Adler Apotheke – the Eagle Pharmacy – is the oldest in the Styrian capital; the first written mention of it comes from 1535. Despite its extraordinarily long history, however, its philosophy and products are right up to date; all of its cosmetics face a series of rigorous tests, though not on animals.
