It all began in 1928 with a passion for a very special medicinal plant and a great deal of commitment. More than 85 years later, SPEICK natural cosmetics stands for gentle, natural body care. Our products are still the only ones in the world to offer the unique effect created by the incomparable extract of the high alpine Speick plant.
SPEICK natural cosmetics
Our company founder Walter Rau was compelled to harness the benefits of the ancient Speick medicinal plant for human use. This motivation is still the common thread that runs through everything we do and is our driving force every day.
Today, we are able to look back on an established history that has seen us develop from an anthroposophically-oriented soap manufacturer into a modern natural cosmetics company. Our single company location in the region of Stuttgart has been an integral part of achieving our high level of quality from the very beginning.
The Speick medicinal plant
Speick products are the only products in the world that contain the unique Speick extract, which has been certified as being from biologically regulated wild harvesting since 2003. Speick has been prized for centuries for its harmonising effect. This small, inconspicuous plant is protected and cultivated as part of a conservation project in the Carinthian Alps (Nock Mountains Biosphere Reserve). It is harvested by hand exclusively for our Speick products.
It all started with Speick soap and today, Speick natural cosmetics include the ranges Speick Natural, Speick Natural Active, Speick Men, Speick Men Active and Speick Thermal Sensitiv. All products bearing the Speick name contain Speick plant extract, making each item unique. Our Made by SPEICK selection also offers a wide range of exquisite, special skin care products, with some seasonally featured items.
