Sungod Face Mask

$44.00

Sungod Face Mask was created to feel like a gift to us humble humans from the sun god. It is for the souls who always crave sun rays, who worship the sun’s power, and who, during dark winter months, dream about sun-washed beaches and cliffs. Sungod addresses our innate need for the sun and its literal and mysterious healing gifts. The sun nurtures, warms, dries what is damp, and banishes gloomy or depressed moods.

What goes hand-in-hand with a love for the sun, though, are the dangers of overexposure, from sun damage and premature signs of aging on the skin to the risk of skin cancer.

The Sungod face mask nurtures with sun-reminiscent and historically sun-associative botanicals (those with a correspondence to the third chakra in the body, the solar plexus), from sunflowers and calendulas to wildflower pollen and turmeric root, and it includes hard-studied anti-cancer plants (maitake and shiitake mushrooms, flower pollen, and goldenseal).

Benefits

This soft flower-dust of a mask rebuilds skin tissue that is compromised, damaged from environmental factors, sensitized, or unhealthy. The extraordinary range of nutrients in Sungod comes from roots, mushrooms, adaptogenic herbs, leaves, flowers, fruits, seeds, and mineral-rich Celtic salt.

This is not a face mask that offers a quick but ephemeral brightening or purifying effect. Botanicals with the ability to substantially improve skin health and radiance need to be given a proper chance, with frequent applications and time (at least a few weeks). The results you can expect are an improvement in chronic skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, acne, hyperpigmentation, and cold-sore outbreaks; as well as faster skin healing and improved elasticity, thickness, coloring, firmness, and resilience (such as a decrease in tendency toward scarring). Mature and dry or dehydrated skin will look revitalized, thicker, and better nourished.

The Brand

Our small-batch, organic skin care is based on alive, unrefined, plant-based ingredients. We want to guide you in how to protect the “aliveness,” the life force contained within. If an herb remains fully potent for a year from the moment of harvesting and drying, a skin care product made using that herb extracted in water or included in a mask will remain fresh for about six months. Our products are properly and adequately preserved with high-end natural cosmetic preservatives, but they are not overloaded with the preservatives. We want your products to be safe, but if we used higher percentages of preservatives (like those needed to obtain a shelf life of two to four years), the products might be drying, irritating, harsh, or sensitizing for some customers. Additionally, many plant constituents can’t express their adaptogenic intelligence and full range of healing action if they are subdued with high percentages of antimicrobials.
