APAC Business Awards 2021

Each year APAC Insider endeavours to recognise only the most deserving brands for excellence in business, with nominees judged via rigorous evaluation. Their “approach reflects the innovative, dedicated and results-focused culture…” of the Asia-Pacific Region.

The assessment criteria for the Business Awards focuses on the merits of the products, skills and/or services offered by each nominated company. This approach has proven successful, as it allows the committee to identify only the most outstanding businesses from across the APAC region.

“To move successfully from nominee to awardee there must be evidence of expertise within a given field, dedication to customer service, and an ongoing commitment to excellence and innovation.” 

A Rewarding Experience

The recognition of APAC Insider allows esst to get into the hands of those who need it. This is why we developed the product: to make sanitising your hands effortless and effective.

The teams at esst, our laboratory partners, as well as the packaging and delivery services have all worked together to create a sanitising hand cream that is elegant, efficacious, and eco-friendly. It is so rewarding to be recognised for all the hard work and we’re thrilled to be part of the APAC Insider community.

We embrace this chance to share our story and look forward to the opportunities that come with being Best New Luxury Skincare Product 2021.

Why esst Is Essential

The impetus behind esst was to provide a nourishing hand sanitising cream that could be used often without stripping the skin’s natural barrier. Ensuring antibacterial properties was essential, as well as being vegan, cruelty-free, and environmentally friendly.

esst doesn’t want you to have to think about the essential components of sanitising, moisturising, and soothing your hands; that’s our job. We just want you to know that every time you use esst, your hands are protected by a premium hand cream safe from germs, and bacteria. We took rigorous measures to claim esst kills 99.9% of bacteria through extensive lab tests.

The bonus aromatherapy benefits offer uplifting, calming, and stabilising effects, giving you that luxurious moment of self-care and imagination.

Informed Beauty

esst is dedicated to developing sustainable products in conjunction with socially responsible manufacturers and local producers.

Our supplier specialises in manufacturing quality recyclable PET bottles and closures. Both the tube manufacturer and the bottle manufacturer are Australian companies, which is a genuine achievement for a cosmetic brand to be so dedicated in sourcing and supporting local suppliers.

Manufactured on a solar farm in NSW, the carbon-neutral sugar cane PE in conjunction with the farm’s green energy result in tubes that have almost no carbon footprint. We also provide a service by which the empty tubes are recycled. Even our shipping partner’s packaging is biodegradable and compostable.

End-to-end, esst is Informed Beauty.
