Dear Kiehl’s family,
Since 1851, our community has been at the heart of everything we do at Kiehl’s. We hope you’re safe, healthy and protected while practicing social distancing, no matter where you’re living in Australia.
At Kiehl’s and in all of our stores around the world, the health and safety of our customers, employees, and communities is our top priority.
We value your continued interest in our products and services and commit to keeping you informed on the implications of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) on our ability to serve. Please be assured we are monitoring the outbreak closely and are taking ongoing actions to keep everyone safe.
While we have needed to put different working measures in place for our employees at this time, we are still working diligently to ensure we can continue to make online shopping easy and safe for you.
We are committed to serving you 24/7 online and all orders are shipping on time and as normal. To make things easy and as stress-free as possible, we are also offering free shipping on all online orders.
Warehousing & Packaging:
We are taking enhanced precautions across our supply chain. This includes sanitation and increased workplace cleansing at our distribution facilities, actively encouraging sick employees to stay home, and enforcing healthy hygiene habits in the workplace.
The Australian Government has advised that the risk of coronavirus infection from handling goods is considered extremely low. On most dry surfaces, coronaviruses die within a few hours as secretions dry out. In addition, the World Health Organisation has also advised it is safe to receive packages as, from previous analysis, coronaviruses do not survive long on objects, such as mailed items.
Globally to date, there has been no recorded case that someone has contracted coronavirus from handling mail or parcels. Within our Distribution Centre which is based in outer Melbourne, we are maintaining the highest hygiene protocols. All employees have their temperature checked prior to beginning their shift, face masks are mandatory hands are sanitised frequently and cleaning of all surfaces is completed three times a day.

We are working closely with our shipping partners who are following guidance from the World Health Organization. Find further detail around additional measures our delivery partners like Australia Post have in place here.
All Kiehl’s Australia products sold follow strict quality control measures to ensure consumer safety. This includes packaging that seals and protects the product from external contamination.
