Healing, hydrating, firming mask formulated with an invigorating powerhouse blend of active ingredients, finely milled herbs and green algae. Neem regenerates healthy skin cells while cooling inflammatory conditions (such as rosacea) and healing acne of all types without drying. Organically grown spirulina and chlorella algae clean pores, detox, and nourish the skin with a wide range of phytonutrients. From the first application, you can expect ultra-clean, breathing skin that is moisturized and energized, yet with its natural protective barrier preserved.

This product is good for:
Measure out 1 teaspoon of the powder and mix with just enough water to achieve a workable, moist paste. Apply onto freshly washed, towel-dried skin and leave on for 30 minutes. Mist with a hydrosol or face toner while wearing the mask. Remove with cotton rounds or a wetted face towel.
For an even more nurturing mask, add 1 to 4 drops of a facial oil or oil-based serum to the paste, such as Magical Babassu Face Oil or Ruby Face Oil. Replace the water with Cistus and Moonlight Face Mist for yet another variation and an interesting scent twist.
Please note: Neem is a powerful plant that can send out a message when its healing has been accomplished and it is time to take a break from it: either you may start forgetting to use the mask, or no longer feel drawn to its powers, or, if you overlook the subtle messages and continue using neem religiously, you may even develop a mild rash or itching. If neem tells you that it is time to take a break, heed its advice and switch to a different mask for a while. (This phenomenon happened to Ava's husband on one occasion, and then several years later she read about exactly the same chain of events in a renowned book on the science of aromatherapy, in an anecdote about a different strong antimicrobial, bay laurel.)

Aloe leaves (containing naturally active skin-damage-correcting vitamin C), gently dried and ground into a fine powder, are this mask's moisturizing base. The aloe particles are like miniature sponges, waiting to become transformed by water. What happens when you give these cactus sponges water? They re-hydrate, creating waterlogged bits that deliver moisture and gentle scrubbing action for a highly effective cleansing that hydrates with the water and the plant's juices. The intelligence of a desert plant is to hold on to water; in your skin cells, this results in plumped-up, thoroughly moisturized skin.
The Indian neem tree has been revered by Ayurveda for thousands of years and has often been called for to heal and beautify the skin. It is strongly antimicrobial, healing for acne of all types (yet it isn't drying), and its cooling nature is of great help with inflammatory conditions (apparent as redness on the face) such as rosacea. Neem regenerates healthy skin cells and encourages a healthy skin coloring.
Our organically grown spirulina and chlorella algae clean the pores, detox, and nourish the skin with their wide range of phytonutrients, from amino acids, B vitamins, and beta-carotene, to vitamin K. Green algae have a firming, cooling, and strengthening effect.
The scent and its aromatherapy benefits: bitter and green, powerfully "re-awakening" to the senses. Allows one to shake off sluggishness of body or spirit, drowsiness, and a spacey feeling. Promotes mental sharpness and focus. (Smell the prepared paste, not the powder.)
