"The establishment of an internationally recognized natural and organic certification seal is a major step forward in helping the public recognize brands that are truly natural and produced with the highest of quality and ethical standards," says Victor Morrison, COO of Dr. Hauschka Skin Care. "For over forty-five years, Dr. Hauschka Skin Care products have been one-hundred percent natural, and we are gratified to have NATRUE validate our formulas and strengthen consumers' trust in our brand."

Beginning in 2009, Dr. Hauschka Skin Care began transitioning their products from the BDIH Natural Cosmetic standard to NATRUE, which offers three certification levels of natural and organic for personal care products. Founded in 2008 by the pioneers of natural and organic cosmetics, NATRUE is a non-profit international association that ensures that each certified product is formulated with minimally processed natural ingredients and is free of petroleum derived synthetics, ethoxylated (sodium laureth sulfate), genetic or nano-engineered ingredients, silicones, parabens, PEGs, phthalates, and synthetic dyes and fragrances.

NATRUE certification is a major advancement for Dr. Hauschka Skin Care and their manufacturer WALA Heilmittel, further establishing their products as certified natural and organic by an internationally recognized organization.
