Behind this unconventional skincare line is its founder, Dr. Rudolf Hauschka's goal "to support the healing of humanity and the earth" informs not only the culture of Dr. Hauschka Skin Care and its manufacturer, WALA Heilmittel, but also the company's business practices, production methods and the very nature of the company's products themselves.".
Powered by principle, Dr. Hauschka was created inspired by the vision of a culture of care and proudly used of natural skin care products to nurture health and beauty to recognize well-being in others.
In the early 1960's, Dr. Hauschka met Elisabeth Sigmund, an esthetician who had been using WALA remedies in her own skin care products.
At Dr. Hauschka's invitation, Elisabeth Sigmund traveled to Eckwalden from her home in Stockholm to work with Dr. Hauschka's experts to develop facial care products that support skin health as a means of achieving beautiful skin.
They jointly created solutions for stable cream bases without chemical and/or synthetic emulsifiers and scented with natural essential oils. The first products were launched in 1967; four years later, Elisabeth Sigmund trained the first Dr. Hauschka Esthetician in what became known as the Dr. Hauschka Classic Treatment, the foundation of all the Signature Treatments that have followed. The revolutionary and novel concepts Elisabeth Sigmund and Dr. Hauschka developed in the 1960s are now the standards by which superior natural skin care products are defined today.
