America’s Oldest Skin Care Company Celebrates Historic Milestone

Written by  

Legacy brand and leading innovator since 1871, Columbia Skincare has 150-years of healing history

During the span of a century and a half, The F.C. Sturtevant Company has introduced an iconic antiseptic powder which prevented and cured skin irritations on millions of people and developed the first topical treatments for acne, contact dermatitis, and in aiding the renewal of skin tissue using fermented bacteria. “These products continue to meet the highest efficacious standards of our founder, Francis Crayton Sturtevant,” observed CEO Steven Rosenfeld.” For the past 150 years our focus has remained on innovating skincare products under the Columbia SkinCare brand that promote healthy, beautiful skin.”

“We have always approached skincare believing that nature holds the best medicine. That belief, in conjunction with an unprecedented 150 years of skin science and research, gives us a unique advantage in our campaign for healthy skin,” stated Dr. James B. Ryan, Vice-President of product development.

Today, Columbia SkinCare is a trusted voice that respects the intelligence of its customers. Sometimes a little wry. Sometimes even a bit mischievous . Confident and sure in ourselves and the results we deliver to our customers. Always respectful of our customers desire for healthy, beautiful skin and the investment they make in it.

“Our Company has succeeded for a century and a half by combining nature’s best curative ingredients with our unsurpassed scientific knowledge and research to innovate products that just simply work,” said Mr. Rosenfeld. “It doesn’t sound very exciting, until you’ve tried them,” he added.

As the Company looks to the future, they see a paradigm change occurring within the skincare industry and medical innovation in general based on the increased use of microbiology, biotechnology, and AI in product development. “We plan to have an active role in creating a new healthcare paradigm,” said Dr. Ryan.
