WALA – natural quality
Sustainable management for
WALA Heilmittel, the manufacturer of Dr.Hauschka Skin Care,
achieves high quality by the interaction of tradition with
modern state-of-the-art production processes.
WALA first manufactured anthroposophical medicines, more
than 60 years ago. The Dr.Hauschka Skin Care
Range was developed 40 years ago, in part from the basis of
the knowledge gained in the production of the medicines. Plants
from WALA’s own biodynamic medicinal herb garden are
processed by hand with care and deliberation and combined
with raw materials of supreme quality to produce high-grade
medicines and skin care products.
Roses from Romania and Shea
butter from Africa
In order to maintain consistent quality, biodynamic farming
projects are initiated and supported world-wide, for example
the cultivation of Damask Roses in Romania and Shea butter
in Burkina Faso, Africa. WALA’s support of these projects
also enables local farmers to live their lives in economic
security. In this way the concept of respect for nature and
human life is carried out into the wider world.
State-of-the-art analytical methods are used for regular
in-house quality control of all starting materials, intermediate
products and finished products. Quality control of skin care
products also follows pharmacopoeia guidelines.
Pioneers in matters of Nature
In all manufacturing processes, new buildings and acquisitions,
WALA makes sure that the cycle of responsibility towards nature
and future generations is complete.
WALA is owned by a Trust which is similar to a charity in
the UK. This means WALA cannot be sold and there are no shareholders.
When the Dr.Hauschka Skin Care Range was
developed in the 1960’s it was one of the first natural
skin care lines. At the time this was considered very avant-garde.
Today, 40 years later, it is more and more evident that Nature’s
way is perhaps the best way into the future. For WALA this
way has always been the most natural thing in the world.
