I would like to recognize Kiehl’s and M*A*C for their contribution to AIDS research today, on World AIDS Day.
KIEHL’S LIMITED EDITION HAND CARE FOR A CURE
In proud support of World AIDS Day, Kiehl’s is launching a Limited Edition Hand Care for a Cure today with 100% of the net profits to benefit amfAR. With new packaging for a limited release of their signature Ultimate Strength Hand Salve, it features a unique design of the symbolic red ribbon – worn internationally to increase public awareness of AIDS. Created out of red hand prints, this visual displays the many hands that AIDS has affected, as well as the many hands working together to find a cure. This heavy-duty moisture treatment is a thick, rich formula offering all-day care and protection to hands. Featuring a blend of select ingredients that allows skin draw and absorb water from the air, this hand salve forms a protective barrier against moisture loss.
Limited Edition Hand Care for a Cure Suggested Retail Price: 2.5 fl. oz / $12.50, available on http://www.kiehls.com
