At Irene Forte Skincare, we’re passionate about provenance so that we can ensure unrivalled ingredient quality. Our Pistachio Oil comes from a reputable Sicilian supplier, and it contains omega 3, 6 & 9, which are the three most important omega fatty acids for the skin.
Omega fatty acids are a type of Essential Fatty Acid (EFA) which our bodies require for good health, but which we are unable to produce biologically. Topical application of omega fatty acids helps to: strengthen and smooth the skin’s surface; repair the skin barrier to improve moisture and elasticity; soothe irritated, sensitive and red skin; reduce UV-induced photo damage and signs of ageing; and nourish and protect skin against environmental damage moisture, regulate oil production and maintain elasticity.
As well as having its omega-rich benefits, Pistachio Oil is rich in Lutein and Vitamin E, which have antioxidant qualities, protecting the skin against free radicals and promoting cellular renewal.
OUR PISTACHIO COLLECTION
Our Pistachio Collection currently features Pistachio Face Mask and Pistachio Lip Balm, with more products to come later this year.
Pistachio Face Mask
NAMED ON BYRDIE’S LIST OF “THE 12 BEST SKIN-PLUMPING PRODUCTS OF 2023”
The celebrated beauty site has this to say about our five-star mask: ““For such a creamy, indulgent texture, this face mask from plant-based brand Irene Forte is surprisingly non-greasy. The mask sinks into skin to leave it looking plump, dewy and nourished in just 10 minutes, though also can be used as an intensive treatment to protect against dehydration on long-haul flights. Bonus: Its subtle and allergen-free fragrance evokes ‘luxury spa’ vibes.”
Excellent for most skin types, our creamy Pistachio Face Mask is clinically proven to hydrate the skin for over 12 hours, as well as immediately plump the skin. This sextuple award-winning formulation features scientifically verified ingredients such as Olive Oil and Rice Fractions, Aloe Leaf Juice, Vitamins C, E, and Pro-Vitamin B5 – in addition to Pumpkin Seed Oil.
Pistachio Lip Balm
NAMED ON SELF MAGAZINE’S LIST OF “BEST LIP BALMS”
Self magazine recently named our bestselling Pistachio Lip Balm to their list of “Best Hydrating Lip Balms.” Selected by dermatologists and reviewers, the publication noted that “this hydrating lip balm will help nourish, protect, and soften your lips. It's mixture of buttery Shea and Wild Mango is deliberately chosen for its soothing properties. It also includes Vitamin E and Olive, Pistachio, and Borage Seed Oils to moisturize and condition.”
The editors at Allure magazine agree, saying: “We wish more brands would take a hint from Irene Forte's Pistachio Lip Balm and include Pistachio Oil in their lip treatments, too. It's one of several oils in the formula that provide nourishing omega fatty acids - the others being Olive, Borage Seed and Sweet Almond Oils - and if that weren't enough, Shea and Mango butters offer a moisturizing barrier between your lips and icky environment damage.”
