Dessert for your face, yes, but there is serious science behind this face mask. Let’s start with the vitamin C. Despite vitamin C being so good for your skin, a large number of vitamin C serums, creams and concoctions are actually cancer causing. Vitamin C in its many forms quickly degenerates in most formulas, actually oxidizing, which means that instead of feeding the skin something healthy it can use, you are actually feeding skin destructive and possibly cancer causing free radicals.
Several types of vitamin C derived from oil bases such as palm have been found to actually cause cell death. This formula was created to combat the hazards of vitamin C while delivering skin a healthy dose. Wild African baobab fruit contains six times the vitamin C as oranges. Shea Terra have utilized the raw fruit powder in its whole form to help provide skin with an unaltered boost of vitamin C as well as a multitude of other nutrients. The results are often skin that is more resistant to free radicals, brighter and younger looking.
Key Ingredients & Benefits
- Baobab fruit powder: Made fresh for us in Zimbabwe this fruit powder is packed with nutrients including a mega-dose of vitamin C, magnesium, and twice as much calcium as milk. It is also rich in enzymes which help break down dead skin. The results can be skin that is brighter, more resilient, firmer and softer.
- Banana fruit powder: Not only is banana packed with potassium, biotin, vitamin B6 and vitamin C, but they also contain a load of natural sugars and pectin which help soften and smooth skin. This formula is loaded with banana powder and sweetened with the delicious aroma of real banana extract.
- Organic vegetable glycerin: Soothing base that helps to deliver the nutrients in this mask. We chose glycerin because it won’t dry out while mask is on face. This allows you to leave the mask on longer to reap more of the benefits. Glycerin also helps pull moisture into the skin and plump up cells. This can be felt by the mask heating up skin while on face. This natural action also helps to deliver nutrients to cells.
- White clay: White clay was added to this mask to detoxify skin and pull out impurities. No sense in radiant, glowing skin with clogged pores and blemishes.
