Optimal skin condition depends on the probiotic microbes living on and in it. Without microbes, your skin can’t perform its basic functions and the rate of skin ageing increases sharply.

Esse creates an environment on the skin that favours the growth of beneficial microbes. It uses prebiotics to selectively feed good microbes and includes LIVE probiotic microbes in two of the serums to make functional changes to the skin’s microbiome.

Esse does not believe in damaging skin in pursuit of short-term results, it optimises skin health to slow ageing in the long-term. As the Esse Probiotic Serum touches your face, 50 million live probiotics per drop are activated by the moisture on your skin, complementing your natural microbial diversity and helping to create the ideal micro biome to slow the ageing process.

Since their inception, they have remained true to their core principles: Esse is certified organic, vegan and cruelty free. They support fair trade and are a carbon neutral company.
