Virtual Event Virtual Event

July 13 @ 2:00 pm - 2:45 pm BST

About this event

This bespoke masterclass is prepared and presented by Trevor Steyn, founder of Esse.

This is Conscious Beauty Union’s first brand-sponsored event, which allows us to make this Masterclass free to attend or watch the playback at a time that suits your schedule.

We believe that the Esse Probiotic Foundation is a truly innovative product, and you will hear first-hand from the creator of this unique, game-changing foundation about the importance of rewilding the skin biome and the benefits of having a colour cosmetic that can help support this. 

The session covers topics including:

  • What is the microbiome and why is it important for our health?
  • Some of the challenges of this kind of formulation.
  • What makes this formulation so unique
  • Shade range
  • The sustainability initiatives of Esse.

Trevor Steyn studied organic chemistry and completed a Masters degree in 1996. His mentor, Prof Siegfried Drewes, inspired a passion for the chemistry of Africa’s plants. After discovering the potential of some of these plants in skin care, Trevor formulated and founded Esse. Work on Esse began in 2000 with research into Kigelia africana, the African Sausage tree. After two years of formulating, Esse was born in 2002.

Trevor is passionate about the skin microbiome, sustainable living and preserving Africa’s biodiversity. He surfs, plays squash and practices yoga. He lives on a farm in Richmond, South Africa with his wife and children.

“I would like to play a part in creating a beautiful, indefinitely sustainable future,” he says “Esse will continue on its path to build more effective and more sustainable products”
