Connecting the mind and body to harness your inner chakras is a well established path to wellness. Aman Resorts, the chain of luxury hotels and retreats spread across 20 destinations, understands this well. And they have a new skincare line to prove it.
The skincare collection
On the brand’s 30th anniversary, the brand has introduced a collection of 30 products that have been formulated using an exotic roll-call of natural, rare and precious ingredients, many of which have been wild-harvested in various Aman destinations. Each one is enriched with the power of local goodness and it shows. The new skincare range includes hydrating face creams and serums, nourishing face masks, uplifting body oils, calming milk baths and pulse-point remedies for the weary city slicker, looking to nature to provide its warmth. The packaging and the porcelain bottles imbibe the sense of peace and design which Aman is so renowned for, and have been created by acclaimed architect Kengo Kuma.
Features and formulations
The line represents Aman’s approach to holistic wellness. The formulations are inspired by Aman destinations, from Bhutan to Morocco, Venice to India, and the connections are obvious. The precious ingredients utilised include pearls, homeopathic metals, healing tree oils, amethyst, jade, gold, frankincense and palo santo, in addition to alkalising, oxygen-rich spring water, wild-harvested Amazon butters and rainforest muds; the aromatic, calming and healing sandalwood is in all products of the collection. “The result is an entirely bespoke collection of skincare, offering tangible and long-term benefits, as well as a ritualistic moment of calm. You could say that Aman Skincare represents the spirit of Aman and is a faithful extension of our soul,” explains Vladislav Doronin, chairman and CEO of Aman.
Signature products include the Maca Cleansing Powder, Smoked Body Butter and the Desert Dew Face Mist, whose amber oil helps to relax while sandalwood has a calming effect. The Hyaluronic Face Hydrator, Active Marine Mask and the Palo Santo Salve have more purifying capabilities. The Silk Cocoon Face Cream, Golden Body Serum, Sacred Heart Balm and the Coconut Milk Bath all feature nourishing formulations. Alongside the unveiling of this collection, a new menu of spa treatments which will employ these products, has also been introduced at all the resorts.
The word Aman means ‘peace’ in Sanskrit. And this collection, with its purifying and nourishing takeaways, elevates the idea of naturally-inspired, holistic approach to well-being. Now, not only can you get inspired by the Aman spirit, but also bring the feeling home.
