Alginate masks would effectively revitalize and moisturize skin, improve circulation, tighten loose skin, reduce pore size, lessen puffiness and calm down skin after aggressive skin treatments.

Properties of Alginate
The main component of the alginate mask is algin - sodium alginate or sodium salt of alginic acid- a compound obtained from marine brown algae
Another component is calcium sulfate
When mix with water, these two powdered compounds form a hydrocolloid gel, which becomes a vessel for active ingredients, allowing their slow migration into skin
Because alginate masks have a high water content, they quickly restore skin hydration, which in turn results in a remarkable improvement of the skin’s appearance
At the same time, this method of express moisturizing is superior to paraffin masks or mineral oils, since algin allows easy oxygen exchange and help absorbs and remove toxins from the skin's surface
Alginate masks are also known as modeling, rubber or plastifying masks. It means that soon after applying, the mask sets, following facial contours. The mask remains plastic, so it doesn’t cause any discomfort and peels off easily in a single layer.
No gauze is needed as the mask can be applied directly over the eyes and lips
The mask is activated by mixing the powder with water at room temp. It is removed after 10-15min. There is little or no residue left to clean off the face
Thus, alginate allows the masks to perfectly fit into the shape of the face and body
Alginate masks are natural beauty treatments that provide fast and impressive results
