silk protein, for example, has a similar structure to our skin. This makes it particularly compatible and means it bonds extremely effectively.
At our Demeter farm in Bad Boll, we interact humanely, sustainably and responsibly with our environment and our fellow beings. We cultivate our medicinal plants biodynamically. This not only denotes plant quality, but also the symbiotic existence of all plants and animals on the farm. All plant-based raw materials that we do not produce ourselves, we obtain from partners who comply with our standards.
Naturally, we do not perform or commission any animal experiments for Dr. Hauschka Skin Care products. And this has been the case since we were first established more than 50 years ago.
