Lotions 'n Potions is Concord's exclusive local source for Dr. Hauschka Skin Care products and signature facial treatments. Dr. Hauschka Skin Care philosophy is that the skin possesses its own powers of nurture and regeneration and skin care products should support these functions.
This approach to skin care is what makes Dr.Hauschka Skin Care products unique. The skin’s natural activities can be undermined by the sun, wind or other factors. Dr.Hauschka Skin Care products reinvigorate them. They strengthen the skin’s own healthy processes and rhythms and give protection against external influences.
All raw materials and plants used in the manufacture of Dr Hauschka skin care products are first tested for purity. Only after they’ve passed strict tests can they be used for manufacture. Production takes place under strict hygienic conditions and quality control is carried out at all stages of the process. Finished products are inspected by experienced staff who check smell, consistency and color. Filling of finished product only takes place when all tests have been passed.
The focus on natural ingredients, however, isn’t the real innovation here. What makes Dr. Hauschka different is the equal amount of attention given to the process in which each product is made. His signature is the use of plant-based extracts that remain stable in water rather than harsh preservatives like alcohol. Also at the heart of Dr. Hauschka’s philosophy is an emphasis on rhythms. The key to life, he claims, is patterns that create balance and encourage the body to heal and protect itself. All of the products are made with these rhythmic principles in mind from the timing in which ingredients are grown and harvested to the way the ingredients interact with the natural cycles of the skin and body.
Since 1967, no Dr Hauschka Skin Care product has been tested on animals. Dr.Hauschka Skin Care products are extensively tested on volunteers selected from amongst the company's employees. And, before a new skin care product is introduced, dermatological tests are performed on human volunteers by independent institutes.
Dr.Hauschka has been creating colour cosmetics with 100% pure mineral pigments for over a decade. In addition to 100% pure mineral pigments, Dr.Hauschka's makeup contains an array of nourishing and moisturising substances that care for the skin, such as plant oils, including Jojoba oil, Macadamia oil and Shea Butter. Their products also include caring medicinal herb extracts, such as Kidney Vetch, Carrot and Tea that are known to calm and strengthen skin. Even their face powders are formulated with these kinds of medicinal herb extracts and natural oils to ensure that they offer supreme care as well as exceptional coverage. This approach to creating colour cosmetics results in an enhanced composition that is both beautiful to apply and wear.
