Hands are stripped of good microbes constantly through regular hand washing with strong chemical washes. Many of these disinfectant hand washes are designed to kill all microbes. This cream contains prebiotics to feed beneficial microbes at the expense of pathogens. A probiotic extract is added to shift microbial populations in your favour. It is also balanced at pH 4.5 to favour the growth of synergistic species.
HOW TO USE:
Massage into hands after washing. Use as regularly as required.

Esse probiotic skin care products are high-tech organic probiotic skin care brands from South Africa. Most people associate probiotics (good microbes) with maintaining a healthy gut, but new research has shown that microbes are also essential for perfect skin. 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. Esse has used this new revelation to formulate products that maintain a balance of microbes to slow the ageing process. To do this, Esse uses prebiotics to selectively feed good microbes and they’ve used probiotic microbes in some products to deliver specific results. We have also kept our core ethics in place since the brand's inception in 2002 – we are certified organic by Ecocert in France, a carbon neutral company and accredited by the Vegan Society. It’s also cruelty-free and has strong Fair Trade credentials.
