Greenhouse Glow Antioxidant Mask
What is it? Greenhouse Glow Antioxidant Mask is a nutrient-dense smoothie for the skin, designed to scavenge free radicals to maintain healthy skin function
Notes from the Curator: This is a balm-like mask that you mix with a water to create a creamy consistency before application. It is senstive to heat, so if it melts, place in the fridge to firm up.
Let’s get Nerdy: Says Carolyn, “Cold-pressed seed oils of cranberry, raspberry and pumpkin create a range of skin-loving vitamins of A & E, carotenoids and high linoleic fatty acids to help reduce inflammation and encourage rejuvenation. Oatmeal and snow mushroom contain powerful polysaccharides to help impart humectants to hydrate the deeper layers of the skin”.

- How to Use
Note: Sensitive to heat. If melted, place in the fridge to firm up. It can also be left in the fridge for a cooling masking experience to further calm the skin.
In a bowl or your palm mix ½ -1 tsp balm and a sprinkling of cool water. Blend to create a cream-like consistency. Using your facial brush or fingers, apply a thick layer over the skin, including the neck. Let sit for 30 minutes. To remove, use a wet soft cloth and gently remove. Mild circulation redness is normal and will subside. Use 2 times a week or as needed.
Bonus Use: Use as a mild cleansing balm to nourish and cleanse the skin with fine particles of oatmeal & pumpkin seed.
