Osmia Organics Detox Exfoliating Mask
Use once a week, twice at the most. Be sure to use only the gentlest pressure with any exfoliating treatments. Apply the mask to moist skin, and do not allow it to dry completely on the skin. Try misting your skin lightly with mineral water while the mask is working. Remove in the shower, and don't use a white washcloth!!
For: All skin types, even sensitive or dermatitis-prone skin.
How: Combine two scoops (about one teaspoon) of powder with enough water to make a paste. Apply to clean, damp skin. For a quickie facial, massage gently for 60-90 seconds, step into the shower and rinse. For a deeper treatment, leave the mask for 5-10 minutes, and then massage it off in the shower. Use once a week.

Osmia Organics begins with the ingredients we choose. We consider quality over cost-savings – we buy the most beautiful, raw plant materials we can find, even if they are more expensive. We are not a certified organic company at this time, but if an ingredient is available in certified organic form, that is how we will use it. All of our USDA certified organic ingredients are indicated with an asterisk in the list of ingredients on each product page.
Three kinds of purifying clay, nourishing raw cacao and manuka honey, and toxin-removing activated bamboo charcoal are the key ingredients in this dual-purpose exfoliating mask. It comes as a dry powder with a small, ceramic dish and stirring spatula, as pictured. It may be used weekly as an exfoliating paste - the organic, finely-ground walnut shells and olive leaf powders will gently resurface and condition the skin. If left on for 10-15 minutes as a mask first, it will also pull impurities from the skin as it dries. The raw cacao softens the skin, as its natural caffeine tones and lifts. Afterwards, step in the shower and softly massage the mask away, leaving behind smooth, soft, conditioned skin. Comes with locally handcrafted ceramic bowl and bamboo mixing spoon.
For: All skin types
