The Esse Hydro Moisturiser has been formulated to settle sensitive skin by optimising the health of your skin’s microbiome. Your skin’s immune system is modulated by the microbes that live in and on your skin. This Hydro Moisturiser uses prebiotics and probiotic extracts in an ultra-mild formulation to favour beneficial microbes. A balanced skin microbiome will result in improved moisture retention and a fuller, healthier skin. This addition of Hyaluronic Acid boosts moisturisation.
Prebiotics – Inulin andα-glucan- oligosaccharides improve roughness and redness and reduce irritation in sensitive skin. Prebiotics favour the growth of beneficial microbes.
Probiotics – The Hydro Moisturiser uses an extract of probiotic Lactobacillus species. The extract improves beneficial microbial populations on skin. The overall effect is to boost skin condition and plump the skin by improving moisturisation and T-junction activity.

Gently press onto the face, neck and décolleté morning and evening after cleansing and toning.

At the #AntiNastiesClub, we stay away from preservatives like parabens and phthalates that give conventional beauty products prolonged shelf life. As healthier preservatives are used to enhance the performance of the products without harming the skin, it is important to note that our products have a much shorter shelf life.
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.
