As a busy mother of five, Sonia Deasy needed a simple, effective skincare routine she could count on. And she wasn’t alone. While working alongside her husband, acclaimed international photographer Padraic Deasy, she saw firsthand how dry, dull and patchy his subjects’ skin looked up close. She knew there had to be a better solution. So she began to research one herself, working closely with her sister – who just so happened to hold a degree in biochemistry.
At ND WORLD, we tried the Pure Hyaluronic Serum, day and night, and noticed a difference in skin tightness and structure - it can be a bit harsh on sensitive skin, so we were particularly keen on the Retinol Night oil, that worked really well, with noticeable signs in the morning, of further glow and a revitalised skin.
Prestige & Mortar began to develop a formula that followed Sonia’s own less-is-more approach to beauty. Always in favor of a natural look over layers of makeup, Sonia was determined to create a line of no-fuss skincare – free of harsh chemicals and worrisome ingredients – that left women looking and feeling their best.
''We’re a family-made and run business with a word-of-mouth following – based purely on the results: hydrated and healthy looking skin. And our ingredients matter. All of our products pass the famously strict European skincare standards, so you can trust that what you’re putting on your body is pure, safe and highly effective. We have adopted a game-changing method of formulating, where all Pestle & Mortar products are formulated as stand-alone products. By doing this our formulations end up being individual and easy for our customers to use our entire range. You won’t find Hyaluronic Acid in any of our other products as there is ample amount of HA active in our serum, so we concentrate on unique actives for every product making sure your skin is benefiting from an abundance of goodness.''
