News from M Picaut: “Dynamic duo with aloe vera and Swedish oat”

Use together or separately. The new duo Hydra creams with cooling aloe vera and soothing oat oil from Swedish farms in Skåne moisturize and strengthen your skin.
“These are two real superheroes for summer skin,” says Mette Picaut, founder and CEO of M Picaut Swedish Skincare.

A lighter cream that soothes, repairs, and moisturizes, and a richer version that gives the skin elasticity and builds up the protective barrier.

Hydra Pure Ultra Light Cream and Hydra Barrier Rich Cream are two “sister” creams that complement each other and provide the skin with moisture and calmness.

“This wonderful duo can be used together, as a day cream and a night cream, or separately. They are two lovely restorers that soothe, heal, and provide a lot of moisture. Perfect for dry and stressed skin, especially before the summer season,” says Mette Picaut, founder and CEO of M Picaut Swedish Skincare.

Aloe vera, Swedish-grown oats, are the main ingredients in both skincare products. Aloe vera provides a cooling and moisturizing feeling while also reducing irritation and sun-damaged skin. The nutrient-rich oat oil soothes and heals.

“Oat oil is like cotton for the skin!” says Mette Picaut, who has long dreamed of using oats in her skincare products.

“Our Swedish-grown oat oil is rich in lipids and essential fatty acids, which means it both moisturizes and restores the skin’s natural moisture balance. Additionally, it contains antioxidants, vitamin B and E, as well as minerals such as magnesium, iron, and zinc. It’s gold for anyone looking to reduce and prevent redness and irritation in the skin.”

The two new additions to the award-winning Swedish skincare series complement each other. Hydra Pure Ultra Light Cream is perfect for younger skin and those who want a lighter and soothing day cream during the summer season. For those with mature skin, or who want a complementary night cream, the richer variant Hydra Barrier Rich Cream also contains ceramides that help strengthen the skin’s barrier and lock in moisture effectively.

“Hydra Pure Ultra Light Cream is an ultra-light cream that works well in summer when the weather is warm, or for youthful skin all year round. It is wonderfully moisturizing and reduces skin redness. Hydra Barrier Rich Cream is a multifunctional cream suitable for everyone, both young and old. For mature skin, it works well as a day cream during the warmer seasons of the year, helping to give the skin a natural glow and smoothness,” says Mette Picaut.

The fact that both Hydra creams are being launched just before the summer season is no coincidence.

“Thanks to their high content of cooling aloe vera, they become a bit like a nice ‘after sun’ for the face. They also work perfectly for stressed or sensitive skin, reducing swelling and irritation, for example, after a day in the sun.”

Both Hydra creams are also in a slightly lower price range than M Picaut’s other range of products.

“Our skincare series should have something for all customers, regardless of budget,” says Mette. “This is our gift to everyone looking for passionate skincare at an affordable price. I hope our Hydra creams feel like a hug for the skin and provide everything it needs in terms of calmness, moisture, and nourishment! Of course, they are equally delightful to use all year round!”

Hydra Pure Ultra Light Cream (50 ml) SEK 499 and Hydra Barrier Rich Cream (50 ml) SEK 599 are available for purchase from authorized skincare therapists, spas, and selected online shops.

Supernatural Defence Rich Tinted Cream

News from M Picaut: “Sunscreen with magical finish”

Supernatural Defence Tinted Rich Cream with acacia flower and jojoba oil provides protection and radiance to the skin, while smoothing fine lines and evening out the skin tone.
– It’s a lightweight foundation, SPF 30, and moisturizer all in one! says Mette Picaut, founder and CEO of M Picaut Swedish Skincare.

The launch is just in time for the first warming rays of spring, a sun-safe innovation from the award-winning M Picaut Swedish Skincare. A sunscreen with SPF 30 that protects the skin from harmful UV rays while moisturizing and providing a lovely glow.

– Sunscreen is perhaps the product our customers have requested most over the years, and now it’s finally here! says Mette Picaut, founder and CEO of M Picaut Swedish Skincare.

Supernatural Defence Tinted Rich Cream brings out the best in the skin while protecting and strengthening it. The ability to have multiple functions in one product is fully in line with the Swedish skincare company’s “Less is more” principle. A few skincare products, packed with the finest ingredients, should have enough power to do a lot for the skin.

– The goal was to find a sunscreen product that also is suitable for mature skin. It’s really not easy to find, despite the gigantic selection on the shelves. Either the creams have too thin coverage or the wrong shade, which can make the skin look older than it is, says Mette Picaut.
Thanks to its color-correcting pigments, Supernatural Defence Tinted Rich Cream suits most skin tones. By massaging the sunscreen into the face, the pigments are finely distributed and blend into the skin.
– It provides a smooth and magically beautiful complexion that looks makeup-free and natural. This is truly a red carpet product that makes everyday life a little more delightful! says Mette Picaut.

Supernatural Defence Tinted Rich Cream is a rich cream with acacia flower and jojoba oil. Acacia flower moisturizes and soothes sensitive and irritated skin. Jojoba oil forms a protective barrier on the skin’s surface that helps sealing in moisture without clogging pores. Together, they provide elasticity, soothe, and repair the skin. Physical sunscreens like zinc oxide and titanium dioxide provide SPF 30 and protect against both UVA and UVB rays while being gentle on sensitive skin.

The result is a sunscreen that provides light coverage, evens out skin tone, and neutralizes redness.
– Our sunscreen brings out the best in the skin while magically concealing minor imperfections. Also, it’s perfect for mature skin because it really stays on without smearing off or settling into fine lines or wrinkles, says Mette Picaut.
– This is a real dream product!

Supernatural Defence Tinted Rich Cream (40 ml) is available for purchase at authorized skincare therapists, spas, and selected web shops. The recommended retail price is 599 SEK from retailers.

“This is an exciting addition and a natural extension of our skincare products,” says Mette Picaut.
As a child, she cultivated sage, rosemary, and marigold in her own herb garden to dry and make tea. As an adult studying Chinese medicine, her fascination with the beneficial power of herbs continued, addressing everything from digestion to hormones.
“Calmness usually starts in the stomach, according to Chinese medicine. I believe most of us are aware that issues like stress, digestive problems, and hormonal issues can manifest on our skin. The skin is our largest detox organ and a mirror of our internal well-being,” says Mette Picaut.

Ecoluxury Herbal Teas from M Picaut Swedish Skincare come in three blends of organic herbs, designed with a focus on providing well-being to both body and soul.
“Our teas are made from 100% organically certified herbs. As pure and fine as possible, and of course, without any strange additives,” says Mette Picaut.

Chamomile, anise, and fennel have calming effects and alleviate potential stomach cramps, while rosehip and blueberry provide an antioxidant boost. Spearmint is relaxing for muscles and the stomach, can alleviate skin irritations, and contributes to firm skin, while dandelion improves liver and intestinal function as well as purifies the body.

Precious Nights Relaxing Herbal Tea promotes a good beauty sleep. Among the ingredients are calming passionflower, as well as lemon balm and lavender for deeper sleep and relaxation. Tonka bean and fenugreek are believed to reduce stress and promote relaxation, while orange and passion fruit add a delightful fragrance and flavor.

Skin Beauty Boosting Herbal Tea is invigorating and provides the skin with extra glow through sea buckthorn, marigold, sage, and chamomile, which strengthen the skin’s collagen and elasticity. Other exciting ingredients include Sencha tea, one of the most popular green teas in Japan, enjoyed for an even skin tone and slowing down aging. White peony tea (Pai Mu Tan) is rich in antioxidants and makes the skin more resistant to environmental factors. It also has anti-inflammatory properties that can help sensitive or problematic skin. Rose petals are believed to help skin cells stay young and fresh.

Each tea blend comes in 100 grams of loose weight and is of such high quality that it can be brewed three times. One package is sufficient for about 50 cups of tea.
“Herbs enhance our resistance, provide more health, and calm our minds. I hope our teas will inspire people to live a more balanced life, from the inside out. Plus, they taste fantastic!” says Mette Picaut.

M Picaut – Galactic Glow CBD Moisturiser

How hard can it be to develop a CBD product in 2023?

Magazine Scandinavian Mind askes founder Mette Picaut on lessons learned launching her first CBD product in 2023…

How hard can it be to develop a CBD product in 2023? Trickier than you may think, just ask Mette Picaut.

Mette Picaut is the founder and CEO of skincare brand M Picaut, based on the Swedish west coast and launched in 2010.
— The most challenging was that, in the beginning, everyone is like petting you on your shoulder like a little kitten, saying how brave you are and that ’this is so great’, she says. Then, after some time, the kitten is not as cute anymore. That’s when the hard work starts, when you have to prove something. When I met men in my own age, they always wanted to help me, rescue me, saying that they could invest — ’because you won’t do this yourself’… That anger was really healthy. It made me start to study business school instead and work much harder than I was supposed to do, which was challenging. That middle part, when you’re just the brand but you can’t really afford to produce a lot of things that you want to do and you have to do everything yourself, is tough. And then, you come over that, and when I could employ my first skin therapist everything was starting to change. Today we have four of them, full time.
And a healthy business.
— Yeah. And when you have the language, I can always talk to a banker with a banker’s word. Now, it’s easier.
M Picaut just launched Galactic Glow CBD Moisturizer, inspired by the glow from The Milky Way and a product that was challenging to develop in more than way.
— I have a teenage daughter who’s using a lot of metallic and glittery products but since I’m 56, I can’t really use them. So, I decided to make something that was just like the skies and the stars; not too much, but still very beautiful and pleasant for the mature women, says Picaut. She continues:
— For the key ingredients, I love sea buckthorn — it’s like an ingredient with ingredients inside with so many active parts. That is one of the key actives. And Scandinavian people has a harsh environment. It’s very cold and it’s very warm inside. So I’m always looking for something that’s calms the skin and build the barrier and here, it’s the beta-glucans. Pentavitin is an ECOCERT product from France and when you put on the skin, you can’t wash it away. It’s lasting for 72 hours, binding with the carotenoids, which makes it very powerful as a moisturizer.
— I have MS, multiple sclerosis, so during the last years, I’ve tried a lot of ways to get better. I didn’t find CBD oils very beneficial. But when I looked at it for the skin, I thought it was interesting, so I decided to find a way that was as safe as possible. In Sweden, we’re very restrictive when it comes to Swedish Medical Products Agency, so I had a close contact with them. The lab in the Swedish factory actually also got a little scared when I mentioned CBD so I had to calm them as well, making them very involved in the project.
— It’s picked from the hemp oil and is both calming and antiinflammatory. This is also hopefully not something that is going to be forbidden. I always try to think very long term with everything I do. It’s like you’re building a house — you don’t want to put it down in a couple of years. So, I’m like an architect in the skincare industry, building something nice and long lasting.
What can you say about your contact with the authorities and how they look upon CBD as an ingredient?
— It made me think about the cowboys in the end of the 19th century that went to dig gold in the US. It’s like a wild, wild west. And it’s such a big topic for them, in Sweden and in the European Union, and they don’t know where to start. Since we belong to EU, the Swedish authorities are waiting for the EU to act, so therefore, it’s hard to get some limits (of the CBD dose, Ed’s note). So I made this in my Swedish way, which is the careful way — also because of my long term thinking. I then tried something that had a very high dose of CBD from some Danish company, and I got pimples. So, I suppose this is like everything else — a higher dose doesn’t have to be better for the skin.
— We have a client in Berlin and they were really happy to get the product. But another really nice one, in San Francisco, said no, so it depends on what part of the States that you’re in. It might be because they also have a web shop, so when it comes to export, it’s been a little shaky up and down, Picaut concludes.
If we look at 2024, what ingredients are you the most curious of?
— That’s a tricky one! I usually try not to be the first one with everything, because I was trained as a nurse and when you go to the university, you really want to see proof first. There’s so much marketing and stuff — I’m looking at what goes on and then I’m trying to try myself and read about it. It’s a bit of a slow process.
You look at hundreds of ingredients and then you end up with sea buckthorn.
— Exactly!

News from M Picaut: “Light-reflecting Minerals for Magical Glow”

A glamorous fusion between facial cream and illuminating makeup base. Galactic Glow CBD Moisturiser takes care of the skin and adds a subtle shimmer.
“The most beautiful thing is natural skin, and this product highlights just that!” says Mette Picaut, founder and CEO of M Picaut Swedish Skincare.

The trend of extra facial glow has taken the beauty world by storm. Now it’s here; an organic luxury version with light-reflecting minerals and nourishing CBD oil from the award-winning skincare series M Picaut Swedish Skincare.

“Our Galactic Glow CBD Moisturiser works as both a facial cream and highlighter, all in one. It appears as a lightly tinted day cream, but when applied, it melts into the skin, leaving a subtle shimmer that enhances your look. Also, it contains nourishing ingredients that take care of the skin,” says Mette Picaut.

The superberry sea buckthorn is packed with vitamin C, which revitalizes dull and tired skin, and the CBD oil hydrates and supports sensitive skin while protecting against oxidative stress and combating signs of aging. CBD is short for cannabidiol, an active compound extracted from hemp and used in Asia for thousands of years to alleviate skin conditions.

“I’ve been curious about CBD oil for a long time because I’ve heard so many positive things about it. It gives the skin a healthy glow, can heal various skin issues, and has rejuvenating properties. It fits perfectly into our concept of thoughtful eco-luxury,” says Mette Picaut.

The CBD oil used in Galactic Glow CBD Moisturiser is THC-free and extracted from organic hemp rich in omega fatty acids and vitamins. Together with carefully selected emollients, this creates a magical light-reflecting shimmer on the skin.

“The ‘less is more’ principle is important to me in everything we do. The fundamental idea was to offer a glamorous ‘glitter product’ that could serve as makeup and also as a CBD cream with nourishing properties. Galactic Glow CBD Moisturiser instantly revitalizes your face and provides a radiant glow without making the skin feel greasy,” says Mette Picaut.

Naming their latest heavenly skin care star “galaxy” felt natural, especially considering Mette’s fascination with space.
“It contains a multitude of tiny, exquisite pigments; it’s almost like a mini-galaxy with stardust that sparkles on the skin! I believe anyone looking to give their skin a little extra boost and glow during fall and winter will love it!”

Galactic Glow CBD Moisturiser

  • Gives the skin a radiant luminosity and glow.
  • Shields against oxidative stress, which combats signs of aging.
  • Abundant nourishing fatty acids make the skin softer and smoother.

  • Beta-glucans soothes skin irritation and redness. Calms sensitive skin.
  • Pentavitin deeply moisturises.
  • Hyaluronic acid (veg.) strengthens the skin and contributes to hydration, healing, and elasticity.

How to use – Mette’s tips:
“Dab a little on cheekbones, the tip of your nose, and eyelids, or try applying it all over your face! This is a product where I really want to encourage you to be creative and try something new. As a subtle touch on top of your makeup, on its own as an extra highlighter, or completely as a base cream, primer, or on top of your favorite cream. Only your imagination sets the limits!”

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!
