Toner Plus is part of Esse’s new BIOME range, made with probiotics to nourish and balance your skin’s microbial ecosystem. Using this toner daily will leave your skin smoother, firmer and younger-looking, by maintaining the delicate balance of this complex ecosystem. This innovative product is more than just a simple toner; it improves your skin’s barrier function and immune system, using Esse BIOME’s prebiotic and probiotic technology*. Plus, with a hint of neroli and vanilla, Toner Plus smells as good as it feels!

Benefits of Toner Plus:

  • Boosts moisture levels in your skin, giving you a smoother, younger-looking complexion
  • Reduces inflammation and redness
  • Firms and tones the skin, and slows down the signs of ageing  

The idea of a facial toner containing bacteria might sound strange – after all, we clean our skin to get rid of bacteria! But of course, not all bacteria are harmful; many are beneficial, and necessary for our wellbeing. Toner Plus is formulated to help these beneficial microbes thrive.

How Does Toner Plus Work?

  • Improves the skin’s barrier function
  • Tightens the junctions between skin cells
  • Improves the skin’s immune system with probiotics
  • Boosts the population of your skin’s beneficial bacteria with prebiotics

Balancing the “ecosystem” of your skin:

There are two types of bacteria which work to promote the skin cells’ production of defensin, a substance that helps to regulate the skin’s microbial population. These beneficial bacteria (namely Lactobacillus casei and Lactobacillus acidophilus) are found naturally on your skin’s surface; but using products with antimicrobial agents and synthetic preservatives will decrease their levels dramatically. The lactobacillus in Toner Plus helps to get things back in balance again.

Did You Know? By early childhood, the human body is an ecosystem that includes 10 bacteria for every cell. So that means we carry more bacteria than actual cells – wow!

Eczema and bacteria imbalance:

Eczema-prone skin typically has a microbial imbalance, with a dominance of bacteria known as Staphylococcus aureus. The skin needs a more balanced microbial ecosystem, richer in beneficial bacteria, to keep it healthy and robust.

*The result of over 5 years’ intense scientific research into the relationship between skin and the microbes that live on its surface.


  • Spritz Toner Plus onto cleansed skin. Spread lightly over your face and neck with clean fingertips. Apply a natural moisturiser.
  • Use Toner Plus twice daily; you should start to see results after 2 weeks.
  • If you have eczema, apply Esse Repair Oil to the affected area before using Toner Plus.

Please Note:

All Esse products are balanced at an acid pH, which is compatible with your skin. For best results, use Toner Plus only with other Esse products (cleanser, moisturiser etc). Mixing it with other brands is not recommended.
