Trevor Steyn is the founder of Esse Products, and studied chemistry, obtaining his masters degree in 1997. It was here that his mentor, Professor Siegfried Drewes, inspired a passion for the chemistry of Africa’s plants. Esse’s unwavering belief in nature has resulted in a fierce desire to protect our natural resources. South Africa is home to almost a quarter of the world’s plant species so the Esse has chosen the best of Africa’s plants to deliver potent new actives in their products. Esse’s ingredients include Baobab, Kalahari Melon, Kigelia and Marula.

These plants are wild-harvested to maximise the potency of the extracts. VEGANEsse is accredited by the Vegan Society. This means that no animal products are used in Esse and  is accredited by Beauty Without Cruelty. They do not test our products on animals and will not source ingredients from suppliers who do.
