Need a beauty boost? Call the “Doctor!”


We’ve written about Dr. Hauschka cosmetics before, and we’ll continue to do so from time to time so that you become familiar with what we at GreenAcres think is a true breakthrough in health and beauty.

Dr. Hauschka is an interesting company, an amalgam really of philosophy and skin care practices gleaned from philosophers and estheticians in four countries: Denmark, Austria, Sweden and Germany. The spark that started the whole process was a combined effort to approach skin care by studying the lymphatic system combined with an Anthroposophic emphasis on the rhythm of healing and the spiritual side of medicine (espoused by a German named Dr. Rudolph Steiner). In other words, lots of minds were involved in launching what eventually became Dr. Hauschka.

Then, there was Dr. Rudolph Hauschka himself, another German, who named his manufacturing company WALA Heilmittel with the consummate goal, “to support the healing of humanity and the earth.” He set up a holistic approach to production and business practices which exists to this day.

Enter a woman who was already experimenting with similar skin care practices in Austria—Ms. Elizabeth Sigmund, who began sharing her ideas for plant-based preparations that would support skin health. Dr. Hauschka heard of Sigmund’s efforts and began corresponding with her. Like gravitates toward like, and the two decided to join forces to launch their company in 1967.

Today, Dr. Hauschka products are regarded as among the purist in the world, and GreenAcres Markets in three states are lucky to carry them.

Dr. Hauschka’s company website states: Our 100% natural skin care products are based on an understanding of the way skin works and its relationship with overall health, the goal being skin that is balanced and able to perform its natural functions without dependence upon a slew of products. 

A Dr. Hauschka Skin Care regimen works best when part of a healthy lifestyle supported by diet, exercise and contemplative practice. All of these factors help to reconnect us with our natural rhythms, and have a profound effect on skin health and beauty”:

  • Our products are certified natural, containing the highest-quality plant and mineral ingredients
  • We carefully choose every ingredient based on its individual effects on the skin, as well as the way it interacts with other ingredients
  • We carefully research every plant’s origin, making sure it comes from an ecologically and ethically sound source
  • We carefully design and manufacture packaging that enables us to keep our products free of artificial preservatives

We encourage all our customers to visit with our knowledgeable Health and Beauty team members to discover which products might work best for you. All our stores have miniature bottles of products that cost a fraction of the cost so you can experiment with several different ones and choose what you like.
