Since 1906, SCHERK has been a pioneer in skincare and perfumery.

Throughout its history, SCHERK has proved to be one of the most avant-garde brands both in terms of product innovation, as well as product design. Waterproof mascara and all-body powders in the 1930s, as well as cutting edge design are examples of Scherk’s heritage.

SCHERK has continuously relied on this exact heritage and vision to re-invent and re-position itself, especially in the aftermath of the 2nd World War and after pivotal developments in the beauty market. We are now continuing with this tradition – together with the Scherk family, Irene Scherk in particular – by developing new and innovative consumer solutions and product lines.
