States of Matter
Every product that Aesop offers has benefited from the discoveries of agronomists, botanists, chemical scientists and biophysicists. Each of the 2011-2012 science-themed kits is dedicated to a particular theory that captivates Aesop's imagination and has laid the foundations for countless achievements that have followed. Aesop pays homage to the men and many unacknowledged women who have applied themselves to disciplined inquiry.
States of Matter contains fine formulations for hand and body plus our portable facial hydrosol. In the fields of chemistry and physics, the expression States of Matter refers to the description of the physical form different phases of matter adopt. Solid, liquid, and gas are the most common states of matter on earth. Plasma, a highly ionised gas occurring at high temperatures, is widely cited as the fourth state of matter.
The image shown on this kit is a detail from Opera Philosophica, Rene Descartes, published by Daniel Elsevier, Amsterdam, 1677.
Started in Melbourne in 1987 with the simple goal of developing the highest quality products using the best botanical-based, scientifically-developed ingredients, Aesop has become one of Australia’s biggest beauty exports since the legendary Helena Rubinstein. The brand’s nourishing collections for skin, hair and body are rich in protective antioxidants to assist in repairing and protecting surface cells otherwise at risk due to internal and environmental stressors.
