In China, India and Nepal, the air brims with a sense of tradition, of antiquity. On the faces of women and men there is calm, serenity, a peaceful, unstudied and unconventional form of ancient beauty that is profoundly human. May we call this ‘grace’? From these places I got the idea of a cosmetic and lifestyle line thanks to which taking care of yourself is not only a daily gesture of care, but a more complex practice of enrichment towards one’s being as a whole. On my mind was the sincere, human beauty I saw in Kathmandu. And this is where the magic of Spikenard Root Extract – a most precious ointment, the sacred oil of the Kings – comes in.
