There are so many reasons why there has been an increase in demand for natural skincare products by the modern consumer. It’s not just that natural skin care products are sustainable and safer for animals, they are also just that much better for your skin’s health.
But when buying natural skincare products, you really need to be aware of greenwashing. Choose brands that have relevant certifications, such as the ‘NATRUE’ seal of approval that indicate the products are genuinely natural and organic cosmetics.
Here are 5 natural skincare products you can try to get you started on your journey.
1. Dr. Hauschka Cleansing Cream
Start your skincare routine with this all-natural product that cleanses, exfoliates, rejuvenates and refreshes. It’s suitable for all skin types and will leave your skin looking healthy and radiant. The Cleansing Cream is formulated with Calendula, Anthyllis, Chamomile, St John’s wort, and almond meal, to not only clarify and balance the skin, but to also strengthen its natural barrier function. When used in the morning and evening, this Cleansing Cream is also known to minimise the appearance of pores for a much smoother complexion.
How to use:
- Moisten face, neck and décolleté with a warm face cloth.
- Mix the Dr. Hauschka Cleansing Cream with warm water in your palms to form a smooth, creamy paste.
- Press gently to the skin with fingers, working from the forehead down to the neck in a “press and roll” movement.
- Do not rub or scrub.
- Repeat 1 to 3 times, then rinse thoroughly.
2. Dr. Hauschka Daily Hydrating Eye Cream
As we age, the fragile skin around our eyes loses elasticity, which is why it requires a more targeted treatment. Suited to all skin types, the moisture-rich formulation of Dr. Hauschka Daily Hydrating Eye Cream will nourish, firm, refine, and rejuvenate …) the skin. Enriched with rose water, pineapple, and Calendula; blended with nurturing avocado, macadamia nut, and sea buckthorn oils, this cream is quickly absorbed into the skin and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
How to use:
Using the tip of your ring finger, gently press Dr Hauschka Daily Hydrating Eye Cream into the skin around each eye, working from the inner corners outward.
3. Dr. Hauschka Rose Day Cream
Considered the ‘centrepiece of the Dr. Hauschka range’, Dr. Hauschka Rose Day Cream soothes, hydrates, supports, and protects normal, dry, sensitive, and tired skin. This deeply hydrating formula includes shea butter, rose hip, rose wax and rose petals to soothe and nourish; while the extracts of marshmallow and St John’s Wort address rosacea, redness and irritation in the skin. It consists of unifying moisture and oil content to better balance, comfort and protect the skin. The product has a particularly high oil and wax content, making it the ideal, family-friendly skincare addition during those dry winter months.
How to use:
Each morning after cleansing and toning, apply evenly to the face, neck and décolleté with a gentle pressing motion.
4. Dr. Hauschka Hydrating Hand Cream
Once you’ve cared for the face, you need to consider your hands which are often overlooked, but can be impacted by the elements.

Enriched with a blend of nourishing ingredients such as blackthorn, Anthyllis, beeswax, and wheat germ oil, this hand cream will deeply moisture dry, cracked, and sensitive hands. The moisture is then preserved, leaving the hands feeling smoother and softer without a greasy residue. It’s a lovely product to start the day with and to use on the go.
