NEW! BARRIER BOOSTER
ORANGE FERMENT ESSENCE

C HOW EXTRA YOUR GLOW CAN BE

EXTRA BRIGHT + EXTRA HYDRATED + EXTRA GLOWY

WHAT IS AN ESSENCE?

Essences originated in South Korea (thank you, K-Beauty)—they have the lightweight, watery texture of a toner and the powerful hydrating benefits of a serum. Formulated with active hydrating and nourishing ingredients, essences add moisture to the surface of your skin and prep your skin for the rest of your routine. Ole was inspired by their unique format as a new way to deliver vitamin C to skin.

 

So, how is an essence different from a toner? While an essence’s main function is to hydrate and boost the rest of your skincare routine, a toner is meant to exfoliate and clear away surface impurities like dirt and dead skin cells.

 

WHY DO I NEED AN ESSENCE?

Think of your skin as a sponge. When a sponge is dry, it has a harder time absorbing liquid. When a sponge is wet, it quickly soaks up moisture. When your skin is properly hydrated, it’s easier to apply the rest of your skincare routine on top.

 

Barrier Booster Orange Ferment Essence does just that: It quenches skin in moisture, while also brightening your complexion and reducing the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Our ultra-nourishing essence also strengthens your skin barrier and defends your skin against pollution and free radicals.

 

HOW DO I WORK AN ESSENCE INTO MY ROUTINE?

WHAT’S IN BARRIER BOOSTER?

  • Fermented orange peel extract: Breaks down the comprehensive goodness of an orange into smaller molecules, optimizing delivery to the surface of the skin; helps nourish, condition and refresh skin.
  • Orange stem cells: The nutritional epicenter of the orange and responsible for its growth; contain many skin-loving ingredients, such as amino acids, AHAs, sugars, peptides and proteins, to help provide antioxidant protection.

The formula is also packed with ethyl ascorbic acid (aka vitamin C), a potent next-generation vitamin c derivative with superior stability and antioxidant capacity. Vitamin C helps brighten and defend skin against environmental aggressors like pollution. We also included hyaluronic and polyglutamic acids to bind moisture and help plump skin with hydration, and niacinamide to help support clear, healthy-looking skin.
