Founded in 1851, the Kiehl’s New York Pharmacy has been dedicated to serving efficacious formulations for skin and hair made with a unique blend of cosmetic, pharmaceutical, herbal and medicinal knowledge. Kiehl’s will make its debut in India in September 2010, with a flagship store at the newly opened Ambience Mall, Vasant Kunj, New Delhi. India will become the 37th country in the Kiehl’s family!
The original Kiehl’s Pharmacy is a historical, family founded store located at New York City’s East Village on Pear Tree Corner at 109 Third Avenue. This long standing New York Institution began by supplying pharmaceutical tonics and medicinal salves culled from natural ingredients. Since the last 160 years Kiehl’s has generated fiercely loyal customers by developing unique and efficacious formulations and by providing outstanding service to the community.
PRODUCT FORMULATION PHILOSOPHY
Kiehl’s uses only select, natural ingredients of the finest quality so as to ensure the high caliber of skin and hair care that customers deserve. All products are formulated with sensitive skin in mind and minimal preservatives are used. Kiehl’s does not ever test products on animals. Lastly, Kiehl’s uses only simple, efficient, recyclable packaging so that it may concentrate all efforts and costs on what is truly important: the substance and quality of the products.
BRINGING THE KIEHL’S SPIRIT TO INDIA!
“India will simply love Kiehl’s!” says Dinesh Dayal, Director of Kiehl’s in India. “We are excited to bring in the warmth and quirkiness of New York’s East Village through the boutique’s design and our spirit of active generosity. Our products, textures and results will be explained through a thorough consultation and each customer will be given generous samples depending on his/her skin needs.
For decades, we have supported initiatives globally with an impassioned commitment to the environment and child welfare. We are constantly striving to further our efficiencies – in our products, in our packaging, in our stores, and in the service we provide to Kiehl’s patrons around the world. As we infuse the Kiehl’s ethos in India, we look forward to Indian customers becoming a part of the global Kiehl’s community!”
