South Africa’s leading organic skincare brand - Esse Organic Skincare launches a super-premium probiotic range at the Ashley's Restaurant, Bangsar not long ago.
The launch event began with some kids performances on fighting bad bacteria with probiotics.
And we then had a live video conference with Esse Organic Skincare’s founder, Mr Trevor.
Esse Organic Skincare’s founder, Mr Trevor.
Esse Organic Skincare has produced certified organic products for the salon and spa industry for the last 10 years and the range is now exported to more than 20 countries around the world. Esse has evolved rapidly over the last few years to keep pace with scientific advances in the way that skin is understood.
The discoveries of the Human Microbiome Project have revolutionised Esse’s views on skincare. The Project found that there are 10 microbes for every human cell in the human body, and as a result we have reconceptualised the skin as an ecosystem that is at its healthiest when resident microbial populations are robust and diverse. The majority of skin disorders can now be linked to disruptions in the skin microbiome and accelerated ageing is no exception.
Esse has explored new ways to optimise the health of the skin microbiome to reduce the rate at which our skin ages. Esse uses a multi-dimensional approach to optimise the microbiome on the skin. This includes pH, preservation, essential fatty acid balance, and the use of the purest certified organic ingredients. With strong basics in place, the formulations are suitable for the true microbiome game changers: the pre and probiotics.
In the new Esse Plus line, prebiotics are used to selectively feed beneficial microbes at the expense of potentially pathogenic ones. This gives you a diverse and stable skin microbiome that results in improved barrier function and moisture retention. Live probiotics and probiotic extracts actively shape the microbial populations in and on the skin. This optimises skin health and slows the ageing process, resulting in firmer, fuller skin and a strong anti-wrinkle effect.
Exclusive to the Esse Plus line, Devil’s Claw is a desert plant that is harvested from the Kalahari in Namibia. It is one of the most potent inflammatory modulators in the plant kingdom, dramatically slowing the ageing process while protecting collagen and elastin, the building blocks for youthful skin.
They use Kigelia, or Sausage tree, extract in their current lineup, but for the Esse Plus line, they have perfected a new extraction technique for a stronger firming effect and boosted anti-ageing.
Both these plants are wild-harvested to maximise the potency of the extracts.
Esse believe that nature offers us all that we need to produce the most effective skincare products in the world.
