The Alitura Mask Ingredients:
10% L-Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C): The most immediately absorbable form of vitamin C on the market, L-Ascorbic Acid, brightens the skin by radically reducing the effects of sun damage and spotting.
Freshwater Pearl Powder: Pearl powder, one of nature’s more subtle exfoliates, has the remarkable ability to establish an even skin tone and smooth out wrinkles. It is particularly useful for eradicating sun spots, reducing redness, and mitigating irritation.
6-hour Grass-fed Colostrum: Colostrum is a natural source of many vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and amino acids. Rich in growth factor IGF-1, 6 hour colostrum assists in the regeneration of skin cells.
American Ginseng: Known to eliminate blood impurities and facilitate skin cell oxygenation, Ginseng is a critical component of sustaining skin regeneration for a fresh, radiant complexion.
Rhassoul Clay: Direct from the Atlas Mountains of Morocco, this clay provides an unmatched detoxifying effect for facial skin. Recent studies have shown Rhassoul to be valuable in improving skin elasticity, unclogging pores, and removing harmful, excess surface oils.
Pyrophyllite Clay: This incomparable source of macro minerals, containing over 70% of the mineral silica which is vital in maintaining elasticity in our skin, along with trace minerals and angstrom elements has been used for centuries to instigate skin renewal and invigoration. Due to its easy dispersal in water this clay does not clump upon application, reducing the risk of irritation while cleansing.
Calcium Bentonite Clay (Green Desert Clay): Bentonite, a highly absorbent quarry-mined clay, develops a mild electric charge when saturated with liquid. This quality, particularly helpful in the extraction of acne-producing toxins and metals, is compounded by Bentonite’s potent astringent properties that work to shrink and tighten inflamed pores.
Kaolin Clay (China White Clay):Kaolin clay is commonly used in many different spa treatments to help purify, nourish, and heal different skin types. The use of kaolin clay originated from the Romans, Greeks and Chinese. It contains many essential and phytonutrients that are beneficial in the anti-aging process.
Organic Kelp Powder: Loaded with sodium alginate- a powerful topical cleanser, this nutrient dense antioxidant promotes a radiant complexion by penetrating pores and drawing out impurities.
USE: Your skin and schedule will determine the frequency with which you apply the mask. The "sweet spot" can be anywhere from 1 to 3 times per week. Allowing your skin cells time to recover and grow is important, so limit your usage to no more than every other day.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
Is your product for all skin types? Yes. Even those with very sensitive skin find that it has a calming and soothing effect. The Alitura Clay Mask is gentle and nourishing.
My face is red. Is this normal and how long does it last? Yes, it is completely normal. The mask is potent and very stimulating. Give your skin an hour to fully stabilize - this is a minimal recovery time compared to chemical peels, glycolic acid treatments, and micro-dermabrasians, which can sometimes be days.
How often should I use it? Your skin and schedule will determine the frequency with which you apply the mask. The "sweet spot" can be anywhere from 1 to 3 times per week. Allowing your skin cells time to recover and grow is important, so limit your usage to no more than every other day.
Is it okay if it gets in my hair? Absolutely - it is encouraged. The mask has many ingredients that are known to nourish the hair, and their circulation-promoting qualities are just as beneficial for hair follicles as skin. Try massaging it into your scalp and rinsing with a refreshing liquid soap from the Dr. Bronner's brand. Hair can take on a fuller appearance and increased manageability. You may never need shampoo again.
Can I add a personal touch to the scent with essential oils? You can, if you are judicious and sparing with what you add - the mask should generally not be altered in any way. During the mixing process, you can add 2 to 3 drops of any of the following oils: Lavender, Sweet Orange, Clary Sage, Sea Buckthorn, Grapefruit, Lemon, or Raspberry Seed.
My eyes are sensitive to Apple Cider Vinegar - can I use water? Yes. If water is the only emulsifier available, the mask will still work effectively, though it may not activate quite as powerfully without ACV. You can also try a 50/50 mix.
Can I use it on my body as well? Definitely. It was formulated to make skin look and feel great. Apply it topically wherever you want, especially on newly-formed scars, as it aids in the healing process and can greatly reduce scar tissue.
Can I eat it? Please do NOT attempt this. Even though 80% of the ingredients are food grade, 20% are not.
What can I use as a moisturizer afterwards? We LOVE and support "The Lotion" by HoneyGirl Organics, as it is made with pristine ingredients from bees that they raise themselves.
