The skin cannot absorb or retain water without the proper balance of electrolytes. With dehydrated cells comes a loss of efficiency in cellular processes, resulting in ageing, ware and dullness of the skin
The key to retaining water/hydration in your skin, is the infusion of electrolytes; Potassium, Magnesium, Sodium, Chloride, Phosphorous, Bicarbonate & Sodium Pyrophosphate. With this mask, your skin can fight signs of ageing and ware, resulting in glowing, healthy and regenerative skin.
- Hyaluronic Acid (Sodium Hyaluronate) Hyaluronic Acid deeply moisturizes and improves skin elasticity by holding up to 5,000 times its weight in water. Hyaluronic acid is distributed widely throughout skin tissue, improving the skin moisture balance and maintaining lipid balance while increasing cellular renewal by improving the skin moisture barrier. Hyaluronic acid readily binds moisture in the skin boosting moisturization and plumping the surrounding tissues. When the skin is inflamed due to harsh treatments, sunburn, or other irritants, the cells in the dermis do not produce as much hyaluronic acid as usual. Hyaluronic Acid is a major component of the skin and is an important element in tissue repair. The loss of hyaluronic acid results in slower tissue repair therefore accelerating the aging process causing skin to lose its moisture therefore contributing to the unwanted aged look.
- Organic Aloe Vera Powder Aloe relieves from sunburn pain and redness due to its excellent moisturizing and soothing benefits. Aloe Vera also helps to maintain the natural pH level of the skin. Aloe is an excellent natural source of sorbic acid, providing emollient qualities to soften and soothe skin. Sorbic acid is also well known for its antifungal properties. Proteolytic enzymes in Aloe Vera help remove dead skin cells which clogs the pores of the skin.

Drinking more water or applying moisture cosmetics does not always remedy skin dryness. One of the most common culprits or dry skin is an electrolyte imbalance. The skin cannot absorb and retain water without the proper balance of electrolytes. The key is the infusion of electrolytes: Potassium, Magnesium, Sodium, Chloride, Phosphorous, Bicarbonate and Sodium Pyrophosphate. These electrolytes help the skin achieve a natural moisture balance that is essential to keep the skin healthy, beautiful, and in great working order. This electrolyte enhanced Hydrojelly mask provides the skin with a blast of essential electrolytes to protect the skin from dryness, fatigue and flawless.
COMMON INGREDIENTS AND BENEFITS
- Algae (Potassium Alginate, Sodium Alginate) Refined algae from seaweed and kelp; Algae comes to us with the spirit ocean. One of the algae’s most notable powers is its ability to instantly hydrate the skin. It is a rich source of natural polysaccharides with a proven ability to enhance the skin's barrier function, replenish the skin's natural water reserves and increase its moisture-retention capabilities. Also algae produce 60% of the oxygen we use every day. It carries tremendous oxygen, infusing it into the skin for detoxification and boosting the skin’s defenses against a variety of environmental stressors.
- Organic Whole Grain Oat flour Oat is an effective humectant, meaning it helps the skin retain moisture. Oat also has skin-soothing properties and is hypoallergenic to help alleviate rashes and allergic reactions, as well as sunburn and other skin irritation and damage.
- Organic White Rice Flour Rice has excellent properties for cleansing, exfoliating, and conditioning the skin. It also protects the skin against environmental damage. Rice is a natural moisturizer, allowing our skin to stay hydrated and healthy.
- Organic White Willow Bark Powder White willow bark has astringent properties due to natural tannins, rich in anti- oxidants, which help to tone and reduce inflammation and provide relief from skin conditions such as eczema, rosacea, and psoriasis.
WHY POWDER FORM
Water and oxygen exposure can spoil algae in cosmetics. To prevent spoilage, cosmetics formulated with algae need a strong preservative ingredient. Esthemax prefers to avoid unwanted preservatives so we preserve our powder masks in dry powder form. The dry ingredients stay fresh and are activated by mixing the mask powder with water prior to mask application. Cosmetics in powder form remain shelf stable for longer and require significantly fewer preservatives, making powder masks a safe and elective alternative for the skin.
