Luís de Abreu Pestana

Born on the island of Madeira in 1945.

At the age of 19 he moved to South Africa in search of better life opportunities where he ended up marrying and forming a family, having always worked hard to provide his wife and children better life conditions.


1994 - He returned to Portugal in 1994 where he remained unemployed for over a year until an opportunity to start activity in cosmetics reselling and supplying arose.


With strong will and determination, Luís Abreu Pestana launched his career in 1995 -in his own house - having started to supply some beauticians.


This growth led, in 2002, to the creation of the company


Luís Abreu Pestana, Cosmética, Lda, where he invested as cosmetologist in the industrial zone of Caldas da Rainha. Its expansion drove Luís Abreu Pestana to invest in an exclusive brand, “Mossi Epil”. Luís Abreu Pestana, Lda's desire was to provide a good service always and work with honesty, which he managed to do until his last day on 10 June 2015.

The aim and interest of his son Gary Fernandes Pestana is to continue with this same work, in which his father and the rest of the family have worked hard and dedicated themselves to achieve.


Today supplying over 15.000 professionals

and with logistics warehouses over 2500 m2 - 750 pallets in stock.

All this was possible to achieve with the effort of LP Cosmética team but also undoubtedly with the full support, advice and requirements of its esteemed customers.

Luís Abreu Pestana, Cosmética, Lda, company takes this opportunity to thank all the professionals with whom it collaborates and highlights that it will always be a pleasure to be able to satisfy their needs. And in order to remain faithful to the professional market, Mossi Epil products are not available to the general public. Mossi Epil is an exclusive brand to professionals.

Since then there had been a positive response from the market and the company grew, which forced it to move to an 80 m2 store, close to the city centre of Caldas da Rainha.
