“The toll of time is growing. Unhealthy, high-stress work practices, polluted water, air contaminated with dust, gases and acids, not to mention radioactivity, which may become a key problem in the future. All of this causes harm of an exceptional nature and affects our skin to varying degrees. Our food supply has also been damaged, such as by pesticides, mineral fertilising practices and preservatives.” Walter Rau
The observations of SPEICK's founder, Walter Rau, sound like an analysis of current environmental damage. But he was already saying these things back in 1958. This awareness was enough to motivate Rau to develop natural cosmetics. SPEICK's goal remains the same today: To develop natural cosmetics that nourish and care for the health, vitality and natural beauty of every person. They use raw materials from biologically regulated cultivation whenever the quality and quantity is available. In particular, SPEICK harness valuable speick plant extract. Speick is a small alpine plant which has unique properties – it relaxes without tiring and revitalises the body, mind and soul. In keeping with their holistic philosophy, SPEICK make use of the entire plant. The Speick plant’s prized extract is carefully drawn from the plant’s small yet strong roots and used in all SPEICK products.
SPEICK were a founding member of the first German natural cosmetics certification system (BDIH). Their first products were BDIH-certified in 2001. Since 2014, newly developed products are certified by the international COSMOS standard. Since January 2017, the COSMOS standard for new developments is mandatory – this applies to all members of BDIH, Ecocert, Cosmebio, ICEA and Soil Association. Together, these organisations represent the largest global system for the certification of genuine natural cosmetics.
Today, the large majority of SPEICK products are certified according to the COSMOS standard.For more information visit www.speick.de
