Matcha Facial Mask Antioxidant
Isa's Restoratives Matcha Facial Mask Antioxidant is a powerful antioxidant mask to help slow down the ageing process and protect the skin against free radical damages.
Highly antioxidant with its Matcha, Rice, Horse-chestnut, Amla, Acerola & Nettle, the Matcha Facial mask is also deeply anti-inflammatory thanks to its chlorophyll content from Matcha, Licorice & Butcher's broom. It will soothe irritated and inflamed skin.
With its high level of Vitamin C, it helps reduce damages caused by free radicals, by naturally boosting cellular turnover and collagen production, strengthening connective tissues as well as capillaries and healing scars.
Mineral-rich French green Clay & Acerola detoxify, Kaolin clay draws out excess oils, while Nettle & Aloe provide nutrients and hydration to the skin.
To complete this formula, Clary Sage, Patchouli & Rose will relax skin and mind for a relieved and toned complexion
Deeply regenerating, the Matcha Facial mask also firms and strengthens the skin barrier to protect the skin against daily aggressions : stress, pollution, UV, ageing...
Isa is the heart and mind behind her namesake plant-based skincare that is Isa's Restoratives.
Growing up in Brazil's widespread countryside, Isa has been using folk medicine from a very young age and knows the benefits and effects of pure plants on skin and mind.
Now living in Brooklyn, she embarked on a journey back to find again pure, fresh plant formulas. Working with scientists and herbalists from around the world, she studied plant properties in a scientific manner, loving to know the chemistry of it all, at the base of formulating truly restorative products.
With a mind focused on sustainability, Isa uses mainly locally grown and mindfully harvested, privileging on plants that are very abundant in her area, like Wild rose, Violet, Mugwort, Comfrey, Chickweed... When purchasing, she works of course with trusted suppliers, often local or small businesses and even grows some of the plants in her own garden.
Producing in small batches to insure freshness and attention to details, Isa is happy to gift her creations to us in sleek and gorgeous packaging you'll love to reuse.

Apply on the Face and Neck, as needed.
In a bowl, or in your palm, add 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of powder mask.
Trickle a bit of water in the bowl with your fingers, work into a paste until reaching preferred consistency. You can also add 2 to 3 drops of the preferred serum to help keep the mask hydrated and active on the skin.
It amounts to approximately the same amount of fluids as of dry powder.
Keep in mind that the consistency should be slightly runnier than what you want the final result to be, as it will jellify lightly while pausing (see next step)
Let steep like your favourite tea for a few minutes.
Apply on your wet Face and Neck with wet fingers or a mask brush.
Leave on for 10-15 minutes.
Be careful to not let the mask dry out during this step. A dry mask can be damaging for the skin and isn't active any more.
To avoid this, you have several options (depending on the length of your ritual or mood of the day):
- Spray with thermal or filtered water regularly
- Re-hydrate with wet fingers (pat gently) or wet mask brush (same movements as applying)
- Use while taking a hot long bath or shower : the steam from both is enough to keep it moist.
- Indulge in me time with applying a wet warm towel on top of your face, and rest (or meditate...).
To remove the mask, rinse it off with lukewarm water.
To avoid scrubbing it off, the best method is to rehydrate it by applying for a few seconds a wet warm towel on the face, pat, then gently rinse off.
Do not let water or moisture inside the jar. Keep in a cool, dark place.
