Known as liquid gold in the skincare world, kombucha is a valuable ingredient to protect against pollution and free radicals for younger-looking skin. Natural beauty brand, Fresh, brings us a Kombucha facial treatment essence to deliver smooth and luminous skin.

Being exposed to pollutants outdoors and indoors every day, their essence is the perfect gift idea to protect your skin and keep it healthy. Kombucha, also known as fermented black tea, helps smooth and increase luminosity, while hyaluronic acid works to attract and seal in moisture for supple skin. This essence also contains Mandarin Peel Extract and Kigelia Africana fruit extract to smoothen the skin texture.

The number one best-selling formula from Origins is back with an upgrade. Mega-Mushroom Treatment Lotion is a lightweight, watery lotion that deeply penetrates the skin’s surface to hydrate and soothe the appearance of redness. The new formula strengthens the skin’s barrier to protect against external irritants.

Using a new Plantmunity Technology (featuring Adaptogenic Licorice Root with Glycyrrhetinic Acid), the lotion helps strengthen skin by activating its natural self-defence. As a result, it will further protect against daily environmental aggressors that can lead to early visible signs of ageing.
