Water is the driving force behind all life. Every day, we drink water and use it to wash ourselves--but we might just be taking it for granted. Actually, we should be honouring water as our largest source of energy, purity and clarity.
Honouring water, the essence of life
The Ritual of Banyu is based on Banyu Pinaruh, a cleansing ceremony performed on the Indonesian island of Bali. It is a ritual that refreshes body and soul while cleansing and purifying them. During Banyu Pinaruh, locals and tourists alike flock to the Balinese beaches during sunrise to bathe. By engaging in this yearly ritual, people honour the powers of water. They wash themselves in the ocean, a river or a lake, symbolically washing away their sins in order to start again with a clean slate. We actually do the same: every time we take a shower or a bath, we wash away the spiritual and physical dust of everyday life.
Purifying, refreshing and detoxifying
With The Ritual of Banyu, we want to inspire you to be mindful of these moments and make them more meaningful. The new limited edition collection is composed of ingredients like giant kelp and Bali sea salt. Giant kelp is packed with antioxidants and vitamins and has a softening and hydrating effect on the skin. Bali sea salt, very rich in minerals and nutrients, has a threefold effect on skin. It exfoliates the skin while repairing it and detoxifying it, all at the same time. Alongside this, sea salt has enormous purifying power and wards off negative energy.
