Gifts Inspired by the Garden

The garden can be a sanctuary of peace and inspiration for those who cultivate its charms—but not everyone is born with green thumbs! If you lack the space or the skill to nurture a garden, there are other ways to enjoy natures fragrance, colours and positive influence.

Make-up inspired by the garden to bring joy to those with-or-without a sanctuary of their own.

High Spirits Dr. Hauschka Collection

The true potential of plant medicinals and mineral pigments is fully expressed by Dr. Hauschka’s High Spirits limited edition make-up collection. This vibrant fusion of exotic hues offers both subtle and energetic looks to reflect your mood.

Does your Make-up Make you Happy

Whatever your definition of happiness, the senses have been shown to play a role. Hints of green and gold can lift the spirits like sunshine in a garden. The scent of plants floats like pollen in a bronze dust, reminiscent of garden flowers at dusk.

My description though poetic, is grounded in science—which validates the toxic influence of synthetic dyes, fragrances and other harmful preservatives present in many cosmetics. Just like environmental pollution, a build-up of harmful toxins absorbed through the skin, airways, and hair, place accumulative stress on our bodies—applying a regular dose directly to your skin or hair can amplify this.

Whereas, studies looking at the effects of forest bathing and other nature emersion therapies indicate the aromatic benefits of plants on our neurochemistry. Ecologically sourced and manufactured cosmetics have a twofold benefit—derived from natural ingredients you can avoid the negative impact of synthetic toxins and enjoy the elevating effects of botanicals on your senses.

What’s unique about Dr. Hauschka

Their make-up restores natural balance to the skin and adds colour without concealing natural radiance and vitality, plus the fine textures ensure application with ease.

The raw materials are sourced almost exclusively from certified organic cultivation and meet Demeter and fair-trade standards whenever possible. All Dr. Hauschka make-up products are certified in accordance with NATRUE, the international standard for natural and organic skin care and make-up.

Make-up with Medicinal Benefits

Dr. Hauschka complexion-priming products all contain balancing medicinal plant extracts as well as nourishing oils and waxes. This means their foundation, concealer and powder actively provides soothing benefits for dry or sensitive skin. Their eyeshadows, kajal pencils and mascaras are made with formulations containing eyebright and black tea to soothe the eyes and care for the delicate surrounding skin. Even their lip glosses and lipsticks offer extra nourishment provided by jojoba and almond oil.

The Cost of Color in Cosmetics

Whilst the iridescent glow of some cosmetics are achieved unnaturally, this need not be the case if you prefer your pucker pure organic. Dr. Hauschka are a pioneering example of the diverse palette possible from natural mineral pigments that optically blend with your skin tone to highlight your individual beauty.

Even, if you like bright colours! The varied colour palette of Dr. Hauschka Make-up was created in collaboration with international make-up artists. The colour schemes for complexion, lip and eye products are specially designed to work together in harmony—providing the ideal combination for natural and discreet or colorful and vibrant looks.
