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. Together they began to develop a formula that followed Sonia’s own less-is-more approach to beauty. Always in favour 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.

Pestle & Mortar is a name that reflects simplicity, natural solutions and a less-is-more philosophy. The grandfather of Sonia was the medicine man in his village in India and this tradition of natural healing has continued in her family for six generations. A pestle and mortar is an implement used since ancient times to grind medicines and food.  It is a simple yet highly effective and timeless, like the Pestle & Mortar products, which are formulated as stand-alone products so that the customer can use the entire range and benefit from unique actives in each product.
