Our story

An enduring passion for skincare

We’ve been passionate about skin health since Stiefel began in 1847 in Europe, and we were the first specialist dermatology company to export its products all over the world. Over 170 years later, Stiefel provides an integrated portfolio of effective prescription and daily skincare products to help millions of people treat and relieve skin conditions.


We learn more every day about people’s experiences with skin health. Our unique approach is underpinned by our long-standing, trusted relationship with consumers and dermatology experts.

As part of GSK, we have global reach and unrivalled access to leading research and development capabilities. Our products are distributed in over 130 countries. We seek the best ideas, new thinking and discovery by collaborating with our worldwide network of academic and industry partners. They provide invaluable new perspectives and specialist expertise.
