A New Take: Clay Masks

Author Team Essentialist

No, the Weekly Reset Mask is not just another clay mask. Forget the luxe sounding French pink clay, bentonite, kaolin, or green clays, we're working with clay on a whole new level.

We love what clay can do for skin. It’s a star ingredient for stressed, breakout prone, or congested skin, and a savior for anyone facing exposure to pollution and toxins. What we don’t love is how drying clay can be. Most of us finish with a clay mask and feel like our skin is about to tear apart it’s so parched. Our task, creating a non-drying clay mask that leaves skin replenished, soft, and supple.

Here’s the tricky part, not all clay is created equal, so we started searching and found  the very best right in our backyard. Canadian glacial clay can only be found in a few isolated areas along the Pacific Coast. It’s hand harvested from melted glacial deposits that date back to the last ice age ~14,000 years ago. This clay is really more like sea mud, it’s composed of super fine particles able to penetrate the skin’s inner layers. By providing a unique profile of hundreds of natural minerals, earth elements, marine actives, micronutrients, and vitamins, this clay infuses skin with essential nourishment while drawing out impurities and toxins. Aside from its extraordinary detoxification benefits it also gently exfoliates, minimizes pores, reduces excess oil, improves overall texture and tone, restores and balances pH, as well as rehydrates. No other clay can claim this breadth of benefit, especially when it comes to replenishment and hydration. 

We didn’t just leave it at the clay, we've added a complete profile of rich and restorative ingredients like Niacinamide, Vitamin C & E, Green Tea Seed Extract, Mafura Seed Oil, and Hyaluronic Acid to replenish and hydrate skin. By helping to restore your skins microbiome and moisture barrier this clay mask won’t leave you with the over dried and stripped feeling that other clay masks do. Make the Weekly Reset Mask your new go-to for regular at home maintenance and see the difference. We’ve been converting our friends, now it’s your turn to get addicted.
