The Gentle Mask: Hydrating Recovery provides deep hydration and instant soothing relief to irritated and inflamed skin. As this mask steeps, it transforms into a rich fuchsia color with a jelly-like texture that cools and calms the skin. It restores nutrients for both skin and barrier support, leaving behind a soft, supple glow. One should expect to see a reduction in swelling, puffiness, and inflammation after use. This Mask contains medicinal flowers, roots, mushrooms, and berries to provide botanical hyaluronic acid, polysaccharides, B vitamins, essential fatty acids, azulene, anthocyanin, vitamin C, flavonoids, and vitamin E. While this Mask is suitable for all skin types, we especially recommend it for rosacea symptoms, compromised skin barriers, dry and dehydrated skin, and sensitive skin.

Mostly roots and petals, this Mask is filled with plants that are rich in mucilage, humectants and saccharides – all plants that support lymph flow, healthy fascia, and hydration. Roses and Marshmallow take center stage, plumping each cell with hydration. Antioxidants and healing phytonutrients from plants like Hibiscus, Cornflower and Buddleia are there to strengthen and repair. Reishi Mushroom, another super-hydrator, adds polysaccharides for nutrient delivery into deeper layers of the skin, as well as supports the microbiome. Tamanu Oil and Pomegranate Oil offer a wide array of beneficial omegas and provide a gentle delivery system for many of these nutrients into the skin. Essential oils are both barrier supportive and microdosed in this Mask, such as German Chamomile for cooling inflammation relief and White Rose for connective tissue.

Marshmallow – This mucilaginous and polysaccharide rich root has an incredible ability to hydrate. It is nature’s form of hyaluronic acid, plumping up each cell and wrapping them in what feels like a cooling hug. It is high in B Vitamins and betaine making it soothing, healing, anti-inflammatory, and softening to the skin. It thickens the mask and gives it that gelatinous texture when time is set aside to ‘steep’ the mask like a tea.

Rose – Our vibrant heirloom Rose petals are grown exclusively for us by a California farm. Their vitality and antioxidant content are palpable. Rose is a powerful hydrating humectant and visibly plumps and regenerates the skin. Constituents like B Vitamins, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, flavonoids, anthocyanin, and gallic acid are all found in Rose petals.

Helichrysum – This little yellow flower is as gentle as it is potent. It reduces redness and swelling. Helichrysum strengthens tissues and supports cellular healing activity, and reduces the appearance of scars and broken capillaries.

Pomegranate – This is one of the most beautiful oils that we work with. It is rich and thick by nature, healing to skin barriers that have been damaged over time by inflammation.

Tamanu – There is no replacement for the deep cool green Tamanu oil, a sacred plant medicine that we source directly from growers on a small island off the coast of Australia. It is anti-inflammatory, wound healing, and balancing to our skin’s microbiome.

Reishi – Our Reishi is organically cultivated from the Pacific Northwest and contains hydrating and soothing polysaccharides and B Vitamins. Reishi has a lymph affinity which can decrease puffiness and stagnation. Other notable skin-specific constituents in Reishi are peptides and amino acids.

Apply 1 teaspoon or less of Gentle Mask to mask bowl and trickle a bit of water in with your fingertips to preferred consistency. Using approximately twice as much water as Mask, mix with a brush into a runny paste. Allow to rest and steep like tea for a few minutes. Allowing the Mask to steep will cause it to thicken the jelly-like texture we recommend for efficacy. Once ready to apply, moisten face with water. Apply gently to face and neck with fingertips or preferably a Laurel Skin fan mask brush. Leave on for 10-30 minutes, then remove with a warm cloth. Keep mask hydrated to keep mask active and prevent from drying on the skin. The longer the mask is left on the more frequently it will need to be rehydrated to stay active. Re-hydrate it with a wet brush, wet fingertips, a mister bottle of water, or steam from bath or shower.

Use within 12 months of opening and by the recommended use-by date, which is found on the bottom of the jar. Store this product in a cool, dry and dark place. Keep contents of jar dry and free from moisture.

Essential Oils as Medicine
There is so much controversy in the industry today over essential oils, and whether or not they should be utilized in skin care. Essential Oils are often misused. They are arguably the most potent medicine that herbalists have to work with, but most herbalists would never recommend how they are being used today: undiluted, high concentrations, ingested, and more.

Our products could not be more different in the way that we utilize Essential Oils. We use essential oils with great care and caution, and they are a part of the plant medicine that makes our formulas so effective. Contrary to many industry narratives, there are studies that show that certain essential oils like Rose can actually repair the skin barrier. It’s all about which essential oils are chosen and how they are used, as opposed to one extreme narrative or another. The total percentage of essential oils in our Gentle Mask is .25% (yes, one quarter of one percent). This is considered a ‘micro-dose’ and will not have a negative impact on the skin’s barrier or the microbiome. In fact, we find that all our products that contain essential oils have a positive effect on both.
