The skin is directly affected by the use of topical applications. Lipid-soluble molecules pass through the epidermis and may also penetrate the dermis. Thus topical applications can be considered a very efficient, targeted method for delivering nutrients to the skin, especially to the epidermis.
This mask is formulated with ingredients based on their ability to support various processes crucial to the maintenance of skin health and the delay of skin aging, specifically; antioxidant protection, barrier function, glycation and DNA methylation. The micronutrient selection process was strategic in analyzing each potential micronutrient based on their functionality, bio-accessibility, sourcing, etc., resulting in a formulation that profoundly rehydrates skin, while optimizing functionality.

Apply a thick layer over entire face and neck, massaging in to create an occlusive film. 1-3 x week leave on 20-30 min, or overnight for intensive treatment. If irritation occurs, discontinue use and consult physician. Keep in a cool, dry place, out of direct light. Use within 6 months of opening.
EGCG-3 major and most highly chemopreventive constituent in green tea, the catechin possesses antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
CARNOSINE inhibits glycation processes known to accelerate skin aging. A natural metabolite in the body that is also a powerful antioxidant.
BACOPA potent antioxidant with excellent penetrative properties.
B VITAMINS cobalamin and folic acid are crucial to proper DNA methylation, imperative to younger skin.
MAGNESIUM ASCORBYL PALMITATE builds collagen and protects against reactive oxygen species (aka free-radicals).
ARGININE enhances collagen production—an ingredient precursor of collagen synthesis.
TRACE MINERALS supply missing minerals such as copper, magnesium, manganese, and calcium essential for skin health.
