Iconic Pop Surrealist Kenny Scharf has teamed with Kiehl’s to raise 200,000 for children’s causes around the world. Having raised $600,000 through previous global holiday initiatives, Kiehl’s invited Sharf to design it’s 4th annual limited edition Creme de Corps Holiday Collection, with 100% of the proceeds to benefit over 40 children’s causes around the world. 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 settings. The collection features Sharf’s vibrant work “Globo Mundo.” Scharf describes Globo Mundo as “representing the whole world or globe; inspired by Kiehl’s, its patrons and their work in communities around the world.”
The Creme de Corps Holiday Collection with the Limited Edition Kenny Sharf designed label includes:
Creme de Corps Classic Formula, a super enriched nurturing body treatment in 8.4 oz $29.50, 16.9 oz with pump $48 and 1 liter, $75.
Creme de Corps Soy Milk and Honey Whipped Body Butter ($38). This decadent smelling, lightweight body cream looks like butta and smells like a tasty confection! I don’t notice the scent of honey so much as vanilla frosting or something you would buy at a bakery. The scent is quite strong so if you are sensitive to fragrance, this may not be right for you. As for me, I like the scent and I’m usually not a foodie scent girl, but the scent is natural not synthetic. What I really love though is the air-whipped texture–so frothy and lightweight, it doesn’t feel heavy or sticky on the body. Super hydrating, it keeps skin moisturized for hours and goes to work immediately. I like to use it after a shower and before bed to keep my skin smooth and as a relaxing treat.
Limited Edition Kenny Sharf “Squirt” Collectible ($50). Kiehl’s customers can now actually own a piece of Kenny Sharf’s work with the limited edition “Squirt” collectible. “Squirt” is an emotive character designed by Sharf and often featured in his artwork. Each “Squirt” is individually numbered (only 1,000 in the United States, 2,000 Worldwide) and includes a signed certificate of authenticity; a perfect gift for the art enthusiast!
“As a board member of RxArt, I’m thrilled that we are continuing our work together. Sharing optimism in otherwise sterile environments can really brighten a child’s day,” shares Chris Salgardo, President of Kiehl’s USA. “We believe our iconic Creme de Corps body products are the perfect palate for Kenny Sharf–this limited edition collection is an ideal gift. It’s a piece of New York City, a collectible work of art and a luxurious skin care product all in one.”
Your gift of the LE edition of Kiehl’s Creme de Corps Soy Milk and Honey Whipped Body Butter will make an indulgent treat for that special person as well as helping children’s causes throughout the US and worldwide. My you’re thoughtful!!
