What is an essence and why do I need it?
An essence is the first step in prepping to treat skin. It deeply penetrates into the skin surface while specifically delivering concentrated ingredients with targeted benefits (like smoothing, hydrating, and refining). This skincare prep step boosts the efficacy of the products applied after (think serums, moisturizers, and night creams).
What is kombucha?
Kombucha is fermented black tea rich in antioxidants and vitamins that has been around since ancient times. Historically it has been known throughout Asia and Russia as an “immortal elixir” beverage for its energizing and detoxifying properties. Our kombucha is double fermented to produce small antioxidant molecules for easy penetration and powerful protection from external stressors for smooth, luminous skin.
Why does my skin need help protecting and visibly repairing itself?
Our skin has the natural ability to protect and visibly repair itself from the effects of environmental stressors. When skin is exposed to these stressors, it creates ROS (Reactive Oxygen Species), which causes skin to look dull with uneven texture. Powered by kombucha and an advanced metabiotic, our new Kombucha Essence formula is scientifically proven to help improve skin’s natural defense system by decreasing the number of free radicals by +20%* and deliver +32% more antioxidant power**. Protecting and visibly repairing skin from the effects caused by environmental stressors is the key to smooth, luminous skin (aka helps skin return to the look of its pre-exposed state). *instrumental test, 30 subjects **instrumental test, 20 subjects
