Kiehl's Since 1851
Kiehl's: Behind The Brand
Makeup artists love Kiehl's for its award-winning, natural formulations and the nourishing benefits they provide. The mecca of all wellness brands got its start in 1851 as a dedicated apothecary for the citizens of New York City. Decades later, pharmacist John Kiehl and his apprentice, Irving Morse, transitioned the business into a full-service pharmacy, stocking teas, herbs, honeys and the first-ever Kiehl's brand products. Many of today's bestselling products were first created in the 1960s.
