Jurlique was founded in 1985 by Jurgen and Ulrike Klein, a German couple who migrated to Australia armed with their natural expertise – his as a biochemist, hers as a botanist – and a vision to create the purest skin care on earth. They knew that in order to grow the most potent herbs and botanicals, nature’s elements (earth, water, air and sun) had to be at their most pure. And so it came to be that Jurlique’s first farm was nestled in the pristine hills surrounding Adelaide. Today, Jurlique still grow the potent herbs and botanicals and manufacture their organic products in the Adelaide Hills.
Jurlique follow strict organic and biodynamic* farming principles. By working with nature in this way, Jurlique foster richer soil, grow healthier plants and create more efficacious products. The ingredients are free from synthetic chemicals, pesticides, herbicides and insecticides. And to preserve the perfection of nature, the crops are picked and sorted by hand.
Once picked, Jurlique’s farm-grown herbs and botanicals go through a unique extraction method called the Bio-Intrinsic process. This three-stage process draws out the potent elements present in the plants, isolates them, intensifies them and reformulates them to be greater than the sum of their parts. The Bio-Intrinsic process ensures no plant material is wasted and the extracts obtained combine to form a new, highly potent extract.
Jurlique continues to inspire people to wellbeing through a connection with nature. Jurlique believes in the power of nature to promote radiant, healthy skin.
