Our Kombucha Essence Toner is made with local PA Baba's Brew plain Kombucha! This healthy skin microbe treat also contains a fruit acid complex for gentle acid exfoliation, as well as white willow bark to help balance oily skin types. Applied as a toner, it will also help your other skincare products to better absorb.

Ingredient Deep Dive:

🌞 Kombucha: Kombucha is a type of fermented tea that is chock full of commensal (good) bacteria that helps to balance your skin microbiome. This helps your skin's natural ability to defend itself, maintain moisture, and defend itself against environmental stressors. Kombucha is also full of B-vitamins essential to skin health, and Vitamin C, all of which help to support cellular function and oxidative repair, and to improve skin elasticity.

🌞 Fruit Acid Complex: I've included a multifruit acid complex here (kiwi, passionfruit, mangosteen, pineapple, lychee and more) to aid your skin with gentle exfoliation, which brightens your skin and helps your other products to better absorb

🌞 White Willow Bark Extract, a natural source of salicylic acid, helps your skin to better control oil and to deeply exfoliate oily skin

🌞 Panthenol (vitamin B5) is added to maintain your skin's health and to help improve skin barrier function

🌞 Naturally preserved with fermented radish, coconut, ginger, garlic and wasabi extracts.

I’ve tried quite a few toners (and lots of other products! ;) and this one is my absolute fave! Got it when the cleanser came out. It’s the perfect follow up to cleansing for me not to strong but you know it’s working. And it smells great! Make it year-round, PLEEESE!!!

for skin that cannot tolerate toner- this is it!

I have super sensitive skin and have never found a toner that did not increase redness until now. This is such a wonderful product! It is all efficacy and no irritation. I have started using it first thing in the morning (in place of Peppermint Water) followed by Asian Powerhouse Serum and Red Wine Pressed Serum. This is the perfect combination. At bedtime I use the Peppermint Water (or a double cleanse of Bamboo Cleansing Balm- sadly discontinued, it was the best first cleanse for sensitive skin- and Goats Milk Foaming Cleanser if I have the wherewithal), Marine Serum, and Sake and Rice Sleeping Pack. My skin has a radiance unexpected in someone my age, and no rosacea at all.

An Ideal Toner

This toner leaves my skin looking super clean and healthy. It works equally well in both my morning and evening routines. Its kombucha scent is as expected, but dissipates quickly.

Skin Concerns: Signs of aging
Fell in love instantly!

As soon as I swiped this on my face, I fell in love! I can’t explain it, but it gave my skin just the right amount of tightness to feel clean and bright but not dry or uncomfortable. It also made a great base for my serums to absorb quickly!

Skin Type: Oily, Combination

Helps my products absorb

I have oily/combination skin and I find a lot of my SB products, much as I love what they do for my skin, feel sticky for a long time after I apply them. Kombucha toner not only absorbed in well and didn’t feel sticky after, I immediately noticed how much better my serums, etc absorbed into my skin. I love this toner!
