Since 1999 I have personally witnessed the amazing and powerful effects that natural, bio-active formulations can have on improving peoples’ skin. Even in 2018, the research and work carried out by my father, Dr. M Schiele, still holds true. His bio-medical research centred heavily on factual and century-old studies to identify and test which natural and bio-active substances positively impact on peoples’ health. Early research areas included agricultural biology which led to human biology - including immunology and fertility - and in the late 90’s, dermatology.
It was in dermatology where Dr. Schiele recognised that many sufferers of common skin issues - especially dry atopic skin complaints - were not able to treat their condition effectively. They were on a constant merry-go- round of ineffective products that did little for the symptoms and offered no long-term control and management of skin problems. It was this dissatisfaction that caused Dr. Schiele to research a new way of thinking and provide an alternative. I personally recall customers who suffered for over 30 years being in complete disbelief at having finally found relief with Dr. Schiele’s innovations.
Dr. Schiele created a series of colloidal spray products that contained essential minerals, oils and vitamins mixed as a liquid suspension to offer an alternative to sticky creams and ointments. Not only were these products more practical to use, but their ability to absorb in to the skin meant that users experienced rapid relief from dry and atopic skin complaints and symptoms.
The Salcura brand was born and Dr. Schiele investigated multiple other areas of skin health Over the first few years Dr. Schiele developed products for dry and atopic skin both for adults and children, solutions for acne, oral products as well as other novel and niche skin and health products. The areas of key interest were creating solutions as an alternative to products which were often highly synthetic, with side effects offering little to no long-term benefit.
Since 2006 Salcura Natural Skin Therapy has strengthened its brand by understanding the needs of its customers and developing product ranges that still fundamentally resemble the original ethos that Dr. Schiele had: safe, effective, and natural. A quote from the famous Professor Sir Robert Winston always reminds me of why Salcura has been so successful. Sir Winston once said that “mankind has not and will not create anything better than the body’s own ability to heal and regenerate itself. All we need to do is provide it with the right tools to do so.” And so, it is with Salcura that we must provide the body with the vital nutrients that will alleviate problems, but more than anything, strengthen it and increase the chances of fighting off illness and disease. Salcura products contribute to this vital part of the bodies own healing, repair and regeneration process for long-term control and management of skin health.
Dr. Schiele has left us with his wonderful product concepts and ways of thinking that will continue to shape our brand. His eye for detail and high quality remains part of our core values and we will continue to innovate and work hard to offer our loyal Salcura customers award-winning products. Salcura is adapting to future challenges with some of Europe’s leading cosmetic, skincare scientists so that around the world people can improve their skin and quality of life, naturally.
