Why would you want to make your own facial masks? Making your own mud masks can save you money and allow you to enjoy customizable fresh ingredients.  There are many ingredients that can address specific skin types and concerns that you won’t find in products on the shelf due to instability, for example yogurt and avocado.  Here are a few mud mask recipes to get you started! Making your own facial mask recipes can be very fun and rewarding and the combinations are endless!   Most masks will keep in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.

Glacial clay is a great base ingredient for facial masks.  It is an incredibly mineral-rich exfoliating and detoxifying natural deposit with more than 60 nourishing major and trace elements, including Mg, Cu, Z, S, Ag, Si, Ca, Na, K and Fe that promote anti-aging, help skin hold moisture and form collagen resulting in radiant skin.

We harvest glacial clay by hand from the Copper River Delta in Alaska.  The river deposits 60-100 million tons of sediment annually.  We selectively and sustainably carve the creamiest layer of fine silt and clay particles.  You can be certain you are getting the highest quality glacial clay by a company with a commitment to sustainability.  You can read more about our sustainability guidelines and company ethos here.

By adding different ingredients you can boost the mask to target skin concerns.  Check out our free ebook RAW BEAUTY for over 30 recipes!
