Speick – New skincare range

For 95 years, Speick soap has been synonymous with gentle cleansing and care for hands and face, both in the private and medical sectors. Now the natural cosmetics manufacturer from Leinfelden-Echterdingen is introducing a completely new line for skin and facial care, the “Speick Pure Series”. Three creams, a serum and a facial oil complement the existing Pure body care range with particularly mild ingredients and no fragrances or colourings.

All products are certified as natural cosmetics and contain only carefully harvested and processed ingredients from nature’s healing garden. The speciality of the gentle facial care is the extract of the cherimoya fruit, a tree species originally native to South America, which has a calming effect and protects against itching and redness.

The skin cream is available in three intensity levels, from light to rich. The Deep Hydration Serum moisturises and protects the skin from environmental influences and damage caused by blue screen light. The Balancing Face Oil is available for a portion of extra care. The nourishing face oil with fair-trade organic argan oil and organic jojoba oil strengthens the skin barrier and ensures an even finish without being greasy. The cherimoya extract is obtained from trees that are not suitable for food production because they are overripe or have bruises. The “super fruit of the Incas”, which only thrives in subtropical but dry habitats, is mainly sourced by Speick from Spain.

The real speik (Valeriana celtica) is visually rather inconspicuous, but has a strong scent

The plant that gives the manufacturer its name, the real speik, is a perennial valerian plant with a short growth period that occurs in the Eastern Alps at an altitude of 1,800 metres above sea level and spreads an intense valerian scent. The plant is harvested by hand under strict conditions by licensed alpine farmers and delivered to the traditional Swabian company, which processes the raw material gently and sustainably and uses it in its products.
