Everybody is different, and that's why finding a skincare product that works for you can be difficult, especially if you struggle with sensitive skin. The skincare industry is massive, pushing countless products that have little-known origin, or zero organic components. Trialling them all, taking a gamble with your skin each time sounds like an arduous task, which is why you can confidently end the search right here with Bescher.
Bescher is a skincare brand developed by Renee Alyce, growing famous for their groundbreaking use of Sea Cucumber collagen, creating products inspired by Renee's own skin health journey that led her to discover the rejuvenating properties of Sea Cucumbers and how their nutrient-rich compositions can be used to heal and promote, happy, healthy skin.
Sea Cucumbers (also known as holothurians or trepang) are cylindrical, cucumber-shaped marine invertebrates that possess extraordinary regenerative properties. They are rich in bio-active compounds that allow them to thrive and heal themselves as they drift along the shallow sea floor, consuming the algae that fuels their regenerative processes. Sea Cucumbers contain a unique source of marine collagen that promotes anti-aging effects, repairs skin and elastin protein fibres, resulting in a smooth and healthy complexion. Sea Cucumber collagen also contains a range of essential amino acids and moisturising properties that assist in preventing skin irritation, damage, and have proven effective in treating eczema or acne-prone skin.
Renee personally suffered from a multitude of skin issues, including redness, pigmentation and pimples. Her skin subjected to harsh environments, Renee struggled to find a skin-care product that worked with her. She spent her early years struggling to cover it all with foundation, and her confidence suffered along with her skin. Renee moved from Australia to the Pacific Islands for 6 years working with the remote communities there, and while she loved the lifestyle, the climate was even harsher on her skin, leaving her with damaged, inflamed skin from sun and wind exposure, and an infection from all the unhealed insect bites.
Seeking relief, Renee turned to the village healers who were inherently aware of the rejuvenating qualities of sea cucumber collagen, and used it topically to treat small wounds, infections and inflammation. Their traditional formulation brought Renee relief overnight, and she was overwhelmed by how much her face had changed in those 24 hours. "The redness and inflammation had completely vanished, and my appearance had been completely rejuvenated! My skin was glowing in a way it never had before." recounted Renee.
Renee was so excited about her experience with the villagers that she went off and dedicated the next few years to extensively researching the science behind the process, comparing independent studies with her real-life experiences and connecting the dots between the magic she had witnessed on her own skin.
Renee made the decision to return to her hometown in Australia, where she embarked on her mission to create a healthy skin-care product that actually worked for her, teaming up with a local leading cosmetic compounding laboratory that creates custom prescriptions for dermatologists and surgeons. Renee pushed herself to continue testing and prototyping her skin-care product with the dream that she could finally enjoy a life free from her skin issues, and the hope that she could help others who suffered like her. This would become the foundation for the launch of Bescher, a skincare brand that focuses on maintaining the highest efficacy levels while respecting the long-term goals of better overall skin health.
In 2019, Bescher launched their first product, the "Sea Cucumber Collagen Regeneration Serum" which sold out immediately, and then again 3 times after that. Overwhelmed by the support received from women struggling with skin health issues that had found solace in Bescher’s product, the team has expanded rapidly to meet demand. Since then, Bescher has gone on to launch 2 additional products while continuing to research with scientists more effective uses for sea cucumber collagen in the medical field.
"Before I discovered the benefits of sea cucumber collagen I had never imagined that I might create a skincare product for consumers," Renee explained. "It was sort of by accident that I came into skincare, but it's with a purpose. I always knew that I wanted to help others and maintain that ethos with Bescher today."
