ECO-CONSCIOUS RETAIL DESIGN

The newest pillar of our Future Made Better commitment is one deeply ingrained in our roots. Through our global locations and boutiques in Canada, we are committed to opting for sustainable materials and renewable energy in the store design. In light of recent developments, Kiehl's has decided to temporarily close all of its retail stores across Canada until further notice.

Long story short, we believe our patrons, communities,
and planet deserve products that are made better.
Join us in our mission to contribute to a happier, healthier world and be on
the lookout for KIEHL’S FUTURE MADE BETTER seals in-store and online.
