Embrace the imperfection!

Kintsugi is a traditional Japanese mending method for ceramic. A compound of gold, consisting of urushi (Japanese lacquer) and gold powder, emphasizes the flaw and makes the object even more valuable than before. The concept of simplicity and defectiveness is called wabi-sabi.

We clean our skin with soap, take care of it and carry it around with ourselves for a lifetime. Purity doesn’t mean perfection. Beautiful and clean skin with all its flaws. Incorporate the concept of wabi-sabi into your life.
