Following thier holiday tradition of 4 years, Kiehl launched the 2012 Holiday Collection in collaboration with artist, Kenny Scharf. 100% of Kiehl’s worldwide net profits, up to $200,000, will support children’s charities worldwide.
"In the United States, 100% of net profits will support RxArt, a non-profit national organization, committed to fostering artistic expression and awareness through the challenging, yet rewarding task of engaging young patients through contemporary art in pediatric hospitals. RxArt is dedicated to placing original fine art in patient, procedure and examination rooms of healthcare facilities, for the engagement and comfort of patients.
This collaboration is extra special for three reasons:
1.) Kenny Scharf created a special work for Kiehl’s, Globo Mundo, featured on labels for three sizes of Creme de Corps, and one size of our Creme de Corps Soy Milk & Honey Whipped Body Butter.
2.) This collection marks the debut of the first-ever fully-wrapped Kiehl’s product—the 16.8 oz Creme de Corps bottle is FULLY WRAPPED in Globo Mundo.
3.) Meet “Squirt!” Kiehl’s customers have the opportunity to own an actual piece of Kenny Scharf’s artwork with the Limited Edition Kenny Scharf Exclusive “Squirt” Collectible. “Squirt” is an emotive character often featured in Scharf’s artwork, and he has two different expressions, one on either side. Each “Squirt” is individually numbered, and includes a signed certificate of authenticity."
