In praise of imperfections
Wabi sabi is appreciating simplicity and seeing beauty in imperfections. The patina of time makes people and things more beautiful. We must therefore take great care of them.
In line with this philosophy, preventing rather than repairing is the primary objective of skincare in Japan. Maintaining, nourishing and protecting are thus at the heart of the simple and delicate Japanese beauty ritual, which begins with a good, gentle cleansing.
