Kiehl’s Tests the Legendary Ultra Facial Cream at the North Pole,
Staking its Claim as the Ultimate 24-hour Hydrator
Most skincare products claiming 24-hour hydration are never exposed to real environmental elements to prove their all-day endurance. Kiehl’s chemists are known industry-wide to “go the extra mile” by torture-testing their highly effective formulas in some of the most remote places on earth. To ensure it hydrates even the most parched skin, Kiehl’s has sent its legendary Ultra Facial Cream to the uncharted peaks of Greenland, 282 feet below sea level in Death Valley, 13,000 vertical feet to The Mount Whitney Portal – and this year, across the frozen sea ice of the North Pole.
To test the performance of its iconic Ultra Facial Cream, Kiehl’s partnered with adventure explorer and polar guide Doug Stoup, on his recent expedition to the North Pole in the Arctic Ocean. Amid waters that are almost permanently covered with constantly shifting sea ice, The North Pole has some of the harshest conditions in the world with temperatures reaching as low as -43 degrees C (-45 degrees F). “I use Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream on my polar expeditions, as it really prevents my skin from drying and chapping. This product really works and I depend on it to provide 24 hours of continuous hydration” shares Doug Stoup, polar expedition expert.
