The Saint Charles Pharmacy in Vienna has been located at Nr. 30 Gumpendorfer Straße in Vienna´s Mariahilf district since the beginning of the 20th century. However, it´s only since the 19th of November 2006 that have we been called “Saint Charles”. Founder and pharmacist Alexander Ehrmann, has continued his family tradition as a sixth generation chemist.
Saint Charles is not just a natural pharmacy with a quirky style, but much more a concept that encompasses the whole human being and combines traditional remedies with modern concepts. With its own product line Saint Charles not only focuses on authenticity and organics, but also follows the teachings of traditional European medicine: the herbs that surround us can be used as remedies, in cosmetics or for eating. The Saint Charles world therefore, consists of different institutions: The Saint Charles Pharmacy, the Saint Charles Cosmothecary, the Saint Charles Hideaway, the Saint Charles Complementary Health Center, the Saint Charles Alimentary and the Refuge in Prigglitz.
Key aspects of the Vienna pharmacy (among others):
The SAINT CHARLES Cosmothecary is the “sister” of the SAINT CHARLES pharmacy and is located directly opposite Nr. 33 Gumpendorfer Straße. We have implemented a very clear and transparent natural cosmetics concept over a space of almost 100 square meters. Here we offer natural cosmetics of the highest standards. The producers and suppliers must, on the one hand meet strict ecological and ethical criteria and on the other, have products of outstanding, purely organic quality.
As diverse as the human being is, so too is the interdisciplinary range of the Saint Charles Complementary
The term derives from the Latin Word “complementum” and refers to a multidisciplinary range, supplementary to conventional medicine of methods and practises from traditional European medicine, traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and Ayurvedic medicines, as well as the areas of yoga and psychotherapy.
Saint Charles Hideaway – natural cosmetics treatments
Attached to the SAINT CHARLES Cosmothecary is our little hideout, the SAINT CHARLES Hideaway.
Here “beauty” is applied. The treatments in SAINT CHARLES Hideaway are based on a lifestyle orientation towards health and sustainability. Right to the roots. In our cosmetic and full body treatments we deliberately refrain from using conventional, petrochemical cosmetic products, and instead we exclusively use products of outstanding and pure, organic quality.
