Dodge disposable sheet masks and surpass the synthetic, filmy, and flimsy ingredients that they are injected with. Most sheet masks include thirty to fifty iffy ingredients, and the first ingredient, the main ingredient, is water — just regular water that you can get from your tap, along with artificial ingredients. Glycerin (along with other glycols), which is almost always an ingredient, is a highly processed humectant that provides temporary plumping yet ultimately leads skin cells to shrivel through a process called osmolarity. Glycerin has about fifteen different names, including 1,2,3-propanetriol, 1,2,3-trihydroxypropane, clyzerin, glicerol, glycyl alcohol, NSC 9230, polyglycerol, and propane-1,2,3-triol. The ingredient listed as “fragrance” can represent hundreds of chemicals, and so on it goes. Why soak your fine face in a mask with these senseless synthetics when nature provides pure, potent botanical blessings to grace your face?
Living Libations sheet masks are made of non-absorptive silicone, so that you absorb all of the luscious facial serum. It acts as a barrier to evaporation, so more product is absorbed by the skin and less of the skin care product is wasted. The mask physically seals in the ingredients and allows body heat to warm up the ingredients for maximum absorption. And, there is nothing to throw away – the silicone mask is endlessly reusable and a snap to wash.
Living Libations silicone mask is medical grade and biocompatible. Silicone is a nearly inert, stable synthetic rubber made of silicon (a natural element) and oxygen. It is elastic, strong, and resistant to water, salt, lipids, and corrosion. It is also naturally non-microbial and fully recyclable. Its innate flexibility makes this sheet mask easy to apply to the face without tearing, so it is long-lasting and can be used repeatedly.
