News from M Picaut: “Golden cleansing balm with Amber och Cloudberry”
Golden Amber Probiotic Cleansing Balm is a cleansing balm and make-up remover that strengthens, calms and protects the skin.
– To cleanse our skin is an important part of our skin care. Everyone has the right to a balanced skin! says Mette Picaut, the founder and CEO of M Picaut Swedish Skincare.
The idea behind the latest product in the many-times-awarded skin care line M Picaut, was born thank to Mette Picaut’s teen age daughter.
– She wondered why we didn’t have a make-up remover. And when she wanted to buy a product from another big brand, I realized that we needed to develop our own product – and a better product than the ones out on the market! says Mette Picaut.
In the process of producing the Golden Amber Probiotic Cleansing Balm, her daughter Ella became both her greatest inspiration and harshest critic. The result is a make-up remover and cleansing balm that is gentle yet effective. As it removes dirt, waterproof mascara, sunscreen and other makeup products, it also has a calming effect on sensitive skin.
– This cleanser is very close to my heart. I hope other mothers and daughters also will love and appreciate it. And men too, of course! It’s a unisex product that suits anyone who wants to cleanse the skin in a new way, says Mette.
The less-is-more-principle is the philosophy behind the brand M Picaut; that fewer products, loaded with the finest ingredients, shall do more for the skin.
– Golden Amber Probiotic Cleansing Balm contains moisturizers, pre- and probiotics, vitamin-rich oils and fine extracts. All the thing that the skin loves – which has become our hallmark.
For the younger skin, a sebum-regulating complex helps to balance the skin and prevent acne problems. It also makes the skin feel less oily during the day. Bisabolol, which is extracted from Chamomile, is known for its soothing properties and provides balance, calmness and moisture. It also prevents inflammation and is especially suited for people with sensitive skin, acne, redness, rosacea and psoriasis.
For the more mature skin, the ingredients Sea Buckthorn and Cloudberry raise the vitamin C levels on the skin. Amber extract gives luster and vitality as well as strengthens and protects the skin. Bisabolol stimulates the skin’s collagen production, deeply moisturizes and minimizes surface dryness.
– Golden Amber Probiotic Cleansing Balm is a creamy golden balm, melting away all traces of make-up as the skin becomes soft and moisturized. The scent is honey-smooth and pleasant, says Mette Picaut.
She compares the sensation, to cleanse your face with Golden Amber Probiotic Cleansing Balm, to a spa experience.
This is a luxurious, soothing yet effective everyday cleanser for anyone who wants to freshen up the skin, wipe away impurities and at the same time get a lot of moisture and luster!

“Empowering Women” – Fair Trade Sheabutter
The Shea Butter in M Picaut’s products comes from a Ghanian women’s cooperative. The Fair Trade business empowers the women and give them a stabil income.
Shea Butter is natural and vegan with amazing and moisturizing nourishing properties. The butter comes from the African Shea nut. There, it has been used for thousands of years as lamp oil, in cooking and for skin care.
The Shea Butter in our products come from a Ghanian women’s cooperative. The business give these women increased confidence and a stable income. And with that comes better living conditions.
The process starts with the women collecting the nuts, sorting and finally washing them. It is important to throw away bad nuts to ensure a butter of the finest quality. The knowledge has been passed on for generations. After processing the nuts according to traditional methods, you get a nutritious and moisturizing butter with high levels of fatty acids, vitamins and antioxidants.
The antioxidants may help protect the body’s cells from free radicals.
Shea Butter may also help protect against UV-rays from the sun. Natural vitamins A and E are known to have an anti-aging effect on the skin. The production of collagen is stimulated, the skin is well nourished and moisturized to prevent fine lines and wrinkles.
Shea butter is quickly absorbed into the skin and very beneficial for dry skin. Also good for the pregnant belly and also on children’s sensitive skin.

News from M Picaut: “Serum with bakuchiol gives magical glow”
Gold Magician Firming Oil is an oil-based serum with the “natural retinol” bakuchiol and carotenoids that give the skin a deep, golden skin tone.
– The result is a firmer complexion with a magical glow, says Mette Picaut, founder and CEO of M Picaut Swedish Skincare.
Gold Magician Firming Oil is the new gold nugget from the acclaimed skin care series M Picaut. The name is a wink to the golden glow the skin gets thanks to Carotenoids from the carrot. The serum also contains Bakuchiol, often called “natural Retinol”, which gives an anti-aging effect and reduces wrinkles and fine lines.
– Bakuchiol is an incredibly exciting ingredient. This is the first time we use it in one of our products and it feels like a perfect piece of the puzzle in our skin care series, says Mette Picaut.
Bakuchiol is found naturally in various plants and has a documented anti-aging effect on the skin that is similar to that of synthetic Retinol, but without the side effects such as flaking, itching and irritation.
Together with a complex of natural Vitamin A from Rosehip, Sea Buckthorn and Apricot kernel, it evens out skin tone, reduces dark circles under the eyes and diminishes signs of aging. Carotenoids from Carrot seeds and Carrot root give the skin a natural deep, golden glow and protect against blue light from our screens which in the long run can make the skin more fragile.
– Carotenoids gets rid of dull skin tone and provide an anti-inflammatory effect that slows down skin aging and reduces sensitivity, says Mette Picaut.
She compares the development of the new serum to the art of “washing gold”, where the gold nuggets filled with ideas and knowledge over the years, have been filtered out.
– My philosophy “Less is more” has been with me since the very beginning, just over ten years ago; that rather fewer products should have the power to give, and do, a great lot for the skin. Gold Magician Firming Oil is proof of that.
The name “Gold Magician” comes from Mette’s fascination with Alchemy, something that also inspired the serum.
– In my 20’s, I read the book “The Alchemist” by Paolo Coelho and was captivated by the idea that everything can be evolved, both on the inside and the outside. A large part of my life has been about following and developing my intuition, something I also use in the development of our skin care products, says Mette Picaut.
Gold Magician Firming Oil is also a love tribute to the all the dermatologists who use M Picaut’s skin care series in their treatments.
– The sense of touch is incredibly important and healing, it is the dermatologists who create real magic. It is my mission to make sure the are equipped with the very finest products as tools!
Gold Magician Firming Oil (30 ml) is available for purchase from authorized dermatologists, spas and selected online shops. Recommended price is SEK 849 SEK at retailers.

Pearl Luminous Gentle PHA Serum – a new serum with mineral-rich pearl extract, soothing licorice root and vitamin C bomb Indian gooseberry from the acclaimed skin care brand M Picaut Swedish Skincare. The new Pearl Luminous Gentle PHA Serum is mild, yet effective, improves pigmentation and gives a fresh radiance.
– This is the serum I’ve dreamt of! says Mette Picaut, founder and CEO of M Picaut.
Pearl Luminous Gentle PHA Serum is the new star from M Picaut, this fall. Pearl extract, AHA and PHA acid and licorice root, among other things, evens out skin tone, deeply hydrates the skin and provides a gentle but long-term effective refreshment.

The advanced complex is truly magical when it comes to deeply hydrating the skin, says Mette Picaut.
– There has been a lack of an extra mild serum with AHA and PHA acid on the market.
Many of us have sensitive skin, it felt important to develop a serum that is as gentle as possible to our skin, yet gives that deep effect.
The PHA acid is mild and boosts the skin hydration, while the AHA acids provide an anti-aging effect and gentle exfoliation of the skin. The result is a serum that you can use both day and night and that evens out skin tone, gives new radiance and reduces fine lines and wrinkles. Pearl Luminous Gentle PHA Serum also contains betaglucans which make the skin more resistant while soothing redness and skin irritations.
– This is a wonderful multi serum in so many ways. On the one hand it is an anti-age serum that improves fine lines and wrinkles, on the other hand it improves skin texture. But not to forget, it also diminishes pigment spots and gives the skin radiance and elasticity.
The pearl extract is rich in antioxidants and has soothing properties while licorice root minimizes redness and brightens pigment spots. The Indian gooseberry is a real vitamin C bomb. A single berry contains eight times more vitamin C than an orange. Like the AHA and PHA acid, it improves pigmentation, evens out skin tone and has a firming effect.
– We have a clear goal for all our products; to work long-term, without disturbing the skin too much. It is always the best way for reaching best results, says Mette Picaut.
Well-thought-out eco-luxury that surprises and gives a long-term effect, yet kind to both people and environment, is the basic idea behind the entire M Picaut skin care series.

Two new facial moisturisers by Mette Picaut: “Probiotics and Gemstones will strengthen your skin”.
M Picaut Swedish Skincare is now launching two new moisturisers; Rose Quartz Supreme Probiotic Rich Cream and Amethyst Obsession Probiotic Balancing Cream. The moisturisers are based on Prebiotic and Probiotic that help maintain and strengthen the skin.
– From the very start, we have developed nourishing and anti inflammatory skincare. So this feels like a natural step in this direction, says Mette Picaut, founder of the successful Swedish brand.
Rose Quartz Supreme Probiotic Rich Cream is a repairing and strengthening cream with anti-age effect for normal, sensitive or unbalanced skin. Amethyst Obsession Probiotic Balancing Cream on the other hand is a calming and healing cream for oily, combination, normal or problem prone skin.
– Amethyst Obsession Probiotic Balancing Cream is a lighter cream that suits women and men of all ages, especially people with oily or combination skin. Rose Quartz Supreme Probiotic Rich Cream is made for the dryer skin type and contains two different sized molecules of Hyaluronic Acid. The smaller size is more effective on the deeper levels and slows down ageing. While the larger sized molecules has amazing moisturising properties, says Mete Picaut.
Both products contain Prebiotic; the important nourishment for good bacteria, and Probiotic; bacteria that maintain and strengthens the skin’s own natural micro flora in which leads to a healthier and more resilient skin.
– I have been paying attention to these good bacteria for a few years now, since they started to pop up in both anti inflammatory food and skin care. Rose Quartz Supreme Probiotic Rich Cream and Amethyst Obsession Probiotic Balancing Cream both contain high levels of Prebiotics that nourish the good bacteria. This leads to a stronger and better protective barrier by increasing the skin’s own oxygen intake for a more firm and healthy skin.
Another main ingredient in the two newly released products is Squalene which is an excellent hydrant and is found naturally in our skin. Squalene is quickly absorbed, has very high emollient and improves elasticity. It is also considered as a potent antioxidant as it naturally protects against UV-rays and fights pigmentation.
– The combination of Pre- and Probiotic together with high levels of Squalene, hydra bomb complex Pentavitine and different sized Hyaluronic Acids is simply an amazing formula. And in the decomposition of Probiotic there are more benefits for the skin; new substances with great properties such as Hyaluronic Acid, Peptides and Vitamins that all improve skin’s own glow, hydration levels and production of collagen, says Mette Picaut.
Gemstones are other very exiting ingredients in our two products. In Rose Quartz Supreme Probiotic Rich Cream there Rose Quartz to calm and balance and in Amethyst Obsession Probiotic Balancing Cream you have the purple Amethyst in combination with the Probiotic formula to reduce inflammation and redness.
Our skincare is known to build and strengthen the skin, especially sensitive skin. From the very start we have always looked for gentle yet effective innovative Bio Tech ingredients.
With Rose Quartz Supreme Probiotic Rich Cream and Amethyst Obsession Probiotic Balancing Cream we hope that we will able to add more value! says Mette Picaut.

The Swedish skincare brand M Picaut won again, for the fourth year in a row, at Swedens most prestigious beauty awards, Swedish Beauty Awards. The body peel mask Amazing Effortless Body Peel Mask stood as a winner of the Body Product of the Year 2019.

Amazing Effortless Body Peel Mask won the category Body Product of the Year at Swedens most important beauty award, Swedish Beauty Awards 2019. This is the fourth year in a row that we find M Picaut’s organic skincare products as a winner and this was the statement of the jury:
”A long-lasting body cleanser in a tube that will transform any skin from dry croc inte silky smooth and moisturised – in a snap.”
– This sure is the Product of the Year. We’ve received amazing feed-back both from customers and skin therapists. Nothing beats a great skincare product that is both effective and gentle, says Mette Picaut, founder of the successful organic skincare line.
The idea behind Amazing Effortless Body Peel Mask is to design a product that works as a facial treatment, but for the body. This is why it has both an exfoliating properties as well as the replenishing qualities of a beauty mask.
The Less-is-More concept is something that the Swedish skincare brand has been focusing on since the very beginning.
– You shouldn’t need unnecessary products on your bathroom shelves. To use fewer products that are easily combined makes sense today. A body mask and body exfoliator in one is great both for your skin and the environment.
Amazing Effortless Body Peel Mask contains red grape seeds and natural salicylic acid from the willow bark, with double exfoliating effect, aloe vera with soothing, calming and healing properties, lemon myrtle with strong anti-bacterial qualities and M Picaut’s signature ingredient sea buckthorn, a real vitamin C and antioxidant booster.
The body exfoliator is a deep cleanser and purifies the pores. It does wonders to everything from dry elbows to dry legs and leaves the skin silky smooth. This is just like a SPA-treatment, except you can easily do i yourself at home, says Mette Picaut.
Amazing Effortless Body Peel Mask is the fourth product in M Picaut’s line of body products and the last step of a perfect face treatment for the whole body.
Combined with the body oil Goodness Glow All Over Dry Oil, winner of the Body Product of the Year at the Swedish Beauty Awards 2018, and the body lotion Crème de la Crème Body Lotion it becomes the perfect ritual for your body and soul!

M Picaut – winner of Body Product of the Year
The new body exfoliator Amazing Effortless Body Peel Mask won Body Product of the Year at the 2019 Daisy Beauty Awards.

”Who doesn’t want their body skincare products to give them a ”new you”? Presenting the shower product that works like a reset-button for your skin. A natural best friend in the bathroom for when you want to step out of the shower like a new person.” Those were the words of the 65 beauty-bloggers making up the jury of the Daisy Beauty Awards 2019.
– It is truly amazing to receive this prize and a double honour when it comes from a jury that consists of Swedens most recognised beauty elite. If anyone knows beauty products, it’s this jury, says Mette Picaut.
The idea behind Amazing Effortless Body Peel Mask is that it should be like a facial treatment for the whole body. This is why it both exfoliates and pampers.
One of the ingredients is red grape seed which is a loving tribute to Mette’s husband Eric Picaut, Sales Manager at the head office of M Picaut in Gothenburg.
– Because Eric is from France, using grape seed extract is nod to his heritage. And as far as I know, we are the first Swedish skincare brand that uses this ingredient. This is of course part of our vision. To use the very best from Mother Nature and to offer cutting edge products, says Mette Picaut.
Grape seeds are rich in anti-oxidants, for example vitamin C with it’s anti-ageing properties and vitamin E which protects the skin from free radicals. The body peel mask also contains natural salicylic acid from willow which gently yet effectively removes old skin cells and boosts cellular rejuvenation. Willow bark has deep cleansing anti-inflammatory properties. Perfect for problem prone skin like keratosis polaris (bumpy skin on arms) and acne. It also strengthens the skin’s top barrier layer and retains moisture. Like all other M Picaut products the ingredients are organic and produced locally in Sweden.
– This award really shows us all that the green choice is just as effective as the ”usual stuff” on the shelves, or maybe even more so. Ecoluxury gives results, strengthens the barrier of the skin and is full of the very best nourishment, says Mette Picaut.
– I truly believe that this is the future of skincare, locally produced ecoluxury that gives more than expected. I have lots of new ideas and this award encourages me to continue.
New position for Mr Picaut
It was love at first sight. Outside a metro station in Tokyo. Two children and 26 years later Mette’s and Eric’s love story continues. Now also a couple at work. This fall Eric started as a Sales Manager at the M Picaut office in Gothenburg.
Hi Eric. Tell us more about your new position.
– As a Sales Manager my roll will be to develop our organisation especially in sales and services. Take it to a new level.
What is your background?
– I’m originally from Saint Malo/Bretagne, north west of France and I have been working many years as an model all over the world, Paris, Milano and Tokyo. It was during a period in Japan I met Mette. She was in modelling business too so for a long time we travelled and worked together. I have always had an interest in fashion and I have been Store Manager at Henry Lloyd in Gothenburg and managed two stores for Tiger of Sweden. If I were to describe myself I would say that I am a social person and a driven problem solver that love working with service!
You’ve been with Mette since the very start of the M Picaut carrier. Has it been a lot of talks about skincare at home?
–Yes, Mette has always tried all the products on me and the children! I have also had a say when it comes to the scents. something that I’m good at and really enjoy. I have always been fascinated with Mettes ambitions and I am very proud and impressed of her hard work. She is so passionate and puts a lot of hours into creating the products. We have really been looking forward to working together and now is the time to make a dream come true. This is a new adventure for us both and to work together to take the company a step further.
M Picaut’s products are for both men and women. Why is mens’ skincare important to you?
– At the end of the day, it all comes down to taking care of yourself. No matter if you are a man or a woman. Just as much as I like dressing nicely, I like taking care of my skin. It makes me feel fresh. To have a workout, take a shower and use great skincare products for both body and face, put on a nice suit and go out and cease the day.All the scents in the M Picaut skincare line are unisex and the products are very effective for men as well as women. I can really recommend men to use these products.
What does your skincare routine look like?
– After a gym session I use Happy Sparkling Body Wash in the shower. For the face I use a few drops of Hydra Miracle Serum and some moisturiser, for exemple Skin Detox Moisturiser. In the evening I use the facial cleanser Glorious Green Foaming Cleanser, a great foaming cleanser with a wonderful scent and makes your skin feel fresh and clean after a long day of work. After that I use the ”Broccoli-Cream”, Skin Detox Moisturiser and Precious Eye Cream which is quickly absorbed into the skin.
Which is your favourite product?
– Actually… I have to pick two. Glorious Green Foaming Cleanser has such a great lemon scent and makes you feel fresh and clean, but Hydra Miracle Serum is also a product that I always keep in my gym bag.
