About the ingredients:
Kelp is the largest and most nutrient rich of all seaweed species, and offers superior hydration as well as anti-inflammatory and anti-aging benefits. Rich in vitamins and trace minerals, it is a powerful firming, healing, exfoliating and strengthening agent that will help to smooth and even skin texture and tone.
Spirulina contains large concentrations of vitamins and minerals, including the B complex vitamins, minerals such as calcium and iron, and vital amino acids. It is also high in a specific and rare type of fatty acid called gamma linolenic acid. It helps ward off free radicals and eliminate toxins from the skin, increasing skin cell turnover and healing, and helping prevent candida bacteria overgrowth that can cause acne breakouts. It also helps boost skin tone and complexion.
Oatmeal contains 18 different amino acids and your skin can absorb these from a mask, making it an ideal ingredient to help heal blemishes and repair damaged skin. It also has skin-soothing properties and is hypoallergenic, so it can help to alleviate rashes and allergic reactions, as well as sunburn and other skin damage. Oatmeal is a humectant, which means that it helps your skin retain moisture and take on a glowing, dewy appearance.
Bentonite clay, also referred to as Montmorillonite, is one of the most effective and powerful healing clays. It comes from naturally occurring volcanic ash sediments here in the United States. This clay has been traditionally used to assist in mineral deficiencies and to help bind toxins making them more soluble. Bentonite is very unusual because once it becomes hydrated, the electrical and molecular components of the clay rapidly change. It is a swelling clay, so when it is combined with water it rapidly swells open like a highly porous sponge to soak up all the impurities and pull them from your skin.
Kaolin clay is a very fine and light clay that has natural absorbency properties. It is the mildest of all clays and is suitable for people with sensitive skin, helping to stimulate circulation to the skin while gently exfoliating and cleansing it. It does not draw oils from the skin, so it is great for dry skin types.
Lemon essential oil can improve your complexion and leave your skin soft and supple. It is a strong antiseptic, and only a small amount is used in this mask in order to avoid irritation or photosensitivity.
Chamomile hydrosol is anti-inflammatory, cooling and gentle. It is particularly soothing for itchy skin.
