Winter can be incredibly tough on our skin. Harsh winds and cold, dry air can cause all kinds of damage, resulting in dry, rough skin. The constant change between central heating and outdoor temperatures certainly doesn’t help, creating the perfect environment for itchy and flaky skin. This can also have flow-on effects, escalating conditions such as dermatitis and eczema.
One of the perfect solutions for all your winter skin problems is to add a mask to your routine. Ultra hydrating and nourishing, they are the ideal antidote to the typical winter skin. Our Zeolite Detox Face Mask is a carefully formulated synergy, designed to balance and restore skin to its complete glory.
Introducing Zeolite, an amazing volcanic mineral formed over millions of years in the pristine region of rural Australia, and the star of this mask. Known as one of the most powerful natural absorbents due to a unique & uniformal array of honeycomb-like cages that attract pollutants by ion exchange. Synthesis Zeolite is micronized via a propriety process to expose more of the honeycomb structures and maximize effectiveness, reaching deep into the pores to extract even minute toxins.
