It's all in the details
Essence may seem like a small addition to your skincare routine, but we promise, you will notice the difference. If you're yet to see the wow effect on your skin, fasten your seat belt because it's coming! Essence will boost the effect of your serums, moisturizers and other products so that you finally see the whole gang work.

Pre- and postbiotics
Our faces all have both good and bad microorganisms. When they’re not in balance, our skin can get irritated, impure and dull. The prebiotics in the Essence are the nutritious food for the good microorganisms, helping them live their best lives, and fight the bad ones, to bring back balance to your skin. The postbiotics are literally the dead good bacteria that help to protect and restore the skin tone.

What do we want? More hydration! When do we want it? Now!
Essence is a true skin perfector that ensures deep hydration and helps your skin to better absorb all the moisture from all other skincare products you put on next. Thanks to that, those first fine lines and wrinkles will have a hard time coming up.

Forms magnificent duos with other Comme Deux products
Thanks to its boosting effect, the Essence magnifies the results you'd see from Powernap, Discoskin or Serumboosters, making them even better performers. 

Inulin is extracted from the chicory root. This humectant prebiotic has serious skin-conditioning properties that help keep the skin hydrated, soft and smooth.

Alpha-glucan oligosaccharide
It’s not just a word no one can say, but a complex of extracts from sugar beets, wheat and malt. A powerful prebiotic that’s known to support and protect the skin's microorganisms from the stressors in life that can lead to itchy skin, redness, irritations and impurities.

Lactobacillus ferment lysate
An innovative active ingredient gotten from the fermentation of probiotic bacteria. It’s literally a dead bacterium, which may sound gross, but it does a great job by restoring, protecting, soothing and moisturizing your skin.

Is a natural complex sugar that forms a protective and moisturizing film on top of your skin and instantly improves its texture.

These guys—propylene and butylene—target hydration, as they help bind moisture and hold water to the skin.

Glycerin is a true multitasking ingredient with skin benefits we can't even count. In this formula, it guards your skin. It keeps the barrier strong against unwanted elements, but it also helps the penetration of the other active ingredients.

The Full List
Aqua, Glycerin, Propylene Glycol, Butylene Glycol, Pullulan, Lactobacillus Ferment Lysate, Alpha-glucan Oligosaccharide, Inulin, Raspberry Ketone, 1,2-Hexanediol, Sucrose, Cellulose Gum, Polysorbate 20, Ceratonia Siliqua Gum, Benzyl Glycol, Carrageenan, Caprylyl Glycol, Sodium Hydroxide, Ethylhexylglycerin.

Use 2 to 3 pumps of the Essence just after cleansing, before you apply anything else, morning or evening. Can be used every day. It's suitable for all skin types.

What is the difference between prebiotic and probiotic?
Similar sounding, but not the same. A prebiotic is the “food” for the probiotics, (a.k.a. the good and helpful bacteria) that naturally live on our skin but also can be found in food (e.g. yoghurt) and supplements (pills). Recent studies have shown that not only can you benefit from this wonder by eating it - it has also proven to be very efficient in skincare.

Can bacteria be vegan?
Yes, no problem! In the Essence we use fermented probiotic bacteria extracted from a vegan source.

Does the Essence have a smell?
No. Just like all Comme Deux products, the Essence is completely perfume-free and thus is great for sensitive skin.

How can it work for all skin types?
It’s all about balance. The Essence is developed using powerful pre- and postbiotics that are meant to balance your skin and prepare it to better absorb the active ingredients of all other products you use. Everyone will benefit from the magic.
For normal and dry skin it hydrates, moisturizes and maintains the skin’s balance.
For sensitive skin it restores and strengthens the skin barrier.
For combination & oily skin it rebalances the microbiota which eventually leads to a reduction of sebum production.
