Tidal Moon Moisture Mask
What is it? This rich mask replenishes moisture with hydrating raw honey, conditioning oils, and protective butters. Elevated with a collection of nutrient-dense algae extracts and a unique may-apple ferment for an antioxidant boost while enhancing the skin’s ability to hold moisture.
Notes from the Curator: The scent is sweet and warm with subtle hints of cedar and fir and the texture is smooth like a balm with a touch of honey, adding richness.
Let’s Get Nerdy: Oil derived from Chlamydomonas reinhardtii. A highly sustainable and multifunctional algal extract with skin-identical lipids including essential fatty acids, sterols, and phytoceramides. Long-term use shows an increase in hydration where the oil is unique in its ability to increase water uptake. Improves clarity and firmness from naturally occurring compounds that promote cellular renewal and proliferation.
