Essance is a specialty handcrafted herbal skincare company developed in the heart of Portland, Oregon. We believe it is just as important to feed our skin with freshly made skincare as just much as we love to nourish our body with fresh organic produces. We sourced many of the ingredients locally and organically here in Oregon. Every product is crafted with an intention to target a specific problem whether it’s relating to dry skin, oily skin, mature skin, sun burn, eczema, or muscle spasm. The beauty of Essance is that we also offer a recycle program for customers to return used containers for 15% discount toward their purchase to help with reducing waste on our planet.
Essance is very practical when it come to research and development. We first begin by seeking to remedy the specific problems our customers face, and then set out upon the search for a natural solution. Every ingredient is researched for its structures, properties, and efficacies. How ingredients combine and react to each others are both a science and an art. Sometime it can take up to a year before a product is released to be sold. The process involved with research, development, micro-testing, viscosity, permeability, stability testing and trial and errors. The final test involved a market group review from random customers, bloggers, aestheticians, medical practitioners, and acquaintances. Once the product has met our standard, it then passed on to the design team. The product is then named, released, and introduce to consumers, farmer markets, retailers locally and beyond-- including many New Seasons Market locations.
We believe that spending a few moments each day to take care of your skin is a vital part of your wellness. And so, we have set out to create for you an effortless means of taking care of your skin, your largest organ. It doesn't take much time to use these products, and when do, you will be rewarded with well-nourished skin.
