Esse’s Nourish Moisturiser was announced the winner of the ‘Best Day Cream’ category at the Organic Beauty Awards in Sweden for presenting a moisturiser with beneficial probiotic extracts that strengthens and moisturises even sensitive skin. It was described as ‘A true moisture bomb that causes the skin to radiate well’.
Organic Beauty Awards is Sweden’s first in sustainable and ecological beauty and is run by the non-profit organization NOC(Natural Organic Cosmetics Association). This year’s competition celebrates it’s third anniversary and attracted more than 200 product entries in the 14 categories.
Dryness and sensitivity are both linked to a breakdown in the skin’s barrier function. Skin that has good barrier function will prevent moisture from leaving the skin too rapidly and will also keep toxins and opportunistic microbes out.
Low Molecular Mass Hyaluronic Acid boosts moisturisation and has an anti-ageing effect.
Prebiotics – Inulin and α-glucanoligosaccharides have been shown to improve roughness and redness and reduce irritation in sensitive skin. Prebiotics favour the growth of beneficial microbes.
Probiotics – Nourish Moisturiser uses a probiotic extract of probiotic Lactobacillus species. This extract has the ability to improve the populations of beneficial microbes on skin. The overall effect is to boost skin condition and plump the skin by improving moisturisation and T-junction activity.
