Skin Soothing Mask

Item Description

Contains organic ground oatmeal, powdered buttermilk, organic marshmallow, German chamomile extract, cucumber extract, green tea extract, xanthan gum.

This mask is not an exfoliating mask; it was created for an aesthetician to use after administering chemical peels. Its ingredients are known for their skin soothing properties.

Oatmeal has a long tradition in being used to soothe skin ailments such as chicken pox or poison ivy. A 2008 study published in the "Archives of Dermatological Research" found that the phytocemicals and avenanthramides in oats reduced inflammation and scratching. Buttermilk contains lactic acid known for its ability to lighten hyper pigmented skin and to soften and soothe. Marshmallow is used as a poultice to reduce skin inflammation, burns, and infection. German (Blue) Chamomile has high concentrations of azulene, the active organic compound known for its anti-inflammatory and skin healing properties.The natural ascorbic acid and caffeic acid in cucumber extract act to prevent water retention in the skin and helps the skin heal from sunburn, inflammation, and eczema. Herbalists have used green tea for years to relieve skin itching and one preliminary study found some evidence that green tea may be helpful for rosacea. Lastly, xanthan gum is a plant based product often used in gluten free baking to increase viscosity.

Since this is a dry product, it will have an excellent shelf life. To use, mix one teaspoon of dry mask with one teaspoon of water or liquid of your choice. Aloe vera juice or milk will further increase the soothing properties of this mask. Add more water for a thinner mask or less for one more thick. Leave on as long as desired and rinse with warm water. You should be able to have at least 10 facials from this product.
