This moisturizer has been formulated to fix sensitive skin by optimizing the health of skin microbes.
We are surrounded by millions of invisible friends…. the microbiome. In perfect conditions, they form a healthy, vibrant and diverse ecosystem that protects us from invading pathogens and helps us detoxify the skin. Like any ecosystem, pollution can cause major changes that weaken the system. This product is designed to restore the skin’s ecosystem.
The population of skin microbes are made up of a Lactobacillus probiotic extract and two key prebiotics (inulin and alpha-glucan oligosaccharides). This will result in increased moisture retention and plumping of the skin.
Nourish Moisturizer is designed to boost barrier function on dry and sensitive skin.
Dryness and sensitivity come together to break down the barrier function. A skin that has a good barrier function will prevent hydration from leaving the skin too quickly and will be well hydrated from within. A function of the strong barrier, it will also keep out toxins and opportunistic microbes, preventing an immune response from the skin that can result in redness and discomfort, as well as rapid aging.
Low molecular weight Hyaluronic Acid boosts hydration and interrupts the citrine cascade that fuels inflammation. The approach (as with all products in the Sensitive line) is to minimize the possibility of allergic reactions. This product is 100% natural and the total fragrance level is below 0.03% and consists of only two components. The preservation system is exceptionally gentle and the number of ingredients in the formula has been kept to a minimum.
The formula is roughly the same as Esse Ultra Moisturizer in terms of hydration.
This is an intensive hydration formula that is suitable for repair and restoration at night or for use twice a day on dry skin.
50ml / 1.7 fl oz glass container
Prebiotics: Insulin and glucan-oligosaccharides have been included to change the microbial population to reduce inflammation and boost barrier function.
Probiotics: Nourish Moisturizer uses Lactobacillus probiotic but the cells have been broken and the mixture has been filtered. This “extract” has the ability to increase the population of beneficial microbes on the skin as it has an anti-microbial effect against opportunistic microbes. The overall effect is to boost the condition of the skin and plump it up by increasing hydration and T-junction activity.
Low Molecular Weight Hyaluronic Acid: HA levels in this moisturizer are high to disrupt the cytokine cascade that fuels inflammation.

HOW TO USE
The Esse Sensitive line is formulated to solve sensitive skin. The goal is to catch a client (over two months) who goes from having sensitive skin to skin that is no longer reactive. This customer should then start using the normal Esse line.
It is imperative that this line is not used with the mixture of other products from other brands. This would compromise the healing process.
This product has been formulated to use twice a day on dry or sensitive skin.
