"We are excited to be welcoming Kiehl's to Sephora Canada" said Jane Nugent, VP merchandising at Sephora Canada.

Long before Kiehl's and Sephora joined forces, Kiehl's was founded as an old-world apothecary in New York's East Village neighborhood. After years as an ambitious apprentice, John Kiehl purchased the business and began operations under the Kiehl name, serving the burgeoning New York community with unique herbal remedies. In 1921, John Kiehl's apprentice, Mr. Irving 'Doc' Morse, purchased the pharmacy. Doc Morse, a pharmacist and herbologist, then passed the apothecary on to his son, Aaron, who grew up at Kiehl's and became a chemist himself. Aaron raised his daughter, Jamie, at Kiehl's among the 'family' of employees and would go on to earn her own degree in biology. Over generations, the Morse family fostered Kiehl's longstanding commitment to unique formulations using only the finest ingredients and service to our neighborhood communities.

Kiehl's unique, extensive background represents a blend of cosmetic, pharmaceutical, herbal and medicinal knowledge developed and passed on through the generations.  Over the years, longtime customer favorite formulations such as Ultra Facial Cream, Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado, Musk Oil, Lip Balm #1, Creme de Corps, Blue Astringent Herbal Lotion, have been joined by new formulas such as Super Multi-Corrective Cream, Daily Reviving Concentrate, Calendula Deep Cleaning Foaming Face Wash, Facial Fuel, Midnight Recovery Concentrate, and Dermatologist Solutions, and have all been created with uniquely efficacious, natural ingredients and the education and knowledge culled from generations of research and requests from our customers.

Civic responsibility and a commitment to helping others has also been an intrinsic part of the Kiehl's heritage, with a focus on four core pillar causes – HIV/AIDS research, environmental issues, children's well-being, and women's health. Annual collaborations and projects such as Earth Month partnerships with the Canadian Wildlife Federation and Tree Canada, limited edition products to benefit the Tegan and Sara foundation, collaborations with the Musicounts and the Simple Plan foundation have allowed Kiehl's to heighten its customers awareness of vital social issues, and allowed the customers themselves to participate in the fund-raising efforts.
