The Brauer Story

Brauer History

Brauer embraces the past and looks to the future by combining traditionally effective homeopathic medicines, herbal medicines, and naturally gentle skincare with modern science and a genuine understanding of what you want. 

Every day, Australian-made and owned Brauer Natural Medicines are trusted by thousands of Australians to support their body’s own healing abilities — naturally. For you, that means feeling your vital best every day. 

The rich history behind Brauer tells you a lot about the company today. 

Brauer began as a South Australian family pharmacy with a focus on natural medicines and has grown into a leading brand that is available in over 5000 pharmacies and health food stores across Australia. 

In 1929, Pharmacist Hermann Brauer started his small pharmacy where he sold both orthodox medicine and his own natural homeopathic remedies. Hermann became well-known for his high quality natural formulations, which he tailored to meet his customers’ needs. 

Hermann’s son, Warren, also a pharmacist, extended the family tradition and worked with his wife to create a full production and laboratory facility in South Australia’s Barossa Valley, where Brauer Natural Medicine is still based today.

Combining traditional wisdom and modern science.

All Brauer Natural Medicines are developed and produced in the company’s pharmaceutical manufacturing facility following a strict code of practice for medicines. This is where Brauer also provides contract manufacturing for complementary medicines and personal care products. The facility includes a homoeopathic dispensary where custom-made remedies are prepared to order for healthcare professionals. 

 

Today, Brauer invests in research to find out what types of health problems concern everyday Australians. Our formulation experts then combine traditional wisdom with modern science to develop gently effective products to meet your needs. It’s all about helping you to feel a bit healthier every day— and that’s exactly what we’ve been doing since 1929. 

Based on this philosophy, our products incorporate gentle herbal and homeopathic ingredients that are carefully selected primarily from natural plant and simple chemical or mineral substances. Homeopathic ingredients are diluted micro-doses of substances that are thought to stimulate the body’s physiological reactions and help restore good health through relief of symptoms of common conditions such as allergies, colds, flu, stress, arthritis, muscle pain and teething.

Developed from traditional holistic principles dating back more than 200 years, homeopathy is a system of medicine based on a natural law or theory of treating like with like.

Arnica Montana

Renowned for its anti-inflammatory and wound healing properties, Arnica is a perennial plant from the sunflower family found in the woods and mountain pastures of Central Europe and North America. The yellow flowers which contain a volatile oil are collected at the end of each summer and dried.  Extracts of the flowers are used in creams and lotions to relieve muscle pains, injuries, strains and bruises.

Passion Flower

Elaborate and eye-catching Passion flower is an herbal remedy from the flowering and fruiting herb top of the plant Passiflora incarnata for conditions related to sleeplessness, insomnia and nervousness. Interestingly, the name of the plant originates from its appearance rather than its purpose, based on a resemblance to the crown of thorns that Jesus wore during the ‘passion’.

German Chamomile

With medicinal usage known since ancient Egypt, German Chamomile is a well-known herbal remedy.  Recognisable through its distinctive aromatic odour, the plant features in countless perfume and aromatherapy products. This gentle and versatile flower has found its most useful application in relieving stressful states of restlessness, irritability and pains, particularly those experienced by babies and children, such as teething and colic.

Distinct essence

Providing traditional based and natural acting medicines for gentle relief of common ailments in tune with the body’s innate healing abilities is at our core.  We are proud to continue in a family tradition of producing specialised formulations based on homeopathic remedies in the same breathtaking region where the Brauer story began over 85 years ago, the Barossa Valley of South Australia.
