Gehwol Foot Care


A little history on Gehwol Foot Care

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.

Eduard Gerlach is rightly so considered to be a pioneer of modern foot care, due to the fact that he developed the first industrially manufactured cream for the prevention and alleviation of foot ailments. Personal experience and professional knowledge were of great assistance to him.

A new era of foot care began. Eduard Gerlach received numerous international honours for his “Preservative cream”.
