ESSE ORGANIC SKINCARE
Esse is passionate about skin science.
We take a broad, holistic approach in our quest to defy ageing. By closely examining
every aspect of skin health and the external factors affecting it, we can carefully select ingredients to extract synergies that reduce the impact of time.
THE SKIN MICROBIOME & PROBIOTICS
Most people associate probiotics (good microbes) with maintaining a healthy gut, but new research is revealing that synergistic microbes are also fundamentally linked to skin health. The Human Microbiome Project has discovered that optimal skin health is dependent on the presence of trillions of microbes living on, and in, your skin.
We have invested considerable research to ensure that our products maintain a balance of microbes to slow the ageing process. We aim to create an environment on the skin that favours the growth of beneficial microbes so that they can out-compete pro-ageing species. To do this, we use prebiotics to selectively feed good microbes and have included probiotic microbes in some products to deliver specific results.
Your skin is a complex ecosystem. You need your microbes – so don’t try to kill them with anti-microbials unless absolutely necessary. You will disrupt your skin’s sensitive ecosystem and open the door to harmful pathogens.
