Elisabeth Sigmund was a very unique woman. She was a globetrotter, theatre-maker, natural scientist and beautician. She had class but would also smoke cigarillos and rattle her motorbike through the Vienna Woods. Together with Rudolf Hauschka, she set to work in the laboratory developing innovative, effective natural cosmetics. She knew that, although beauty comes from within, we can also enjoy expressing that beauty on the outside. In 1967, her line of skin care products was launched under the brand name Dr. Hauschka. And in 1981, she proudly appeared in our village wearing her own lipstick for the very first time.
