Face masks are great for purging and pulling impurities from the skin. The Good Stuff masks use bentonite clay due to its anti-inflammatory properties and its ability to draw toxins from the pores. This clay consists of aged volcanic ash and has a high concentration of minerals including silica, magnesium, calcium, sodium, iron and potassium. Not only does it draw impurities out of the skin but it absorbs and removes heavy metals, chemical and other toxins (I use it in my homemade toothpaste as well).
Other clays or powders are used as well, such as Moringa powder which is high in Vitamin A (retinols), B & C and has an antiseptic and skin purifying qualities.
The masks come premixed or you can by them dry and add water per each use. If you buy them dry, you are guaranteeing a much longer shelf life. Because I do not use commercial grade preservatives, as I try to keep all my products ‘au natruel’, the shelf-life on the premixed masks are about six months if kept in a cool dry place. Refrigerating is another option to extent shelf life.
Please specify skin type as the different clays used can be adjusted accordingly.
If you purchase them dry, you can also add other ingredients to your mask, customizing it to your specific needs. See below for some recipes and ides 🙂
