Charcoal & Kaolin face mask

Charcoal & Kaolin face mask

Formula: 41308

Phase Ingredients for ~50 ml Quantity
A activated charcoal 4 gr
A white clay 12 gr
A emulsifier Alfa 30 gr
A lemon essential oil 17 drops

Sanitize the dedicated containers and utensils you will work with, details in the general safety guidelines.

Preparation method:
In a bowl or glass mix the clay and charcoal. Add the emulsifier and mix slowly, thoroughly. Finally add the essential oil and mix well.
The resulting composition is transferred to the dedicated container.

The result is a face mask with purifying properties that deeply cleanses the skin and frees it from residues and accumulated sebum. Apply with a brush or spatula, leave on for about 15 minutes, then rinse with lukewarm water. 

Instead of lemon essential oil, you can use other essential oils chosen according to preferences and their properties, for example tea tree, ravensara aromatica, fragonia, petitgrain, rosemary, eucalyptus lemon, green mandarin etc. Those with sensitive skin can remove this ingredient from the recipe.
When rinsing, the mask emulsifies once it comes in contact with water, and the charcoal - known to leave marks on the skin but also on the sink - is very easy to wash thanks to the emulsifier. In addition, the mask does not dry and does not tighten the face. After rinsing the skin will not be very dry, as it generally remains after a regular mask.
