As part of Kiehl’s continuing effort to give back to the community, with every 2020 Lunar New Year Limited Edition Ultra Facial Cream 125ml sold, Kiehl’s will donate  US$1 (up to US$30,000) to non-profit organisation Jane Goodall Institute Singapore.

The donation will support student-initiated activities under its Roots & Shoots programme, which encourages and empowers young individuals to do their part in solving human, animal welfare, and environmental problems in their communities.

“With a specially curated, customer-centric experience, guests are transported to the Kiehl’s universe upon stepping into the pop-up, and are immersed in the discovery of Kiehl’s best-selling products through multiple digital touchpoints,” said Kiehl’s Travel Retail Asia Pacific General Manager Petrina Kho.
