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.
More than 115 years after the priest's death, the skin care range his work led to remains a trusted collection amongst men and women throughout the world. The Kneipp skin care range contains formulas designed to treat common conditions that plague the complexion and the rest of the body. All of the products in the collection use pure water and plant extracts to achieve results, making the Kneipp lineup pure, natural and safe for all skin types.
Kneipp meets our natural beauty standards with a high concentration of quality natural botanicals while keeping harsh chemicals to a minimum.
