Signature — Mineral Mask

The Signature Mineral Mask is an award-winning mineral clay mask designed to soothe, strengthen and refine the skin. This product is a miracle-worker in reducing redness and evening out skin tone, with the ability to deliver instantaneous results after just one use.

It has one key ingredient in the product - Kaolin Clay; its mineral composition rich in Silica and Aluminium, including traces of Iron Oxide, Sodium, Potassium, Calcium and Magnesium. Kaolin Clay is less drying on the skin surface, absorbing less water than other clays; a more suitable option for those who suffer from dry, irritated and sensitive skin.

First impressions

Fragrance
There is no fragrance in this product. Clays have no scent when in their purest form.

Texture
This is a fine white clay in powder form. Once this product is in contact with water, it can form a smooth creamy consistency (mix 2 teaspoons with enough water for this).

Efficacy
Once a creamy consistency, apply the mask to the face and neck using the brush. The mask should not completely dry - you should remove it with a warm muslin cloth or face washer as a compress once it starts to patch dry. This is because the drying stage is where the most moisture can be pulled from the skin, leaving it dehydrated.

If the mask is taken off in the appropriate time length, the results are outstanding. Immediately reducing redness, swelling, inflammation, as well as tightening and refining pores.
