The 100-percent natural skincare brand may have launched in 1967, but its philosophy and theory—to imitate the life energy of plants — started decades earlier when Dr. Hauschka first decided to expose botanicals to a couple of bi-polar extremes: heat and cold, light and dark, motion and stillness. Pretty scientific we know, but the end result was worth it: the good doctor created a way to secure water-based plant extracts and infuse them into high-performance skin care. This cleansing milk is no exception. Full of creamy, natural ingredients (like: fermented grains to eliminate dirt, oil and grime; bentonite clay to soothe the skin and cool irritation; and jojoba and sweet almond oils to maintain your skin’s natural moisture balance and pH level) are exactly what the doctor ordered. The eco-chic brand’s experts promise that after washing your face with it, dry, mature and sensitive skin will be soft and supple. The cleanser can even double as a shaving cream, so don’t be surprised if you see your husband lathering it on before picking up his razor.
