Firming, acne-reducing soft powder mask. This healing, hydrating, and invigorating powerhouse blend of just active ingredients: finely milled herbs and green algae. From the first application, you can expect ultra-clean, breathing skin that is moisturized and energized, yet with its natural protective barrier preserved.
This mask contains no gritty or overly scrubby particles that might scratch the surface of the skin and cause irritation or scars. There is no clay to avoid any drying effects and to make the mask easier to remove, and no isolated nutrients.
There are so many different types of masks, and many have drawbacks: some are drying, some pore clogging, and some contain potentially irritant or allergy-causing preservatives or emulsifiers. Catharsis removes impurities and provides a strong detox and skin brightening effect, but is non-stripping, nondrying, moisturising, and gentle.
For all skin types, especially acne-prone, mature, and with rosacea, psoriasis, or eczema.
If you are wondering which face mask is the right choice for you:
Catharsis is extremely versatile and offers visible, immediate results, even though it is mild, with no essential oils, preservatives, or clays. It has an invigorating, slightly bitter and green scent from the algae, aloe, and neem, and works well when time is limited as an in-the-shower mask. The soft powder has a long shelf life, does not need to be refrigerated, and is easy and exciting to customize by adding a hydrosol, honey, and/or a few drops of facial oil. We particularly recommend Catharsis for acne-prone skin and as a spot-treatment mask for blemishes.
While Catharsis is cooling, our Sungod mask is nurturing. With Catharsis, you can expect immediate results after each use, while Sungod is designed to produce longer-term changes and heal the skin gradually over time. We particularly recommend it for signs of premature aging and for dull or mature skin.
Our third powder-format mask, Imhotep's Balsam, is hydrating and nourishing, with a scent that is evocative of mystical temples and a cedar forest. We particularly recommend this mask for dry or sensitive skin.
Catharsis and Imhotep's Balsam are both vegan and do not contain clay, while Sungod contains humanely-gathered flower pollen and a small amount of mild clay.
Measure out 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of the powder into a ceramic bowl and mix with a very small amount of warm (not hot) water, adding the water drop by drop, to achieve a paste consistency. We also recommend adding a small amount of honey. Apply onto freshly washed, towel-dried skin and leave on for 10 to 30 minutes, then rinse off. Also try it as an in-the-shower mask or spot-treatment mask for blemishes. The mask can be used as often as desired. Avoid inhaling the powder.
More and more customers and green beauty bloggers have suggested a very savvy tip that we recommend as well: mist the face with any hydrosol, facial toner or mist, or even just water periodically while the mask is on; this will keep the mask moist. This reduces the drying effect of any mask and enhances the nourishing benefits of our Catharsis Face Mask ingredients.
I love a fab mask, especially one that works. And this one certainly does, to detox, brighten and effectively provide a clean fresh result. I love to combine the powder with the Cistus and Moonlight Face Mist and a little raw organic local honey (the real stuff) - preparing a paste in a teeny little bowl, then lay back in the bath and relax for 15 minutes. Bliss.
