ESK or - Evidence Skin Care – marks a new approach to skin care and is based on a simple philosophy - Evidence and Integrity.
In 2012, tired with all the "fluff" in this market, husband and wife team Daniel Rubinstein and Dr Ginni Mansberg founded an anti-aging skin care company to fill the gap in the market for an evidence-based skin care range.
Together with doctors, dermatologists and scientists, their Australian based company formulated and manufactured a range of skin care products based on the best available published scientific evidence. Available originally for distribution through medical practitioners only, in 2016 they expanded their range to launch ESK.
Using only active ingredients in the forms, concentrations and formulations supported by the strongest evidence; and with NO harmful chemicals, preservatives or perfumes - ESK is available to everyone and is designed to suit a variety of skin types to help reverse skin damage and slow the aging process.
We at ESK are proud to present what we believe are the best anti-aging creams and serums on the market. Its skin care that simply works.
ESK is a skin care range designed to help you fight back against the effects of a harsh environment and the aging process.

Vitamin A: Retinal (or Retinaldehyde)
Vitamin A has the most and strongest evidence for reducing the signs of skin aging1. It has been shown to stimulate skin cell growth and collagen production2. Retinal is the most effective and least irritating from of Vitamin A1 (Other commonly used forms of Vitamin A including Retinol and Retinyl Palmitate have weak or no evidence). It reduces the appearance of fine lines and pigmentation and increases skin elasticity and is also useful in managing acne3

what our customers think
Working with other people’s skin every day, I notice even the smallest changes. ESK delivers improvements to the skin that everyone will notice.
I feel younger!
I love the Reverse “C” Serum. My age spots are fading, my wrinkles are shrinking and my skin feels so much younger.
I use it every day
I use the peptide primer every day. Both on myself and on many of my clients. It goes on so well, absorbs perfectly and provides a great base on which to apply make up. My skin also just feels so much more plump, springy and soft. A great product for most skin types.
It just works!
I give my skin, and that of my clients, a real working over. Between the makeup, the heat and general grime, when we take off makeup, it needs to come off easily and leave the skin in perfect condition.The make up remover just works. It leaves the skin feeling soft and clean every time. What more do you want!
Wow. Great cleanser! Smells great, really gives a deep clean and leaves the skin feeling fresh and ready – never dry.
Thank you so much for your products.
I was converted within about 24 hours. Within just a day or two my skin was noticeably smoother and more glowy. The fresh scent and luxurious texture of the products has made my skin routine feel like an indulgence rather than a chore, and the results are truly impressive. My pores are noticeably clearer, complexion more even and, now that I'm a few weeks in, my pigmentation is starting to fade a little too.
I especially love the Hydroxy Cleanser — it leaves my skin feeling super clean but without drying it out, which is often a problem for me. The Zinc Shade is also a favourite. It feels so light going on and absorbs really well so my makeup doesn't slide off. It also doesn't make me break out (as with most chemical sunscreens).

Skin care and UV protection
April 20th, 2016
With Summer in the Southern Hemishpere behind us, now is the time to remember the value of using sunscreen throughout the year.
We focus too often on UVB, the sun’s burning rays that are strongest during the middle of the day in summer.
But UVA, the sun’s tanning and aging rays are all too often forgotten. Responsible for tanning, premature aging and also skin cancer, UVA is constant throughout the year and from sunrise to sunset.
