The original Kiehl’s apothecary first served customers at the corner of 13th Street and Third Avenue in New York City.
In 1921, Mr. Irving Morse, John Kiehl’s apprentice, took over the business and expanded the offerings to a full-service pharmacy, stocking teas, herbs, tinctures, honeys, and the first-ever Kiehl brand products, including the Original Musk Oil, our signature scent.
Irving Morse made “Try Before You Buy” the pharmacy’s unofficial motto. This principle of personalized customer service, together with generous sampling, has remained a Kiehl’s tradition for more than 95 years.
Kiehl’s introduces a collection of advanced skincare formulated by Kiehl’s chemists (and developed in collaboration with an advisory panel of leading dermatologists) to address specific skin concerns.
Kiehl’s nature-inspired, scientifically-proven formulas are powerful yet safe and help improve overall skin quality for visibly healthier-looking skin.
