Saint Charles Apotheke

Right to the Roots

It’s hard to walk past Saint Charles Pharmacy on Gumpendorferstrasse 30 without at least stealing a glance at what’s inside. Old, dark wood cabinets and modern design elements create a truly special, comfortable atmosphere. And the wonderful, enchanting smell of regional herbs surely also plays a big part it in this!

The pharmacy in Vienna’s borough of Mariahilf, close to famous Naschmarkt, was founded in 1886 by Alfred Blumenthal. Since 2006 Alexander Ehrmann, pharmacist in the sixth generation, has been in charge of the tradition-steeped enterprise. His passion for developing high-quality natural remedies is the reason why the pharmacy has its own organic product line today: Saint Charles Cosmetics and Naturals. They are based on the teachings of Traditional European Medicine where body, mind, and soul are seen as inseparable and looked at as a whole. One particularly popular product is the pharmacist’s soap which smells of cloves and thyme and has a place of honour in many renowned restaurants and bars all across Vienna and which meets the highest skincare standards. By the way…the stylish bottles are perfect for being reused!

And for those who leave Saint Charles Apotheke wanting more, the amazing concept’s other family members will be just perfect. Diagonally opposite there’s Stain Charles Cosmothecary which offers pure natural cosmetics and even beauty treatments in an integrated hideaway; Saint Charles Complementary offers courses and workshops and the restaurant SCA33 treats the palate to delicious herb-inspired cuisine.
