Why Essence Is The Ultimate Multitasker
Often referred to as “miracle” water, the nutrient-packed, aqueous formula of Active Treatment Essence is a powerful hydrator to be sure. But what you may not know is its multifaceted ingredients take the place of a counter-full of skincare treatments, seven in all. Discover all your complexion receives from this one truly stupendous step.
Our commitment to sustainable skincare provides a blueprint for beauty that cares for each other and Mother Earth. Core to that ethos is our fewer philosophy, a belief that if one product delivers a myriad of benefits, fewer products are needed, fewer are produced and less natural resources are utilized. There is no better manifestation of this mission than our Active Treatment Essence, a multi-beneficial hydrator that overdelivers in every way.
Fueled By The Power of Plants
Using 13 of the world’s most nutrient-rich, whole botanicals, our one-of-a-kind Phyto Radiance Infusion is a three-week long process that allows us to slowly extract the full spectrum of nutrition from these incredible plants, which include superfoods like moringa, acerola, astragalus, and ancient healers like nettle, helichrysum and marshmallow. All of this powerful nourishment is infused into Essence’s aqueous base. The infusion is elevated even further by adding a fermented component, our two-week
, to amplify the nutritional impact. And because our bodies are over 65% water, the aqueous formula of an essence is uniquely able to absorb deep within the skin, delivering nutrients many layers beneath the surface.
One Bottle, So Many Benefits
With a multitude of nourishing and renewing ingredients and a formulation that ramps up their performance, Active Treatment Essence is imbued with the benefits of a slew of skincare essentials from gentle exfoliators to collagen-supporting vitamin C and much more.
1. HERO HYDRATOR
Hydration is separate but equal when it comes to a healthy complexion. Micro and mini hyaluronic, aloe vera, coconut water, apple pectin and lactic acid work together to create multi-level hydration that lasts, resulting in skin that is more supple and resilient.
2. BRIGHTENING SERUM
Pigmentation and dullness is no match for the ingredients including helichrysum helichrysum, marshmallow, acerola, niacinamide and dandelion in Essence. Combined with plant stem cells, they work to even skin tone, imparting a fresher, brighter appearance.
3. VITAMIN C SERUM
Active Treatment Essence is unique for its high-antioxidant count vitamin C. Found in kakadu plums and acerola (with one of the highest percentages of the vitamin found anywhere), these natural wonders are known for their brightening and collagen supporting abilities.
4. PHYTO FERMENTTM
A 14-day proprietary process facilitates nutrition absorption through enzymes for more resilient and healthy skin.
Regularly removing layers of built-up dead skin cells doesn’t just do away with surface dullness, it is a key driver of cellular regeneration. Gentle plant acids and fruit enzymes found in pineapple slough off dead skin without irritating sensitive types.
Microalgae and nettle help clarify pores and renew skin while a healthy dose of antioxidants, including beta glucan and a full-suite of B vitamins benefit the skin barrier, the complexion’s first line of defense against environmental aggressors.
7. MOISTURE PREP
Along with the immediate hydrating benefits, the 20+ superfoods in Essence function help to amplify the efficacy of subsequent products. When the skin is well hydrated, the actives found in all your skincare can more easily flow between the layers of the skin.
