Heritage

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. We continue this tradition today and develop the beauty brands of tomorrow.

SCHERK has continuously relied on its 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.
