The creation of a quality brand In 1868, in Lübbecke in the Westphalia region of Germany, the pharmacist Eduard Gerlach took over his father Ludwig’s colonial goods store and expanded it with a drugstore. With his drugstore, which was the first of its kind in the county at that time, Eduard Gerlach laid the foundation for a prospering family business, which, with the brand name GEHWOL, has obtained international recognition and has become a synonym for foot care.
A new era of foot care began. Eduard Gerlach received numerous international honours for his “Preservative cream”.
Today GEHWOL is renowned in the spa industry to have "Everything to Care for the Feet" and is a major award winner worldwide for their innovative formulas for happy, healthy feet.
