WALA Heilmittel GmbH – Nature’s treasures transformed for you
‘Nature’s treasures transformed for you’ – this has been WALA Heilmittel GmbH’s guiding principle ever since the company was founded back in 1935. By harnessing the rhythms of polarities such as warmth and cold, light and darkness or movement and rest, the company creates healthcare products based on natural substances that, wherever possible, are obtained from organic sources and under fair conditions. Today, the foundation-owned company exports WALA Medicines, Dr. Hauschka Skin Care und Dr.Hauschka Med products to 40 countries.
