Superbly Restorative Argan Dry Oil
This liquid body moisturizer contains some excellent ingredients to help dry to very dry skin look and feel better. Unfortunately, it also contains several fragrant plant oils; they may please your nose, but they can irritate your skin, and that doesn’t help your skin in any way, shape, or form.
Our multi-purpose restorative dry oil for the face, body and hair utilizes Moroccan Argan Oil and naturally-derived emollients, enriched with antioxidants and essential fatty acids. This formulation helps to smooth skin and hair while providing a healthy looking radiant sheen. Applied to skin, our instantly absorbed dry oil leaves a silky feel and helps improve its appearance and texture. Used on hair, this uniquely versatile formula helps to smooth split ends and helps restore the appearance of damaged hair.
Kiehls has been around for quite some time, with its origins in a New York City-based pharmacy established in 1851. The brand is perhaps best known for its apothecary-style packaging and its best-selling (and celebrity favorite) Lip Balm #1.
Though the brand claims its products are made with the finest naturally-derived ingredients, most of its formulations include synthetically-produced ingredients as well. Like most skincare companies the line contains both good and not-so-great offerings; Kiehls main misstep is that many of its products contain fragrance ingredients that could irritate skin, particularly sensitive skin.
Note: Kiehl's is categorized as a brand that tests on animals because its products are sold in China. Although Kiehl's does not conduct animal testing for its products sold elsewhere, the Chinese government requires imported cosmetics be tested on animals, so foreign companies retailing there must comply. This requirement is why some brands state that they dont test on animals unless required by law. Animal rights organizations consider cosmetic companies retailed in China to be brands that test on animals, and so does the Beautypedia Research Team.
