Revitalizing a 2,000 year old Korean Beauty staple, our holy trinity of rice water, mugwort and ginseng is the nourishing base for a vitamin and mineral rich elixir.

5 fl oz (150ml)

Ceramiracle is reviving an ancient anti-aging beauty secret; essence. Building on our BFE Complex (BioFerment Essence), we’ve harnessed the powerful anti-aging properties of saccharomyces from organic Korean rice water, mugwort and ginseng. We’ve formulated our nourishing facial essence with a base of 92% BFE Complex; a potent mixture of vitamins and minerals. Essence has been a skincare routine staple in Asia for its known benefits of improving complexion, skin firmness and anti-aging properties. An initial study conducted with 30 volunteers over the course of 56 days resulted in noticeable skin improvements. Participants saw 29% increase of skin hydration, 7.5% increase of skin elasticity and 12% increase of skin smoothness. Our beauty holy trinity BFE Complex works synergistically with your skin to develop a moisture reservoir to deeply hydrate, while immediately helping to soften skin.
“First Light The Essence is a testament to how common food ingredients can have a profound effect on your skin. A skin conditioner (or toner) is the first leave-on product to touch our skin, so you’ll want to set a base layer that is pure, clean and comfortable on delicate skin. I always recommend patting a few drops over clean skin to help prepare and condition. This essential first step will help achieve baby soft skin, which is a tell-tale sign of healthy skin.”

    • BFE COMPLEX -- Co-developed with Korean cosmetic scientist, Sarang Kim, Ceramiracle’s proprietary bioferment essence was inspired by a 2,000 year old Geumsan Insamju (ginseng wine) recipe. First recorded in the Baekje period (18 BC-AD 660), the original brewing method called for a mixture of ginseng, steamed rice and mugwort to be fermented together over the course of 100 days. This unusual blend resulted in a highly potent “ginseng wine” which was thought to treat multiple ailments, including dry skin. Our BFE Complex is the result of modern technology merging with a fermented botanical blend of three key traditional Korean foods; rice, ginseng and mugwort.
    • Mugwort -- A purifying herb used extensively in traditional oriental medicine and is known for improving skin hydration and helping to heal skin blemishes.
    • Ginseng -- Revered “King of Herbs” this prized root is a treasure packed with anti-aging properties that help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

    Start by applying a few drops of The Essence onto your clean, dry face and neck. After gentle patting and covering your entire face, allow nourishing essence to dry before moving on to additional skincare steps. Best results are achieved when used daily. The Essence can be used in your morning or evening skincare routine. For additional skin nourishing benefits, continue your skincare routine by applying FIRST LIGHT THE SERUM to your freshly toned, dry face.
