Activating Water Essence+: Your Questions Answered

In 2016 we launched Activating Water Essence: our very first universal product, created to be used by any and every skin as an essential preparation step to hydrate, condition, and revitalise. It has fast become a global best seller, with nine bottles sold every hour.

But having long been inspired by innovation, we continue to search for ways to harness the best of Nature and science to create even more nurturing and effective skincare. And so, it was after a number of new discoveries that we were inspired to upgrade our iconic hydrating essence with a new improved formula for optimal hydration. Here, we explain all you need to know about Activating Water Essence +:

 

1. Q: Why did Activating Water Essence need to change?

A: Activating Water Essence didn’t need to change; it’s loved for the way it instantly hydrates your skin. However, we recently discovered the superior moisture-boosting powers of two Marshmallow Root extracts and felt they would be an incredible addition to the original formula, along with new additional humectants that help to bind moisture to the skin for optimal hydration. We also developed a more efficient extraction method for our signature Jurlique Radiance Blend to complement the additional moisture boost, to calm and soothe, and to leave skin radiating with good health. When we can find a way to improve what we do and how our products work on your skin, we do it. And our new Activating Water Essence+ is the perfect case in point.

2. Q: How does the new Activating Water Essence+ compare to the original formula?

A: The new hydrating essence delivers optimal hydration and is clinically proven to improve skin hydration by 155% immediately after application*. Activating Water Essence+ is 29% more hydrating than our previous Activating Water Essence**. Its superior performance under test conditions was a big motivator for us to upgrade the original to this new improved formula.

3. Q: What makes this new formula so hydrating?

A: We’ve incorporated two Marshmallow Root extracts into the new formula: Bio-Intrinsic™ Marshmallow Root extract and Macerated Marshmallow Root extract. Together, they allow for more water to be retained by the skin for optimal hydration, improving the structure of the stratum corneum to fortify the skin’s protective barrier, and aiding the absorption of any product you use directly afterwards, such as a serum and moisturiser. We’ve also added in more water-attracting humectants for superior hydration. Activating Water Essence+ is the perfect preparation for the skin.

Q: How does Activating Water Essence+ make your skin glow?

A: When skin is starved of the moisture it needs, it becomes dull, dry, and fatigued. Well-hydrated skin becomes radiant skin. By delivering that all-important moisture hit, Activating Water Essence+ improves the structure of the stratum corneum which helps to improve hydration levels for a smoother, healthier,and naturaly radiant looking skin. This new improved formula also incorporates a new and enhanced version of our signature Jurlique Radiance Blend of biodynamic botanicals, enabling them to work harder and faster at soothing the skin and giving you back your glow.

5. Q: Which skin types can use Activating Water Essence+?

A: Each and every skin. Our new hydrating essence suits all skin types, all ages and stages, and genders. It’s a clean formula that’s free of commonly used irritants including Silicones, Petrolatum, Mineral Oil, Paraffin Wax, PEGs, Synthetic Glycols, Parabens, Formaldehyde donors, GMOs, and artificial colours and fragrances.

Q: Do I still need to use a mist when using Activating Water Essence+?

A: We recommend that you do. Each and every one of our mists provides an instant hit of hydration, relief, and refreshment to the skin. When followed with our new Activating Water Essence+ , your skin is treated to continuous hydration with botanicals that both attract and retain moisture, helping to more efficiently activate the ingredients within your serum and moisturiser to follow. The combination of a mist and our new improved formula of Activating Water Essence+ is the perfect preparation for your hydrated, radiant skin.

A: Our new hydrating essence is a quick, skin-prep step that takes place between misting and moisturising. You use it twice daily, just as you would the original formula. First, cleanse and mist your skin, apply 3-4 drops into the palms of your hands, take a moment to breathe in the uplifting aroma to ignite your senses, and then gently press Activating Water Essence+ into your face, neck, and down to your décolletage. Follow with your serum, eye treatment, and then your moisturiser.
