Chemist Trevor Steyn has spent years studying the potent anti-aging properties of South African flowers, fruits and plants. A firm believer that extracts from nature, not synthetic chemicals, are the key to beautiful skin, Trevor has developed a skincare line full of flora indigenous to the South African bushveld that effectively protects the skin’s ph balance and stimulates cell regeneration. This spa-caliber product is called Esse. But you don't have to go to South Africa or a spa to experience the benefits because it is now available at The Grommet. All-natural and preservative-free, Esse is certified organic by stringent European standards. It's also vegan, cruelty-free, locally-sourced and ethically-harvested by locals who are fairly and promptly paid. Packaged using recyclable glass, Esse is a must-try for those seeking a natural solution that's not only created with healthy skin in mind, but made with respect for the world we live in.

    I am trying to order the trial/gift set but a shipping icon came up and stated this product was NOT available to ship to my address. I live in Erwin, Tennessee, U.S.A. So...what's up with this? Elizabeth

    Are these products safe for sensitive skin? I have a strong sensitivity to fragrances, but don't seem affected by essential oils, for example.

    @Mallory We use only whole essential oils in our products as fragrance. No distillates and obviously no synthetic fragrance. The products have a great track record on sensitive skin.

    Do you have any products that will get rid of sun spots?

    @julie Hi Julie - we don't have anything specifically for sunspots. Our cream mask will lighten them but there are probably better products out there to treat sunspots.

    I am a 50 year old female that still suffers from acne. I currently use "organic" face products. Both cleansing and makeup, but still have breakouts. Suggestions on using your products for this old continued problem?

    @Guest Hi. At 50, it is likely that your acne has its root cause in an imbalance in your skin's microbiome. Our range can help for this - the whole range is pH balanced, mimics sebum and uses very mild preservatives. These factors help to restore the natural microbial balance on the surface of skin.

    I am assuming that you don't use anti-microbial soaps (or soap at all). If you do, then you should stop.

    Hi, do your products have broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection? I see that the moisturizer is listed as having UV protection, but what is the specific SPF rating?
