Imhotep's Balsam Face Mask


Earthwise Beauty drew inspiration from Ancient Egypt practices in the creation of Imhotep’s Balsam Face Mask. This restorative mask was designed to feel like a reparative balm, akin to Nile Delta mud medicine which combines roots, barks, and freshly crushed elemi resin, building the base of this mask’s ingredients.

Imhotep's Balsam is a finely milled powder mask that turns into a slightly sticky, easy-to-spread, reparative paste with just a bit of water.

The powder is a blend of ground Hawaiian alaea salt, nourishing chickweed, and redness-calming chamomile flowers, plus soothing and hydrating mucilage-rich roots of marshmallow, comfrey, and brightening licorice. This mask is great for all skin types but particularly those with dry, imbalance, stressed or compromised skin by leaving you with skin that feels hydrated, replenished, stronger, and more supple.


Measure out 1 teaspoon of the powder and mix with just enough water to achieve a workable, moist paste. Apply onto freshly washed, towel-dried skin and leave on for 30 minutes. Mist with a hydrosol or face toner while wearing the mask. Remove with cotton rounds or a wetted face towel. For an even more nurturing mask, add 1 to 4 drops of a facial oil or oil-based serum to the paste.

From a college fascination in Poland to self-education in aromatherapy and beauty products in the US, Ava Zhan built Earthwise Beauty to satisfy her desire for sustainable and pure products that mainstream brands weren’t offering her. Earthwise Beauty grew from a New York City apartment where Ava was enamored with creating potions and concoctions for herself and coworkers to today’s ethereal brand based in the Pacific Northwest.

Earthwise Beauty prides themselves on their partnerships with organic gardeners, two beekeepers, and a handful of essential oil and hydrosol distillers to create environmentally conscious products while ensuring fair trade practices. Ava continues to explore new ways to develop her brand and has enjoyed increasing her experimentation with her products by featuring flower and gem essences to enhance the inherent properties of the ingredients.
