THE HISTORY OF KNEIPP®
The lifelong naturopathic studies of the health pioneer Sebastian Kneipp laid the foundation in 1891 for the emergence and development of Kneipp GmbH. Today, as an internationally operating company headquartered in Würzburg, we export high-quality medicinal products and nutritional supplements as well as body care and bath products to many countries throughout the world. We present ourselves as a modern health brand with traditional values.
KNEIPP® works. Naturally!
The new development and continuous optimization of our products take place through our "Research and Development" department. Here, highly qualified scientists and pharmacy technicians work hand-in-hand to develop products which are precisely tailored to consumers' needs. In this process, we allow the latest scientific knowledge from basic research to be incorporated in our product development.
Research and development
From the very beginning, research has been of primary importance at Kneipp. For this reason, this area has been additionally strengthened in recent years and the cosmetics division has undergone expansion in particular. This is demonstrated in the founding of the "Kneipp® Team of Skin Experts" in 2010. Here our in-house researchers have a very close interdisciplinary exchange with world renowned scientists.
The team of skin experts
In keeping with our mission statement "proven efficacy with optimal tolerance", it is our goal to develop effective body care products with very good tolerance. In cooperation with schools of higher education and independent testing facilities, we prove the efficacy of our products through extensive scientific studies. The very good skin tolerance is "double verified" for each product, that is, in each case, we conduct two independent allergological tests on volunteers.
Scientific studies / Ingredients
Our ingredients are selected very carefully and in a way that is targeted and protects resources. Through the combination of high-quality plant oils and extracts with dermatologically effective additional components, we address a wide variety of skin conditions in a targeted way with our products and we can thus support the functions of the skin and improve the appearance of the skin.
