glycolic acid charcoal face mask how to recipe

Recipe: Glycolic Charcoal Facial Mask

Written by: | | 5 responses

We all know that face masks can be a luxurious way to treat our skin, and most masks address one or two issues. We wanted to create a mask that clarifies, exfoliates, hydrates, and soothes, so we made this simple recipe for a Glycolic Charcoal Facial Mask!

Our Charcoal Cream Mask is loaded with clarifying activated charcoal and extreme hydrators like hyaluronic acid, organic olive and jojoba oils, plus antioxidant-rich organic rooibos, toning DMAE and more. Combine this great mask with glycolic acid for exfoliating and refining and your skin will look absolutely flawless, smooth and glowing!

Glycolic acid is the smallest and most highly soluble of the alpha hydroxy acids, making it especially efficacious in exfoliants and chemical peels. Learn more about glycolic acid and other common acids used in skin care here.

And if you’re curious why charcoal has become all the rage in so many personal care products, learn about how surface area plays a big part in its purifying power in this blog.

Would it be ok to mix up a batch of this to use over time? Or should you mix the two, masque + glycolic, just before using?

Hi there!

It should be okay to use over time. The charcoal mask is well preserved.

Warmest regards,
