ANTIOXIDANT MASK: Vibrancy Revival
The Antioxidant Mask: Vibrancy Revival is made up of vital superfoods that replenish essential nutrients needed for optimal skin health, hydrate and firm, and reveal a healthy glow after just one use. This mask features a revitalizing blend of herbs, flowers, fruits, mushrooms and seaweeds that contain a plethora of flavonoids, polyphenols, resveratrol, B vitamins, enzymes, vitamin C, carotenoids, humectant compounds that mimic hyaluronic acid, polysaccharides, and healing resins. By providing the skin with a dense feast of nourishment, this mask strengthens all skin functions: from the building blocks and protection of collagen, to healthy cell turnover and clarifying skin tone. While this product is well suited to almost all skin types, it’s best for dry, dull, mature skin with a focus on rebuilding, revitalizing, and restoring vibrancy.
Containing 24 beneficial active ingredients and 100% whole plant organic, this mask is a beautiful choice for all skin.
Noni Fruit – Laurel’s noni fruit, sourced from Hawaii, is a potent anti-inflammatory, rich in polysaccharides and B vitamins.
Raw Cacao – Cacao is rich in antioxidants and enzyme activity, as well as both hydrating and moisturizing factors.
Kombu Kelp – Freshly harvested for Laurel off the pristine coast of Mendocino, this polysaccharide-rich kelp is hydrating and strengthening to our skin’s elasticity.
Spirulina – Laurel’s Bay Area farmed spirulina is a superfood boasting an abundance of amino acids, enzymes, and bioavailable micronutrients that provide our skin with the building blocks to be radiantly healthy.
Aronia Berry – Aronia is another fruit we have been loving lately, because not only is it an antioxidant resveratrol rich superfood, but it grows effortlessly in most of North America. It’s such a gift when superfoods don’t have such a big carbon footprint! This one is grown for Laurel by a farm in the Pacific Northwest.
Reishi + Chaga Mushrooms – These two mushrooms organically sourced from the Pacific Northwest contain beta glucan and hydrating and soothing polysaccharides that help drive other nutrients past the lipid barrier. They have a specific lymph affinity to decrease puffiness and stagnation.
Rhassoul Clay – This ‘clay’ is really more of a mineral rich mud. It is not a drying clay, but rather a wealth of minerals such as silica, calcium and magnesium which soften and nourish the skin. It improves skin texture and reduces redness, dryness and irritation.
Nettle – A superfood like no other, nettle leaf is incredibly rich in hundreds of plant constituents like vitamins A,B,C,D,E,K; minerals such as iron, calcium, zinc, and magnesium; and polyphenol compounds to nourish cells with every possible building block to support each aspect of healthy skin functioning. Nettle is a tonic herb, which means it has the ability to powerfully shift health by nutrient delivery.
Dandelion Leaf – This beautifully vibrant leaf provides extensive nourishment and has been shown to brighten and purify.
Lemon Balm – This nutrient-rich green leaf, also known as Melissa, is high in delicate antioxidants that work swiftly to reduce free radical damage. It is specific to mending and soothing inflamed and problematic skin.
Jasmine – Jasmine 3 ways: Laurel utilizes 2 different artisan Jasmine enfleurages in this Mask, as well as delicately harvested local jasmine flowers from one of their herbalist’s gardens. In addition to smelling transcendent, jasmine also evens skin tone and supports connective tissue health.
Frankincense Resin - The water-soluble nutrients in frankincense (which will be present when you steep the mask) have been researched at length for their healing abilities and long term regulating effect on our DNA.

Apply 1 teaspoon or less of Antioxidant Mask to mask bowl and trickle a bit of water in with your fingertips to preferred consistency. Mix with a brush into a slightly runny paste and allow to steep like tea for a few minutes. Allowing the mask to steep will cause it to thicken and will activate ingredients further. Once ready to apply, moisten face and hands. Apply gently to face and neck with fingertips or preferably a mask brush. Leave on for 10-30 minutes, then rinse. Keep mask hydrated to keep mask active and prevent drying on the skin. The longer the mask is left on the more frequently it will need to be rehydrated to stay active. Re-hydrate it with a brush, fingertips, or a mister bottle of water.
Use within 12 months of opening and within 24 months of manufacture date on the bottom of the jar. Keep jar dry to prevent spoilage.
“I believe love is the most powerful healing tool available.” -Laurel Shaffer, Laurel Skin founder + skin-specific herbalist
Founded by skin-specific herbalist + plant communicator + engine of love Laurel Shaffer and located in a beautiful renovated barn in Petaluma, California, Laurel Skin is the culmination of Laurel’s winding journey filled with education, research, and extensive study that led to her path as a sommelier, and eventually skin-specific herbalist. Those formal training paths, as well as her experience in farm, spa, and mindful wellness, have made it possible for her to live the life of a slow beauty advocate and creator of farm-based and hyper-localized spa rituals and formulas. She walks a balance beam with one side in wonderment and appreciation of phytochemistry and the other a world of intuitive trust and respect for whole plant wisdom and ancient traditions. That balance allows her to create formulas of long-standing efficacy.
The Laurel Skin line is a ritualistic range of flower and herb-based skincare, formulated with impeccably sourced, highly vibrant whole plants picked at their peak for unmatched transparency, purity, and results. Firmly rooted in the principles and practices of slow beauty, Laurel’s first and most critical relationship is with the land. Her exclusive partnerships with local artisan farmers ensure the highest quality and most stringent transparency. Their mutual commitment to only 100% organic, raw, unrefined plant materials guarantees unparalleled freshness and efficacy. Laurel Skin believes beauty should be a loving self-care practice that begins and ends with mindfulness.
Leading the way with unparalleled sourcing, a commitment to farmers, and a mission built on transparency, the Laurel Skin line captures California’s hearty terrain and natural abundance in each and every bottle, and relies on their own manufacturing and production capabilities to ensure the freshest, most efficacious products are produced.
Every single whole plant they work with is certified organic or certified Biodynamic®, and they make no exceptions. Laurel Skin partners with artisan farms within 100 miles of their Lab to source all of the flowers and herbs that can grow in their California climate. They begin working with their partnering farms in the Winter during seeding and continue through to harvesting season when each plant is picked at their peak of vitality. Once the plants are harvested, they make their way to the Laurel Skin Lab where they are turned into plant medicine for the skin. Of course, each plant is processed as little as possible to maintain the freshness, purity, and vitality of each plant. Laurel extracts are made in-house, without the use of chemicals, to preserve the integrity and efficacy of the whole plant. All oils used in Laurel Skin creations are certified organic or Biodynamic®, raw, cold pressed, unrefined, and pressed fresh for Laurel by the farms that grow them or by artisan pressers. Their oils are richly hued and have an unmistakably fresh smell: indicators that they are pure and unrefined. Laurel uses only certified organic and Biodynamic® essential oils; many of which are distilled in incredibly small batches just for the Laurel line. Every hydrosol they use is certified organic or Biodynamic® and made exclusively for Laurel Skin by their artisan partnering farmers along the west coast.
Laurel Skin is committed to your health, well-being and, as a result, your beauty. Their commitment begins with the quality of the soil that nourishes and optimizes the ingredients they select. This is the foundation of slow beauty. The Laurel team then follows each ingredient from seed to harvest. Through the season it takes to grow their plants, to the months their handmade blends sit steeping, to the hours they spend bottling each batch, the Laurel Skin team practices slow beauty with patience and intention. Their greatest reward is knowing you feel this when you use their products.
