Get The Inside Scoop On The 05 Marine Algae Face Mask
Oh, face masks... how we love them! Even if we look like monsters when we’re covered in them, they sure feel good when they're off, don’t they? That's why we’re spotlighting our summer-loving, detoxifying 05 Marine Algae Repairing Mask -- the ideal post-beach solution that will turn you from sea monster to mermaid in no time.
This great-for-your-skin mask is super easy to apply, is travel-sized, and will always leave you feeling cleansed and rejuvenated. How about that, eh? Allow us to enlighten you about the gorgeous, all-organic ingredients inside this mask (and how they can benefit you)!
Oat Kernel Flour
A different type of oat than what you find hanging in your pantry, oat kernel flour is an FDA-approved “skin protectant” that’s known to alleviate a host of skin conditions including eczema, psoriasis, and dermatitis.
Our oat kernel flour is the ‘Peppi’ variety (sourced from select farmers in Finland) and includes the bran layer, which contains a high concentration of proteins and other powerful active ingredients. These exhibit anti-aging, anti-itch, and antioxidant properties, while cleansing, soothing, and protecting damaged skin. It also gives our mask a creamier, more gratifying consistency.
Aloe Leaf Powder
More than just for sunburned skin! The aloe plant has myriad benefits and use cases.
This amino acid and enzyme-rich powder, derived from the raw interior of the aloe leaf, nourishes and soothes the skin, leaving it more smooth and supple. When applied as a mask, this powder, packed with vitamins and minerals, will also lock in moisture, helping reduce the appearance of fine lines.
Arguably one of the biggest stars in the show of this face mask, chlorella powder is jam-packed with skin-absorbing nutrients. Each chlorella cell contains iron, calcium, potassium, magnesium, phosphorus, vitamins C, A, K, folic acid and a host of B vitamins.
In addition to its anti-aging and anti-inflammatory properties, chlorella actually surrounds the heavy metals picked up through exposure to air pollution making it possible to wash them away before they are absorbed into the bloodstream. Hence, the ability for our face mask to detoxify and renew the skin! A perfect face mask for sensitive skin or acne-prone skin as a result.
Kelp powder (seaweed) is an amazing reparative and detoxifier. The numerous nutrients in kelp are excellent for nourishing and toning the skin, and mineral salts in seaweed also help to reduce fine lines by locking moisture in. When used as a mask, kelp powder also unclogs pores and helps the skin to rid itself of toxins collected from air pollution and other environmental sources, leaving your face softer, smoother, cleaner and totally refreshed!
Last but far from least is spirulina. (If you don’t know about it, you’re going to love it!)
Spirulina (often referred to generically as blue-green algae) is widely used internally as a protein and antioxidant-rich superfood, and when used topically in a mask it acts like a superfood for your face. Its gamma linolenic acids (GLA’s) help with dry skin conditions (such as eczema), while its high level of chlorophyll makes it a great detoxifier.
Spirulina has tons of antioxidants as well, making it a great tool for repairing pollution and sun-damaged skin. A soother of rosacea! A fighter of acne! Just a couple more reasons skin care pros call spirulina super!
