Intensity Serum is Esse’s answer to quick wrinkle reduction using a natural plant active which relaxes subcutaneous muscle in a similar way to Botox.
- The effect lasts for 24 hours, but there is a cumulative effect so if used regularly, the appearance of lines and wrinkles over the long term will improve.
- Independent testing has proven that this product reduces wrinkle depth by 17% in 28 days, with positive results being shown in 100% of test subjects.
- Mafane Extract (Acmella Oleracea) – this extract has a powerful myo-relaxing effect – it relaxes muscle so that wrinkles soften over 1 to 2 hours. Over time, with continuous use, wrinkle depth decreases and there is a smoothing effect on the skin.
- Prebiotics – Inulin and Alpha-Glucan Oligosaccharides are food for beneficial microbes.
- Probiotics – BIOME+ LEVEL 2 + 3. This serum uses a Lactobacillus species but the cells have been deliberately broken and then the mixture is filtered. This extract still can shift the types of microbial populations on the skin as it has an anti-microbial effect on opportunistic microbes. It also contains probiotic cells that are still whole and able to dock into the binding sites on keratinocytes, but the cells are no longer alive. The metabolites in the fermentation “broth” are also included. The key effect is to stimulate the colonisation of favourable bacteria species.
- Devil’s Claw Extract – we have brought this new ingredient to skincare because we have found exceptional results in the protection of elastin and collagen.
- Kigelia Extract – our targeted extract of Kigelia yields a strong firming effect on the skin. Results are seen after two weeks of continuous use.
- Low Molecular Mass Hyaluronic Acid – the Hyaluronic Acid levels in this product are exceptionally high – at the highest safe limit. Maximum hydrating and anti-wrinkle effect can be expected from Hyaluronic Acid in this product.
Apply a small amount to the face, neck and décolleté in the morning before moisturising.
