For more than 50 years Dr. Hauschka natural skincare has been one of Australia's leading natural and organic skincare brands. Dr. Hauschka takes immense pride in our legacy of providing natural skincare solutions to our valued customers. Dr. Hauschka's Australia journey is not just about skincare; it's a tale of family, dedication, and a commitment to holistic well-being. 

The Origins of Dr. Hauschka in Australia 

Dr. Hauschka's story began over half a century ago when Dr. Rudolf Hauschka, a renowned chemist and pharmacist, joined forces with esthetician Elisabeth Sigmund to create a line of natural skincare products. Dr. Hauschka made its way to Australia very early on which made Australia one of the first countries outside Germany to offer Dr. Hauschka natural skincare products to the Australian market. 

Their vision of Dr. Hausckka in Australia was simple yet revolutionary: to offer the healing powers of nature to nurture the skin and promote overall health.
