Kiehl’s started in the East Village of Manhattan in New York City back in 1851 where it was counded by John Kiehl where it was then taken over by Irving Morse when he bought the store in 1921. Morse would then develop and grow the brand where among some his products, the Blue Astringent Herbal Lotion and the Crème de Corps are still some of the most popular products today. Despite his involvement in product development, it was when his son Aaron Morse took over in the 1960s that Kiehl’s began gaining momentum and recognition.

Jami Morse Heidegger, the daughter of Aaron would then take over in 1988 and marketed the brand so successfully that today, Kiehl’s became one of the most renowned skin care brands in the world. In 2000, due to overwhelming demand for Kiehl’s products, L’Oreal took over who truly helped with the production of Kiehl’s product line to fulfil the fast rising demands of its customers. L’Oreal then grew the brand further where it positioned Kiehl’s as a luxury land and preserved its traditional roots.
