One thing you can count on Starflower Essentials to do is deliver skincare products that are the most nutrient-dense and regenerative made from nature's finest ingredients, and the new Amino Bright Exfoliating Face Mask is an excellent example of that! Let's dive into some details on this product's ingredients and what makes it so heavenly.



Amino Acids and How They Benefit the Skin

The skincare stars here are the Amino Acids that this mask contains, hence the name. Delivered to the skin due to the bee pollen powder, Amino Acids are considered the building blocks of both peptides and proteins. Bee Pollen and its Amino Acids help speed healing, boosts circulation, kills bacteria, and keeps the skin hydrated, giving an overall supple, healthy appearance. They also possess amazing antioxidant properties, which means your skin will be less likely to show signs of aging and maintain a youthful glow.



Spice Up Your Skin Care

These pleasantly exotic spices are rooted centuries-deep in Indian and Asian cultures with a plethora of health and skincare benefits to achieve clear, glowing skin. Turmeric and Cumin are loaded with antioxidants, anti-inflammatory properties, along with vitamins and minerals such as vitamins Niacin (B3), Pyridoxine (B6), Riboflavin (B2), A, C, E, and K and minerals of calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorous, and zinc. All of this can help aid the healing of psoriasis, acne, scarring, skin discoloration, and prevent aging.




The Power of Plants

Calendula, a cheerful and colorful flower that is loved by herbalists across the world, and one of the most valuable herbs for soothing and healing inflammatory conditions of the skin. This lovely flower helps stimulate the formation of new tissue and gently promotes blood circulation within the cellular structure of the skin. It's rich in carotenoids, flavonoids, linoleic acid, c-reactive proteins, and cytokines which all help relieve inflammation. Overall, the power of this flower will visibly improve the look of the skin, reduce signs of aging, and even out the skin tone.

Olive leaves have been used for thousands of years by Egyptian and Mediterranean cultures for a wide variety of health problems. They contain nearly 100 phytochemicals and essential nutrients, which are known to assist in soothing dry, stressed skin. Other than that, olive leaf is well known for its antioxidant properties. It contains a compound called Oleuropein, which has a healing effect on chronic UVB-induced skin damage and carcinogenesis.




Behold the Benefits of Bentonite

Another ingredient that has been used for thousands of years is Bentonite Clay. It consists of aged volcanic ash also known as “Montmorillonite.” This clay has a high concentration of minerals such as silica, calcium, magnesium, sodium, iron, and potassium. It also absorbs and removes toxins, heavy metals, impurities, and chemicals. The negatively charged ions present in the clay attract and draw out the toxins to the skin surface. Bentonite clay helps heal acne, unclog pores, softens and brightens skin, reduces scars, evens skin tone, absorbs excess oils, heals skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, and gently exfoliates to remove dead skin cells. Talk about versatile!




Can you believe how healing this face mask is? It is even beneficial for all skin types! Especially for sluggish, devitalized, undernourished skin, as well as skin that struggles with conditions such as psoriasis, acne, scarring, sun damage, pigmentation issues, among many other conditions. The cooperation of the organic, food-grade ingredients in this mask produce a combined, well-rounded result greater than the sum of their separate individual properties.


How to Use Amino Bright Face Mask

  2. Apply to moistened face and neck and relax until the mask has dried, about 5 to 10 minutes.
  3. Remove with a warm, wet cloth followed with a cool rinse.
