Kiehl products to retail at Dubai Duty Free Store

Published 24 November 2010

Dubai Duty Free has become the first airport store in the Middle East to stock Kiehl’s range of skincare and beauty products.

To officially welcome the Kiehl's brand, a special launch ceremony was held at Dubai Duty Free today (Thursday, 25th March) and was attended by the retail operation's senior management and staff headed by Deputy Managing Director, George Horan and senior officials from Kiehl's who had flown in for the event, including Philippe Goldman, Division Manager, Lancome and Kiehl's, Nicolas Pic, Travel Retail Manager, Kiehl's (Europe, Middle East and Africa) and Tanguy Le Baud, Area Manager for Lancome and Kiehl's. Speaking at the ceremony, Mr. George Horan, Deputy Managing Director of Dubai Duty Free said, "As a retailer we are constantly looking at ways that differentiate Dubai Duty Free and to offer our customers exclusive brands and opportunities. Being the first duty free operation in the region to feature the Kiehl's brand is an important step in that process and we welcome this new addition to the category." Kiehl's was first founded as an old-world apothecary in New York City in 1851 and is famous for its unique formulations made of high concentrations of the finest natural ingredients. The brand is equally renowned for its philanthropic support of worthy causes and to mark today's launch, Kiehl's representative, Mr. Goldman pledged Dhs100,000 ($27,000), to the Dubai Duty Free Foundation. On making the announcement, Mr. Goldman said, "We are delighted to see the success of Kiehl's at Dubai Duty Free and believe that this is the start of a long term partnership with the operation which is recognized as a global brand. In the spirit of dedicated service to the surrounding community, Kiehl's will make a donation of Dhs100,000 to the Dubai Duty Free Foundation. Kiehl's contributes to various non-profit charitable organizations and is particularly sensitive to Dubai Duty Free supporting charities relating to women and children in need."
