Longevity verdict

You will have around 1,000 different species of bacteria, fungi, viruses, and mites living on your skin. Believe it or not, they are super important for the health and vitality of your skin.

These microbes are your skin microbiome

These microbes, also known as skin flora, are harmless or even beneficial. They play a vital role in your immune system and skin appearance.  These microbes have evolved over thousands of years and consist of many distinct types of colonies, depending on the location and condition of the microenvironment.

Your skin microbiome is unique to you!

Interestingly, your skin microbiome is just like a fingerprint.  It’s unique to you. Some parts are similar in everyone, but others are defined by factors that are personal to you.  It makes sense that you nurture it naturally.

Rewild your skin

It is not surprising that Esse has grown into a leading organic cosmetic brand over the past two decades.  The brand is right for our times.

Modern living is taking it out of us, and it shows in our skin. Antibiotics, disinfectants, chemical-based cosmetics and pollutants are stripping our skin of their natural microbes leading to premature aging and reduced skin health.

Esse seeks to rewild the skin by creating an environment that allows your natural microbial diversity to return. To do this, we use pre- and probiotic actives in highly advanced organic formulas specifically designed to support your skin microbiome.

Sensitive to health concerns of those who understand the damage toxins in the environment are doing to our skin. The future is more plant friendly, environmentally friendly and toxic free. The brand is carbon neutral and plastic neutral. For those looking for a skincare product that is true to nature,  kind to your skin and  highly effective, Esse ticks all the boxes.
