Japanese beauty, or J Beauty, is steeped in history and tradition and is often inextricably tied to water. This connection traces back to the Heian period of 794-1185 where people would gather dew to use as a softening lotion or essence. Using silky textures, green ingredients and delicate applications, J Beauty is all about the senses and the experience of caring for the skin. We’re excited to bring you four new product inspirations based on this timeless approach to beauty.
