As a child Dr Jurgen Klein was introduced to forest herbs by his grandfather. Even in poverty-stricken, post-war Germany, the value and magic of nature was clear to him. Based on this experience, he went on to delve into science, alchemy, chemistry, naturopathy, psychology and spirituality – all the while seeking to understand and unearth the true secrets of nature.
Moving to Australia in 1984, he founded the beauty brand Jurlique and became a pioneer in the field of health and wellness. In 2003 he sold his shares of Jurlique and moved to Hawaii, where Jurgen and his wife Karin created the tropical wellness and spa retreat Sullivan Estate.
