I have to admit my skin care routine has been a little erratic for some time now simply because, with my change to using animal friendly options, I’ve enjoyed the opportunity to sample what’s out there!
During the last 18 months I’ve creamed and lathered, patted and gently scrubbed with a variety of luscious, eco-friendly brands. It has been an adventure especially experimenting with some South African choices.
Now at last I’ve found ‘the one’!
Esse Organic Skincare (pronounced “S”) has a full skin care range readily available through salons and stores nationwide, and internationally. I was introduced first to their moisturiser, and then treated myself to a full Esse facial. I was hooked. Intrigued to find out more, I contacted their head office.
As of this week I’ve readily agreed to be a part of a year-long collaboration as an Esse brand ambassador.
Although this partnership does offer me a small compensation, in the form of product, for acknowledgments of their brand, I’m only too happy to show my support as Esse had become my first choice when it comes to my own skin care.
Using Esse products really does bring the fond South African term, ‘Local is Lekker ‘ to its rightful meaning. They’re tapping into Africa’s abundant biodiversity of plants to bring the benefits of these African extracts to your skin. Check out this quick video
Rest easy though, because taking from our local natural resources is done responsibly by being an accredited partner of PhytoTrade Africa. For you and I this means that by Esse buying PhytoTrade Africa’s ingredients, our skincare choice support women to send their kids to school, visit the clinic, invest in local credit schemes or even build a house. That’s so lekker!
So I’m ready to settle down into this win-win relationship with like-minded innovators whose products underline a vision for a beautiful sustainable life for all species.
Now that’s where ethics run far beyond skin-deep. Kudos to Esse!
I especially look forward to your feedback and involvement along the way!
