Aesop The Advocate Comprehensive care for hands and body

A quartet of complementary formulations aiding in daily maintenance and moisturisation, the Advocate has been composed to cleanse and revive hands and body.

It is one of five seasonal assortments that make up ‘Anatomy of Generosity’, Aesop’s 2021 collection of Gift Kits, designed to honour and encourage everyday acts of kindness. The persona of each kit has been tied to one of five registered charity groups. As a concrete gesture of support, the Aesop Foundation—the brand’s now global charitable platform—has donated AUD $100,000 to each of these organisations, regardless of sales. In turn, each kit can also serve as a token of recognition for the recipient, representing the values they embody for the giver.

The Advocate is one who puts the collective voice before their own. Seldom speaking in the first person, they amplify the plight of others and raise awareness of the underserved. Curious and attentive, they persist in careful conversation, scholarship and respect while resisting prejudice at every turn.

The partner organisation for The Advocate is US-based human rights charity Voice of Witness. This association aims to bring attention to the stories of those most impacted by social injustice—who are too often underrepresented in mainstream media. Echoing Aesop’s appreciation for the power of storytelling, Voice of Witness compiles and publishes oral accounts and educates others through an ambassador network.

The Aesop Foundation’s investment will facilitate the publication of another issue in their book series and fund a further three titles over the next two years.

Housed in a case made from 100% recycled paper pulp, The Advocate represents a conscionable gift option, whose impact reverberates beyond the first exchange. The full collection of seasonal Gift Kits is available globally from 1 November 2021 at Aesop signature stores, counters in select department stores, and online at aesop.com.
