Why choose Pestle & Mortar?
Pestle & Mortar is a skin care brand that’s driven by a belief in clean beauty. It takes ingredients from nature and marries them with technological actives at the most beneficial concentrations.
Formulations are intentionally simple and streamlined, with a focus on high-performance active ingredients blended with natural extracts and nothing harmful.
Pestle & Mortar focuses on delivering results without compromise.
All its products are carefully created to suit all skin types. The formulations focus on getting the perfect synergy of active ingredients, the right concentrations, the correct pH and a lovely texture and feel.
The brand promises to help you achieve healthy and hydrated skin, so that it looks and functions at its best. All without any of the questionable ingredients found in so many products claiming to be green.
Pestle & Mortar’s philosophy extends to its packaging. It maintains that packaging design is equally as important as the formulations. The packaging protects the high-quality active ingredients so that they can deliver the standard of nature. Even the Renew Gel Cleanser comes in an airless pump dispenser, so not only are the actives being preserved but you’re getting just the right amount dispensed every time.
The brand is even a favourite of global skin care expert Caroline Hirons, who has put the Pestle & Mortar NMF Latic Acid toner on her list of all-time best skin acids. She’s even gone so far as to say she loves the Pestle & Mortar Recover Eye Cream and finds the Superstar Retinol Night Oil to be the best she’s used outside of a prescription. How impressive is that!
As you would expect, Pestle & Mortar products are cruelty free and vegan.
Pestle & Mortar is definitely a brand on the rise. Expect it to go from great to even greater with its exciting new product launches. We’re delighted to bring Pestle & Mortar to you so that you can experience its beautiful formulations and gorgeous packaging.
At Skin Clinica, we intentionally choose products that have proven actives and deliver results, while also respecting the health of the skin.
NMF Lactic Acid Toner
You’ve probably heard that Glycolic Acid and Lactic Acid are royalty in the world of exfoliants. They deliver an impressive list of anti-ageing benefits, including improving dullness, pigmentation, enlarged pores and acne, as well as smoothing fine lines and wrinkles by stimulating collagen. Who doesn’t want some of that!
It’s important to know that not all exfoliating acids are made equal. The Free Acid Value and pH of the formulation are what determines their effectiveness. Most brands don’t declare these all-important figures.
The Pestle & Mortar NMF Lactic Acid Toner has a Free Acid Value of 5.34%, the amount actually absorbed into the skin, and a pH of 3.8. This puts it in the ideal exfoliating range. And it’s even gentle enough for more sensitive skin types.
Lactic Acid can do everything that Glycolic Acid can do, only more gently. But there are a few more tricks contained in this molecule. Lactic Acid can improve hydration, strengthen the skin barrier and enhance its microbiome. It even has some antimicrobial properties.
Natural Moisturising Factors are naturally occurring elements in the outer layer of the skin that help keep external aggressors out and much-needed moisture in.
This formulation also includes Niacinamide, Indian Gooseberry Extract and Black Tea Leaf Extract. Niacinamide is a hero ingredient that every skin will love for its many scientifically proven skin benefits. Indian Gooseberry Extract is a soothing antioxidant that scavenges harmful molecules before they cause harm to the skin. It also gives your skin a good dose of bioavailable Vitamin C. And Black Tea Leaf Extract is a super antioxidant that fights free radical damage while also helping reduce puffiness, firm the skin and improve hydration.
Say yes to brighter, clearer, smoother and more hydrated skin with Pestle & Mortar NMF Lactic Acid Solution. Now you really don’t have to trade effectiveness for natural ingredients.
Recover Ultimate Eye Cream
The name of the Pestle & Mortar Recover Ultimate Eye Cream says it all. This eye cream is an all-in-one that tackles all the main eye concerns.
This is the perfect go-to eye cream that can be applied day or night to recapture that more youthful look.
You’ll find Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5, an advanced peptide that boosts collagen production and smooths skin texture. Additionally, there is Coffee Seed Extract to reduce puffiness and improve dark circles. Sodium Hyaluronate also has been added to deeply hydrate and plump the skin. Rounding out this formula is a nourishing blend of other skin-compatible ingredients that protect the delicate skin around the eyes and lock in moisture.
This eye cream strikes the perfect balance between being rich enough to tackle dryness but light enough to absorb easily. It leaves the eye area soft, smooth and soothed. Designed to deliver fast visible results.
The Recover Ultimate Eye Cream comes in an airless pump dispenser and a beautifully chic cylindrical outer box.
Erase & Renew Double Cleansing System
The Pestle & Mortar Erase & Renew Double Cleansing System provides the perfect introduction to the Pestle & Mortar’s brand and its exceptional products.
Start by melting away the day’s makeup and sunscreen with the Erase Cleansing Balm. You’ll be immediately relaxed by the uplifting natural scent of rose geranium. Follow with the Renew Illuminating Lightweight Gel Cleanser that is remarkably gentle and hydrating. This is a non-foaming cleanser that leaves the skin incredibly soft and smooth. And it comes in an airless pump container that lets you dispense just the right amount.
Both cleansers contain only the most natural ingredients to gently clean and nourish, leaving nothing but cleansed and hydrated skin.
Helping ensure the best removal of your cleansing balm and illuminating cleansing gel is a gorgeous double-sided cotton face cloth. This luxurious face cloth has an extra-soft cut pile on one side and a muslin exfoliating cloth on the other side. Now you can easily cleanse and refine in one.
This kit comes in Pestle & Mortar’s trademark presentation cylinder that makes it a lovely gift – even if to yourself!
This brand is a favourite of global skin care expert Caroline Hirons.
She has put the Pestle & Mortar NMF Latic Acid toner on her list of all-time best skin acids.
Caroline has even gone so far as to say she loves the Pestle & Mortar Recover Eye Cream.
And she has said the Superstar Retinol Night Oil is the best she’s used outside of a prescription-strength retinoid.
How impressive is that from the woman who has tried just about every skin care product worth trying!
