Skin conditions instead of skin types

We do not use the term ‘skin types’ as every person is different.

You and your skin cannot be rigidly pigeon-holed. 
You need the right care concepts for different days and places, different seasons and different stages of life.
At Dr.Hauschka, we therefore refer to skin conditions, which appear and disappear, rather than fixed skin types.
