WHY I MADE INTENSE RESTORE MASK
“When I first started out in the Beauty industry, I would make celebrity facialists a special chemical and biological peel that they would keep using time and time again to give glowing complexions to their clients. After the repeat orders and great feedback from them, I converted this mask into an at-home version that microdoses the skin with lactic acid, antioxidants and enzymes to help gently exfoliate the skin and even out the complexion.
The bright red colour in my Intense Restore Mask comes from the real pure pomegranate puree I make in my lab. Depending on skin acceptance this is a mask to use as often as every 2-3 days to maintain a clear complexion. Be sure to apply a thick layer avoiding the eye and nasal areas.” – Nausheen Qureshi, Skincare Biochemist & Founder
Pomegranate juice: rich in ellagic acid that helps depleted skin feel firmer, high in vitamins C and K, minerals like iron, zinc and potassium, an effective skin hydrator.
Lactic acid: in our opinion the safest alpha-hydroxy acid to gently chemically resurface the skin.
Papain enzyme: promotes biological exfoliation of dead epidermal skin cells to help brighten the skin.
Glycerin: a beautifully textured hydrating ingredient, attracting water to the skin to help soothe the skin.
Green tea extract: a strong natural antioxidant.
Grape skin extract: a potent antioxidant and reduces visible redness.
Because of the strength of this resurfacing treatment and its low pH, we decided not to fragrance this product so as not to introduce potential allergens or irritation to the skin.
