Essential Skin Food

Skin Nourishing Collagen Support Complex

597 Reviews 4.6 stars based on 597 Customer Reviews

Essential Skin Food is perfect for anyone who wants to achieve skin that looks and feels smooth, tight, and youthful at any age. Made with 6 plant-based skin nourishing compounds, this formula works to encourage healthy collagen production — your skin’s main building blocks — for firmer, plumper-looking skin from head to toe.

With just one capsule a day, you can help: *

  • Support your skin’s natural “plumpness” — for fewer visible wrinkles and fine lines
  • Encourage healthy cell-turnover — so skin looks smooth, supple, and radiant all day long 
  • Fight elastin breakdown that can result in sagging skin — to visibly tighten and firm up skin texture  
  • Fight skin-damaging free-radicals — to promote a clear, hydrated, and healthy-looking complexion

*All individuals are unique. As such, your results can and will vary.

Meet the Ingredients:

Dermaval™: This natural collagen-booster uses phytonutrient compounds like Pomegranate Extract, Coffeeberry, Quercetin, and Camu Camu to fight elastin breakdown in the body and support skin’s elasticity and firmness.

Vitamin C: As a natural antioxidant, Vitamin C can help fight off skin-damaging free radicals — to help you achieve brighter, more radiant-looking skin.* 1

Triple Amino Acid Complex: Amino acids are the building blocks of collagen in the body — which is why Essential Skin Food contains Lysine, and L-Proline. Each work synergistically to help plump and tighten skin texture over time.* 2

Cosmythic™: This polyphenol-rich skin elixir is known for its ability to “energize” old fibroblasts in the body (the cells responsible for collagen production) — for radiant, youthful-looking skin at any age.

*Individual results can and will vary.

Who should use Essential Skin Food?
Essential Skin Food is designed for anyone who wants to improve the overall appearance and texture of their skin from head to toe. It can be especially beneficial if you’ve noticed your skin has started to sag, wrinkle, or become “dull” over time. This formula works to restore a primary cause of visible skin aging: Low collagen levels. By helping your body support its natural collagen production, you can enjoy a younger, radiant appearance at any age. * 

*All individuals are unique. As such, your results can and will vary. 

What makes Essential Skin Food different from other collagen supplements? 
Unlike the majority of collagen supplements, Essential Skin Food is a natural collagen builder, and actually contains zero animal-based collagen. Instead, it’s made up of 100% plant-based ingredients that help SUPPORT natural collagen growth within your body. By ingesting collagen from another animal, you can “replace” your own. Because this is a completely plant-based formula, it can easily fit into most diets.*   

How can I tell if I need a collagen supplement? 
Natural collagen production starts to slow in our mid-30s — and by age 40, your body loses collagen faster than it can make it. Typically, you start to notice it in your skin first — through sagging skin, wrinkles, and a dull complexion. But soon, it can take a toll on your joints, nails, hair, and even digestion. That’s why I recommend taking a daily collagen supplement as soon as possible, to help you feel more confident in your appearance and overall health.  

Does Essential Skin Food contain any animal-based collagen? 
No! Essential Skin Food contains zero animal-based ingredients. Instead, it’s an 100% plant-based collagen supporter.  That’s why Essential Skin Food combines plant-based vitamins, minerals, herb-extracts, and essential amino-acids to support your natural collagen production — for smooth skin, healthy nails, strong hair, and sturdy tissue throughout the body.* 3

Can I expect to notice other benefits? 
Absolutely! After all, collagen is the #1 protein in your entire body — and aside from your skin, it also keeps your hair, nails, bones, and even gut strong and healthy. So don’t be surprised if after taking Essential Skin Food,  your hair starts looking a bit shinier, your joints feel more limber, or you notice your digestion is smoother than normal. 

How should I take Essential Skin Food? 
Making Essential Skin Food a part of your daily routine is easy. Simply take 1 easy-to-swallow capsule with a full glass of water once a day. That’s it!    

Can I purchase Essential Skin Food in stores?
We’ve decided to keep this formula online-only. This way, we can cut out the middleman, and pass all savings directly to you.

How pure is Essential Skin Food?
Like all of our ActivatedYou® formulas, Essential Skin Food was designed with quality and purity as the #1 priority. Our products are formulated with natural, plant-based compounds, and every batch is carefully tested for quality and potency at an independent, 3rd party facility. 

What if Essential Skin Food doesn’t work for me?
We understand that everyone’s skin is different — which is why your order is covered by our 90-day ActivatedYou® Promise. If you’re not thrilled with your results for any reason, simply reach out to your customer care team to learn the easiest way to send back your bottles, and we’ll issue a full refund of your purchase price — even if you’ve used the entire supply!

Aug 9 2023   This stuff is amazing!

“I take 1 every morning then I wash my face do a daily chemical peel, toner, essence, and then my skincare products. I use a lot, but I noticed the difference when I added these in. I've been taking them for 4 months. My face has never been clearer and 1 color, now it is! Thank u SKIN FOOD!!!!!!”

Jul 31 2023   Tighter skin

“I begin using the Essential Skinfood supplement about 2 months ago. Initially, I didn’t see much difference. I also began doing some facial Pilates exercises soon after starting the ES. Within the last two weeks, I’ve noticed a huge difference in the smoothness of my skin and that it just looks more glowy WITHOUT wearing any makeup. It’s very exciting! I’m very happy with this product. My advice would be to give ES at least two months to see results. We didn’t get our skin issues overnight so improving them doesn’t happen overnight either :)”

“After using the product for 6 months , I am very pleased with the results. My skin and hair are healthier. I also love the newer bottle. I make my own salves and teas . The wider mouth and the cobalt blue color is perfect for reuse. The label is so. easy to remove .”

Jul 24 2023   Diminishing lines

“I noticed the lines around my eyes were diminishing within a few days. That impressed me because I had been using an “good” eye cream that did not give me dramatic results like that. I am now on my second bottle and the lines still look softer.”

Jul 22 2023   Beautiful change

“There are so many topical “miracles” out there, if I only had tried to help the “insides” first - I could have saved a lot of headaches! Taking this throughout this year has really helped put my skin back to rights! Pores are visibly smaller, adult acne has cleared, and the texture of my skin is just better! Yes, I have adjusted my diet to lesson the “bad” too, but I tested the results by stopping to these for almost two weeks, and WOW, did I start right back up before that two weeks was up. It helps, I can’t say it more clearly other than it helps your skin find it’s pretty again!”

“My skin feels amazing. Sooo soft. Like a baby. I used to have dry forearm (with little pimples per say) but not anymore. My arms are so smooth. My face feels amazing, I was battling with dryness, almost flaky skin and that is GONE! I been using it now for a little over amonth and couldn’t be any more satisfied with the product. I already told all my friends and family about it so… you know is AMAZING !!!”

Jul 19 2023   So far so good

“A month in, I can't say that I have noticed a difference at this point in time, however, I haven't noticed any ill effects either, and that is a plus! I am looking forward to continuing with the supplements and see what happens!”
