Microbiome skincare is a science

Your skin is an ecosystem protected by a living armour of beneficial bacteria. Esse’s organic biotechnology restores and rebalances your microbiome to keep skin healthier and younger. Creating the environment for your natural microbial diversity to return counteracts the adverse effects of our modern lifestyles and keeps skin beautifully healthy for the long term.

At the forefront

The Esse product range is scientifically formulated for all skin types – with prebiotics, probiotics and active ingredients to get your skin back to its best.

Our products remain true to our core principles: We are certified organic, vegan, cruelty free and carbon- and plastic neutral and support fair trade. Read more.

Your skin is as individual as your fingerprint. In the hands of an approved therapist, Esse treatments offer an effective and sustainable solution for your skin.
