Introducing… the world’s first LIVE Probiotics to boost the effects of aesthetic treatments. Pre and post-treatment trio improves the results of non-invasive skin procedures. World-leading microbiome skincare brand, Esse, announces the launch of its latest application for live probiotics. The biotech skincare brand has created products containing Lactobacillus bacteria to boost the effect of medical aesthetic treatments. Non-invasive ageing interventions like microneedling, laser resurfacing and deep peels are now widely used in medical aesthetics. These treatments are generally effective, but not entirely risk-free. Esse has drawn upon its 10 years of research in the skin microbiome to improve the overall efficacy of these treatments by reducing inflammation, speeding recovery, and reducing adverse outcomes. These ground-breaking formulations were developed by Esse founder, Trevor Steyn, and his experienced research team.

Over the years Esse has honed its delivery of probiotic bacteria. This new offering is the pinnacleof its microbial encapsulation technology, in which live bacteria are kept dormant in soluble capsules until application. Click HERE to read more about these products.

Own Lable Skincare

With its unwavering commitment to excellence, quality, and innovation, Buddha Beauty has taken another significant step towards the future of skincare. The company has recently launched a dedicated website, aiming to provide a distinct platform for salon, spa, and clinic owners. This unique initiative is designed to offer businesses their own branded range of skincare products, without any minimum order quantity (MOQ) or start-up costs.

In today’s ever-evolving beauty market, brand individuality and a unique selling proposition are vital for standing out from the competition. Understanding this, Buddha Beauty has built the Own Label Skincare platform. It empowers businesses to develop their own skincare line under their branding, whilst ensuring the product’s quality is in line with Buddha Beauty’s respected standards.

The beauty of this platform is its flexibility. It completely eradicates the barriers of MOQs and hefty start-up costs often associated with launching a private skincare line. This, in turn, provides a fantastic opportunity for smaller salons, spas, and clinics to amplify their brand identity and customer loyalty through their unique skincare line.

Moreover, to uphold the values of conscious beauty, all products offered on the platform are vegan-friendly and cruelty-free. Buddha Beauty’s dedication to ethical beauty practices is woven into the fabric of Own Label Skincare. This empowers businesses to not only offer superior skincare products to their customers but also contribute positively to a sustainable, ethical beauty industry.
