United Announces New Polaris and Premium Plus Amenity Kits

United Airlines introduced new premium cabin amenity kits today, replacing Cowshed skincare products with the Houston-based skincare brand Sunday Riley. The new Sunday Riley products will be available in three new amenity kits – Polaris, Premium Plus, and transcontinental – as well as in Polaris lounges and aircraft lavatories.

United will offer three new cabin-specific amenity kits featuring up to four Sunday Riley products: face cream, hand cream, lip balm, and a facial cleansing cloth.

United premium transcontinental amenity kits

United will offer a smaller amenity kit on its premium transcontinental routes from Newark (EWR) to San Francisco (SFO) and Los Angeles (LAX); and from Boston (BOS) to San Francisco (SFO). The new kit will include Sunday Riley lip balm.

Here’s what United had to say about Sunday Riley, a pioneer in Green Technology field:

Viewing skincare as an extension of self-care and overall wellness is something the brand recognizes especially when taking care of oneself on the go while traveling.

United replaces Cowshed products with Sunday Riley

When United first launched its new Polaris business class, amenity kits featured London-based Cowshed skincare products. Here’s the 2017 Polaris amenity kit:

Premium cabin lavatories and Polaris Lounges will also feature new products

Premium cabin lavatories on United’s longhaul fleet will offer Sunday Riley face mist and hand cream – again, replacing existing Cowshed products. Other products like Garment Groom spot cleaner and Murchison-Hume fabric freshener will also be available in lavatories. The new products are part of United’s push to win more premium travelers.

United Polaris lounges and other premium lounges offering shower facilities – including arrivals lounges and select United Clubs – will also feature new Sunday Riley products. United will introduce a new hand wash, shampoo, conditioner, and moisturizer by Sunday Riley.

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
