Vesuvio Mineral Mask contains 15% Glycolic Acid and volcanic soil it helps eliminate dead cells. Basically, in regular people terms it takes the nasty little dead skin sitting on your face and leaves you with reduced winkles and overall improved skin texture.
Now as for Mount Vesuvio, I know this volcano all too well! My mother was born in Naples, Italy and lived near this volcano. So I am well aware of the benefits of this soil!
Many of the farms are based in the Bay of Naples. Much of southern Italy is formed from limestone and has poor quality soil. However, the area around Mount Vesuvius has been covered with thick layers of ash and lava from eruptions such as that of 79AD which covered Pompeii and Herculaneum with volcanic material.
My mom also told me that the danger of the volcano simply isn’t something that they consider and that it was the quality of the earth under their feet that led them to develop vineyards there – and helped them to keep their operation organic (even back then!)
The soil is formed from volcanic ash and broken down pieces of lava this is what makes it incredibly nourishing . While the ash is packed with the valuable minerals, the porous lava has another purpose – it acts as a sponge, soaking up moisture and storing it, releasing it slowly when moisture is needed.
This ash and lava is rich in minerals and nutrients such as nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium, which are essential for cell rejuvenation.
We don’t all have time for the vigilant skin care habits of French women but indulging in a face mask provides some of the rewards of a spa facial at home. Vesuvio mask boasts an impressive list of ingredients including Volcanic soil, Maris Limus Dead Sea silt, Camellia Sinesis green tea extract & Sodium Hyaluronate.
Now for the next two words – Glycolic, Acid! Sounds a little scary? The word “Acid” alone does a bit, I know. Glycolic acid is part of the group of active compounds known as AHA’s (alpha hydroxy acids). Derived from cane sugar: It has the smallest molecules in the group so is able to penetrate skin deeply and easily, making it the most effective for treating fine lines, acne, blackheads, dullness, oiliness etc. Using this product weekly, (in the beginning, twice a week) has seriously transformed my skin! I wish I had a before picture from a couple of years ago to really show the difference. But I will use this stuff the rest of my life!
How to use : Apply twice a week to the face and neck. Softly massage onto the skin. Avoid contact with eyes and the delicate eye contour. Leave for 10 – 20 minutes then rinse with warm water.
