KNEIPP HEALTHY LIVING “The Anti-Cellulite Kneipp Kur” Treatment Purpose:
Anti-Cellulite Kneipp Kur products are based on the unique combination of grape seed oil that soothes and nourishes the skin, and the active ingredient in sandalwood fruit that stimulates the microcirculation. These products counteract loss of tonicity in the skin and tests have shown that they reduce the appearance of cellulite. The skin becomes noticeably and measurably smoother and firmer after treatment.
This holistic concept of treatment combines the Kneipp botanicals of Grape Seed Oil, Sandalwood Fruit, Sunflower Oil, Shea Butter and Avocado to combat cellulite, moisturize and smooth skin while bringing about piece-of mind and relaxation. While marked results in the appearance of the skin are present after the treatment, continuous use of the Kneipp Anti Cellulite Kur products reduce the appearance of cellulite after only 14 days of use.
