“Retrouvé is the highest expression
of passion, expertise, and performance in skincare.”

From an early age, Jami joined her father and grandfather in developing countless beloved products for Kiehl’s. Throughout her career, Jami has formulated over 100 products and is responsible for some of the most celebrated and best-selling products of all time.

Retrouvé was founded by Jami Morse Heidegger and Klaus Heidegger with the goal of creating a unisex skincare line without compromise in quality, price, or effectiveness.

Together, Jami and Klaus grew the family's skincare line, Kiehl's Since 1851, to cult beauty brand status after taking the reins from Jami's father in 1988⁠—ultimately leading the company's sale in 2001 to L'Oreal. Opening a new chapter, Klaus developed a successful physiological footwear company as Jami focused on raising their three children, philanthropic work, and embracing a holistic lifestyle of nutrition, health, and beauty.

All the while, serial entrepreneurs Jami and Klaus continued refining their vision of what a performance-driven skincare line should be. After over a decade of testing formulations, ingredient sourcing, and in-demand small-batch products for friends, they clamored for the Heideggers to officially launch Retrouvé. 

What began as a private endeavor to create a “pro-aging” performance skincare line is now a prestige brand available to those determined to elevate the appearance of their skin.

Retrouvé is the highest expression of passion, expertise, and performance in skincare. We have a deep commitment to sustainability and support for our natural resources and endeavor to minimize our environmental impact through the ingredients that we use and the way in which we package our formulations. We aim to make the world a bit better than we found it by reducing our carbon footprint and by conducting our business in an ethical and kind manner as well as through promoting diversity and equality for all and giving back to our communities.


Made with clinically effective concentrations of anti-aging ingredients set in otherworldly textures, Retrouvé works harmoniously with the body's natural regenerative processes to optimize the skin's ability to nourish, strengthen, and repair itself.

In addition to sourcing the highest grade of ingredients from trusted suppliers, Retrouvé also incorporates produce harvested directly from the Heidegger family farm in Malibu.

Retrouvé is an elegant balance of science and nature. Klaus has been growing avocados and other produce on the family farm according to permaculture's green principles for over a decade.

Here, Jami and Klaus have sourced ranch-harvested avocados used in Retrouvé's Luminous Cleansing Elixir,  Baume Ultime Oil, and Dermal Defense Hand Cream.

Retrouvé plans to cultivate and include more raw ingredients from their private orchards, affording the brand an exceptional level of control over the quality of its product.

in some products, we utilize a signature water-free formulation.
