About the ingredients:
Activated charcoal is negatively charged, extracting bacteria, toxins, chemicals and other impurities from deep within the epidermal tissues and drawing them to the surface of the skin for removal. Its antibacterial properties also help to clear problem skin.
Burdock root contains trace minerals potassium, phosphorous, chromium, cobalt, iron, magnesium, silicon, zinc and sodium, and boasts vitamins B complex and E. It increases circulation to the skin, helping to detoxify the epidermal tissues for the treatment of acne and other skin disorders.
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.
Lavender essential oil is a natural anti-inflammatory, so it helps reduce swelling and redness. It contains antibacterial, anti-fungal and antiviral properties. Lavender is also soothing to irritated skin.
Tea tree (Melaleuca) essential oil has antibacterial, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, antiviral and pain-relieving properties.
Lavender hydrosol contains antibacterial and antiseptic properties that cleanse the skin of the bacteria and microbes that lead to acne, while its powerful anti-inflammatory properties help to soothe and heal irritation and blemishes. Its natural astringent properties also help to balance the skin’s sebum production.
