Dr. Hauschka is a brand of skin care products that was founded back in 1967, and that was started by Elisabeth Sigmund and Dr. Rudolf Hauschka. Unlike some of the competitors out there, this line of treatments is claimed to be “holistic,” which basically means that the environment is consider when the products are created and manufactured. The official website states that specific ingredients are selected based on the way they mesh with other product components. Artificial preservatives are not added to the skin treatments. It’s even suggested that Dr. Hauschka skin care should be incorporated with a healthy lifestyle, nutritious diet and regular exercise in order to get the full effect of the skin care regimen.

Although the Dr. Hauschka line offers a number of different categories to choose from, the “Face” section alone incorporates products for cleansing, toning, moisturizing, eye care, masks and lips. All Dr. Hauschka products are claimed to utilize active ingredients like plant extracts and natural minerals, which come from organic sources. No animal testing is involved with the production of Dr. Hauschka cosmetics. Furthermore, the packaging for these treatments is “eco-conscious.” There appears to be a single customer testimonial offered on the official website. Users are able to return Dr. Hauschka products for exchange or refund if dissatisfied in any way. All Dr. Hauschka skin care treatments are available for purchase through the website.

Product Details

The Dr. Hauschka cosmetic line is an environmentally-conscious brand that manufactures numerous face care, bath and shower, hair care, sun care and deodorant products. Similar to many other skin care lines, Dr. Hauschka aims to assist with anti-aging, sun protection, acne, fine lines, collagen loss, dark circles, hyper pigmentation, dry skin and daily cleansing. Primary ingredients found in Dr. Hauschka treatments are natural minerals and plant extracts. Actual clinical research regarding Dr. Hauschka products doesn’t seem to be presented on the official website. Virtually all Dr. Hauschka treatments appear to be geared toward women.

The Good

  • All Dr. Hauschka products are developed using a “holistic” approach.
  • Dr. Hauschka offers all sorts of products suitable for hair, body, face care, bath and sun care.
  • Key ingredients are listed on the official website.
  • Dr. Hauschka skin care treatments contain natural minerals and plant extracts.

The Bad

  • There is only one customer testimonial posted on the official website.
  • No free trial skin care treatments are offered at this time.
  • Dr. Hauschka products appear to be geared primarily toward women, not men.
  • There may be ingredients found in Dr. Hauschka treatments that irritate the complexion of some users.
  • Actual clinical research regarding Dr. Hauschka products is not offered on the website.
  • Many proven, cutting-edge wrinkle fighters area not included in this product line.

The Bottom Line

The Dr. Hauschka line of treatments is certainly unique considering the all-natural ingredients that are incorporated without preservatives. Some individuals will appreciate the holistic approach that Dr. Hauschka appears to take. Then again, it’s also important to remember that there is no clinical evidence presented on the official website to support the claimed effectiveness of Dr. Hauschka treatments. Finally, it would be nice to see a section of Dr. Hauschka products geared toward men, as well as some free trial samples offered.

Rejuval Skin Bottle

Top Anti-Aging Cream for 2014: Rejuval Skin

Editor's Review: 4.9 / 5.0

After looking at literally hundreds of wrinkle reduction and prevention treatments, Rejuval Skin is our top choice. This product offers customers a Risk-Free Trial, and makes sure to both repair and protect the skin without using harmful chemicals like paragons or fragrances. No other formula that we've seen takes such a holistic approach to skin care. Rejuval Skin contains the advanced scientifically proven ingredient Acetyl Hexapeptide-3, proven to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. When you factor in the trial offer, the potent formula, and the scientific studies posted on the official site, it's easy to see why Rejuval Skin is our top anti-aging pick. >> Read more about Rejuval Skin Go

    What are the actual ingredients in the face cream?
    I do not want anything which can be absorbed into my skin therefore my systems. I have read that some face creams have ingredients which are detrimental to ones body.
    Thank you for your assistance.

    ANYTHING you put on your face will be absorbed into your skin and therefore your “systems”. Better something holistic than scary industrial chemicals!

    Claire Reply:

    Oh dear, completely incorrect. Almost nothing can be absorbed by the skin as the majority of molecules are too big to penetrate. Hence why pharmaceutical companies have developed ‘carriers’ which transport topical drugs through the skin. These are not used in the cosmetics industry, else they would be classified as a drug.

    James Reply:

    ALSO erroneous. Micro or nanoparticles of various substances can be used to penetrate the skin without reclassifying a substance as a drug.

    In regards to “The Bad”

    “There is only one customer testimonial posted on the official website.” — Not true, there are numerous product testimonials on their web site.

    Regarding “No free trial skin care treatments are offered at this time.” — Not true, when shoppong at my local health foods store I was given samples of several Dr. Hauschka products so I could try them before I buy.

    Dr. Hauschka products are DEFINITELY NOT for sensitive skin. Although holistic, they are heavy and full of oils and well as strong fragrance. Very irritating to me.

    theresa Reply:

    dr. hauschka products, are for sensitive skin, if you choose the right products. on their official website, you can click on the link for sensitive skin and you are given choices of products specially suited for sensitive skin, ie cleansing milk, rose light day cream and facial toner. you can also choose the right mask for sensitive skin. i have extremely sensitive skin and when i choose the right products my skin has never felt more hydrated without excess greasy feeling and my skin has an allover glow without my usual red rosecea showing. please try the sensitive skin line before totally giving up on these products from dr. hauschka. they are totally organic, herbal ingredients. that will do no harm.

    I have sensitive, hyper-reactive skin with eczema and roseacea. I had to see a Dr. Hauschka esthetician to figure out what products (very complex line) but I’ve got a routine now that is very mild and works well. I’m highly allergic to fragrances – can’t even do Aveeda or Origins or any mainstream “holistic” products. But I do fine with this and my skin is visibly improving.

    Dr Hauschka’s body products are amazing. They have this incredible lemon bath oil and blackthorn body oil which is amazing for firming and toning your body. My skin loves it and their products smell and feel amazing! So luxurious, I highly recommend.

    I love Dr. Hauscka products. No peptides or promises – no line fillers. In the high and dry Rocky Mountains I have found this product makes my skin feel and look great. Please know that Dr. H products are sold in many herb stores. In order to carry the product, the persons selling the products must go through training. I previously purchased the products at local herb store in my town; however, they closed and the nearest store is 300 miles, so I purchase on web. I often find a bargain on Canadan Pharm. But please know your credit card company will charge an extra 3%.

    Love the day cream for my face, the best thing I have found for a dry complexion. I am 45 and live in a dry climate so I need the moisture and it is great.

    I started using the Dr.Hauschka products about two weeks ago. I was keen to use an all organic range, i bought the Cleaning Cream, the Rose Day Light Cream and the Facial Toner. I was really enjoying all three of these products, loved the smell and the experience of using them as well as the way my skin felt after use. However, sadly i have had an allergic reaction to these products, i am not sure which one(as i have been using all at the sametime). I am very disapointed, i presume i am allergic to the esentual oils in the products – as this is a most common. I am not usally allergic to skincare so i was really shocked and disapointed! will have to find someting new :(

    I began using Dr Hauschka many years ago now. I had acne as a young woman and was very harsh on my skin drying it terribly for years. I started with a cleansing cream, clarifying toner, Quince cream routine and as my skin normalized over a period of months I switched to using the Cleansing Milk, Claryifing Toner and a mix of Toned Day Cream with Moisturing day cream (equal parts). I have read lots of reviews and none have mentioned the toned day cream. I truly love the entire Dr Hauschka product line and have been using it now for over a decade. The extra tone in the day cream gives me a warm skin tone and I don’t need a foundation makeup. Bonus!

    My neck is definitely less wrinkled. I am amazed after only 3 weeks using theDr. Hauschka Neck Rejuvenating cream. It was expensive, but the results are for real. People I hadn’t seen for awhile have been saying ‘You look fantastic”. Hmmm! just past my 57th birthday. Will buy it again. Oh ,it lasts a long time! I use it with the moisturizer as recommended.

    On the EWG’s Skin Deep Cosmetics Database, this product does not have a good score. Why is the score low if the products are all natural?
