Ideal for normal, oily and acne-prone skin concerns. MALT & FIGs detoxifying clay formulation contains premium French green clay said to draw out impurities, naturally remove dead skin cells and promote increased circulation to leave your skin radiant and glowing. 

Using green clay can help purify pores, allowing them to breathe. Besides cleaning pores, it also helps to tighten the skin by reducing large pores sizes. 

Green clay is also very detoxifying. The negatively charged ions in it attract and neutralize the positively charged ions that are in impurities, heavy metals, and toxins. The clay is activated once mixed with water or any other liquid. Your skin becomes healthier and fresher. 

Directions For Use

Wash your face with warm water and soap or a gentle cleanser. This gives the mask a clean start, allowing for better penetration. Open the Clay mask and apply the paste with your fingertips or brush, covering your face except the skin around your eyes. Allow the paste to dry. This is a good time to lie down and relax! Leave on for about 10 mins. Rinse the clay off with warm water. Follow with a rinse of cool water. If you like, finish with MALT & FIGs 100% Rosewater spray.

Cautions

This mask may tingle! This is nothing to worry about as it is simply penetrating your pores as it dries. If you have ever used AHA's it is a similar feeling. However, if your skin becomes sore or irritated discontinue use immediately!

For external use only. Keep away from childrenAvoid contact with eyes, inner ears, and sensitive areas. Please seek medical advice before using if pregnant, have diabetes or scheduled surgery within 2 weeks. Changing Skin routines can cause initial breakouts as the skin adjusts and impurities are drawn out.

If you find this mask is slightly drying on your skin, we recommend using our Pure 100% Rosewater Mist after your shower or bath.

German Chamomile Oil: German Chamomile is considered to be superior to Roman Chamomile as it contains higher levels of Chamazulene. German Chamomile has vasoconstrictor benefits. This means it can help reduce redness and flaring of the skin, which is particularly beneficial for Rosacea sufferers.

Matcha Powder - Antioxidants are your bodies defense against disease and aging. Antioxidants help prevent the damage caused by everyday exposure to sun, toxins or also just aging. The damage is what contributes to diseases like cancer. Matcha has an incredibly high antioxidant level. A study by Tufts University showed that it’s antioxidant (ORAC) rating was 1573 units compared to blueberry (93) and broccoli (31). Additionally; matcha contains a unique type of antioxidant class known as catechins – especially EGCgs. This particular catechin defends against free radicals which damage cell DNA.

Lavendulla angustifolia (lavender) oil - Lavender oil is naturally antibacterial, meaning that it kills acne-causing bacteria that might infiltrate your pores. This makes the purple flower perfect for preventing, calming, and healing painful acne breakouts. lavender oil is also used for balancing your skin’s moisture barrier, so that it isn’t too oily or too dry.

Hypericum perforatum (St John's wort) - Pharmacological research shows interesting pharmacological profiles, including antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anticancer, and antimicrobial activities. In addition, St John's wort stimulates growth and differentiation of keratinocytes, and is a photosensitizer which can be used for selective treatment of nonmelanoma skin cancer.
