Clear Skin at 30,000 Feet? New UAL Kits Will Help

Sunday Riley products designed with altitude and hydration in mind debut this month in United's amenity kits

United Airlines customers now have an opportunity to experience Sunday Riley products made exclusively for the global traveler with the upcoming roll-out of new amenity kits featuring what is frequently described as a cult beauty brand. This new collection will begin its roll-out later this month onboard flights and in United Polaris lounges and United Club locations with shower facilities.

Using employee and customer research, United selected award-winning Sunday Riley as its new skincare partner based on the brand being a pioneer in green technology and high-performance skincare, with a philosophy that skincare is a vital extension of self-care and overall wellness for today’s global traveler. Combined with United’s Polaris business class experience, this partnership provides customers with the amenities needed to feel refreshed while traveling.

“Sunday Rikey and the product team really took the time to understand how travel and the aircraft environment affects our customers and formulated an in-flight remedy that complements their journey with United from beginning to end. By elevating the skincare products offered on our planes and in our lounges, we can continue to lift the experience customers have when traveling with United,” said United’s Vice President of Marketing Mark Krolick.

United will offer three cabin-specific amenity kits featuring Sunday Riley products:

• United Polaris business class: Amenity kit will feature four Sunday Riley products: a lip balm with pomegranate seed oil and shea butter to boost hydration; a face cream with a blend of botanicals to hydrate and soothe skin in-flight; hand cream containing a nourishing blend of shea butter, cocoa butter and rose hip seed oil; and a facial cleansing cloth containing peppermint extract to balance oil and invigorate skin.

United Premium Plus: Amenity kit will include the lip balm and hand cream.

United premium transcontinental: Amenity kit will include the lip balm.

Premium cabin lavatories on dozens of aircraft in United’s fleet will also offer a face mist and hand cream formulated by Sunday Riley, as well as other new products, like the Garment Groom 2-1 spot cleaner and fabric freshener created by Murchison-Hume.
