F.A.Q.

What's an essence?

An essence is the first step in treating the skin. It specifically delivers concentrated ingredients with targeted benefits (like smoothing, hydrating, and refining) while prepping the skin for the products applied after (think serums, moisturisers, and night creams); this allows your products to work more effectively.

What is kombucha?

Kombucha is fermented black tea rich in natural acids 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 energising and detoxifying properties. When it comes to skincare, kombucha keeps skin smooth, boosts luminosity, and protects from pollution.

How is kombucha specifically protecting my skin from air pollution?

Air pollution—both indoor and outdoor—contains particle matter like heavy metals, hydrocarbons, and other contaminants that are smaller than 2.5 microns in size (PM2.5). These microscopic particles can cause oxidative stress that leads to premature fine lines, dryness, and a dull, fragile complexion. The potent kombucha ingredient protects skin from indoor and outdoor pollutants in two ways: First, it deactivates damaging pollutants to minimise interaction with the skin and prevent oxidative stress. Second, the antioxidant-rich ingredient neutralises free radicals caused by pollution and environmental aggressors.
