Our story began in 1985. Jurlique was founded 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.
The Kleins had searched the world for the perfect parcel of land to build their dream. 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.
The name Jurlique is a phonetic combination of our founders’ names. What was once their two-person operation – Ulrike grew and picked the herbs and botanicals, Jurgen formulated and manufactured the products – is now sold in more than 20 countries across the globe. We still grow our potent herbs and botanicals and manufacture our organic products in the Adelaide Hills.
“Our vision was to formulate and manufacture the purest skin care products available based on the healing properties of nature and to inspire people to health and wellbeing… Jurlique was driven by this vision. We did not follow a trend, we were trendsetters.” Ulrike Klein
Jurlique continues to inspire people to wellbeing through a connection with nature. We believe in the power of nature to promote radiant, healthy skin.
We follow strict organic and biodynamic* farming principles. By working with nature in this way, we foster richer soil, grow healthier plants and create more efficacious products. Our ingredients are free from synthetic chemicals, pesticides, herbicides and insecticides. To preserve the perfection of nature, we pick and sort our crops by hand.
Once picked, our 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.
