Protein Exfoliating Mask
Combine 2 teaspoons of masque with 1.5 teaspoons of water, and stir to make an even paste in the ceramic bowl. Gently spread the paste over your clean face and neck, leave on the skin for 10-15 minutes, and rinse off in the shower. It will feel tighter as it dries - just press it with wet hands or spray with mineral water to moisten if you prefer not to feel the tightening. Use gentle circular motions with the fingertips while rinsing for extra exfoliation. Use once or twice a week. This product is also wonderful mixed with raw honey, if you're feeling creative!

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.
Organic, hand-milled adzuki beans (we mill them ourselves!) have been used for centuries by Japanese women to exfoliate their skin. We combine this dusky red powder with organic protein-rich quinoa (which we also mill ourselves) to give the skin an enzymatic exfoliation, while moisturizing deeper layers of the skin. Wild-harvested red sandalwood powder tones and provides a finer resurfacing of the skin. If you're in a rush, this powder may be used as a cleansing and exfoliating paste. But, if time allows, leaving it on as a mask will provide the skin with fortifying proteins, and a tightening action that leaves skin feeling both firm and soft, and smelling of earth and lavender. Comes with a locally handcrafted ceramic bowl and bamboo mixing spoon.
