Celebrities lend their names to skin-care products all the time -- think Vanessa Williams and Proactiv or the numerous actresses -- Andie MacDowell, Jane Fonda, Diane Keaton, etc. -- who have endorsed L’Oréal.
Artist Jeff Koons may not be a household name, but he is, for better or worse, one of the biggest celebrities in the art world. So why shouldn’t he get his own skin-care brand? The pop artist has recently lent his name to a limited edition Creme de Corps Holiday Collection, created by Kiehl’s. Each product in the series features Koons’ painting ‘Tulips’ on its label.
Kiehl’s said that all of the profits from the Koons-themed products, up to $200,000, will benefit the Koons Family Institute, an initiative of the International Centre for Missing & Exploited Children. The Koons lotions are available at Kiehl’s stores around the country and are sold in pumps, bottles and jars.
Earlier this year, Koons loaned his name to Kiehl’s limited edition Açaí Damage-Protecting Toning Mist to benefit the Rainforest Alliance.
