Sungod Face Mask
Sungod Face Mask from Earthwise Beauty helps to nurture the skin with sun-associative botanicals like sunflowers, calendula, wildflower pollen, and turmeric root, and it includes sun-damage fighting plants like maitake and shiitake mushrooms, flower pollen, and goldenseal. The range of nutrients in Sungod comes from roots, mushrooms, adaptogenic herbs, leaves, flowers, fruits, seeds, and mineral-rich Celtic salt to help over-sensitived and damaged skin look and feel hydrated, smooth, and nourished.
The founder, Ava, created Sungod to address our innate need for the sun and its literal and mysterious healing gifts. 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 and she wanted something that honors the benefits of the sun while protecting from the damaging aspects.
HOW TO USE IT
Measure out 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of the powder into a ceramic bowl and mix with a tiny amount of warm water to achieve a paste. Use your fingers to apply the paste in a thin, even layer onto washed, towel-dried skin, leave on for 10 to 30 minutes -mist periodically during rest time to prevent the mask from hardening - then rinse off. The mask can be used as often as desired.
This botanical face mask is excellent as an in-the-shower mask, too. Add 1 to 4 drops of a facial oil or oil-based serum to the paste for a more nurturing treatment. Or add a bit of raw organic honey for an overall beautifying effect, or both the oil and the honey. Replace the warm water with a hydrosol of your choice.

ABOUT THIS BRAND
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.
