In 1821, a Bavarian priest by the name of Sebastian Kneipp did the unthinkable by curing himself of tuberculosis. At that time, no medical interventions could treat the disease, and so those who developed the illness typically died from its ravaging effects on the respiratory system. By using natural remedies, Father Sebastien managed to achieve what no doctor could do, and from that time onward, the priest devoted his life to developing herbal treatments for many conditions. Before his death, Father Sebastien turned his research over to a pharmacist, giving him permission to develop a line of remedies that would bear his name.
Kneipp offers products that avoid harsh chemicals, artificial colorants, chemical preservatives, synthetic fragrance and chemical sunscreens wherever possible.
