ROOTS Biotic Broth™

Burdock, Ginger and Licorice root extracts are bio-processed with multi-strain probiotic bacteria to create a unique fermentation broth rich in nutrients, lactic acid, and bio-activated root extracts that purify, soothe and brighten the skin while supporting the barrier and microbiome.

Power Bio-actives

Lactobionic Acid: This next-generation acid (polyhydroxy bionic acid) has clinically proven anti-aging and skin smoothing effects like other AHAs, but is gentler and has advanced benefits such as UV protection, antioxidant activity, melanin inhibition, collagen protection, ultra hydration and prebiotic action.

Willowbark Extract: A natural source of beta-hydroxy acid this extract provides gentle, yet highly effective exfoliating and pore-clearing benefits. Increases cellular renewal for smoother and more-even complexion.

Hyaluronic Acid: Naturally occurring in the skin, hyaluronic acid is intensely hydrating and holds hydration in the skin for smoother, plumper skin cells and visible reduction in fine lines and wrinkles.

Prebiotics: Inulin and alpha-glucan oligosaccharide feed the friendly bacteria on your skin. Clinically shown to increase skin-barrier function, hydration and overall skin health.


On clean skin, apply 2-3 pumps of essence onto a cotton pad and sweep over face, neck and décolleté.
Pro tip: For a more hydrating feel, forgo the cotton and simply pat onto face, neck and décolleté.

Use AM and PM. Best as a pre-treatment before the Bio-Shroom Rejuvenating Serum and Bio Barrier Nourishing Oil.

Step 1 of 3

This is the skincare product I never knew I needed! Refining Essence, the first step in the Biophile trio, seems to wake up the skin and prep it for the next two steps by creating a smooth and even surface for effective distribution/maximum absorption of the other products. As someone who has never taken to using ‘toner’ over the years, I was surprised at how essential Essence has become to my routine.

Wish I could use this on my whole body!

I love this oil. It's so light but effective. Other oils have felt sticky and not as moisturizing but this one absorbs quickly and feels absolutely delightful on my skin. My skin simply drinks it up! Definitely going to keep this as a staple in my beauty care practice.
