Pistachio Face Oil

With Phytomelatonin

Minimum commitment of 3 delivery cycles. 

A fast-absorbing oil designed to help reduce visible signs of ageing.

This face oil helps reduce visible signs of ageing, owing its power to 28% stabilised Vitamin E and our breakthrough ingredient, Phytomelatonin. Extracted from Italian Alpine plants in a patented process developed by our Scientific Director, Dr. Francesca Ferri, Phytomelatonin is at the heart of this performance-driven anti-ageing face oil. The plant version of human melatonin, Phytomelatonin is shown to rejuvenate the skin by boosting skin renewal; it is also a potent antioxidant that combats the ageing effect of free radicals. A revitalising blend of omega-rich oils, including Sicilian Pistachio Oil, replenishes, hydrates and protects. 

Suitable for all skin types, particularly mature, dry or dehydrated, and dermatologically proven safe for sensitive skin.

the result of the

work of a lifetime

From her student days in the 70s, Dr. Francesca Ferri has been fascinated by the hormone melatonin and in particular, its counterpart in plants: Phytomelatonin. Through the development of a patented technique to extract Phytomelatonin from plants in 2006; the publication of research in 2019 that showed Phytomelatonin can regulate skin ageing; and now with the launch of Phytomelatonin Rejuvenating Serum, Pistachio Face Oil and Pistachio Body Oil, Dr. Ferri’s fascination has grown into a lifelong quest to understand the role and benefits of Phytomelatonin.

performance proven in clinical trials

This face oil has been successfully tested on sensitive skin in a 96-hour occluded patch test. As a consequence it has been clinically approved for sensitive skin*.
*Independent dermatological tests undertaken on 25 participants with sensitive skin.

Phytomelatonin is the revolutionary new anti-aging active ingredient that you absolutely must try when you are over 30.

    Our Ingredients

    We focus on locally sourced Mediterranean ingredients, many of which come from our Organic Farm in Sicily. Each ingredient must smell and feel amazing but more importantly have clear benefits in use, without any compromise in skin kindness.


    Hormones can have a wide variety of profound effects on the skin. Oestrogen, progesterone and the androgens have for example been shown to regulate the condition of the skin via multiple mechanisms that can address skin degradation, wrinkles and dryness, and stimulate the development of new skin cells.

    Phytomelatonin has been shown to have very similar effects in laboratory trials.Phytomelatonin, Dr. Ferri's patented extract of Alpine Plant Melatonin, has been shown to more than triple the vitality of skin cells in the laboratory. It has also been shown to promote cellular changes that occur in the course of skin regeneration.

Research Shows Phytomelatonin Promotes Skin Vitality & COUNTERACTS SIGNS OF AGEING

A major finding in Dr. Ferri's work with her colleagues at the University of Calabria, published in 2019, was that Phytomelatonin can triple the vitality of skin cells in the laboratory. Beyond this increase in cell viability, the research team also observed that Phytomelatonin can promote cellular changes that occur in the course of skin regeneration.

“Gentleness and effectiveness are not opposites in a well formulated product.”
Dr. Francesca Ferri

“Through my time spent working with spas, I knew that I wanted to create experiential skincare. I noticed that many natural brands were using ‘essential oils’ to fragrance their products, and these often have unpredictable allergenic effects. The attempts by some natural brands to avoid this issue by being unperfumed didn’t make sense as fragrance is a key component of the spa experience, and is vital in stimulating emotions. So, I teamed up with Dr. Francesca Ferri to create lab-formulated, allergen-screened fragrances, ensuring our products combine outstanding fragrance with outstandingly low allergenic potential.”
