Dr. Hauschka recently added to its beauty product collection with a unique new Shower Cream that boasts recycled plastic packaging. The topical product is packaged in a tube that's made from recycled plastic milk bottles and other post-consumer-recycled content.
The unisex cream itself is made with a blend of ultra-nourishing ingredients like sunflower and avocado oil, quince seed extract, lemongrass essential oils and citric acid. As its name suggests, the Shower Cream is meant to be used in the shower on damp skin—after it has been applied and lathered into the skin, it can be rinsed away.
As Dr. Hauschka has reduced its range of body wash products, Shower Cream is set to become the brand's leading product, setting a precedent with its sustainable packaging.
