Business Details

Specific sustainability

At Dr.Hauschka, sustainability is not an expert topic; it is an indispensable part of our company philosophy and therefore an everyday requirement.

  • We almost exclusively obtain our plants, oils and waxes from controlled organic cultivation (Demeter quality where possible) and under fair trade conditions.
  • We think and work in material cycles – for example, when using rain water or easy-to-recycle packaging materials and when composting vegetal production waste.
  • We conserve resources wherever possible: we have procured 100% certified green electricity for many years, we use heat recovery and the ground temperature for air conditioning purposes, we provide company bicycles, pay our employees’ public transport fares and provide a carpooling platform.
Soil is a complex organism in which several cycles are interlinked to create a stable system. This stability can only be retained if humans integrate themselves into these cycles responsibly.

We need nature, but nature can also need us: when we created our medicinal plant garden in 1955, the site was a boggy meadow with heavy loam soil. Today, valuable medicinal plants grow there. This piece of land continually teaches us the secrets of sustainable business practices.

Sustainable partnerships all around the world

We also support sustainability through the ecological, socially-responsible partnerships that we have created: for example, we obtain shea butter from an organically certified collection area in Burkina Faso and the precious oil of the Damask roses from countries such as from Afghanistan, where we are working with the World Hunger Organisation to offer around 700 farmers who now use organic methods an alternative to opium cultivation.
