INGREDIENTS AND SKIN CARE GOALS

Organic Burdock Root is an adaptogenic nightshade with cleansing and purifying properties. It offers anti-inflammatory & antioxidant benefits that can help fight acne.

Organic Nettle Leaf acts as natural astringent, and may help tighten and firm the skin, reduce redness, regulate natural sebum production, & treats acne, while
accelerating the skin renewal process.

Organic Lemongrass is anti-fungal in nature owing to citral, an organic compound that is found in its leaf. It can help prevent and reduce bacteria and infections, including acne, pimples and rashes.

Calendula is a tried and true, powerful herb. It is a vulnerary, which means it helps in wound repair.

Chamomile is another tried and true herb that also contains anti-inflammatory and antioxidant qualities to help the wound repair process, reduce redness and fight bacteria so skin is soothed.

Horsetail is high in bioavailable silicon, which helps tighten and firm skin while cleansing, minimizing the appearance of pores and providing anti-oxidant benefits.

Marshmallow Root is anti-inflammatory, soothing & hydrating.

Turmeric Root lends anti-inflammatory & skin lightening benefits as well.

Echinacea  has been shown in studies to help boost collagen production, provide hydration, brighten skin, boost skin’s natural moisturizing factors, and protect the outer layer, helping to lock in moisture. It may help reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and pores. Echinacea has also been shown to help with acne & eczema.

Myrrh Resin is naturally antiseptic & antioxidant. Applying myrrh to your skin may aid wound repair and fight microbes that can cause infections. It can also facilitate the fading of unwanted blemishes on the skin, soothes itchiness, and reduces symptoms of eczema among other skin ailments. It effectively cleans, moisturizes, and tightens the skin, thereby reducing and preventing further chapping, cracking, and sagging. It works as an astringent that strengthens and smooths the skin while also cleansing the pores.

Banana Peel powder packs a punch of nutrition. Potassium, B-vitamins, & Vitamin A provide antioxidant benefits, & fade acne scars and dark spots. Zinc fights acne causing germs while Vitamin C helps with the production of collagen & oil control. Vitamin E fights free radical damage to skin cells while lectin can help destroy bacteria that cause acne and pimples.

Seaweed, commonly known as knotted, knobbed or bladder wrack, or kelp - is one of many species which form part of the botanical order or algae. It is a rich source of vitamins including vitamins B12 (not found in land plants), vitamin E, amino acids, minerals, trace elements, and other nutrients. Seaweed powder makes for an effective cleansing and exfoliating agent. When applied to the skin, Seaweed act as a powerful purifier that draws out impurities while imparting benefits to the skin. It helps to slough off dead skin cells from the surface of the skin which gives the skin a healthy, revitalized, and glowing appearance. Seaweed contains fatty acids, which makes it suitable for use on irritated skin as it will help retain skin's moisture levels, and alleviate chapping, cracking and roughness caused by dryness of the skin. It can also be used on oily and acne-prone skin. Seaweed Powder is suitable for all skin types.

Organic Aloe Vera has antibacterial properties that can help control, reduce and prevent acne. Aloe's magnesium lactate content may also help alleviate stinging from acne, while its anthraquinone may help boost skin cell regeneration. The saponins and salicylic acid in Aloe may also help re-set the skin’s pH to normal levels, zap viral and bacterial activity all while minimizing pores.

Dead sea clay is a stronger clay that will go deeper, pulling out toxins and absorbing excess oil.

Glacial Oceanic Clay is formed by the movement of glaciers, it contains more than 60 unique minerals. When applied to the skin, the negative ions from the clay attract the impurities in the skin, ensuring a deep clean. It also helps to reduce pore size. Glacial Oceanic clay uses its osmotic strength to pull moisture up from deep inner tissues to hydrate the face. It cleans the skin but does not dehydrate it as other cleansing agents may do. It helps maintain a balanced skin pH with powerful buffering capability.

Do you use self care rituals as time for reflection?
I like to imagine letting go of more than just dirt and oil when I apply a clay mask. Is there something you can get clarity on or understand more deeply while the mask works?

USAGE

  • Prepare your space with a wooden spoon, small bowl & towel
  • Open bag without water running and spoon out your desired amount of mask mix into bowl
  • Close bag before running water
  • Do not scoop the mask mix out with wet fingers
  • Mix your mask with warm water to your desired consistency. Thinner mask will dry more quickly and give less time for ingredients to work.
  • You can also experiment with activators, including rose water, avocado oil, yogurt, milk & honey, and aloe juice or gel.
  • DO NOT allow the mask to dry on your face. When you start to feel it drying, you may either mist with water to extend the mask session, or rinse it off. Keeping a clay mask on after it has dried removes water and nutrients from the skin that you've just put it.
  • When you're ready to rinse, use warm water and gently soften the mask. Do not pull the skin. Run the water slowly. You may also use a hot damp washcloth to save water.
  • Once mask is fully rinsed, gently dry your face in a light tapping manner with your towel.
  • Allow your skin time to breathe before applying any other skin care.
  • Clay masks are detoxifying. We recommend no more than 2 times per week.
  • Clay masks may occasionally draw toxins to the surface, causing a blemish. This is normal, as long as it is not pervasive or occuring in large quantities. If so, take a break from clay masks for a couple weeks to allow your skin to rebalance.
