MALT & FIG Licorice & Marshmallow root Clay Mask is 100% natural using Black Brazillian clay, Licorice root, marshmallow root, Manuka and Hemp seed oil.

This is our only non Vegan product as we use Manuka.

Black Brazillian clay is used for Re-mineralising the skin and controlling oil production. Brazilian clays are said to have the highest mineral potential in the world thanks to the rich environmental conditions they have been form in. Brazil's rich soil diversity shows traces of volcanic ash and minerals dating back thousands of years and enriching the clay with minerals such as iron oxides, magnesium salts and calcium among others. Together with antioxidant rich licorice root and moisture rich marshmallow root we hope you will love this powerhouse clay mask. 

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.

Properties 

Aloe barbadensis (Aloe vera gel) - Used cosmetically, Aloe Vera Juice can hydrate, exfoliate, nourish, clarify, and revitalize the skin and hair. It helps protect the skin and hair before and after the harmful effects of UV radiation, and it works to repair the damage. It also helps to prevent and diminish the appearance of wrinkles, acne, psoriasis, and dermatitis. It moisturizes without leaving skin and hair with a greasy residue and it helps fade tans and stretch marks.

Licorice Root: has many benefits for the skin, which range from offering skin lightening to anti-inflammatory properties. It is said to help eczema, psoriasis, rosacea and hyperpigmentation. Licorice root extract contains nearly 300 compounds that have antiviral, anti-bacterial, and anti-inflammatory properties. It contains a compound known as glycyrrhizin, which is used to treat skin conditions like eczema and acne, as well as a rich source of antioxidants, it also offers skin lightening and anti-aging benefits. According to studies, licorice root extract, or Glycyrrhiza glabra extract, may help fight bacteria that infect the skin. Its antimicrobial properties help combat Staphylococcus aureus, a bacteria, which causes skin infections such as folliculitis, impetigo and cellulitis.

Marshmallow Root: The anti-inflammatory effect of marshmallow root may help relieve skin irritation caused by furunculosis, eczema, and dermatitis. A review from 2013 found that this herb stimulates certain cells that have anti-inflammatory activity. Marshmallow root has antibacterial activity that may make it effective in wound healing. The results of one 2015 study suggest that marshmallow root extract has the potential to treat gram-positive bacteria. It’s thought to speed up the healing time and reduce inflammation. It may also be used to enhance the appearance of skin that has been exposed to ultraviolet (UV) radiation. In other words, hyperpigmentation damage. 

Manuka: Manuka powder is a natural skin exfoliator, emollient (soothes) and humectant (retains moisture) with antiseptic qualities. It is an anti-irritant making it suitable for sensitive skin and baby care. The powder attracts and traps moisture working to strengthen skin structure and improve complexion. As a natural moisturizer it assists skin to stay hydrated making it appropriate for use in a variety of moisturizing products to combat aging. Manuka honey powder attracts dirt from the skins pores and dead skin cells from the surface of the skin making it a natural skin cleanser and softener. 

Hemp Seed Oil: Hemp oil is perfect for most skin types as it can moisturize without clogging your pores. It can even help to balance out oily skin, hydrating it and regulating the skin’s oil production. Dryness can also cause your skin to overproduce oil, which in turn, can stimulate acne. Hemp oil can prevent dry skin without clogging pores. This helps reduce acne that’s caused by excess oil. One of the omega-6 fatty acids that hemp oil contains is gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), which acts as a powerful anti-inflammatory while simultaneously encouraging skin growth and new cell generation. This can help to calm inflammation and irritation on the skin, including acne and some conditions like psoriasis, while keeping the skin nourished and moisturized.
