Face Cleansing meets Blue Beauty

Active Algae Detox Mask
Active Algae Detox Mask

In recent years, marine ecosystems have become a great source of inspiration and innovation for the beauty industry. For this “blue” beauty trend, plant-based ingredients are now being sourced from the sea, such as algae.

Active Algae Detox Mask is designed to detoxify the face by gently removing surface skin cells. Furthermore, the mask promotes the skin elasticity. Our new ingredient Cetiol® SoftFeel helps to moisturize and soothe the skin while the combination of our active ingredients PatcH2 and Seanactiv® helps to remove pollutants and toxins from the skin and limits visible signs of aging and fatigue around the eyes.

Based on our Cosmos approved biopolymers Verdessence™ Xanthan, Verdessence™ Alginate and Verdessence™ RiceTouch1, this formulation offers an alternative to synthetic polymers.

All you have to do is leave the mask on for a few minutes and relax!
