*from natural essential oils
Herbs and flowers are the core of Dr Hauschka Skin Care preparations and many are extracted in a mixture of alcohol and water. They use a certified organic food-grade ethyl alcohol (ethanol) from wheat. Many plants are extracted in alcohol because it extracts the widest variety of plant constituents. Alcohol also serves as a natural emulsifier, preservative and carrier, helping ingredients penetrate the skin. Alcohol is not drying to the skin when part of a carefully formulated Dr Hauschka composition. Their alcohol is derived from a fermentation and distillation process and is gluten-free. Isopropyl alcohol is never used in Dr Hauschka Skin Care products.
Dr Hauschka fragrances are carefully composed, proprietary blends of the purest, highest quality essential oils. European regulations require that they list their pure essential oil scents as "Parfum" while in the US the required declaration is "Fragrance". No synthetic fragrance or perfume ingredients are ever used to scent Dr Hauschka products.
Most Dr Hauschka do not contain gluten. Gluten, a naturally-occurring protein in wheat and other grains, is found in hydrolysed wheat protein used in Dr Hauschka Cleansing Milk. Cleansing Milk contains fermented grain extract, which may also contain gluten and is not suitable for people with allergies to wheat. Those with celiac disease can safely use this product if they avoid getting the product in the mouth. Wheat germ oil, tocopherol (Vitamin E) and alcohol are wheat-derived ingredients that do not contain gluten. Dr. Hauschka have verified to the best of our ability that no other gluten or wheat substances are used during the manufacture of Dr Hauschka Skin Care or its ingredients.
The peanut oil used in Dr Hauschka products is treated with steam and subsequently filtered, which removes the proteins that cause allergic reaction. While the likelihood of an allergic reaction to the peanut oil used in Dr Hauschka products is extremely low, we suggest those with peanut allergy discuss this issue with their health provider.
Many Dr Hauschka products feature nurturing plant oils such as jojoba, avocado, raspberry seed and sunflower seed oils, as well as oils derived from tree nuts such as sweet almond, macadamia, argan, shea, and apricot kernel oils. Nut oils are superior natural carriers for the botanical extracts in our products and rich sources of antioxidants and skin-replenishing essential fatty acids. As most of the tree nut oils used in Dr Hauschka products are only filtered, they may contain traces of nut proteins. Because individual sensitivities vary, people with known tree nut allergies should avoid products containing these oils.
Dr Hauschka Skin Care upholds holistic principals but does not ascribe to a vegetarian or vegan philosophy. Though we do no animal testing, several humanely obtained animal ingredients: lanolin, honey, propolis, beeswax, lactose and royal jelly are included in many Dr Hauschka products. They also employ carmine and silk, two ingredients from insects.
Dr Hauschka Skin Care, Inc. and their manufacturer, WALA Heilmittel view genetic manipulation as a dangerous practice. The consequences of tampering with nature in this way cannot be fully foreseen. Dr Hauschka Skin Care, Inc. and WALA Heilmittel are firmly opposed to genetic modification of plants and animals. Since 1997 WALA has been actively working to ensure that genetically modified ingredients are not used in Dr Hauschka Skin Care products. WALA maintains a close watch on botanical raw materials and vigilantly identifies ingredients that pose a risk for GMO contamination. When conventionally grown plants with a high probability for genetic manipulation must be used, WALA insists on testing and certification from suppliers. Beginning in 1998, WALA's supplier of soy lecithin has conducted independent genetic testing to certify their source material is GMO-free.
Dr Hauschka neither perform nor commission animal testing of their products or ingredients. Compliance with the European ban on animal testing of cosmetics and cosmetic ingredients is verified during certification of their products as Natural and/or Organic Cosmetics according to the BDIH and/or NATRUE standards.
