"After my hysterectomy (due to ovarian cancer), I went into surgical menopause almost immediately. Since then, I noticed a change in my skin so this serum was the perfect solution to my new, menopausal skin. Not only does it provide all the benefits I am looking for but it also first my no.1 criteria – toxin free. As part of my prevention of a recurrence of my cancer, I don't want to use cosmetics that contain toxins known to cause endocrine disruption, mimic estrogens or cause cancer. Also, we love the fact the Esse is so committed to non-toxic living that they have used recyclable glass packaging for this product!".
