The Full story
Jurlique have formulated the purest skincare products based on the healing properties of nature, to inspire people to health and wellbeing. They craft each product to capture the healing power of plants and reconnect each user to nature. The Jurlique skincare ritual does more than simply nourish your skin. It also soothes your soul, and helps you feel balanced.
THE POWER OF NATURE
Jurlique believe that when it comes to skincare, health and wellbeing, nature is the answer. Nature has the ultimate power to create, nurture and soothe. This is why they capture this power and distil it into their skincare. Every Jurlique product is carefully crafted in line with this philosophy, so you can enjoy skincare that’s naturally potent and pure.
THE JURLIQUE STORY
The Founders Dr Jürgen Klein and his wife Ulrike had always been passionate believers in the healing power of nature. Their vision was to create a pure and natural skincare range that would combine the ancient arts of alchemy and homeopathy to reconnect people to nature, and inspire them to wellbeing. Ulrike and Jürgen knew they had the ability to create such a range. Jürgen was a biochemist, Ulrike a botanist, and both had grown up surrounded by nature. But this was back in the 1980:s, when “natural” and “organic” skincare was unheard of. Beauty products came from the lab, not the land. They refused to be swayed from their belief that nothing manufactured could come close to what nature could provide when it came to truly healthy, beautiful skin. So they began their search for the perfect place to realise their dream.
From Germany to the Adelaide Hills
After searching the world, they discovered the unspoiled Adelaide Hills in South Australia – and found the pristine land they needed to establish their farm. They left Germany and the lives they knew behind, and set off to the other side of the world with their children. They decided to call their new brand “Jurlique” – a combination of both their first names. Today, the products are sold in more than 19 countries around the world.
PURITY AND POTENCY
Jurlique care so deeply about the purity and potency of their skin care that they control every step of the production process – from growing and extracting their own ingredients, to formulating the products.
As well as growing the ingredients free from artificial fertilisers, pesticides and herbicides, they go a step beyond organic farming by working in harmony with nature to plant, cultivate and harvest their crops. When the ingredients are at their most naturally potent, they gently harvest them by hand.
Jurlique’s team of plant scientists research the latest natural skincare discoveries and technologies, formulate their products, and conduct clinical studies to make sure their skincare is effective and safe. This is what jurlique call their “Seed to Skin” process, and it’s how they make sure you can enjoy pure, potent and natural skin care.
THE JURLIQUE RITUAL
Jurlique believe your skincare routine should do more than simply nourish your skin. It should also soothe your soul. That’s why they designed the Jurlique ritual to nurture you inside and out. As you gently warm and press each product into your skin, the living energy and uplifting aromas released help you reconnect to nature.
Jurlique’s products are designed to not only give each person radiant, healthy skin, but also the vital sense of wellbeing that comes from being connected to nature, the people you care about – and yourself.
The ritual begins with their unique approach to cleansing. One of its key steps involves adding a few drops of an aromatic Hydrating Essence to water, and gently pressing the soothing blend over your face and neck using a warm, damp cloth. As you breathe deeply and enjoy the soothing aroma, you can feel yourself start to relax.
Their Mists also do far more than simply tone your skin. As you close your eyes and gently spritz your face, their fragrant floral extracts uplift your senses as they refresh and hydrate your skin.
Each serum, oil or cream is warmed between the fingertips to activate their natural plant oils, increase absorption, and enhance the sensorial experience. Apply the products to your face and neck using a gentle press and release motion.
THE BIODYNAMIC FARM
The Jurlique Farm is not just organic but biodynamic and certified by the National Association for Sustainable Agriculture, Australia. By growing the ingredients biodynamically, they can capture the life force of the land and the healing power of nature, and harness this in their skincare.
Biodynamics is a truly sustainable approach to farming that respects and cares for the Earth. It goes a step beyond organic farming by working in harmony with nature to grow plants that are naturally healthy, potent and pure.
Jurlique also harvest their crops when they’re naturally at their peak. They handpick their flowers in spring and autumn, when they're in full bloom. They handpick their leaf crops in spring, when they're green and full of energy. And they harvest their root crops in winter, when they're rich in nutrients drawn down from the rest of the plant.
By caring for the environment, biodynamic farming helps make the soil healthier and more fertile year after year - so you can keep enjoying the purest skin care on Earth.

ACCLIMATION OF PRODUCTS
Start by introducing one product at a time when switching to new skincare products. It takes approximately 2-8 weeks for the skin to acclimate to new products, and for you to see an improvement. Initially, you may experience worsening of the skin before it gets better; dryness, impurities and blemishes are common. This cleansing is normal and happens because the skin is wearing off the previous products. If you experience lasting discomfort, stop the treatment and contact one of our estheticians.
General Contraindications for products containing active ingredients (e.g. AHA products) If you are still using exfoliating products from a different line of products; stop using these 2 weeks prior to starting a new treatment Do not exfoliate on sunburned skin (red/irritated) or newly waxed skin Do not use if your are taking prescription medication for acne If you are using prescription medication for acne e.g. Roacutan your should stop taking the medicine at least 6 months prior to using products with active ingredients If you are using topical creams to treat acne e.g. Aberela, Retinova, Zorac, Differin you should stop using the product at least 2-3 months prior to exfoliating your skin.
