In 1967, aesthetician Elisabeth Sigmund teamed up with Dr. Rudolf Hauschka, an Austrian-born chemist known for creating a water-based rose petal extract that remained stable without artificial preservatives. Dr. Hauschka Skin Care was born, and rose extracts remain an essential part of the skincare and cosmetics line to this day. Designed to nurture and heal, each product is made with soothing botanicals that optimize skin health. Dr. Hauschka launched in the U.S. in 1997 and has quickly amassed a loyal following.
