Aesop. Our Favourite Australian Collection.
The feeling is of being at home. But better.
"When concepting the Dwell Store edit prior to opening, partnering with Aesop was an integral part of our aspirations. Our space was designed specifically to showcase the collection that we had enjoyed, admired and esteemed for such a long time."
Aesop was established in 1987 with the objective of formulating skin, hair and body care products of the finest quality.
Since Aesop’s inception, they have maintained a fiercely independent approach to product research and development. The team of skilled chemical scientists works out of it's Australian Head Office in a utilitarian, custom-built laboratory – conceptualising product ideas, researching blends, and creating prototypes.
"The brand investigates widely to source plant-based and laboratory-made ingredients, and uses only those with a proven record of safety and efficacy. Sourcing ingredients from the most reputable suppliers across the globe, they marry contemporary technology with long-established scientific practices."
Each formulation helps to address common afflictions associated with the cooler season, including dryness, congestion, dehydration, and associated sensitivities.
With the coming of our [ w-18. ] cooler months, Aesop is a certain solution.
“Our belief is that skin care should be considered, and alternated with the changing of seasons,” said Dr Kate Forbes, Aesop General Manager, Products and Research & Development. “We must be mindful of the shifting needs of the skin, especially after the high heat of summer, and the winter environments we endure, whether that be extreme cold outdoors or artificial heat indoors.”

A 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, the utilitarian Aesop containers are created with utmost care to ensure they function with ease and are pleasing to our eyes.
While paying heed to the aesthetics of it's packaging, Aesop’s priority has always been the quality of what is inside our containers; the vessels are functional, minimal and humble. Aesop uses recyclable glass and cardboard as much as possible, providing it does not compromise the stability or integrity of their products.
Something that we love about the Aesop collection is the expanding experience.
