Plant-based Glycerin: A renowned skincare ingredient that works as a moisture magnet and pulls essential moisture into skin. It is highly compatible with skin and also creates a “reservoir effect”, enhancing the water-holding capacity of the skin and ultimately helping to provide skin elasticity and plumpness and facilitates epidermal barrier function. The glycerin used in this formula is plant-based and can be derived from sources including palm fruit, rapeseed and coconut. .


Panthenol is a penetrating moisturizer which absorbs into the skin and hair and is converted into Pantothenic Acid, a B complex vitamin. Assists skin care products in retaining water and also absorbs water from the air, aiding in skin and hair moisturization.

Wheat Germ Oil

Wheat Germ Oil, extracted from the germ of the wheat kernel, is an emollient with antioxidant properties due to its high, natural Vitamin E content. It also contains Lecithin and a high percentage of essential fatty acids that are vital for healthy skin. It is also used as a natural preservative.

Is this product good for combination skin?
Maeda S on Jan 26, 2015
Best Answer: It might be a little thick for oily bits. I am very dry now so I like it very much year round. When my skin was more combination, I preferred the Kiehl's Ultra Facial Moisturizer for much of the year. Back then I only used the Panthenol on extra dry spots or in the winter. I kept both on hand.

can men use this ?
A shopper on Oct 18, 2012
Best Answer: Absolutely!! I've been using this fantastic moisturizer for my dry, sensitive skin for over ten years and introduced it to my boyfriend about 6 months ago. He loves it so much that he keeps a spare on hand so that he never runs out!! It's best for a man or woman with somewhat to severe dry skin, or to be used at night as it does have a heavier consistency than most of the other face moisturizers.

Best Answer: I am 60 years old and also have dry skin. I use Kiehls protein pantheon every night after washing my face and it makes my skin very soft. I do not have many facial wrinkles yet and I attribute that to my use of Kiehls products and a good sunscreen.
