Discover your Microbes

DISCOVER YOUR MICROBES - centre around the new findings of the importance (and our great dependance) on Microbes. Microbes are most commonly known as bacteria but in fact include any microorganism. We reveal some very interesting scientific findings. Let us know your thoughts.

Bacteria aren’t all bad, in fact you couldn’t survive without some bacteria! Good bacteria in your gut, help digest your food and fight invading microbes, good bacteria on your skin help prevent ageing and improve your skins barrier function, and science is revealing that bacteria are now contributors to maintaining mental health and a healthy weight.

Did you know that skin needs good microbes to be healthy and to slow ageing. And did you know good mircobes can only colonise when skin is not stripped by strong surfactants (foaming agents). That's why it's so important for your skincare products to have mild surfactants that don't disrupt the microbial ecosystem. Learn more at www.esse.co.za
