Dateline:  Crawley, UK, 5 February 2014.

Kiehl’s Since 1851, the New York City-based apothecary and creator of fine quality skin and hair care, will be launching its products on board British Airways starting May 2014 through Scorpio Worldwide.

Kiehl’s old-world, customer-centric heritage has been at the heart of every product and service debut over the company’s 162-year history – from ingredient research and formula safety testing to localised store decors – all of which are tailored to the particular needs of patrons in their local communities.

Kiehl's goal is always front of mind: to serve patrons in an attentive, educational environment that offers the company’s tried-and-true skin care products enjoyed by customers the world over.

Kiehl's was founded as an old-world apothecary in New York's East Village neighbourhood. Its unique, extensive background represents a blend of cosmetic, pharmaceutical, herbal, and medicinal knowledge developed and advanced through the generations. Using this knowledge, Kiehl’s has developed a range of skincare, body care, and grooming products, using formulas based on proven and effective botanical extracts sourced from around the world and chosen to be truly beneficial to the skin rather than for aesthetic merit, with minimal preservatives:

Squalane: contained in the Ultra Facial Cream is a highly refined moisturizing oil steam-distilled from the olive. It is silky to the touch and mimics the natural oils found in skin, allowing for easy absorption. This signature Kiehl’s ingredient helps to restore skin’s natural moisture balance and keep it ultra-soft and supple.

Lavender Oil: used in the Midnight Recovery Concentrate, possesses a calming & anti-depressive effect. It helps soothe inflamed or irritated skin while helping reduce skin blotchiness for a more even look. It creates a brighter and more radiant look to the skin.

Butcher's Broom: which improves microcirculation and reduces inflammation to soothe skin and reduce puffiness is contained in Midnight recovery eye.

Kiehl’s will be featured on board British Airways with these 3-star products starting May 2014.  It is the first UK airline to carry the brand.

Commenting on the launch, Richard Kennedy, Scorpio Worldwide’s Sales, and Marketing Director, said “We are delighted to be able to announce the listing of this popular and prestigious brand on board British Airways.  It is the first UK airline to list these award winning products on board and we’re looking forward to what we are sure will be a very successful launch.  We are hopeful other UK airline listings will follow in the coming weeks.”
