“For every medical story I cover, I have always looked to the evidence published in respected peer review journals,” said Dr Mansberg.
“When in 2011 and 2012, I did a number of segments about skin care, viewer response was huge, all with the same question, ‘so what products should I buy?’. I looked at over 200 brands but still couldn’t give an answer I was comfortable with. It was probably my frustration with the marketing hype peddled as science that ultimately lead me to answer the question and create ESK.”
ESK has opened the door to consumers by providing easily accessible cosmeceutical skin care that really makes a difference. Mansberg emphasises on three important things to look for in a skin care product, evidence, integrity and simplicity. The range is suitable for all skin types including those who suffer from acne, pigmentation, sensitive skin and the signs of ageing.
They have also created the Reverse C Serum, an anti-oxidant serum formulated in the scientifically validated form, concentration and pH. With vitamins C (L-Ascorbic Acid) and E (alpha Tocopherol) in their most potent form, it hydrates, protects the skin, repairs it and prevents the appearance of ageing. It often includes dealing with fine lines, wrinkles, pigmentation and skin roughness.
“For me this is where it all started. Being able to create a Vitamin C Serum based on the studies was a critical first step,” said Mansberg.
The Ultimate A is a Vitamin A (Retinal) and B3 (Niacinamide) based night cream. Vitamin A is the ingredient with the strongest anti-ageing evidence and Retinal is the most effective and least irritating form of vitamin A. It promotes collagen growth and regulates the skin effectively without irritation. Ultimate A is designed to plump the skin, reduce wrinkles, fine lines and pigmentation and improve the skin barrier.
Enlighten brightens the skin particularly the age spots and hyper-pigmented skin. With 4-n-butylresorcinol (a highly effective, safe and low irritant tyrosinase inhibitor) and Niacinamide (vitamin B3), it brightens skin appearance and provides a more even skin tone. Niacinamide provides visible improvements within 3 weeks, 4-n-butylresorcinol is effective after 2 to 3 months.
