Our multi-purpose mask relies on nothing but nature to provide you with the best in beauty. Green and white clays work together to help restore, balance, cleanse, and detoxify; four sea vegetables re-mineralize, hydrate, and oxygenate cells; sugarcane serves to exfoliate, unclog pores, and stimulate the production of elastin and collagen; acai and goji berry extracts lend their extraordinary super-powers as antioxidants, functioning as regenerative “food” for the skin; jojoba and sunflower seed oils nourish and moisturize; three teas are employed in both whole leaf and extract forms to ensure maximum potency for antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and energizing effects; and a harmonious blend of extremely concentrated herbal extracts and essential oils further nurture the skin and senses.
Matcha: Queen of Green Tea
Green tea has earned critical acclaim as a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory that feeds the skin a rich array of vitamins, minerals, proteins, and amino acids. Matcha, the queen of all green teas, offers these amazing features times ten! Why is Matcha so much better than your average green tea? Because it is made of whole ground tea leaves as opposed to an aqueous infusion (i.e. watered down version) of green tea. Matcha’s tannins help build and strengthen collagen, thus firming and toning the skin and significantly improving its elasticity. Matcha’s antioxidant components consist of a special group of polyphenols called catechins, which are extraordinarily potent and plentiful. The health benefits of catechins have been studied extensively and have demonstrated far greater antioxidant protection than both vitamins C and E, possibly because of their ability to penetrate cells so effectively. They help protect the skin from UV damage, prevent collagen breakdown, increase immunity, and boost detoxifying enzymes to promote skin clarity and improve its overall health and well-being. Matcha’s anti-inflammatory components are found in its caffeine which combines with its polyphenols to deliver bionic beautifying benefits! These anti-inflammatories aid in healing acne, rosacea and eczema; they help reduce redness, puffiness and swelling, and can even help prevent the permanent destruction of tissue, helping to reverse the hands of time. There’s a good chance Matcha was Wonder Woman’s choice tea. It’s ours.

Formulated as a face mask, it can also be utilized to create a sea~spa soak by adding 1 tsp to a warm foot bath or 1 Tbls to a full body bath.

Pangea’s Japanese Matcha Tea with Acai & Goji Facial Mask is absolutely exquisite. I love to smear the dark green, muddy stuff all over my face with that sweet earthy smell about me. Taking it off is actually my favorite part of the process. A hot, steaming wash cloth is my favorite tool for removal, which allows for a wonderful exfoliation in the end. Clean, soft, glowing, and radiant - this is how my skin looks and feels after I use the mask, and I get that inner happiness giddiness in my heart. You know, like let's dance cheek to cheek.
