Holistic Skin Care, the Dr. Hauschka Way
Written by: Cindy Storey, Dr. Hauschka Holistic Esthetician
As a Dr. Hauschka esthetician for nearly 20 years I would like to share some important thoughts with you. I have always believed in the healing power of Mother Nature. It has long been my dream to use products – at home as well as with my clients – that are capable of transporting one directly into nature. I want us to be able to visit that place where miracles happen. Through many years of research and experience, it has always been clear that the Dr. Hauschka line does this best. Each time we apply a Dr. Hauschka product we are transported to a world of healing, quiet, regenerating power. Below I will list for you some of the reasons why I have such a passion for Dr. Hauschka products and practices.
1. The skin is our largest organ
It requires gentle respect in order to bring it into balance. We must always have the awareness that what we do with our skin affects our entire being. Unhealthy skincare choices greatly affect your overall health. With Dr.Hauschka the skincare regime is simple and complete. Daytime care requires proper cleansing, toning and moisturizing. Nighttime care allows your skin to naturally regenerate and breathe freely. At night we use oil free products containing stimulating and regenerating plant essences. As well there are many special “cures” that can enhance and support the renewal of your skin.
2. The entire line is BDIH and/or NATRUE certified
This assures me that each and every product is free of synthetic fragrances, dyes, and preservatives, mineral oils, parabens, silicones, and PEG. I want to feel great about every ingredient that is absorbed through the skin. Dr. Hauschka makes that endeavor attainable. These products beautifully combine pure organic essential oils with carefully selected essences from medicinal plants.
3. Dr. Hauschka skincare has been successfully used for almost 50 years, with the guidance of cosmetologist, Elizabeth Sigmund
Dr.Hauschka, a chemist developed the very roots of this line over 90 years ago. His goals were to heal humanity, and the earth. The company was creating plant-based, organic and eco-friendly products long before that became the trend it is today. This means that the people who make these products have generations of experience and knowledge. They know how to do it right.
4. A Dr. Hauschka facial is so much more that just a facial
Lymphatic stimulation is at the heart of each treatment. The lymphatic capillaries are encouraged to relax, allowing oxygen and nutrients to penetrate skin cells. We are helping your body’s largest organ to heal itself, from within.
5. Organic and biodynamic farming practices are central to this line
According to the availability guided by biodynamic farming’s natural rhythms, the ingredients used in Dr. Hauschka products are carefully gathered from controlled organic and/or biodynamic farms. When an ingredient is not available, Dr. Hauschka initiates organic farming projects globally. Which leads me to my next point …
6. Dr. Hauschka products are not only good for you
They are good for everyone involved in the process. For example, organic mango butter and castor oil are grown and gathered in India, where the local farmers are given opportunities for fair and equitable work in beautiful conditions. Also, no animal tests have ever been carried out on behalf of Dr.Hauschka skincare.
