About Esse Organic Skincare products
Esse Organic Skincare produces cutting-edge, certified organic products for the professional skincare market. The brand is focused on efficacy. Both clients and therapists expect results. We don’t see any need to use chemicals to improve skin condition – nature offers us all the actives that we need.
Esse is driven to find ways to provide maximum benefit to the communities that source our raw materials from the African bushveld. The success of these community projects will continue to provide us with the incredible actives that make our products unique. It will also provide income to communities that desperately need it.
Esse is for people that want effective, healthy and natural products that protect their skin as much as their environment.
Our philosophy is fairly simple – we do everything that we can to get our client’s skin healthy and resistant to the aging process. We take a long-term view on skin health and don’t make sacrifices for short-term results.
We do pay attention to the impact that our business has on the world around us. We certify organic and support Fair Trade. We only use plant-based ingredients and we’re anti-cruelty activists. We’re almost carbon neutral and are involved in alternative fuel research. But we don’t see that these commitments are any restriction to producing clean, effective products. We’ve yet to see a synthetic ingredient that we think will work better than a natural one.
Esse is certified organic by Ecocert France. The key line items with the highest sales are certified and the entire range is manufactured in a certified organic facility. Esse is accredited by PhytoTrade Africa and supports the Fair Trade movement. This ensures that the raw materials that we use are sourced and purchased from local co-operatives to uplift and empower rural communities.
Esse uses wild sourced African plants that offer excellent free-radical protection. In addition the unique natural preservative system ensures the products are biodegradable and free of parabens, petrochemicals, synthetic fragrance and synthetic colourants. Our products are packaged in recycled glass.
Esse is also accredited by Beauty Without Cruelty and endorsed by the Vegan Society.
In short, Esse is an ethical brand that is focussed on the professional skincare market. Our offering is well understood by therapists as they have knowledge of basic skincare principles.
