Sustainable harvesting in the wild
Some plants flourish better and develop their constituents more successfully in their natural habitat than in a garden. Eyebright is one such plant.
We therefore commission a wild collector to harvest this plant for us at an altitude of 1,200 metres in the southern Vosges Mountains – with a permit from the appropriate environmental authorities of course. This process is conducted with extreme care: we never harvest an entire meadow and we regularly pick the plants from different places. This maintains a natural stock while also giving us enough eyebright to make Dr. Hauschka Eye Revive, Eyeliner and Mascara as well as our WALA Euphrasia Augentropfen (eye drops).
