Product protection

Why does Dr. Hauschka place product protection in first place when selecting packaging?

For our Dr. Hauschka Skin Care recipes we use a great deal of natural resources. We invest highly worldwide in the organic and Demeter farming of our raw materials and the manufacturing of our products. LCA screening (life-cycle analysis) of our Dr. Hauschka Rose Day Cream, packed in an aluminium tube, showed that the packaging had a considerably lower impact on the environment than the raw materials in our skin care products. For us this means that the valuable contents must not be able to perish too soon due to unsuitable packaging and end up in the waste disposal. Add to this the fact that our 100% genuine natural cosmetics do not contain any synthetic preservatives. For us, therefore, maintaining the shelf life and freshness of the product is the most important role of the packaging. So for us product protection also means protecting resources.
