“It’s a real art to make a cream that has a certain texture and feel. There are so many properties to consider in order to establish the right balance in a cream, and that’s something we have been working on for over thirty years.”

The Story of Retrouvé
More than just a brand, Retrouvé is part of a legacy. This exclusive collection of prestigious unisex skincare products was initially developed by beauty visionary Jami Morse Heidegger and husband, Klaus Heidegger, for their own personal use. The line wields new technologies and high-octane active ingredients in superior concentrations and unprecedented textures to set a new standard in luxury skincare. Trailblazers in the cosmetics industry, Jami and Klaus steered the family’s skincare line, Kiehl’s Since 1851, into a cult beauty brand after taking over the reins from Jami’s father, Aaron Morse, in 1988. Jami’s grandfather, Irving Morse, had acquired the original pharmacy in 1921, after apprenticing with and working for Mr. John Kiehl. Within three generations, the family business grew into one of the most iconic skincare brands of all time, ultimately leading to the company’s sale in 2000 to L’Oréal. Jami and Klaus worked closely with their chemist on a myriad of Kiehl’s products, after which the three reunited to embark on this deeply personal project - distinctly different from anything they had done previously.
About the skincare by Retrouvé:
Each of the four Retrouvé products is a unique custom blend of powerful ingredients that were selected for their ability to either protect, nourish or restore the vitality of skin. The synergistic effects of these ingredients and their ability to penetrate deeply into the skin strengthen their effectiveness, thereby creating the mastery of Retrouvé.
