Introducing essential rose oil from Ethiopia: A new raw-material project run by WALA Heilmittel GmbH
Bad Boll/Eckwälden, 16.11.2012/ib – When it comes to sources of essential rose oil, countries such as Turkey, Bulgaria, Iran and Afghanistan come to mind – but Ethiopia? As it turns out, the Ethiopian highlands, which are known for their coffee, provide the ideal conditions for growing the very fragrant Damask rose, and this "Rosa damascena" yields an exceptionally precious essential oil. Seven years ago, Ethiopian farmer Fekade Lakew joined forces with WALA Heilmittel GmbH and began cultivating Damask roses in keeping with the principles of biodynamic agriculture. This year he distilled the first batch of essential rose oil. This is the first rose oil production in sub-Saharan Africa that is transitioning to organic standards. In compliance with their high quality standards of using exclusively raw materials from certified organic sources whenever possible, it is of critical importance to WALA, which manufactures WALA Medicines and Dr.Hauschka Skin Care, to establish new partnerships with suppliers of raw materials.

The skin also needs to breathe - Dr.Hauschka oil-free night care instead of rich moisturisers
Bad Boll/Eckwälden, 07.06.2012/tow – "The nighttime is not just for sleeping", as the lyrics of a popular German song told us over 70 years ago. The skin could be singing the same tune – because it uses the night to regenerate. To do so, it must be able to breathe freely. After all, when we sleep the skin's metabolic activity is especially high. This is why Dr.Hauschka Skin Care offers a nighttime care regimen that is oil free. Our products support the skin's natural activity and innate rhythms. This special care concept sets Dr.Hauschka Skin Care apart from the rest.
