The Peel-Off Marine Silt Mask contains marine silt, which contributes to its grey/brown colour. For many years spas have been using marine silt as a skin treatment. Its action is due to the penetration of the marine ions and the thermoplastic properties of marine mud.
Thanks to the properties of the mask the skin is left replenished and moisturised. The rosemary and lemon oil along with the other ingredients have a pleasant cooling effect on the skin while the mask is on, almost like menthol. The rosemary leaf essential oil is regenerative, uplifting and moisturising; lemon is astringent, cleansing and refreshing.
Try adding up to 5% vegetable oils combined with oil soluable active ingredients to the powder or combine water soluable active ingredients with hydrosols to mix the mask. You could even use a combination of oil and water soluble active ingredients for a truly potent bespoke skin treatment.
When applied as a paste to the face, it rubberises after a few minutes, due to a natural process of the alginate from the seaweeds.
Instructions for using Peel-Off Marine Silt Mask
1 sachet is enough for 1-2 treatments
Mix 30g (1 sachet) of powder with 90g of liquid (including vegetable oils and oil soluable active ingredients) or 15g of powder (1/2 sachet) with 45g of liquid (including vegetable oils and oil soluable active ingredients).
Do not exceed 5% oily additives as this will not combine fully with the Peel Off Marine Silt Mask powder. Although the mask will set up, albeit more slowly, you will find a layer of un-combined oils on the skin which may prevent the mask from working most efficiently.
Place the powder from the sachet into a bowl, add your chosen oils and then add room temperature water (about 20 degrees Celsius) to the powder. Remember to use LESS water if you have added any oils so that you do not exceed the 90g or 45g of liquid or the mask may not set properly.
Mix vigorously to get a homogenous paste. Apply to the skin immediately and leave it to perform its action for 15 minutes. It will rubberise on the skin within a few minutes and once rubberised/set you cannot mix it with water again so work quickly and only use as much as you need. The mask peels off easily once treatment is over. Any excess around the edges can be easily removed by rubbing gently with a damp face cloth.
NB! Make sure the water, water soluble active ingredients or hydrosols you use to make the paste are approximately 20 degrees Celsius so that the rubberising process will take place more slowly and you can quietly enjoy your treat. If the water is too warm it will speed up the rubberising process and you will have to work very quickly before the mask sets up in the bowl and is unusable.
