Cool Kiehl’s Fact:
When our chemists developed Kiehl’s iconic Blue Astringent Herbal Lotion in 1964, its popularity took off almost from the start. Over fifty years later, we attribute its appeal not only to its superior quality, but also its versatility. Kiehl’s male patrons tell us they use it as a post-shave treatment to soothe skin and prevent razor discomfort. Legend has it that Andy Warhol was a fan!
Active ingredients include:
-Cinnamon bark extract (considered to be of much higher quality than extract derived from leaves; contains an essential oil that is recognized for its soothing effects and is known to have antibacterial properties)
-Glycolic acid (one of the naturally occurring fruit acids derived from sugar cane; helps slough off the dry, rough uppermost layer, leaving skin looking smoother and healthier)
