Company Details

Company Type Large Company (more than 300 employees)

Company Description



We offer skin, hair and body care formulations created with meticulous attention to detail, and with efficacy and sensory pleasure in mind.

Aesop was established in 1987.

In 2003, in an underground nook in the Melbourne bayside suburb of St Kilda, we hosted our first in-store customers. The space – once a narrow ramp descending into an underground carpark – set the benchmark for future architectural ambitions. In seeking new locations, our first consideration is always to work with what is already in place; we tread lightly with respect for the past, present and future.

Our objective has always been to formulate skin, hair and body care products of the finest quality; we investigate widely to source plant-based and laboratory-made ingredients, and use only those with a proven record of safety and efficacy. In each of our unique stores, informed consultants are pleased to introduce the Aesop range and to guide your selections.

We are headquartered in Melbourne, and have offices and stores in many parts of the world.
