Honouring Our Past

We’ve always been proud to serve our customers the finest formulations for skin and hair developed with natural ingredients and the most advanced technologies.

In 2021, it’s an honour to celebrate the 170th anniversary of a family venture that started on the corner of 13th Street and Third Avenue in New York City’s East Village.

“This is a special moment for us to celebrate the formulas beloved by our customers over the Kiehl’s generations. Scents can transport us to a delightful journey back in time, and we invite you to experience our heritage first-hand with some of our iconic concoctions.”

“Enjoy a selection of the intoxicating and sought-after essence oils offered in our apothecary during the 1920s, our classic skin-soothing rosewater toner originally introduced in the 1960’s, and our gently refreshing glycerin bars heralded throughout the 1980s.”
