Esse Skincare

Probiotic Serum

Good bacteria in a bottle that supports a healthy microbiome, meaning your skin can achieve its best skin health and combat potential challenges whether environmental or irritation.
What does it do?

Balancing any bacterial imbalance or damage, the millions of magical microbials get to work with your skin’s own natural microorganisms to heal and protect, turning problem skin into smooth perfection.

Why do i need it?

Because a healthy microbiome optimises your cellular function protecting it from infection, pollutants, and pathogens which are real factors when it comes to accelerated ageing, acne, and eczema.

what’s the secret?

This is the world’s first probiotic serum which means it is alive and ready to work. Whilst most people are focusing on the bacteria in their body, Esse are looking at what’s going on outside on your skin, creating a product that actively gets to work.
As soon as a drop of serum hits your skin, 1 billion live probiotics per millilitre get activated by the moisture on your skin.
These bacteria encourage the production of hyaluronic acid as well as producing it themselves so expect plumper, more hydrated skin with continued use. They also produce lactic acid to create an environment that limits the growth of pathogens so they can’t cause any trouble.
They then work together to create the ideal microbiome (basically a balanced collection of microorganisms, bacteria in your skin) and create a moisture-laden barrier that means slower ageing, restoration, and smoother skin.

how to use it

Let be the solo artist I long to be. Pop a little drop onto the skin in the morning and evening before you moisturise, but if you really want to watch me shine apply at night without any other products. Use me every day for 2 weeks as an intensive treatment before slowing down use to 2-3 nights for maintenance. Sensitive and Ageing skin: Massage a small drop into the skin (take your time) morning and evening before you apply your moisturiser. Oily/Congested skin: use with Esse Toner morning and evening before applying and skip the moisturiser. Dry/damaged or acne-scarred skin: Go it alone, apply the serum on its own in the evening and let it get to work. Be mindful of what you’re layering on top and keep it light. These microbes are sensitive souls so try not to layer too many active products on top as you run the risk of making it ineffectual before it’s had the chance to shine.
