Origin: from more than one country but produced in Brittany, France. The powder is vivid green which turns a more deep olive green when mixed. The Peel-Off Olive Face Mask contains olive leaves, spirulina algae and rosemary essential oil.
Thanks to the properties of the mask it leaves the skin replenished and moisturised. The rosemary oil along with the other ingredients has a pleasant cooling effect on the skin while the mask is on, almost like menthol. It provides an efficient facial treatment that can be tailored to meet your own needs.

The olive leaves contain a phenolic compound, which is antioxidant and antibacterial. Olive leaves also contain flavonoids and oleanolic acid which are traditionally used as scar-forming compounds.
Spirulina is a helicoidal filamentous algae with a blue-green colour due to the chlorophyll pigment and the phycocyanin pigment-protein complex. It has the amazing ability to synthesise high-quality concentrated nutrients more efficiently than any other algae.
It provides high concentrations of many nutrients, amino acids, vitamins, minerals, trace elements, essential lipids like gamma-linolenic acid and antioxidants such as beta carotene.
The rosemary leaf essential oil is regenerative, uplifting and moisturising.
Try adding up to 5% vegetable oils combined with oil soluble active ingredients to the powder or combine water soluble 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 extracted from seaweeds.
Instructions for using Peel Off Olive Face Mask
1 sachet is enough for 1-2 treatments.
Mix 30g (1 sachet) of powder with 90g of liquid (including vegetable oils and oil soluble active ingredients) or 15g of powder (1/2 sachet) with 45g of liquid (including vegetable oils and oil soluble active ingredients).
Do not exceed 5% oily additives as this will not combine fully with the Peel Off Olive Face 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 vegetable oils and oil soluble active ingredients, then add room temperature water (about 20°C) 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 create 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 easily be 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 is approximately 20°C 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.
