Organico is delighted to have been selected to stock the much loved ‘Dr Hauschka’ range of cosmetics, which we launched with a delightful Beauty Morning in Organico Café. Mary Berkery from Heaven and Earth (the Distributers of Dr Hauschka in Ireland) Gave a really interesting seminar on the benefits of using a product that is entirely natural and designed to improve the condition of our skin instead its appearance. We also had an opportunity to try out all the products, which was great as it gives you an idea whether a product is for you or not without having to purchase it.
Dr Hauschka products have been around since the early 20th century, when Dr Rudolf Steiner's philosophy on humanith and health inspired his colleague Dr Rudolf Hauschka to develop a range of holistic herbal and homeopathic remedies which he termed 'anthroposophic'. In the 1960's called Elisabeth Sigmund worked with Dr Hauschka to extend this new approach to healthcare to cosmetics, and in 1967 the Dr Hauschka range of cosmetics began to be manufactured.
From then until now, Dr Hauschka products have grown in popularity and are now sold in over 20 countries. They are especially popular with a number of high profile celebrities like Madonna, Brad Pitt and Kate Moss.
Personally, what I love about the Dr Hauschka products is the combination of knowing that I am supporting a highly ethical and principled company and at the same time doing the best for my skin. Because of the connection to anthroposophy, Dr Hauschka chose all the ingredients for their healing and nourishing properties, the end result of which is a range of products that help improve all skin conditions, which is great for those of us who use the products. As well, and just as importantly, the philosophy behind Dr Hauschka products is such that the production methods are among the best in the world.
It's important to bear in mind that your skin is an organ and will absorb whatever you apply to it. Personally I'd prefer to be absorbing natural healing ingredients rather than the toxic bi-products of the petro-chemical industry!
