Why Pestle & Mortar NMF Lactic Acid Toner?

Pestle & Mortar NMF Lactic Acid Toner can restore radiance and glow without causing irritation.

When it comes to skin acids, it’s not just about the percentage of acid used.  What’s really important is the free acid value and the pH, and most brands don’t tell you this.

This toner has been developed to have a free acid value of 5.34% and a pH of 3.8.

The free acid value is the percentage of the acid that actually absorbs into the skin. A free acid value of at least 4% is needed for noticeable cell turnover. And the low pH preserves the strength of Lactic Acid for best results.

Pestle & Mortar NMF Lactic Acid Toner review

My skin feels fresh and bright. Bought this toner when I saw Caroline Hirons raving about it on her Instagram and it didn’t disappoint! I have sensitive skin and find that most acid toners break me out. This is definitely the best toner I’ve used. My skin feels fresh and bright. Great product for sensitive skin.


How to use

Apply Pestle & Mortar NMF Lactic Acid Toner to a cotton pad and sweep over cleansed skin on the face and neck, avoiding the eye area.

Use morning or evening according to skin’s tolerance. If new to skin acids, only use 1-2 times a week to start and work up to the right frequency for your skin.

Always use a high SPF broad-spectrum sunscreen during the day.
