So how much do you want to pay for this? If You’re expecting to get a highlighter, blush and bronzer palette for £7.95 then walk away now, you’re looking in the wrong place. There are plenty of places for you to buy cheap make up and body care online and on the high street.
However, just because you get a superb product and all the above stand out qualities does not mean you will blow your budget.
As an example, the wonderful Dr Hauschka Cleansing cream which balances and revitalises your skin is just £16 for 50ml.
Compare that to Estee Lauder’s multi effect face and neck cream which costs £14.95 for just 15ml. Yet this has none of the ethics or natural harmony that Dr Hauschka UK has.
Dermalogica’s toning lotion is £35 for 250ml whilst 100ml of Dr Hauschka’s facial toner is £25.50. Whilst this might appear to mean it works out more expensive, which is true, is it really so much more for the standard of safe and ethical product you will be buying?
A quick look at the Dermalogica product and we can see that it contains the following ingredients:
Water (Aqua), Butylene Glycol, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Extract, Melissa Officinalis Leaf Extract, Sodium Lactate, Sodium PCA, Sorbitol, Proline, Propylene Glycol, Malva Sylvestris (Mallow) Flower/Leaf/Stem Extract, Hedera Helix (Ivy) Leaf/Stem Extract, Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Fruit Extract, Sambucus Nigra Flower Extract, Arnica Montana Flower Extract, Parietaria Officinalis Extract, Ricinoleth-40, Polysorbate 20, Methyl Gluceth-20, PEG-12 Dimethicone, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate, Linalool, Polyquaternium-4, Disodium EDTA, Sodium Citrate, 1,2-Hexanediol, Caprylyl Glycol, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin, and Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil.
A grand total of 30 different ingredients, many of which I simply do not understand or recognise.
In the natural health world there is a simple rule, if you do not recognise something on the ingredients list of a product then the chances are your body will not recognise these either! Thus, as a simple rule of thumb, things we do not recognise that we will be eating or putting on our skin are best avoided.
Whilst the Dr Hauschka’s facial toner contains just the following ingredients:
Aqua, Anthyllis Vulneraria Extract, Alcohol, Hamamelis Virginiana Bark/Leaf Extract, Parfum, Linalool, Citronellol, Geraniol, Limonene, Citral.
A total of just 11 ingredients and whilst I may not know why all those ingredients are being used (I’m not a cosmetics manufacturer), I can certainly understand them all.
Therefore, the simpler, less chemically laden product not only compares very favourably in price but will deliver excellent results.
Dr Hauschka balancing day lotion at £26.50 compares nicely against Citron de Vigne’s Fresh Body Lotion which is priced at £24.
Of course it is easy to cherry pick products and prices to make my point but the simple fact is there are cheap products, middle of the road products and very expensive products on the cosmetics and body care market and whether you choose Dr Hauschka balancing day lotion, Dr Hauschka’s facial toner, Dr Hauschka Cleansing cream or any other of the beautiful products in the Dr Hauschka range it is most definitely worth the money.
A comparable product to the Dr Hauschka Cleansing Milk with a similar ethical approach is a vegan and organic product from the perfume club that is £41.84 which is not far off double the price!
Dr Hauschka is made with the highest standards in mind but certainly does not come in as the most expensive product. In fact, it has less ingredients than most artificially enhanced cosmetic and body care ranges but helps nature and us all by being ethical and sustainable.
It is also safe which means you are far less likely to get unpleasant skin reactions or other allergic reactions when using the range.
It may not be the cheapest body care and cosmetics range on the market but nor is it the most expensive. It comes with a set of values and ethics that are second to none and the range really does work.
All you need to do is speak with a Dr Hauschka trained aesthetician and you will be given the right guidance to get the best from the products.
In a nutshell – yes Dr Hauschka UK products are most definitely worth the money!
