Maintaining its long-standing tradition of supporting children’s causes, Kiehl’s, the venerable New York-based purveyor of fine quality skin and hair care, is pleased to announce a collaboration with one of the foremost internationally recognized contemporary artists, Jeff Koons who is using his creative genius to help children in need around the world. With the shared vision of creating safer, more sustainable environments for children, the Kiehl’s and KOONS partnership will raise awareness and funds though the sale of the Limited Edition Creme de Corps Holiday Collection, a four-product collection featuring the newest formulation, Creme de Corps Soy Milk & Honey Whipped Body Butter.
100% of Kiehl’s Worldwide Net Profits up to $200,000 will benefit The Koons Family Institute, an initiative of the International Centre for Missing & Exploited Children (ICMEC). Each product in the collection – available in Kiehl’s stores around the world this holiday season only – features the artwork of TULIPS (1995-98 Oil on Canvas) from the iconic Celebration Series on its label.
KOONS & ICMEC
Most people know Jeff for his art, but less known is that he is also the father of an abducted child, Ludwig. He has battled on two continents to get his son back. Yet despite his fame and influence, his son was not able to be returned to his custody. Jeff is a fervent advocate for protecting children and continues his work for ICMEC through this partnership and the foundation of The Koons Family Institute on International Law & Policy.
About The International Centre for Missing & Exploited Children
The International Centre for Missing & Exploited Children (ICMEC), founded in 1998 and launched by the U.S.-based National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, works to identify and coordinate a global network of organizations fighting child-sexual exploitation and abduction. The Koons Family Institute, a resource of ICMEC combats child exploitation in all its forms, including child trafficking, child pornography, and child abduction.
Through this partnership with ICMEC and Jeff Koons, the Kiehl’s donation will:
• Convince countries to join and adhere to international conventions protecting children
• Help meet ICMEC’s goal of putting in place national-level programs and operational centers for missing and exploited children, in every region of the globe
• Expand ICMEC’s work into additional countries, helping to enact powerful laws against child pornography and legislation on child pornography in dozens of countries.
