While waiting to pay for my juice drink, I noticed little bottles of AESOP on the counter and on the shelves throughout. Fascinated by the packing, but more intrigued by their product development and culture after further digging. Aesop was established in 1987 in Melbourne. “Their objective has always been to formulate skin, hair and body care products of the finest quality; they investigate widely to source plant-based and laboratory-made ingredients, and use only those with a proven record of safety and efficacy.” They are headquartered in Melbourne, and have offices and stores in many parts of the world, including New York, London, Paris, Tokyo and Hong Kong and 3 stores in Los Angeles County with a 4th opening soon in November.
Their first Los Angeles signature store is located on Abbot Kinney in Venice. Customers can explore and select from Aesop’s complete range of skin, hair and body care formulations, distinguished by botanical and laboratory-generated ingredients of the highest quality. You can search their products not just based on category but on the concern of your skin, whether dry/dehydrated, oily, combination, normal, sensitive, mature and congested. Throughout their 28 years, their sincere interest in intelligent and sustainable design extends to every aspect of Aesop’s workings. Just as meticulous research is integral to the formulation of each product, their utilitarian containers are carefully considered to ensure they function with ease. They believe unequivocally that well-considered design improves our lives. Aesop has maintained a fiercely independent approach to product research and development from the outset. They source their ingredients from the most reputable suppliers across the globe, then marry cutting-edge technology with long-established scientific practices and principles to craft formulations of exceptional quality.
Luxe Tip: Aesop regularly launches new products for skin, hair and body. As they are expanding their product line, they are also expanding their distribution and you can find Aesop in Barneys Beverly Hills, Unionmade at the Grove and several Juice Served Here stores in the LA area and the OC in Newport Beach.
