Irene Forte: discover the Italian luxury skincare brand

Pistachio Lip Balm

May 2021

"Dr Ferri has run a number of studies illustrating that the effectiveness of many natural active ingredients actually diminishes when it goes beyond a certain percentage in a formula. So, we believe in putting the precise amount to deliver the most effective benefits while avoiding harmful side effects, and don’t believe in putting in a higher percentage just for marketing purposes. We advocate the concept of psico-cosmesi, meaning that what we put on our skin benefits us emotionally and thus physically. The organoleptic properties of a product are vital to achieve this." - Irene Forte
