Launched in August 2019, Bescher Beauty is an Australian company and the world’s first taking advantage of the remarkable properties of sea cucumber collagen.

Proving just how quickly the brand has amassed a cult following, the latest product release - Sea Cucumber Collagen Glow Toner - sold out less than a week after going on sale (and it's not the first product from the brand to do so).

Best of all, their prods are packaged in post-consumer recycled and rainforest sustainable certified (FSC) cardboard and created free from cruelty, toxins, and harmful chemicals.

If you suffer from sensitive skin and struggle to find products that work for you then biobod could just be the answer to your prayers.
