Brazilian Purple Clay- This beautiful clay earns its colour from its unique mineral composition including Magnesium, Titanium, Silica, Iron and Aluminum. Topical application of Magnesium is said to reduce the appearance of hormonal breakouts, Purple Clay is unusually high in Magnesium resulting in a clearer complexion with regular use.
Kaolin Clay- A very gentle clay, deep cleanses pores without causing dryness or irritation.
Cocoa Powder- Cocoa Powder is very high in Magnesium which is reputed to clear the complexion while rejuvenating the look of the skin. Cocoa is high in antioxidants and gives this mask a rich chocolate aroma.
Blackcurrant Extract- High in Anthocyanins and Quercetin, Blackcurrants can help to soothe inflammatory skin conditions. Blackcurrant Extract also has anti-microbial effects making it especially useful for reducing acne causing bacteria. With a Vitamin C content higher than oranges and more antioxidants than blueberries, these berries help your skin glow with vitality.
Bamboo Charcoal- Activated Bamboo Charcoal Powder captures toxins in its minuscule pores and eliminates them. Through the process of adsorption, harmful elements bind themselves to the powder and thereby prevent toxins from being reabsorbed into the skin. Activated Bamboo Charcoal Powder is known for its natural deep cleansing and exfoliating properties, which allow it to gently remove dead cells without dehydrating the skin. A gentle yet effective cleanser for all skin types – especially for skin that is prone to acne – it is ideal for blackhead reduction.
Rosehip Extract- Rosehip is known as “nature’s retinol” due to its high content of cell renewing Vitamin A & C. Rosehip is the fruit of the rose plant with the extract powder coming from the seeds and shells. Rosehip extract is very concentrated to provide the highest levels of Vitamin C as well as 32 other minerals and vitamins such as beta carotene, bioflavinoids, calcium, citrates, citric acid, malic acid, niacin, phosphorus and vitamins A, B1, B2, E & K.
Chamomile Extract- This unscented extract is high in Apigenin to soothe sensitivity and calm redness. In this mask it serves to reduce the pain and redness associate with breakouts.
White Willow Bark- White Willow is a deciduous tree native to Europe, western and central Asia. Its main active ingredient, Salicin, is what the pain killer acetylsalicylic acid and the acne treatment salicylic acid are derived from. In skincare, Salicin helps to reduce inflammation and bacteria while toning the skin and reducing excess sebum.
