Our Story.

A leader in skincare since 1871.

First things first, we’re not a cosmetics company. We’re a skincare company (yes, the country’s oldest). We specialize in creating therapeutic solutions for damaged skin. Rather than simply “making over” your skin, we develop science that works to enhance your body’s natural inclination to regenerate healthy skin cells. This makes you healthy in appearance, in spirit and in fact.

Columbia Skincare.
Optimal Skin Wellness & Beauty


Columbia skin creams are formulated to the highest level of efficacy – our own. Promoting skin wellness is at the heart of every product we offer. Our healing creams treat and cure unhealthy conditions of the skin. They boost the body’s natural abilities to heal. We want users of our products to look and feel better each and every day.

“I recommend using this concentrate after chemical peels, laser treatments, and microneedling, or to offset the sometimes irksome effects of retinoids and exfoliants, as it restores the barrier quickly and helps promote healing.”

– Dr. Whitney Bowe, leading NYC dermatologist
