TIA Review by Marta:
I Pekar Moisturizer is an unusual experience. Now, don’t get me wrong, it is one that I have come to adore. But this is not your usual pot of face cream. It manages to combine luxury and handcrafted (typically an oxymoron, but not so in the case), smells divine and leaves my skin looking as if it has been on vacation.
For those who don’t know, Ildi Pekar is my long-time esthetician, and I Pekar is her debut skin care launch. I wrote more about Ildi in my review of the I Pekar Cleanser. In short, she has two goals when it comes to skin care — natural and effective anti-aging — and she doesn’t compromise on either.
This moisturizer is, I have found, versatile enough to be layered over a serum and effective enough to be used on its own. I have found that alone, it not only hydrates and conditions but has also been giving a helping hand to erasing wrinkles.
One of the ingredients that helps I Pekar’s Moisturizer pack an anti-aging punch is tripeptide-5. This peptide activates an epidermal growth factor (TGF-beta) that stimulates collagen in the skin. I have seen claims that in-vitro tests showed that tripeptide-5 has better collagen building capacity than topically applied TGF-beta — by 119%.
This wonderfully hydrating moisturizer is boosted by squalane and hyaluronic acid. My skin typically errs on the oily side, but it has been dry and out of sorts of late. I Pekar Moisturizer has been just the thing to firm, hydrate and soothe it. Calendula and aspen bark are anti-inflammatory and calming ingredients.
Ildi’s line is all about honey, which is a great healer and source of antioxidants. The new formula has been stabilized (without compromising the all-natural formula) and the honey longer separates and there is no need to shake or stir the pot.
Ildi has done a great job with her first products, and I am very proud of her. The formulas are as natural as it gets, and what’s more is they work. Not to mention, the products look terribly elegant in their miron glass bottles and jars (and I’m going to take a teensy bit of credit for being the one who suggested the miron glass — a clever glass that keeps out part of the light spectrum and helps preserve the products).
