The cosmetologist, who was living in Stockholm at the time, travelled to Eckwälden and worked out formulas for a facial care product together with the medicinal experts. Together they found solutions for cream bases that were stable without synthetic chemical emulsifiers and created fragrance mixtures with natural ätheric Öoils.
In 1967, the first products came onto the market. In 1971 Elisabeth Sigmund trained the first Dr. Hauschka Natural Esthetician. "Of course we felt like rebels when we developed these unconventional cosmetics," says Elisabeth Sigmund.
Dr. Hauschka Skin Care still feels connected to the pioneering spirit of the founding phase: In 1999, the company introduced a complete range of decorative cosmetics with natural ingredients and a formula that not only tastes good but also cares for the skin.
