Jaqua believes in giving back to the planet: from using recyclable packaging to allowing their headquarters to be the official hub for organic farmers to deliver their organic fruits and vegetables. The vendors they choose to work with are environmentally friendly. They exercise environmentally responsible purchasing, such as using virgin paperboard (to protect “Old Growth Forests”) and utilizing earth-friendly vegetable inks, as well as recycling. And none of Jaqua’s products are tested on animals.

For this initiative, Kiehl’s partners with actor Adrian Grenier, musican Erykah badu, surfer Kelly Slater, and three design students from Parsons The New School For Design; they helped Kiehl’s to create four limited-edition labels representing their commitment to sustainability, to raise funds and awareness for Waterkeeper Alliance.
The Superbly Restorative Argan Body Lotion is one of my new favorite eco-friendly finds. My desiccated skin breathes a sigh of relief as soon as I smooth it on. It helps improve skin’s resilience and texture, enriches skin’s moisture barrier, and leaves skin soft with a healthy-looking sheen. Take a tip from me and apply it all over, post-shower/bath, when your skin is still a wee bit wet – to lock in moisture. And you’re going to flip for the sift, citrusy scent.
