Storing temperature is critical when it comes to natural products. Please, for ultimate texture and functionality, follow the instructions given.

SUITABLE FOR: all skin types, especially dehydrated skin.

SKIN FEEL: hydrated, softer, deeply moisturized, plumper; the feeling of dryness disappears.

Bioactive skincare by Phaedra Botanicals
Eratō's Multipurpose Essence

Our organic Ente plum oil from Agen, France, provides our Eratō’s Multipurpose Essence with full-spectrum vitamin E.

α-, β-, γ-, and δ-tocopherols and α-, β-, γ-, and δ-tocotrienols protect the skin against oxidative stress, prevent UV-induced free radical damage, and have an anti-inflammatory role.

Linoleic (omega-6) and oleic (omega-9) acids in our Eratō’s Multipurpose Essence are not only anti-inflammatory, but they have skin barrier repair effects as well.

They improve skin function and appearance and provide skin with incredible softness on touch. They play a critical role in the structural integrity and skin barrier function.

Rutin, a member of the bioflavonoid family, has protective effects under conditions of oxidative stress, increases elasticity, and decreases the length and number of wrinkles. It possesses potent antioxidant effects and repairs ROS-induced skin aging, aka oxidative-stress-induced damage.

Beta-carotene, lutein, and amazing lycopene are present in our tomato extract and act against cellular damage and the effects of aging. They stimulate collagen and elastin in the skin to increase its density, elasticity, and firmness. They also repair UV-induced damage and reduce water loss, helping to keep your skin hydrated.

Vitamins A, E, K, B1, B2, B6, B12, and naturally occurring vitamin C in our mango extract play an essential role in collagen formation and restoration of healthy skin. They protect cells from damage and water loss, support cell reproduction while reducing inflammation, dryness, and acne. They help to improve conditions such as psoriasis and eczema.


We always cold-press each component fresh for our Eratō’s Multipurpose Essence to guarantee nutrient-density that delivers a spectrum of vitamins, antioxidants, and polyphenols to battle dryness in the skin and repair the skin’s natural barrier while combating aging.

I absolutely love Eratō’s Essence. I have established a ritual when I leave the essence on the heating to warm up and treat myself to some proper skin treatment. The scent is one in a million and my skin becomes so soft with it. Absolute love!

This is the one product that goes everywhere with me, it’s perfectly adequate as a stand alone moisturiser but becomes next level skin care when paired with the Transcendent lotion.

I absolutely love this one. I use a small amount daily before sleep and wake up with beautiful hydrated and soft skin—big fan.

I think Phaedra Botanicals is a master creator of wonderfully smelling products without the use of essential oils. That is what I love about their products.

This one is truly extraordinary. This essence tends to crystalize, but I actually love the tiny bits of mango melting in the palm of my hand.

It is a very nourishing product.

Eratō’s Essence is my favorite product from Phaedra Botanicals. I have been using it for more than six months now. It is so nutritious to my skin, body, and hair. I use it all over, with the 50ml version lasting me about 6-8 weeks. I literally cannot say enough good things about it. It nourishes, hydrates profoundly, and protects the skin against cold weather better than anything else I have ever tried without making me look greasy. And the smell is simply amazing without the use of essential oils. Perfect product! I recommend it.

I always switch to Eratō’s Essence in winter. I live in Colorado, and my skin can get extremely dry during winter with minor eczema. This essence helps me prevent both.

Amazing. It delivers perfect hydration. I use it every night and morning on my face and body. When applied to damp skin, a tiny amount is absolutely sufficient. I used to have extremely dry skin on my body and around my lips, but Erato’s Essence fixed it. Plus, it smells divine!

Toller Duft und angenehm auf der Haut, da macht die Abendroutine noch mehr Spaß. Auch als ‘Sensibelchen’ vertrage ich die Essence sehr gut.

Ich mag das Serum sehr. Der Duft ist wirklich sehr lecker (Marzipan, leicht fruchtig-süß). Ich nutze es morgens nach einem Toner. Es zieht schnell ein und meine leicht trockene Haut wird gut gepflegt.

It is amazing! Very nourishing, but still lightweight on the skin. Love the fruity scent of it and that it doesn’t contain any essential oils. I sometimes layer it with a few extra drops of Ex Prunis applied before, when my skin is feeling very dry – magic :)

My skin was not in the best shape: pimples from the mask, redness and dehydration from perimenopause, very dry skin, so I waited for Erato’s like a miracle because my bottle of EX-PRUNIS was empty. I try some other products but with no result. It’s been around 2 weeks now that I use Erato’s, my skin is back to normal, love the texture, the smell, the application is one happy moment and with the Covid, every little pleasure counts. So I wait with great impatience for the new batch. My routine will be Erato’s in the morning and Ex-Prunis at night.

I love the Eratō’s Multipurpose Essence. I am Ex Prūnīs user for a very long time, but this rich, beautiful texture with a unique scent is my absolute new favorite. It is so rich, smells fantastic, and my skin is just so balanced and healthy since I started using it. I am in love with this most recent addition! Bravo!

Amazing! I put it every day on my dry skin; it nourishes my skin perfectly; you can feel that it was well sectioned, the very good quality of the multipurpose is sensational, the scent is perfect.

Partner’s review (Genuine Selection)

I have tried many facial oils, so I wasn’t expecting to be as blown away as I am with this oil. Although it’s ‘simple’ compared to other ingredient lists, don’t be fooled! This one works like a charm. The texture is very silky, and the smell is gorgeous (like almonds). It never causes any irritation. I can use it on its own or how I prefer it – mixed with a hydration serum. I also use it during the day if my skin feels dryer, and I have never had such soft skin as with this facial oil – big love!

I have been using Ex Prūnīs for about one and a half years now, applying it every night, and this is an excellent addition to it. It is slightly heavier, and the skin feels protected with this essence even during colder months. Most recently, I tried their mask as well and used the essence after washing it off. I can honestly say that I love all Phaedra Botanicals’ products and definitely would recommend them to those who haven’t tried them yet.
