The science behind Activating Water Essence - and why our customers swear by it
If you’re a skin care aficionado, then a facial essence is quite possibly already part of your everyday ritual. Lightweight in texture, these toner-serum hybrids hydrate, soothe and prepare the skin for optimal absorption of your favourite products (namely, serums, moisturisers and night creams).
Our very own Activating Water Essence is one of our best sellers and has garnered a loyal following amongst our customers. A secret weapon in achieving clear, smooth skin, it is made using fourteen carefully chosen natural extracts, all of which are hand grown and harvested on the biodynamic* Jurlique farm in South Australia’s Adelaide Hills. Read on to discover the science behind this hero product.
What’s in it – and why
High-performing botanical extracts have been picked specifically for their ability to attract and hold water, leaving the complexion smoother, softer and more radiant. Free from artificial colours, fragrances, parabens and sulphates, find out a little more about four ingredients key to Jurlique Activating Water Essence…
- Marshmallow Root Extract
With its intensive hydrating, softening and rebalancing properties, Marshmallow Root extract is a star ingredient of our Activating Water Essence.
Calendula has been used around the world by many cultures since at least the 12th century. It is loved for its calming and soothing properties and is especially kind to sensitive skin.
Not only is Lavender soothing and rebalancing for dry skin, but its distinctive scent has similar effects on the mind too.
With an invigorating aroma, Rosemary extract contains powerful antioxidants which protect skin from environmental aggressors.
How to use facial essence
Our hydrating essence is suitable for all skin types and should be applied to damp skin morning and night after cleansing and toning, but before your serum and moisturiser. For best results, warm a few drops between the palms of your hands and then gently press it over your face, neck and décolletage.
