Formulated with Hydra-M a multi-mineral chrono energizing blend of zinc, copper and magnesium.
This mineral rich mask works synergistically to improve skin vitality and also aid as a booster for other active ingredients. The triple action, anti-free radical agents in Hydra-M aid in improving skin texture while offering a shield against oxidative stress and pollution.
- Vitality: chrono-energizing by boosting cellular respiration, ATP production and epidermis turnover.
- Prevention: safeguards dermis (fibroblasts and extra cellular matrix) from glycation process
- Protection: acts as an oxidation stress shield by blocking free radicals and activates inter-cellular communication
- Benefits: Aids in smoothing deep wrinkles and skin texture. Supports skin at any age.
- More: Boosts skin benefits of other active ingredients. This means that if you further customize your face mask with other actives, vitamins or clays the skin will be prepped to receive their benefits.
Adding Oils: You can easily mix a variety of oils such as Coconut, Jojoba, Avocado, Hemp, Argan and more in to our Hydra-M Advanced Mineral Face Mask. Just add anywhere from 0.1% up to 10%; just remember, the more oil you add the greasier and runnier your mask will become. Adding a standard of 1% oils will minimally affect the consistency while still providing added benefits to the skin.
Adding Clays: This base already contains a high percentage of Kaolin Clay but we understand that you may choose to make your product unique by adding more. Add anywhere from 1% up to 20% of additional clays such as Bentonite Clay, Rose Clay, Activated Charcoal or Green Clay; just remember, the more clay you add, the harder and drier your mask will become. Always make a small sample first and make sure you record exact percentages of your additions so you can easily duplicate your formula once you achieve the consistency you like.
The possibilities with our Hydra-M Advanced Mineral Face Mask are endless with the addition of a multitude of beneficial additions, so don’t be afraid to experiment with it. Again, when experimenting with different additives and combinations, always work in small sample batches. Should your mask become too liquid, you can add more clay to thicken and dry it out. Alternatively, if you add too much additional clay and your mask becomes too dry, you can add liquid additives and/or oils or extracts to turn it a little more liquid. You can mix the base and the additives in a bowl using a spatula or in a kitchen mixer. Always remember to start on slow speed.
Made with Kaolin Clay
Kaolin is a natural clay full of nutrients that leaves skin moisturized with a light, natural cooling sensation. We chose Kaolin because it is beneficial for most skin types since it does not draw oil from the skin. It naturally stimulates circulation while cleansing, and can be used for dry skin without negative effects. In developing this mask we consulted with a number of skin care experts, including registered aestheticians and cosmetic chemists, and the majority agree on one thing. A clay face mask should never be allowed to fully dry on your skin. The main benefit of a clay mask is in the first phase (or damp phase) where the nutrients are absorbed by the skin. In the second phase it will cool slightly, stimulating blood flow and prompting skin to contract. Where most masks go wrong is by drying too quickly, thus drawing out too much moisture.This drying sensation is often mistaken for a "tightening and lifting effect" but in reality it will leave skin dehydrated, irritated and itchy.
