**A less is more philosophy from Irish skincare brand **
Dubai, United Arab Emirates - September 16, 2019: Pestle & Mortar is an Irish skincare brand which has exploded onto the global skincare market in recent months. The brand founder, Sonia Deasy, entrepreneur and mother-of-five, cites the following as her brand philosophy, her motivations and the inspiration behind her product formulations.
“Fuelled by a desire to simplify multi-step skincare routines and frustrated by the lack of affordable skincare solutions which produced the desired results, I decided to create my own. My immediate family ancestry of six generations of Indian medicine was instrumental in creating shaping my vision for Pestle & Mortar. I fused nature with science to create a range of skincare products that provide simple solutions for beautiful skin.
My formulation mantra is ‘simple, natural, effective and suitable for all’. I believe that daily skincare routines should be simple and provide cumulative benefits with consistent use. The Pestle & Mortar less-is-more philosophy extends throughout every aspect of the brand, from product formulation through to packaging and dispensing mechanisms.”
