About

Genesis

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 her 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.

Formulated to maintain the functioning of the living cells of the dermis and infused with ingredients scientifically identified for their preventative properties, Retrouvé represents an anthology of over 75 years of collective experience, research, and collaboration resulting in a super-luxurious bespoke skincare line distilled from this extraordinary family’s deep knowledge and aesthetic vision of skincare.

 

PREVENTIVE, NOURISHING,
AND REPARATIVE SKINCARE

Retrouvé incorporates advanced skincare technologies and high concentrations of clinically-proven potent ingredients in a unique delivery system that penetrates the epidermis, allowing these powerful proprietary blends to pass through and nourish the dermis.

As new cells rise through the epidermal layers of the skin, they undergo multiple stages of cell differentiation - a process that dramatically alters their size, shape, function and responsiveness to cellular repair and regeneration signals.

The health and appearance of the skin begins with strong communication

and robust nutrient exchanges between the epidermis and dermis.

The capacity for these two main layers of skin to sustain effective levels of cell activity plays a pivotal role in the rate of cell regeneration and overall skin longevity.

Over time, the slowing of cell response and movement, along with damage to skin from sun exposure and free radicals, leads to a weakening of the core functions necessary to maintain youthful, radiant skin.

Retrouvé works harmoniously with these natural regenerative processes to optimize the skin’s ability to nourish, strengthen, and repair itself.
