A facial mask inspired by the sea and beauty. With dead sea clay & kelp your skin will be clear and refreshed. Bring a little fun to your natural facial care!
There are 2 reasons that this face mask comes as a powder that you must add your own liquid to
~~1 is so that you are able to mix your preferred liquid creating a specific blend for your needs (suggested liquids below)
~~2 is to keep this product preservative free
Use at most 1 - 2 times a week
Mix your desired amount of powder and liquid together. I prefer 1 tsp of powder to 1 Tbsp of liquid and then add some extra liquid depending on which type it is.
Do not use metal to measure or mix your face mask with, the metal reacts with the bentonite clay making it less effective
~Add Yogurt or Aloe Vera to help moisturize, fight acne, prevent premature aging, relieve sunburn, and reduce discoloration
~Add a liquid oil to moisturize and add more free radical fighting ability
~Add water to even out the oilyness (sebum level) of skin
Preservatives are necessary for many purposes but when they are unnecessary they are something you should avoid. These are the health risks that are possible with synthetic preservatives in skin care (there are more for preservatives in food)
Increased risk of cancer
Reduced heart health
Imitate estrogen, throwing hormones off
Disrupt the endocrine system
and cause reproductive defects
That being said there are preservatives that are plant-based or plant-derived that do not cause any of these side effects, they are approved through eco-cert and have none of the side effects stated above.
If you add a liquid to a product you add a breeding ground for bacteria, mold and microorganisms. Therefore the mask should be used when mixed. Preservatives are needed for many products but choosing them based on the purpose is the important factor. Preservatives are compounds designed to kill live things (bacteria, mold and microorganisms). They are similar to antibiotics that are very much needed to fight illnesses but will have side effects. Of course, if used wisely and carefully, the benefits of skin care products preservatives will outweigh the side effects.
If you find it impossible to avoid formulations (such as a lightweight lotion) that need preservatives, buy your skin care products from trusted sources, ask questions, and do your research.
There are many preservatives that are synthetic, common and have many adverse reactions. This is an example of only 1 type of preservative.
Parabens are cheap preservatives used in a wide range of cosmetic products. They prevent bacteria, mold, fungus, and even parasites from growing. Almost 60% of all cosmetic products contain parabens.
There are a few major concerns with parabens:
Studies show that these chemicals can be absorbed through our skin and into our bloodstream where they then stay and pile up.
They mimic estrogen in the body and disrupt our natural hormonal balance.
There may be a link between paraben exposure and breast cancer. This is not certain, but existing research is enough to prompt changes in consumer cosmetic choices

Dead Sea Clay
French Green Clay
Bentonite Clay is a unique clay due to its ability to produce an electrical charge when hydrated. When the clay comes into contact with fluid its electrical components change, carrying a strong negative charge which bonds to the positive charge in many toxins. When it comes in contact with a toxin, chemical, or heavy metal, the clay will absorb the toxin and release its minerals for the body to use. Bentonite also helps get oxygen to cells as it pulls excess hydrogen and allows the cells to replace it with oxygen instead. Fantastic for all skin types, great at detoxifying the skin and clearing pores.
Colloidal Oats are an emollient, helping soothe the cracks in dry skin. There are polysaccharides (long sugars) that bind water to the skin surface, making it a humectant. It has lipids, which reinforce the skin’s barrier. Saponins, which are like natural soaps and anti-infective. It also contains the antioxidants ferulic acid, caffeic acid, and coumaric acid. Finally, it contains avenanthramides A, B, and C that are anti-inflammatory.
