In the mid-1800s, tuberculosis often was a veritable death sentence, but Sebastian Kneipp, afflicted with a pronounced case of the disease, managed to cure himself based on information he uncovered in an old hydrotherapy tome. After a regimen of regular dips in the Danube River, Kneipp found himself shed of the affliction and was thereby inspired to explore natural remedies for a variety of ailments. His holistic and naturopathic investigations of water and botanical based therapies continue to inspire the company that bears his name, a business venture that received his blessing back in 1891.
The skincare products offered in the Kneipp line have been formulated in the spirit of five guiding principles of quality dermatological health and well-being: water, plants, exercise, nutrition, and balance. The brand eschews such harsh ingredients as parabens, silicone, and mineral oils as well as components derived from animal products. Instead, its diverse skin and body care products get their therapeutic and rejuvenating strengths from dermatologically tested and environmentally friendly formulations anchored by botanical extracts and other natural agents.
The ingredients Kneipp turns to include everything from citric acid (important for pH regulation) and hayflower extract to almond protein and vanilla extract. Whether it's a moisturizer for rough, parched feet or a spruce and pine imbued bath formulation, these products offer rich, soothing, and nourishing therapies informed by the naturally healing and fortifying resources of Mother Nature.
